nachos.

Standard

only with good friends

can you pair wine and nachos

then add in a dash of spicy chat.

‘life is a nacho. it can be yummy-crunchy or squishy-yucky.

it just depends on how long it takes for you to start eating it.’

summer christmas.

Standard

is it one of the hottest days of summer?

is it time for our annual

christmas in july/august celebration?

absolutely.

with long-time friends

turkey dinner

wine

christmas cookies

 stories

and 

odds and ends re-gifts to each other

that we’re highly likely

to re-gift to someone else at a later date

no reason to keep the joy of giving all to ourselves.

‘christmas makes me happy no matter what time of year it comes around.”

where do unicorns go?

Standard

you never really know who’ll sail your way.

 


in the sea, the fish have learned to fly,
on a moonlit night on wings of silver,
as the enchanted stars sail serenely by.
do they know where do unicorns go?
where winged horses fly?…
~Jimmy Webb, “In the Sea,” Das Letzte Einhorn, 1982

 

 

 

 

 

huron river, ann arbor, michigan, usa – summer 2018

torpedo.

Standard

what do you get

when you combine every kid in the city who is now out of school

with a very hot day and a community pool?

lots of squeals, water fights, slides, splashes, and snacks

everyone so happy to be free

all summer ahead of them

 has the festive feel of adults

celebrating with a long night of cocktails

but the kids are hopped up on nothing but pure sunshine and water.

 

‘i feel like a torpedo.’

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Model: Fond 1 as in: “if you can “fond” 1 for less, buy it!”

  • All the convenience of Easy Cheese but maybe less gross? Jury is out on that one
  • Make your own Leaning Tower of Cheeza

  • Use it for mortar in your cracker house. It’s Craft Cheese!
