Good morning, Netizens...
Ron_the_cop asked during a Wild Card:
"OK when's the next breakfast meeting at your secret hide away?"
Funny you should mention that, Ron. The inestimable Mr. Hibbs and myself were planning to meet for breakfast at our usual covert location this morning, Wednesday, perhaps 8:00 o'clock for illuminating discussion, trenchant observations on world history and a competent and thorough analysis of the weather. Plus we may have additional discussions of literary merit regarding books we have read since our last meeting, which are, as always, biased and yet cogent.
These mini-Gatherings are, of course, open to the public although poorly-publicized. Most of the time, planning of these events consists of a phone call, either from Mr. Hibbs or myself to the other, announcing the need for breakfast. They invariably take place Tues-Thursday, although we do occasionally include Fridays, but NEVER on Mondays, because that never works with my schedule.
I suppose we probably should schedule a true Gathering for a real public blow-out while the weather still remains in the realm of summer-like, but I will have to fit that into my hectic schedule somehow.
In other news, although she is too shy and reclusive to mention it much, lovely Jeanie of Spokane is planning her dialysis, which may be coming soon, and I encourage everyone to keep our fair consort in your prayers, mumblings to God and other reflections. I was going to suggest standing outside any given public facility asking for people to donate a kidney or two, but then realized Jeanie might not approve of such maneuvars on her behalf.
That is about all of the news that's fit to retell this morning.
