Megalania Trump

As I have written before, it is not the purpose of this blog to comment on political issues.  

However, I feel that in our current election season, I should emphasize the importance of not confusing Melania Trump with Megalania Trump . . . or, for that matter, with Meiolania Trump

(I must admit that that’s what I tend to do.)

The Lost Shoes of the World

Do you ever see a shoe lying abandoned in some random location, and wonder how the shoe got there, and what befell the other shoe in the pair?

I have seen two such shoes recently.  

The first was a woman's shoe, stuck in the mud at the bottom of a puddle on the edge of a parking lot.  American Toads had laid eggs in the puddle a few weeks earlier; if you look closely, you can see a tadpole swimming around inside the shoe.  

The second was an old red sneaker.  It floated upside down in a backwater pool of a rocky stream, absolutely motionless, forming an odd vista of cosmic peace and harmony.
