Words to live by...

"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

[Spanish Proverb]

Ius luxuriae publice datum est

(The right to looseness has been officially given)

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Apparently, the crossword puzzle that disappeared from the blog, came back.

Home Again, Home Again... Jiggety-Jig


Yes, all is well again. We arrived home on Friday after traveling through, and then staying ahead of, a bit of rain in the last leg of the journey. If I had known it would be raining that last day, I might have insisted we finish the last three hours of the trip on Thursday. But my vote would likely have been overruled by Faye anyway.

In any case, we did finally get home... tired and worn out by the journey... but happy. I was happy anyway... because I was finally able to sleep in my own bed. Faye, not so much because being home meant washing a week or so of laundry accumulated on the trip home.

Chores. My chore for Saturday involved getting a much overdue haircut and then doing the grocery shopping... in the rain. Well, the shopping inside the store did not involve rain, just the trip to the barber shop and store and from the parking space to the door of each.

And my lawn needs weeding (my chore for Sunday). Understandable. The weeds are not the type that can be sprayed without killing the lawn itself and they have been growing for a month so they stand out nicely, making them easy targets.

Still, it's great to be home.

You forgot the most important part -- did you play golf while you were on vacation?

A half a round; 9 holes. That was it for the whole trip. And I played those nine poorly.
