The puzzle perfect. It happens.

Moka, fried eggs with hot sauce,

a mess of grits, smothered in

salsa. NO~it's not at all like putting

ketchup on burnt toast! Yuk. And

the rest of the shiny day to ride

around in a boat=mobile ogling

the college girls. Business, really!

I had to drop off a few things at

the Good Will, didn't i?

My face is a little pink from werk;

it is possible to get an April burn

if you have the right job. Such as

when you have to overfill Five

roll=offs with yard waste from the

parish. Trucks & trailers, i wish i

had remembered to buy sunblock

for the new season. Amorro, i'll

be more careful. Moisturize!

The last clue of the puzzle was

about the Witches of that Scotch

Play...they were seeresses. Yipe!

Talk about being down to the last

two letters in Etoain-Shrdlu^^

i finally figgered out why the

Green=Ghost has been so balky

schtally of late. Seems that one of

the major hoses between the Air

filter and the Engine has come

loose at the clamp. Which also

explains the metallic noise under

the hood. The engineer woulda

found this in a Newark second,

but he's been busy holding a real

job up in the Northeast. Which is

a really good thing. Regardless of

that, i don't mind taking the Bus

to werk on sunny days...and i am

still young enough to fix the tiny

problems that come my way,

mechanically. Hose! Vroom!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Kay & the Wild=Man are state

side for a brief period; we'll see

them both this week=end. Right

after i fill anothre set of echoic

roll-offs. And disposess myself of

a fistful of boxes of Crud, here &

there in my manly manner/manor.

Hearts of my faint heart, these are

my superific sisters who shall guide

my trepidatious fall=foots!

Until the project is complete...

And the puzzle is Perfect.

Watch those UV rays...they can sneak up on you.  I a little pink too!  Wake up!  The sun is back in business.

Glad to hear your sister is coming in.  Enjoy your visit!

Count your blessings w/the green ghost.  When "new" cars make a can't find the hose clamp or loose need a puter sensor to locate the puter chip inside the sensor to tell you it needs air.  $800 later, you realize you should have bought a bus tikket.  

Lovely fotos of G-ma Hane and my mother/father in the early 70's (sideburns, feathered hair, etc).!

OK.  Too harsh on the photo.  Good news is that my mom still looks exactly the same 34 years later.....and dad looks better (couldn't look any worse though).  I'll reserve my comments on unkle skip.  In the meantime (and in the words of the Great First Lady Nancy - "Just say no.")

Agreement>>>my nose is already peeling and the
season is just starting...SPF! Moisturize!
[capsizer:] Since the Engineer gave me the Scanner
i have been posting very unusual fotoes 4 sure...
But~tread lightly on the 70s---i have Artifacts of you
as Well from the Rubik=Cube days!

Etoain shrdlhu? It needed an "h", but I do not know the next letter. I do know that in the Scottish play, the candles are out briefly, but the spot remains ever thus. In the Danish play, the Prince is to the manner/manor born. Most think the latter, but it is the former.

Etaoin/shrdlu is a Cryptoquote thing, but it can
help in Werd=Crosses too. [most common lettres]
Puxxles keep my mind sharp---yet not as sharp
as the Dagger of the Mind!  Shakespeare!

Ah, slac...good werk! The green ghost lives!

Moving to Virginia....

Perhaps a chance to have "Breakfast in Maryland".

Has anyone noticed that telephones don't actually "ring" anymore?  Bells ring....when was the last time you saw a bell in a telephone?  (Hane's house excluded!)

Cap=sizer, don't forget 2 schedule a trip=side
to the source of that Song in Frederick>
fones that ring? Ahhh--i amember it well...
Then around the Millenium, the Engineer GAVE
me an answering machine; it pondres me how
we went so looooong without one!
