  1. I went to sleep with PBS on my tv, and woke up at 3:30 am to David Tennant playing Hamlet, set in modern times, but using original dialog. Patrick Stewart (Picard on Star Trek) was Claudius, Hamlet’s uncle. How am I supposed to sleep when they put this stuff on in the wee hours of the morning?

  2. Yo! WitchyOne?
    If you’re out there, I’ve promised Amber I’d take her fishing now that she’s 7 years old.

    How’s the lake? Boats still for rent?
    Love to read you!

  3. Good mornin’ all!

    Ebb and EV, thank you both for your concern regarding my recent injuries, sustained after I returned home from my travels. My vacation was “extended” to included much needed rest and numerous visits (still ongoing) with specialists, friends and family.

    I am currently on the mend, and very much looking forward to some music therapy tonight šŸ˜‰

  4. Very cute Lady EV..Good May Day eve all…Sorry I have been absent for so long….I do fly over some day’s to try and keep up and check out the Friday music but not enough time or energy to post…Will hurry through now..

    Will give you a quick up date and then must run for a bone densety (sp) scan…I shrank and inch and now am 5ft,3in and the dr’s got excited..Me not so much..Told them it’s gravety that’s pulling me down..LOL.

    RU, would love to see you and sweet Amber but it’s not safe out here so just drive by…I resigned last Aug. because the owners of the resort were trying to steal adjoining property and trees…Managed to get it stopped after a lot of damage and road building was done..The trees are still standing..The attorney for the owners of the damaged property are still haggeling with the resorts attorney..

    The resort owners locked the boats and all the bait shop inventory up in the moldy old house and have only been out twice since then..There is trash every where and I do mean everywhere.

    To get back at us we were served eviction notices in march…Did I mention we have arsenic in the well.?..We had it tested in Dec. and informed everyone..The owners then served us the eviction law suit and stopped the garbage pick up for the park…Soon our septic system will be overflowing since they have not had it pumped..

    4 tenants have moved out already so there are 8 of us left…Been in contact with the health Dep weekly, also the state water people and PUD…

    Seems the owners of this joint never changed the well name when they baught it, still in the old owners name and they have not responded to the water quality people or the health Dept. at all..They also left the electric in the old owners name with the bill going to the resort owner ..Lots of strange business tricks including running all their rigs with Oregon plates instead of our state..

    In a nut shell we are now waiting to see what the suit and our responses are going to do…I’m working on getting out of here and on my way to N.H. as soon as possible..Nearly impossible since we can’t sell everything where it sits, must pay to have it all dismanteled, tough to do when we are all poor on S.S. or disability..

    There is no porta potty and the grass is getting high, only a few fishermen …Saw one nice trout being cleaned on Tues…The lake was stocked as usual…

    Sorry for the length…Wishing you all a Happy May Eve and May Day..Peace, Blessings & Justice.

  5. Thanks for the update WitchyOne!

    Is the little pier safe to walk out on and fish from?

    I’ll try to bring miss Amber by on Sunday if I can.

  6. Yes RU..Made them repair it last July.Watch out for the right side at the end..Missing a float…

    Something you might want to check out is on the back side of the lake..The state put in a new dock a couple of years ago directly across from us on the east side.It’s on the trail that go’s through Snohomish to Marysville…From the public ramp area around the corner from our road turn left at the stop sign, stay left at the fork in the road and you will come to the white iron foot traffic posts just as the road veers to the right…Park where you can and hike in…There is a porta potty at their site and have been told the fishing is very good there also….Blessings

  7. Nice to see you, Great Lady!

    I’m so sorry things have gone so wrong at your place. I hope you’re able to get out of there very soon, and get on your way to NH.

  8. This just in from Captain Obvious:

    The GoM oil slick may be bigger than anyone is letting on http://blog.skytruth.org/

    Skytruth has this being Exxon Valdez sized in about 10 days from now and nothing can stop it.

    I’m getting some more interesting insight from people in the industry. Will be back with more.

  9. Hi Great lady, Hi All,

    Imanaged to get hold of the internet, but I must pay for it first, meaning the boys will skin me alive if they don’t get to use it first.

    I’ll be around later.

  10. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Suing BP and Transocean Ltd. On Behalf Of Shrimp Fishermen

    The owner and operator of the Gulf of Mexico oil rig at the center of a massive oil spill that threatens to become the worst U.S. environmental disaster in decades are being accused of negligence in a class action lawsuit.

    The suit, filed by Acy J. Cooper Jr., and Ronnie Louis Anderson – two commercial shrimpers – on behalf of Louisiana residents affected by the spill, seeks at least $5 million from British Petroleum PLC, which operated the rig, and Transocean Ltd., the rig’s owner.

    Kennedy & Madonna LLP, the law firm of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., is one of the firms involved in bringing the suit.

  11. witch1, I’m really sorry to hear about all the trouble in your spot of the world. It used to sound like a proper little paradise and now?. Am I wrong to assume you are the victim of a hopelessly greedy landlord and fraud?

    Zooey, I don’t know about music night. I have to be in the same room where the kids are supposed to sleep. If I can find some headphones, I might join in.

  12. Two little old ladies were sitting on a park bench outside the local town hall where a flower show was in progress.

    The thin one leaned over and said,

    ‘Life is so boring. We never have any fun any more.

    For $10.00 I’d take my clothes off and streak through that stupid, boring flower show!’

    ‘You’re on!’ said the other old lady, holding up a $10.00 note.

    The first little old lady slowly fumbled her way out of her clothes and,completely naked, streaked (as fast as an old lady can) through the front door of the flower show.

    Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall,followed by loud applause and shrill whistling.

    Finally, the smiling and naked old lady came through the exit door surrounded by a cheering, clapping crowd.

    ‘What happened?’ asked her waiting friend.

    ‘I won $1000 as 1st prize for ‘Best Dried Arrangement….!!!’
