    I don’t comment on FA, just an avid reader. A couple years back I was a frequent commenter on Ballard but now I’m just a reader. But here’s my hometown story. I hail from Eminence MO. Smack dab in the middle of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. Jacks Fork River . . . aahhhh! The river is crystal clear with a gravel bottom. Years ago there was a local who fashioned himself a glass bottom bucket. He’d hold the bucket’s glass bottom down in the river and wade around hunting for lost treasures and money from all the tourists who would inevitably capsize in their canoe as they floated down the river. That was the best place to grow up!

    Susan, I think Frog Applause really IS back. For quite some time Brass Orchid has daily made the comment “Is Teresa back yet” and last week one of the Frog Applause comics had written along the side of it “Is Brass Orchid back yet”. And then a day or two later going back to that same cartoon that line was erased. I think she really is back!

    Dogfish Sniff, I for one am digging that fish you’re holding. It would look perfect hanging on my patio here in Florida.

    HappyHappyHappy, don’t know if you read Frog Applause or not but don’t be alarmed. I don’t think Teresa is talking to you.

    Days gone bye. Childish dreams which lingered. Super heroes bubbling to the surface. Pipe dreams to beat the system. Astral projections, real adventures, real times and places. Magic get a ways; safety valves popping; wishful thinking; and answer to stress in the post modern world. Over the counter meds, not as romantic but just as effective. Being old is a privilege not everyone gets.
