Martha's closet

Martha Stewart- Oh, no! Martha wants to start a new lifestyle magazine that will tell us how to dress. I’ll follow Martha into her garden. I’ll follow her into her kitchen. I won’t follow her into her closet, although there’d be plenty of room. She only has one brown suit in there, and she wears it everywhere. I used to think that the suit just didn’t photograph well, but she came to Tacoma wearing the same chocolate brown suit, and it is not the TV cameras—that is truly an awful suit, and brown is not Martha’s color. Why hasn’t someone told her? I tried to find the photo of her that I took after her lecture, but it’s been lost (read: thrown away). So, I put the boat photo up. But can't you just picture it?

Rain- We’re in our 27th day of rain. We’ve had over 12 inches during this period, and the ground was already saturated. So, you see, I wasn’t really sick yesterday, it was just that my keyboard floated away.

Whatcha' Readin'?- C. F. in Oklahoma City is reading Dorothy Garlock’s A Place Called Rainwater. The setting is in an Oklahoma oil town close to Tulsa. Sounds good!
