The TVM remembers Calma.

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

Depends on what you want it for. Masking tape is essential when painting rooms!

Good movie choice, nl. :D :D

I have a Two Towels photo somewhere that I rescued from photobucket. Must go find it!!!!!11111 8)

So, yesterday we had a local bear sighting. Maybe that's why the dog didn't want to go in the woods out back????

Far as I know he headed out of the area. Hopefully he's halfway to the mountains by now. 8)

Well that puts a whole new meaning to the song: Going on a bear hunt...I'm not scared. :Q

Regarding the Two Towels, I feel bogged down once the fight for Helm's Deep is happening and just want to FFWD the disc. Will that get me smited? :nono:

I want to hear more about The Two Towels?

Nah, it's not just you, nl - when I got to that point while showing the dvd to a friend last month, I could barely recall anything of the book to fact-check it with.
Not even the thread count of the towels!!

I will post links to the others too, as time permits. :D

And today here is a birdy. I took this video just today. Mr. Housewren was waiting for the coast to be clear to feed the younguns in the house, and he sang a little song in the meantime. :D

Butterfly pics are pretty.

Don't see too many butterflies around here.

Of course it would probably help if I went outside.... :P :D

Mr Housewren caught an excellent dinner for the kids.

Nearly all the leaves are off trees now making excellent blankets of brownish leaves. They do get slippery to walk on when it rains.

We've been having lazy weekends, but today we finally decided to start early; we're just finishing breakfast (nearly 10 AM EDT) and I'm in the middle of doing laundry, and we're actually going to get an early start on grocery shopping. Wow.

GORGEOUS weather out there! Cool and sunny! The lilacs in the neighborhood are just about done, but now the mountain laurel in front of our building is in full bloom.
