  1. Ha! Outstanding! I’m all for this!

    1. Joe Linker says:

      Thanks, Keith. Happy earworm Monday.

      1. And a fantazamic funkamchunk Friday to you!

  2. Love your endearing subs.

    1. Joe Linker says:

      Not one, but two alter egos! Maybe they’ll have kittens?

      1. They’re bound to have kittens, the cast of a novel.
        Mine all demanded parts in ‘Course of Mirrors.’

        1. Joe Linker says:

          I probably should come up with some names for them. Naming cats a big deal here.

          1. Well, there’s the names of famous heroes, or martyrs for all sorts of causes. Or we could record the names of homeless people we come across. An afterthought. I saw a guy today who carried his possessions in 8 see-through plastic bags. He was in good company, talking to his subs. Next time I see him I’ll ask if he’s summed up by a name.

          2. Joe Linker says:

            I don’t know. That all sounds too serious for these cats.

    I do not like it ,
    the loud bugling;
    finer is the stagbelling stag
    of antler points twice twenty .
