Oscillating fans and SHORT FINGERS!

Subject: Oscillating fans . . .

Today someone wrote and told me that they liked something I had written and signed with “your oscillating fan”-

I indeed like to hear from fans, oscillating or not.  But it got me to thinking about oscillating fans- I mean the electrical contraptions that we so depend on during hot weather. What would we do without them? On any given day, in any part or any room in my home, shop or outbuildings, I either have to step over, move or somehow fool with one of my many electrical fans.

I bought a a blue matted wall-hanging for the frame, at the Pittsboro Habitat for Humanity on Saturday, March 29.  I have now re-used the frame and matting for my own purpose and this is what remains:  a 12×9 piece of card stock, beautifully hand-lettered with  the following:  “Somehow a grandma always can find, Such thoughtful, and sweet things to do.  Those warm gifts of love that mean such a lot To her family all the year through.  For a grandma’s wisdom, a grandma’s love, And a grandma’s word of good cheer, Are things that her family needs very much, And cherishes more every year.”  It is signed “Lindsey”.  Additional writing under the signature:  “Our hearts shall be full of love for you, always, Grandma.  Happy Mother’s Day.

Subject: Heavy Metal Bagpipes – Concert Fri, Apr 25, Chatham Mills

Starrlight Mead is sponsoring a concert Friday, April 25th at 8 pm at Chatham Mills for CU DUBH

“The sounds of ancient thundering war drums and skirling dual bagpipes like you’ve never heard before. Tribal warrior music at its best, the warrior music lives on through a new generation. Viking. Pagan. Druid. Celt. Moor. Mongol. Sindhu. Satyr. Mystic. Raider. Lover. Fighter. Like a boot to the head: a thunderous crack with ringing demonic harmonies. Music for the warrior in all of us. The Old Ways are Back. The long boat is here. The wolves are loose. The bagpipes will be used as an instrument of War once again…”
