She who has a Guido Reni and a Caravaggio Bacchus on her hallway wall salutes you!

Harvey, old friend/connoisseur, said grappa = gasoline. Actually, I've had some nice grappa.

Heh.

Seal Poet, I'm glad those sad times are in the past.

Please say hi to Mrs. Seal Poet.

We'll be waiting, not too patiently, to see you again in the fall.

How far will you have digressed?

Ah, Sealpoet. Damn. Miss that guy around here.

Used to have his page as a bookmark in the old laptpop. Then that one went fubar and didn't remember to do that with the new one.

Will rectify forthwith.

@bobd,
"Sumer Is Icumin In" is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, canons in print (circa 1226)

Sumer is icumen in,
Lhude sing cuccu!
Groweth sed and bloweth med
And springeth the wde nu,
Sing cuccu!

Awe bleteth after lomb,
Llouth* after calve cu.
Bulloc sterteth, bucke verteth**,
Murie sing cuccu,
Cuccu, cuccu!
Wel singes thu, cuccu;
Ne swik thu naver nu.


Summer has come,
Loudly sing cuckoo!
Seeds grow, and meadow blooms
And the woods bud anew,
Sing cuckoo!

The ewe bleats after the lamb,
The cow moos after the calf,
The bullock leaps, the buck farts,
Merry sing, Cuckoo!
Cuckoo! Cuckoo!
Well you sing Cuckoo,
Nor cease you never now…
ossobuco

I'm 49 years old, and still love (old) Looney Toons. I must have seen every Road Runner carton a hundred times, but they still make me laugh every time

There's a great spoof on Youtube where the coyote catches the roadrunner!
