Paul Newman's Eyes, The Bones Of The Mastodon

Feeling dreamy this morning and I dreamed of Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward last night probably because of two things: scallops and cat food. My camera didn't work, it had water in it, so I didn't get a picture of those pretty blue eyes, as blue as scallop eyes, of the man whose name is now on spaghetti sauce, cookies, and cat food.
"All profits go too charity."
Pretty simple philosophy and Maurice does like his pates for kitties.

Speaking of which, she is well. Very well, constantly hungry, being a cat, lounging about, always on alert even with her eyes closed.

Now she has gone to check out the birds on the feeder.
Oh, Maurice.

I think I am going to do something with these boys and their mama today.

I ordered a cast cover for Gibson last night so that he can more easily bathe and perhaps even get in the pool. We shall see. I don't know what we're going to do together but something to get Gibson out of the house and it's hard because it's so hot and buggy outside and the mall is just boring and stupid and we don't have an aquarium. Maybe the museum. We can push him around in the stroller and gaze up at the mastodon skeleton, pretend to pilot the riverboat.

But first a walk, make my way out of this dreamy land I'm in, struggle softly through it like a newmade moth from the silk curtains of the cocoon.

Good morning.
Happy Friday.
Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Those are cool people to dream-meet!

  2. Come to Atlanta. We have an Aquarium and a children's museum and Lego Land and World of Coke ect..ect..ect...blah, blah, blah, blah blah. The Homewood Suites in Alpharetta tends to have great rates. Just saying...

  3. Any 3D movies playing in air-conditioned theaters?

  4. I'm kind of fascinated by your relationship with Maurice, the way she just showed up and joined your life, the peace she seems to impart.

  5. Jo- Joanne was so cool. So was Paul, actually.

    Lisa- Ah! But there's gas to get up there and so forth. But it does sound heavenly.

    A- We're trying to get him standing up. But we'll probably do that before the time comes when he's out of this cast.

    Angella- It's so odd. As pragmatic about her as I'm trying to be, I can't help but love her on some weird level. She picked the right house to ask to come in to. And that's the truth.

  6. Looks like you will have fun with those boys.

    I know you make your own spaghetti sauce and probably don't buy any of Newman's Own.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
