Today at Poetic Asides, LeeBee has us throwing down haiku. The lake is Big Blue The sun shines warm upon it. I float lazily. Dedicated to Camp Pendalouan, which I miss all the time.
I went swimming today. The OSU locker room is the typical maze I’ve come to expect from my locker rooms. What surprised me was instead of solely community showers there were also individual stalls.

I’d like to talk to all you old people out there. I enjoy your long stories. Several are quite entertaining. But something bothers me. Programming VCRs.
