Readers, I must make this an open thread, since I misjudged the time I would need to spend on my earlier post. (Why do things always take longer?) And I must run errands now, so I can’t issue UPDATEs.
Some topics for your consideration:
1) How are your summer projects going? (Mine has been to entirely rethink the direction I want my garden to go, through an accidental conversation on the street).
2) What are you reading? (I’m reading, among other things, The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant. It’s terrific!)
3) Do you plan to visit your CongressCritter’s office during the Recess, and if so, what will you say to them? (I plan to visit Susan Collins’ office, congratulate her on nobbling TrumpCare, and push for Canadian-style single payer, just across the border from The County!)
Talk amongst yourselves!
And since there can never be enough cute pictures of cats, here’s another picture of the cat that seems to have adopted me, as cats will do:
What an intelligent creature! Storing up energy from the sun, with the object of gifting me with another small animal! (My garden truly is a habitat, with all that implies for what Disney unhelpfully calls “the circle of life”. So, for that matter, is my barn.)
Readers, feel free to contact me at lambert [UNDERSCORE] strether [DOT] corrente [AT] yahoo [DOT] com, with (a) links, and even better (b) sources I should curate regularly, (c) how to send me a check if you are allegic to PayPal, and (d) to find out how to send me images of plants. Vegetables are fine! Fungi are deemed to be honorary plants! If you want your handle to appear as a credit, please put it in the subject line. Otherwise, I will anonymize by using your initials. See the previous Water Cooler (with plant) here. Today’s plant (Peter):
This is a euphorbia houseplant. Of course, this is no longer the Sixties, so most of us are not nearly as concerned with euphorbia as we once were.
