Marko at his Munchkin Wrangler blog is having guest bloggers do his thing for a week. He didn't ask me. I'm not as famous as his actual guests (Squeaky, then Breda, etc.) and he has standards to maintain, so. I am right out.
The theme his guests are writing to: "Things That I Love." Sounds like an English Composition assignment for High School. Well, I need blog fodder. I'll adapt the theme to my needs.
All Good Things In Life Are Brown.
Yes, you heard me. Think about it.
Steak (the outside.)
Bourbon (or for you furrener-o-philes. Scotch. I don't understand the appeal of Scotch, but for those that do, I'll grant it is a 'Good Thing.')
Ronald Reagan (the man loved his brown suits)
Truffles and Shittake Mushrooms
Cardboard packages left on your stoop by a man driving a brown truck.
The Mississippi river
Pancakes and Waffles and Maple Syrup
Porkpie and Derby hats
Bread (yeah, lots of stuff featured at Home On The Range)
And. Naturally. Walnut furniture. As cabinetry, or in the form of grips or stocks on a firearm. Pearwood, Applewood, Mahogany and Rosewood are also pretty shades of brown, but Walnut is King.
All brown. All good things.
Are they all good FOR you? Of course not. That's part of what makes them 'good.' Some are. In moderation, perhaps ALL are. But you can't have too many fine milsurp guns. Or too much Reagan.
[* What is Good? To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women]
Seen outside the Broad Ripple Art Fair... - Parked up along the Monon were these two very Broad Riparian steeds: Very unlikely to be confused with the other bikes in the rack. Pedaled into Broad Rippl...
