Middle Aged Treehouse

I'm only mature in years.

This Just In

Updates to previous entries:

Rex the female Border Collie got her manly moniker because my cowboy neighbor Jeff bought her at such a tender age, they couldn't quite tell her gender. They thought she was a male. So much for the biology smarts you learn on a farm.

The Mystery of the TP Incident is revealed! The perpetrators were Kate's friends: Mindy, a recent grad who is soon off to college to major in music and little Jon from Kindergarten, now the social chairman of the high school choir. Who would have thought choristers could be so naughty and out so late? And throw so well — little white bits are STILL escaping from the highest branches.


Kate is suddenly really into the Rocky Horror Picture Show. But it really annoys her that I already know each and every word. Ha, young one. Tim Curry is mine, and I have the age spots to prove it!

Man, I was only a little older than Kate is now when I first saw TRHPS!! During a weekend trip to Austin in 1076... Oh, my!! Talk about a Time Warp!

Back when people actually sat down and watched it like a movie! LOL

...Although they were already starting to dress for the occasion.

I understand where Kate's coming from. At around age 16 or 17 (for those who are counting, that's only 10 years ago), I decided that Led Zeppelin and The Beatles were music I had personally discovered and that my dorky parents should not be allowed to enjoy that music, too.

My Mom actually tried to get me to watch Rocky Horror when I was in high school, but I told her I didn't like it. ... But that was mostly because my friends didn't like it, and back then, my friends' opinions were mine.

Enjoying your blogs -- the one about your David was sweet -- your mag staff co-worker, Mark

Oh my god, Rocky! My daughter's (Ivy, of course) been into it lately too...

I was just thinking of the first time I saw it, with our squirt guns and newspapers...toast! Ahh, good times, good times.
