Unrelated Rambling Thoughts
It's only mid-August and the first big V of honking geese flew overhead. If they're on their way south (Susan as Herself, watch for them, they were headed toward Chicago.), that means summer is nearing its end. I've barely gotten used to it being summer.
I don't own bongos, but I was thinking how wonderful it would be to be known as Queen of the Bongo (in a regal, fruit-on-the-head, Carmen Miranda - Desi Arnaz sort of way).
Hawking "Cheap Tickets to Paradise" has got to be pretty tough right now. I saw this advertised and wondered where paradise is. Turns out, it's a lot of places, some of them not so very nice. The ad said, "Buy a travel toothbrush. Find Fido a kennel. Compose an "out of office" message--and try not to giggle with joy while you're at it." Yeah, buy a travel toothbrush, but not the toothpaste, because you can't take that with you on the plane anymore. I'm going all out from now on with the full size toothbrush and toothpaste in my checked luggage.
(Yep, I meant it when I said unrelated rambling thoughts.)
