Saturday Serendipity 25 February 2017

Planets, the Oscars, and geeky road trips, oh my.


Seven newly-discovered, possibly habitable planets to ponder. How cool is that?

At 70-something, we are apparently very different people from the people we were at 14. Does this surprise you? I’m of two minds, myself.

Fort Worth contractor guts wrong house. It could have been much worse, actually.

Any excuse to exercise less, IMO. Crazy-brief intense exercise is as good as long workouts.

This is so sad. He was my first pretend boyfriend. David Cassidy has dementia.

10 Perfect road trip locales for literature lovers: From Steinbeck’s home in California to Flannery O’Connor’s beautiful Georgian house in Savannah.

The terribly smart Camille Paglia bemoans the loss of true Oscar glamor. The photos of Faye Dunaway and Liz Taylor alone are worth the jump.

Closer to home:

On Facebook? Some good friends of mine are having a black cat photo contest. Your kitty’s pic could be in a book!

On the blog this week: We got a new piano! Gushy photos here.

Looking for something haunting to read? A gentle reminder: I have books and books for you to check out. (Most are available at libraries, too.)


Have a great weekend!

    Enjoy your visit ( this is going to be a reply list); hugging and laughing are great. I want to read all your books; I only have Bliss House, I am allergic to cats ( 🙁 ) . I thought Faye Dunaway and Liz Taylor were wonderful, and I would truly love to visit Hemingway’s home in Key West and since Flannery O’Connor is one of our great American writers; I would adore seeing where she lived.

    We had such a great time, Skye! I’ll have pictures of the beautiful theater on Tuesday, but no one was allowed to take pictures of the Lion King Jr. production, darn it.
