I’ll be showing in 4 shows at Assembly Row this summer. My first show is coming up this weekend. Geoff and I will be there in my red show tent. Come and see us. I have some new merchandise and some “new” vintage wares.

This is Mugsy the American Bulldog.
Yep, that’s right, this is Mugsy. He is a supervisory plumber.
All of the heavy rain we have experienced in the Greater Boston area recently seems to have reproduced the problem that Kelly and I had last October.
Yeah, that problem.
So you get this.
Tomorrow, June 10th, is Portugal Day. It is a big holiday in Portugal in honor of Luis de Camoes, the writer of Portugal’s national epic poem, Os Lusiadas (The Lusiads). Since there is such a big Portuguese population here in southern New England, it is a big deal in these communities. And since my father is Portuguese, I try to remember these important days.
I saw this while leaving work today.

So maybe tomorrow, in honor of the holiday, I will enjoy some good home-cooked Portuguese food, and maybe some wine.
Several friends are performing in BEMF concerts this year. These will be great concerts, please attend if you can. There is a lot of variety here so there should be something for everyone.

here is the definitive proof.
I had not seen this before, so if you have, sorry. But when Dinklage won his Emmy two years ago for his role as Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones, among the people he thanked was the woman who takes care of his dog. How classy and made of awesome is that?
If you haven’t had a good cry lately, here it is. I’m proud that this story happened in my home state and that the individuals involved did what they did out of love and compassion for both the animal and the officer involved.
Rest in Peace, Kaiser.
At least, I hope so.
For some 75 years or so people have wondered what happened to Amelia Earhart. There have been all sorts of theories about what happened to her and Fred Noonan, but many of them were based on secondhand information, old recollections. or weird conspiracy theories. Now we have some possible archaeological evidence near the island of Nikumaroro. Over the years there have been a variety of clues that indicated a possible landing of the aircraft near this island. Now, these clues are circumstantial, but the cumulative effects seems to have been to encourage further development of the sites near the island. Last year a team thought they may have found landing gear from her aircraft. And now a recent analysis of a sonar scan may indicate the possible location of an aircraft in the area where they have been looking for it.
It would be great if we were finally able to solve this open-ended question of history, not to mention put to rest some of the more absurd theories about what happened.
From a friend elseweb:
“Michelle Bachmann is not going to run again! She announced very very early
this morning that this would be her last campaign. She’s facing ethical
concerns, plus the commute back and forth to her planet is a real killer.
That flat, nasal, uninflected serial killer voice will be gone! W00t!“
This absolutely made my day.
Geoff and I are dealing with a LOT of paperwork and details and bureaucracy right now. We found yet another crack in the system, when we fell into it, naturally, so we’re trying to climb out of it. More on that later. Till then, just rejoice with MN.
