Catching up, some lessons and a song

Over the last week, I’ve learned four important lessons. Allow me to share.

  1. Do not move heavy furniture, in the dark, barefoot  – or you might end up in the Emergency Room.
  2. Do not undertake two substantial volunteer projects that share a deadline.
  3. Do consider your excema prone skin when building a swimming pool. It’s likely to cost a few sheckles to convert to a salt water system. And this leads to the final and somewhat humiliating lesson:
  4. Do listen to friends.

Given the above – and the mood engendered this past week – I am unbloggy. So unbloggy that I failed to do a Friday night oldie.

Here is a taste of the – then – newly-emerging edgy 60’s culture. It wasn’t all hippies and the Beatles:

  1. Four excellent life lessons. Please tell me that number one has turned out OK.


  2. Sounds like you had a rough time. My wife has too. Maybe Tom Lehrer would cheer her up (she loves birds with the notable exception of pigeons).


  3. Hey Moe —

    Sorry to hear about your travails. I was a little surprised that you didn’t choose this Tom Lehrer ditty, though:

    It’s one of my old favorites…

    Feel better!


  4. What can I say? I hope you’re getting yourself back together.


  5. Glad you’re back – and stay well and bloggy now!

  7. A hipster you be. Yep, his albums were laying around our house when I was a youngin’.
