'To Start, Press Any Key'. Where's the ANY key?

Remember the video problem I had? Well I think I get ‘er figured out. It’s not that I was weaseling out of getting a video on here, I was having a real tough time figuring it out.
Besides, Weaseling out of things is important. It's what separates us from the animals! Except the weasel.
But these videos are taking waaaay too long to upload and I think I will just give up for now, maybe later. Unless of course, someone has any advice to offer to make things go smoother.


After hearing some rumblings of the bridge being usable, I was fully expecting to hear our constant companions, the dump trucks. But yesterday afternoon only saw about 8 trips by cement trucks going by. So the world is not exactly back the way it should be.
Sure, the sun still rises in the east, the world still rotates on it’s axis, the birds are still having sex with the bee’s, (as is my understanding), but we are not quite whole again.
I have not been out to see what the gossip is that’s surely buzzin at a hi pitch.
Why go out? We just end up back here anyway.
Mrs. Barn checked out the new veggie stand in downtown Siene Bight yesterday. (yes, she got out), and came back with glowing reports. Lots of good looking veggies at good prices. They told her that more will be in stock today and tomorrow. (photo’s soon to follow, if I get out)
Our usual source, Greg, has been somewhat of a disappointment lately. He never has much and what he does have is not that good. I think he is supplying the restaurants before he gets to us. I can go to S.B. for veggies, no problem!
Raining right now, might have to start the day with a nap!


Now, I dare any of you to sing this little tune, or just hum a few lines and tell me if it doesn't get stuck in the 'ol brain compartment all day long.
I double dog dare ya!

Oh - why has it taken me so long to find this blog?....... Barnacle you have given me a chuckle every day since last Friday when I "discovered" your blog. In what is one of the most stressful months of my existence it helps!

Now that's what I call poetry.
