Blondes After Gismo

I finally bought a woodburning kit so expect pictures if me accidentally lighting myself on fire sometime in the bear future.

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.

99-Year-Old Lady Sews A Dress A Day For Children In Need 

Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.

Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

What do we say to the god of death?

  • Persephone: knock knock
  • Hades: who's there?
  • Persephone: it's September hope you're ready to bang like a screen door in a hurricane

You remember too much,

my mother said to me recently.

Why hold onto all that?

And I said,

Where do I put it down?
