5 years..

...Happy 5th B'day to AZ!  My illegitimate child is still kicking.  I must admit there were times I wanted to abandon it but my embedded Catholic sense of guilt kept me coming back.  I may not have shown it the attention it deserves over the years but I'm still baby daddy.

And happy B'day to America!

As always I will post my favorite Americana picture ever.... Elizabeth Shue wrapped in a tattered Old Glory on a desert landscape:

Adventures in Babysitting

It's got this "Grapes of Wrath - Rosasharn" thing going on...at least for me.

Even in a seemingly barren, American landscape there is beauty and fertility.

I'd like to hold on to that notion...especially in this country's current state of affairs.

Isn't she beautiful?

Happy Birthday to AZ and America! I celebrated by having my IT guy figure out why I couldn't access this site from home and fix it. I don't want to miss anything. Sent your b'day gift thru PayPal. I so appreciate what you do.
