(missus and the easy peasey Monday crossword, and me and a piggy doodle)
My pal Tink has the weekly photo challenge, and here is some ORANGE!
Missus collects fountain pens and she has a few. I have a few too, and this is my set. Parker made what they called the Big Red fountain pen and pencil in the 1930s, but what they call red is actually orange. Classy and cool, eh?

(our purple house)
Where does the time go? Feb 28, 2006 we closed and left our house in New Hampshire with a big UHAUL and 3 dogs and 2 cats and a check in our pockets for central NY. We stayed in my parents barn (it has been restored into a painting studio for my dad) but we sure as hell didn't plan on staying there long, on a snowy hilltop in the middle of nowhere in a little barn room with all our dogs and cats and belongings. We saw this house March 13, said we wanted to buy it and move in right away. Many people were interested in this house, but the purple color put people off, and ours was the most serious offer, and it was 70 degrees, unusally beautiful, March 31, 2006 when we moved in. (it snowed all the next week, totally ordinary!)
So, we spent exactly a month in my parents' barn, and now here in our HEAVENLY purple house for 3 years. :)
Just remembering, I dreamt first of a zombie invasion. They were SO slow and would have been harmless, but they were relentless. (hmmm, Sean of the Dead anybody?) Next i dreamt a friend of mine was telling me I am fat. Hmm, I weigh the same that I have been since I was 17. Maybe even thinner than when I was 17. I think I am going to have to punch this friend in the nose next time I see them, LIAR, SLANDERER!!!!!!!!!!
