Bales and bales of balderdash….

Ffolkes,

Hajime…. In the interests of public benefit, today’s Pearl is abbreviated, to a degree, simply to be nice. Nice to whom? Well, I suppose that is what we’d call a personal judgment, or preference, and not our problem. We’re nice, and that’s that. Now we’ve settled that portion of today’s intro, we can go on to more lucrative, and, hopefully, more rational discourse.

Of course, finding rationality can be an issue, as well, but, that’s an issue we don’t discuss in mixed company. Boy, if there is phrase that accurately describes my readership, that would be it. Mixed company. I won’t even consider any discussion as to what it may mean, for that would again fall into the personal judgment arena, where we don’t go. In fact, we don’t go much of anywhere, not if it’s got any real connection to reality. How else can we expect to survive this process? We can’t. Nor should we….

Okay, I’m done. Our Pearl today is short, sweet, and, it’s done, so let’s get the slow on the toad, and get on down the page. I can’t think of anything else to put here, so, this is all you get. So be it….

Shall we pearl?….

See? Told ya it was short. It’s also, as we like to say around here, done to a turn. That’s a cooking phrase, meaning, we’re outta here. Go figure, eh? I’ll be back tomorrow, ffolkes; consider this your only warning…. See ya….

Y’all take care out there,
and May the Metaphorse be with you;
Blessed Be, dearest Carole, Mark,Theresa, & Richy
and everyone else, too…

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Which is Why….

Sometimes I sits and thinks,
and sometimes,
I just sits.
