Yeah. Again...I Do Not Know

I stayed up until the ungodly hour of 11:35 last night to watch David Letterman because both Bill Murray and Bob Dylan were on, this being his next-to-the-last show.
I won't be bothering to stay up tonight.

It was fine. Bill was Bill and Bob was Bob and I doubt that ever the twain shall meet although who knows? I think I would have enjoyed myself more if I'd just gone to bed and read for an hour. Actually, Bob cracked me up more than Bill did. Letterman, in his introduction to Dylan's appearance called him "the greatest songwriter of modern times" and then of course Bob sang a tune made famous by Frank Sinatra, written by Matt Dennis and Tom Adair. Haha! I loved it. And it was a very appropriate song- "The Night We Called It A Day."

Anyway, sorry to see David Letterman go although I never stay up that late but it's always nice to know that if I wanted to, I could.
Well, Stephen Colbert will do fine, I'm sure.

On my walk this morning I saw this guy crossing the road from my neighbor's yard and headed in the direction of mine.

Another oak snake. I believe there's already a different one in the hen house because I found a duck egg, sort of sucked out and collapsed. We must be on some Oak Snake airbnb list or something.

And that's about all the news I have. I can hardly bear to even read the "real" news. Oil spreading over the California coast, droughts, earthquakes, ISIS, man's inhumanity to man and then of course, there are people like the mother in this link. 

Go watch it and take a forty-second break from the crap and the snakes and the horrors and the heat and the eternal weirdness which is humanity.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. Never was a fan of late-night talk shows, but Stephen Colbert ... I might take a gander if I get a chance ... wonderful irony in that man's funnybone.

    The video was hilarious and so full of warmth.

  2. Loved the 'come out of the closet' momma. Loved it.

    And you!

  3. Isn't the news and indeed the world seemingly falling apart? The stories that bother me the most are those that affect innocent children. No choice in matters of war or famine or divergent cultural changes. No resources, no worldly goods, no food, no one with a heart to help them.

  4. I loved that mom. It made my morning. Thanks for sharing.

  5. That was so precious. Oh that every gay child should have such a Mama!

  6. No doubt about it. Things are a mess.

  7. jenny_o- I hope that Colbert's gifts translate to his new show. I'm glad you watched the video.

    Beth Coyote- She's such a queen, that mama! I love you too!

    Ms. Peace and Thyme- It all, ALL of it, causes children to suffer. And yes, that is tragedy.

    Joanne- So much goodness in such a short little video.

    Angie D- Every child, gay, straight, or whatever, should have such a mama! Be who you are!

    John Gray- We may have a few we could spare for you.

    Denise- I have been wondering if the oil is affecting your own beaches?

  8. You'd love our Late Late Show - it starts at 9pm.

    It's shit, however, so you wouldn't really.

    Get Owen to make a No Snakes sign.

  9. Jo- "It's shit, however, so you wouldn't really."
    Good idea! I'll get Owen working on that!

  10. I love that mama. I sent the clip to my daughter who at 17 has so much fire inside of her for love and acceptance of everyone.

  11. The Oak Snake airbnb cracked me up. As did Jo. :-)

  12. Hahaha yes big laugh at the Oak snake airbnb!

  13. Hahaha yes big laugh at the Oak snake airbnb!

  14. I avoid the news most days. Sometimes all you can do is stick your hands in the dirt and carry on.
    I loved the mama too. Laughter is like a spoonful of sugar, if that makes sense.

  15. It's amazing how predators can find their prey. Those snakes know there are birds in your yard. How they know it, I don't have any idea. The same way those red lily beetles quickly found our lily, I suppose.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
