Senseless Sunday

I have been saving little tidbits in my head in the hopes of collecting enough debris to do a fully-fragmented blog. But, let's just face it my head is too full of debris already and the new bits are in danger of pushing out the old bits along with any trash that is accumulating in there! 

~ I have embarked upon the quest of reading Mark Twain's autobiography. Let me tell you, for a man with no access to blogs to record his life and even a man that has that access his memory is incredible! The entire work, which will encompass three volumes, will be a sight to behold. I have the recently released volume one and the size alone is impressive. Then to read his stories and witness his sarcastic wit a man after my own heart is amazing. But, it will take some time for me to finish...

~ We have wonderful neighbors ok the crazy family down the street not so much . The other night I had a massive fish-fry with the bounty recovered on a recent outing, sent a plate piled high next door and would have sent some across the street, but they weren't home. Just as I was finished cleaning up the grease which was thinly layering the kitchen there was a knock at the door. My charter captain neighbor had pounds more of freshly caught and filleted Amberjack to hand over. We seem to have the fishes thing down, now all we need are the loaves of bread.

~ I recently read a very funny post at Life of a New Dad talking about Toy Story toys. It called to mind an outing with Teen when she was much younger and very much wanted a Woody doll. Imagine my much younger self's amusement and horror at walking through the local retail store with a small girl loudly insisting that she wanted "a big Woody." Ahh, Disney, yet another laugh you take at a parent's expense.

~ Speaking of laughs at my expense here is one just for you... I have been blogging for 2 years. I visit other blogs and make comments much of the time.Yet it was only recently that I actually read the boxes under the comment line to see that you can subscribe to comments. No. I. am. not. kidding. I harp on kids weekly to read directions yet, here I was ignoring the directions and trying to remember where I commented so I could go back and check to see if there were any responses. Then I stopped commenting on people's comments because I thought, well hell, they aren't going to remember and come back to check so who cares right? DUH! So, now I will be a better replier - I promise. If you click that little box you will receive a follow-up comment. 

Now, what are you waiting for...leave some comments!


  1. Fragments are blog-worthy. Half-past Kissin' Time has a feature called,"Friday Fragments".

    It took me 2 years to start subscribing to blogs through Google Reader. I haven't discovered this feature you speak of...And I'm coming up on 4 years of blogging!

    Fun post.

  2. I do click that follow up comments sometimes. Though my hope f people come answer me at my own blog- being the lazy person I am.

    I think people back then had better memories because maybe the lack of computers/blogs, etc. they had no easy way to jot tings down all the time to remember later. they just had to remember it all...
    Our life of ease makes us dumber

  3. ~Bad Momma: I will check out half-past thanks. Yes, I am just tech savvy enough to get myself into trouble!

    ~Kim: You may have a point there...

  4. It's been 2 yrs already??????

    These are great fragments.


I promise to read it if you write it!
