I am finding this aging thing to be a major disappointment in so many ways. I think my mother lied to me. Either that or she was using irony and it went over my head. I was watching the end of “The Mentalist” on Saturday night and the archenemy of our intrepid hero quoted a William Blake poem that is a personal favorite. Why, oh why, do television heroes have “arch” enemies? Isn’t there enough plain old evil and cruelty without having to be an arch criminal? I guess everyone wants to excel at something. Anyway, the poem is “Tyger Tyger”. I used to be able to quote the whole poem. On Saturday evening, I couldn’t even quote the part that the archenemy quoted on the show. I’m blaming age. On the surface it sounds benign, but if you think about it, it’s just another sign of too many dead brain cells crowding up there in the old cranium. I also have a personal theory (which, of course, is right) that the more we cram into our brains and the tighter the fit gets, the poor information that went in first falls out of the ear it first went into. After a while it all gets jumbled together and newer stuff falls out because some of the old stuff gets stuck in corners.
Other than that, it was a good weekend. Rainy and chilly and absolutely no yard work. You would think I hate yard work from my ramblings. You would be right. I love gardening. I abhor yard work which in my vernacular means cleaning out crud and beating back weeds. Still, it was nice to stay away from it all for just a bit.
This is a potholder I made for my BSIL. I do love the edging, but it’s conservative color-wise, because that’s how our girl rolls. I think she would have loved it no matter, but I knew she would really like something like this. That, my friends, is the end of the finished objects for now.
So, to send you on your way, here’s another song cluttering my brain. This week I’m going to share different versions of the same song. It’s a classic……..”Who do you Love?”. Today, it’s by The Misunderstood circa mid ’60s, I believe. It was the first version of this song I had ever heard.
Have a great Monday all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
