Have a Great Weekend

A little over a quarter-century ago, I was neighbors with Cricket Taylor, a singular voice from a city with a lot of musical talent and musical tradition. We were both living in arts spaces in Exposition Park, right across from Fair Park south of downtown, complete with communal kitchen and restroom spaces, and the best thing about getting up early for my day job was listening to her practice new songs in the women’s restroom while I was eating breakfast. I don’t miss a lot of the early Nineties, but hearing her again, I really miss those breakfasts.

Posted mostly because of the possibility of a weekend plant show in Austin, home of One Eyed Doll:

Because I’m still asked about high school class reunions:

Have a Great Leiber’s Birthday Weekend

Since today is our oldest cat Leiber’s birthday, time for a pair of classics:

Today is the twentieth anniversary of the death of Wendy O. Williams, the lead singer of the very influential punk band The Plasmatics. I never had a chance to hear the band while they were together (Dallas radio in the Eighties was scared of the subversive tunes of Phil Collins), but catching most of the band’s discography years later, I hated what the Eighties became more than I did while living through it. Rest easy, Wendy: you’ve earned it.

Everyone should have a theme song, preferably picked by someone who really knows you. For those who know my wife, Caroline of Tawanda Jewelry, here you go.

Because there’s always time for songs about science.

Plans. Plans upon plans, and only a few of them happened this week because of the incessant rain. Not that I’m complaining about it: we really needed it out here. However, the joys of driving in the rain with millions of my fellow Dallasites is exhausting, even with such joys as a preview screening of the film Annihilation last Wednesday. It’s okay: there’s the weekend, and this one isn’t taken up by shows and events. I hope.

The streets are full of Girl Scout Cookies tables, and the mailbox is full of seed catalogs. In addition, the North American Reptile Breeders Conference show runs in Arlington this weekend (I’ll be out there early on Saturday, as an attendee and not as a vendor). Yep, it’s time for my favorite gardening song:

Date Night at the Triffid Ranch starts on Saturday, but until then:

Have a Great Weekend

The streets are full of Girl Scouts selling Girl Scout Cookies; the mailbox is full of seed and bulb catalogs. In the gallery, the hot pepper seedlings are coming up, an old friend sent yellow dragonfruit seeds, and at least two more enclosures will premiere at Date Night next week. My favorite gardening song has never been more appropriate:
