So, by way of good morning, here's a decent partial pano of my view of the world.

The most important part of it is that I'm up off the surface and it's kind of like being on a crag top looking over the trees at the Sierra Nevada. The air's a bit different up here, the wind's direction more noticeable because of the trees.

Another, very very good thing, I get to visit my pet cats, for which I'm not responsible and do not have to feed. Right now, having had my mush (delicious, by the way) and sipping my ration of coffee, I can see but not pet the slacker, Roofus.
Roofus.  "I'm a cat, spelled C-A-T-ZZZZZZZZ...."   <br/>

The near-perfect pet for a limited budget. I've got birds, too.

He neither toils nor spins, like in the bible's description of the birds of the air. I guess the biblical authors knew there are birds of the ground, too.

Have a great morning. I shall.

Things are not going down hill for MFM, but are on the upward trail right now.

Potential for moving to North Fork seems rather good.

Like you said, neebee, look out for surprises today! Woo-hoo!

Another coup for the old mfm, the venerable Tami chimes in. The Flames (real and honorary) are honored. (that's Ruby right there still going strong at 14 years though she has grown on herself and me).

Was he controversial? Yes indeed. Did he hawg the bandwidth? Only time will tell.

A few things I did not know.

He then worked on a farm, in a potash mine and as an apprentice stonemason before studying sculpture in Duesseldorf and West Berlin. He began writing poems and plays in the early 1950s, worked as a journalist, played in a jazz band and illustrated some of his own books.

That pidgin watcher looks strikingly like my Katz Tommy and Buster (and to mention the others in the band, Petey aka Midnight, Althea, Mike, Ricky and honorary member my mom's cat Abigail.

Yes neebee, before Kirby, Rowdy and Ruby I was quite a cat fancier. Is there a Spanish or even a Spanglish word for a group of three composed of two males and a female?

Got some photos somewhere.

Evel - I'm a little embarrassed (probably not the last time) to say that I've only read the big three. The so-called Danzig Trilogy.



On your recommendation I will add your favorite to my list.

Steidl Publishing house, Goettingen. They are producers of the finest quality photography books by significant photographers. Their method on quality book publishing includes using the berry vest paper, their own press, and a staff which reflects at all levels its international character.

http://jmcolberg.com/weblog/2009/11/photography_now_an_interview_with_gerhard_steidl/

It so happens I never knew about this highest end publisher till yesterday when I searched for books by Icelandic Nobel Prize author Halldor Laxness and found that his books are exclusively published through Steidl and that Gunter Grass was one of their mainstays, who committed wholly to them as well.

I've never read the books, myself.
