Some catching up
***Monday May 4, 2015 One of the other two tenants left, absentmindedly taking the other's car.

***Tuesday May 5, 2015 The bad tenant was back, not bringing the car.

I think this was when I began to feel I was in a soap opera. Without the sex.

***Wednesday May 6, 2015 NYTimes opinion piece on Catholicism had 666 online comments when I looked at it.

***Freelancers Union event: "Branding Yourself as an Expert."

***Thursday May 7, 2015 National Day of Prayer, proclaimed by the President. Free story idea: What happens if the US ever has an openly agnostic or atheist President? The tradition would probably continue.

***UK elections. Whenever I begin thinking the US would be better off with a parliamentary system, either the UK or Canada will helpfully prove this wrong.

***Linden Hills Adult Children Anonymous meeting.

***Sunday May 10, 2015 "The United States could relearn a thing or two from British politics -- specifically, how to relocate the pragmatism that once prevailed on this side of the pond." Subheading of opinion piece in the Star Tribune (Minneapolis daily paper.) The continuation is headlined "Polarization is less present in British politics." Author? "Lawrence R. Jacobs is director of the Center for the Study of Politics and Governance at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs."

"Let's take a train to Bermuda"?

Gonna need quite a tunnel for that.

Let's Get Away From It All

Let's take a boat to bermuda

Let's take a plane to saint paul.

Let's take a kayak to quincy or nyack,

Let's get away from it all.

Let's take a trip in a trailer

No need to come back at all.

Let's take a powder to boston for chowder,

Let's get away from it all.

  We'll travel 'round from town to town,

   We'll visit ev'ry state.

  I'll repeat, "i love you sweet!"

  In all the forty-eight.

Let's go again to niag'ra

This time we'll look at the fall.

Let's leave our hut, dear,
 get out of our rut, dear,

Let's get away from it all.

(And thanks for prompting me to look up the lyrics. I've had bits of this floating around inside my cerebrum for, probably, well over half a century.)
