More Theories

Friday night and the Super Dudes just left my driveway. I've cracked a beer and have Keith on the record player.
I swear to you- at least two of the songs on his album are about Mick Jagger.
He's been married to Patti Hansen for thirty-something years but he's been married to Mick Jagger for over fifty. Say what you will about Keith but when he falls in love, he stays that way.
Something to be said for that.

Anyway, Super Dudes. Yep. We had quite a day. We did go to Japanica! and I finally figured out why I can't take a decent picture. My iPhone camera is just fucking fucked. It will not focus. I feel completely lost. Isn't that ridiculous?
Here's a blurry picture of Owen drinking miso soup.

And here's a blurry picture of Gibson sitting in our friend Tom's boat which has been in our yard since gator season.

Okay. That's all the blurry pictures. I hate blurry pictures. 

Mr. Moon's back in Georgia so it's just me and Maurice and Keith once again, now that the boys have gone home with their dad. And that's good. It's fine. It's been a long and interesting day. There were archeological digs and dirt-face-painting followed by showers and a walk to the post office and egg gatherings and garden-sprinkers-turning-on and a puzzle was done and most of a book read and chickens fed and so forth and so on. As usual.
I think I got an egg from every one of my layers today which does not include Lisa Marie because she's missing. Mr. Moon went to close all the chickens up last night and Lisa was not cuddled up with Elvira in the little nook where they go to roost. I haven't seen her all day either. I called my next door neighbor who also has chickens and she hasn't seen her but she'll keep an eye out. I can't even imagine what took Lisa Marie. She's a damn big hen, at least twice the size of Chi-Chi or Cha-Cha and I don't think a hawk could grab and carry her off and since she disappeared during the day, I find it hard to believe that a fox or coyote got her but something did unless she wrapped her possessions in a bandana tied to a stick, put it over her shoulder and jumped a freight train. I'd love to think that's what happened to her, but I sort of doubt it. 

And so it goes, once again. Somehow today I still managed to wash the sheets and remake the bed even though Gibson wanted to lay on it and giggle while I tried to put the sheets on, and so I have clean sheets to look forward to tonight. I also read an article in the New Yorker about Henry David Thoreau which I loved because it was highly critical of old Thoreau and his faux getting away from it all there on Walden Pond which was lively with picnickers in the summer and ice skaters in the winter and where he was a twenty-minute walk to his mama's house where he'd go at least once a week to eat some of her cookies and visit with his family. The man was not right, y'all. And I have a theory that probably one out of a thousand people who quote him have actually read his most famous book because it's virtually unreadable and so full of self-righteousness and poppy-cock. 
To be kind. 
I never could get past the first chapter of that book and so reading the article for me was like hearing someone else pointing out that the Emperor was not wearing a stitch of clothing, no matter how proudly he strutted in the parade, his virginal dick swinging in time to the music for all to see. 

Oh! Ms. Moon! How you speak!

Yes. Yes I do. 

The chickens are put up. No Lisa Marie in sight. Maybe she's in New Orleans, strolling down Bourbon Street, or pecking discretely at the crumbs of beignets at Cafe du Monde. Which makes me think about the trip Mr. Moon and I took to New Orleans when we were first falling in love and the strange and magical things which happened there. 

Luna The Longest Living Feral Cat and Maurice are having a howl and mewl face-off right now and the sky has grown dark. Hissing has ensued. 

Here's a picture I took of the little hook-and-eye moon with a "real" camera.

And here is the gratuitous picture of baby Gussie Glinden that Jessie sent me today. 

Look at that pretty long, skinny boy. Take it in now because he's going to be fat as a little sopapilla before we know it. 

Poor Henry David Thoreau. He probably just didn't get enough tittie. 

I think Walt Whitman did. 

Let's all sleep well tonight. 

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. And let's not forget that every single woman and widow within a 50-mile radius was dropping by with a "casserole" for old Thoreau.

  2. You make me laugh so! And you know, you have mentioned that trip to New Orleans, that you and Mr Moon took, several times over the years of my reading here and it always sounds sooo intriguing! What happened?!?! Is this a story you think you might ever tell us? Gosh, I hope so. Oh and I hope Lisa Marie comes home too!

  3. Not enough tittie! I am in bed waiting to get sleepy and you gave me my last laugh for the day. I was actually wondering where you were because you hadn't posted. Glad you had a good day. I will keep an eye out for Lisa Marie.

  4. Little Gussie is a splendid baby, very alert in that photo.

  5. How you speak indeed! I love how you speak. I also love those gratuitous pictures of Gus and also of Owen and Gibson. And we all get another one (a girl!) in awhile.

  6. you have a lot of very cool super dudes.

  7. Thoreau was a loner. I understand. Maybe a supreme introvert. We are a different lot. Glad that the family is doing well.

  8. Anonymous- Haha!

    Angie D- One of these days. I promise!

    Birdie- Glad I made you laugh!!!!

    Leisha- He has such very dark eyes. He looks like a very old soul to me.

    Jill- Can you believe it? A girl child!

    Angella- This is so true. Super Cool Dudes.

    Syd- From that article yes, it pretty much said that he didn't like people much at all.

  9. never read Thoreau or Whitman for thet matter. not much for poetry. I did however have a hard time with Joseph Campbell's Primitive Mythology. The first chapter was all about Freud and I personally think Freud was a misogynistic fraud with all the penis envy in the girls and the boys that want to fuck their mothers and it pissed me off, I couldn't get past it. I did eventually read the book but it was a couple of month later before I piced it up again.

  10. Agreed on the Thoreau. Hallelujah. He might have been one of the original American mansplainers.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
