Name:
Location: Seattle, Washington, United States

What you have here is an old guy. In education for 30 years, started teaching elementary, ended as library and media director of community college. I've enjoyed mountain climbing, sports car rallying, was pipe major of a bagpipe band, played guitar and sang during the folk revival, walking and hiking later in life. Now fairly sedentary. Enjoy reading, esp. mysteries and fantasy, but my reading is pretty eclectic. Enjoy movies, giving Netflix a workout.

Merry Christmas

And a Merry Christmas to all. We do presents with the family on Christmas Eve so today was quiet. It rained pretty hard all day so we went to the movies. Saw Audrey Tautou in A Very Long Engagement. Audrey's fiancee is missing after World War I and she is determined to find out what happened to him. Beautifully shot, it shows the horror of trench warfare in that long ago time. Also some lovely scenes in the countryside and along the coast of Brittany. I recommend it highly.

I'll be away for about six days, so don't expect any blogs. Quiet time at the cabin with some male friends with whom I have been spending the time between Chirstmas and New Years for thirty-four years. Eat too much, nap, tell lies, and watch movies with the occasional argument (they call it discussion) about some piece of trivia, often movie trivia, but sometimes history, geography and other important stuff. Much fun.

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
