Here you go. It's generosity.

I dreamed I started a band and named it Dixieland Stain.

Our friends,  Darlene and Downwind Nicole, have started their new life and their new blog, Where the Wind Goes.   They're finally living in a van down by the river!  Woohoo!

In a van down by the river 

One thing, ladies:  you have comments turned off, and THAT WILL NOT DO.  I will just text you my comments in the wee hours.


I read Kahlil Gibran to Annie this afternoon, but it didn't go well.

R: Those who give you a serpent when you ask for a fish, may have nothing but serpents to give. It is then generosity on their part.

A: I get that. It's like when some guy goes, Man, can I have a dollar? and you give him a turd.

R: Because that's all you have. It's generosity. I don't have any money, but my pockets are full of turds. Here you go.

A: Turds were buy-one-get-one so I stocked up.  You're welcome to have some.

R: Okay, I'm going to start reading again. Let him who wipes his soiled hands with your garment take your garment. He may need it again; surely you would not.

A: Because you just gave him a turd.

Outstanding! and well, yeah.. they need to enable comments! jeez

Here's a ponder for Annie ... Stephen Wright asks... What's another word for "thesaurus"?

I'm not a big turd fan... not really a snake or fish fan either.

I kinda scope out someone a bit before asking them for something... you never know what they may have in their pockets.

HAHAaaa love Nicole and Darlene's tribute to you two... a owling and a planking.. hahaaa

you kids

If it's all the same to you, I'll just take the dollar!! You can even keep your tunic.

Bob said...

Thanks for the morning laugh! :) :) :)

I've often thought I'd offer a turd or two (is that 2/3, or two turds?) to some of the beggars out on Mariahilfer Strasse. Some of them can be really annoying.

Thanks for the morning chuckles. Darn it, I want to be living in a van down by the river....

Comments turned off? OK - stand back - I'm goin' in.

Carolyn said...

Come on Annie, serpents can be as good eatin' as fish.

But I'm in a "one with the universe" mood (unusual for me I know), so in all things ask yourself:

1- Do I understand that the turd is not about me, it's about him?

2- What can I learn about myself from my reaction to the turd offer?

Just sayin

Annie is probably the only person in the world who would appreciate this exchange with my mother:

I don't know what to do about your Daddy.

What's he done now, Mom?

We-----llllll. The doctors have him on all this medication. He swallows so many pills a day. I swear, that man would swallow a turd if the doctor gave him a prescription for it.

Thanks for the laugh!!!

I have one more rock band in me. I'm gonna call it The Artificial Hipsters.

You and Annie might also enjoy The Profit by Kehlog Albran. It's available on Amazon.

I think a turd in the pocket is better than a turd in the punchbowl. That would really suck.

I KNEW you two we were going to be out of control (more so than usual) when someone referred to you in the comments on my blog. Our recent posts seem to run along the same line.

GMTA??? Skeeeeeery!!!

Carrying personal turds as weights of past transgressions.

Turdless pockets of enlightened expression of self.

Cyndi and Stumpy said...

I was thinking "DMTA" (dirty) And, NO! I will NOT share my bidet!

Carolyn the Elder, Annie is tongue-tied considering this Wrightism you have presented.

Donna, I wish I had a dollar to give you, but here's a ...

Bob, my pleasure. Literally - I laughed, too.

Bob, are you back in Vienna? I was going to say that Canadian streets sound so exotic, but then I remembered that they don't. I think if you gave even 2/3 of a turd it would establish your street cred.

Teresa, you and me both. They put the "mobile" in the mobile lifestyle.

Kim, don't go in without backup!

Carolyn the Zenner, these are worthy considerations. Are you saying that there's no separation between me and the turd?

Andra, ha! Your poor dad. It's cheaper to get turds OTC, if he's going to swallow them. At least get him to go with generic turds.

Gail, thanks for laughing. It shows a certain charity.

Sue, OMG! Hilarious from hip to bowel. I'll check out that Allbran guy before I have to be generous again.

Cyndi, we were in sync for sure! Even the Stain. Maybe your travel undies were from New Orleans (Dixieland).

Ish, are you saying Nirvana is a turdless pocket? That would make all the recipients of my gifts bodhisattvas, helping me to empty my pockets and reach enlightenment. Awesome!

Contessa said...

Hmmm....tooo turdy, oops. I mean heavy for me.

The Good Luck Duck said...

Right? I love sharing culture with people. Bacterial culture.

Brett said...

Dammit! I need some sort of 'Like' button when I'm feeling sick and lazy, and can conjure no turd-worthy comment of my own. Other than maybe something about a disproportional number of Bob's...

thinking...thinking...crap...

The Good Luck Duck said...

Brett, many's the time I've wished for a "like" button. Sometimes the wurds just won't flow.

TexCyn said...

Well damn, thanks for sharing their blog, but what's up with the no comments, nor the follower button?? Oh well, I had to resort to bookmarking them in my favs instead...beware, they may get "trapped" in that folder! forever because I might forget to check on it...be warned girls! It might get stuffy in thar, teahre, thaer, there. damn le,,jey..keyboard. .

The Good Luck Duck said...

I know it, Cyn. They've been warned, so now their fate is in their own hands! Is there also no "Folow" button up in the top bar?
