My Personal Blogosphere

Blogs and Blogging...



PTG at Plains Feeder has a poignant Mother's Day post. What he says about mothers could well apply to fathers, sisters and brothers as well. Life is short and uncertain. If hard feelings can be resolved, it's good to do so because you don't know what tomorrow will bring.

In the ongoing drama of The Heeler's Diaries, my friend James has recently attended the wedding of his feminist cousin Pauline. (Start at the bottom of the page and read up.) I try to read the Diary every day. It amuses me.

Sarpy Sam, author of Thoughts from the Middle of Nowhere has been posting some beautiful photos of springtime on the prairies of Montana as well as his usual commentary about events on the ranch, Montana, and agriculture at large. Here's a nice photo of a landscape with sharptail grouse.

Larry at Riverside Rambles recently posted an interesting photo essay of an old roadside motel with a set of cabins near Hannibal, MO.

I enjoyed Michael Leddy's post at Orange Crate Art about an old advertisement for Alka Seltzer. It reminded me of Fizzies, a tablet that you dropped in a glass of water to make a sweet, bubbly drink. Oh, what fun. They were around in the late 1950's, I think.

The Pondering Pig has been considering the top 10 worst song lyrics of all times. Apparently he doesn't listen to much C&W, because I'm sure that genre could offer some contenders for the list.

If you don't find something interesting to read in this list, feel free to check the links at my Bloglines account.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)

Thanks for reading.
