Andre's Banana bar party must include party games to be really fun though it can be over before midnight because my favorite way to ring in the new year is, drumroll please, snoring. I like to be in bed by ten otherwise I don't get in my thirteen hours of beauty sleep, god knows I need it.

My crazy neighbors like to set off pipe bombs and shoot guns in the air. YEA NRA... not.

There was one new year's party that involved an actual pink elephant, a chihuahua, and several gallon bottles of cheap rum. The elephant got massively drunk and threw up on the chihuahua. There was hay everywhere. As princess of the UNI-verse, Sophia, the chihuahua, banished the elephant and all other pink elephants from the universe for all of time. Time and space are easily warped during a new year celebration, it is all of the alcohol and pipebombs rupturing the space-time continuum.

I'll be showing up dressed as a monarch butterfly. My dress has a skirt that looks like their wings. I also have a cape that looks like their wings. Of course given the temperature all of that will be covered by a camouflage coat five sizes too big for me.

My favorite snacks for a party are chips and dip and make your own sandwich bars. For drinks the fruitier the better.

I think of Andre's bar is basically like the TARDIS it is physically located wherever it is needed most. Oh and it is bigger on the inside.

I named my first computer sam after sam Beckett on quantum leap. That's how old I am. Sam was a pre-ibm computer that ran it's operating system off of one of the really old actually floppy floppy disks. Without its floppy disk it was a large paper weight. I had an extra floppy drive so I could save my files from word star the word processing program it came with.

It took two files and two floppies to save my wip of the time at around 23000 words. I was getting close to needing a third floppy and a third file when I gave up on that story.

Now my flash drive holds everything I have written in35 years plus the pictures from my family albums going back four generations.

Technology, am I right?

The worst thing about candy that I can think of is the way it is going to give my mother-in-law's dog Charlie diabetes one day. You can almost audibly hear him scream Candy the moment it is brought in to the house. He loves root beer barrels and lemon drops, swedish fish are another favorite. Now before anyone jumps down my throat that we shouldn't be feeding him candy, the answer is that we don't. The little sucker can smell it in the package. If he can find and reach the candy he will feed himself. After the Halloween decimation of 2022 we have been forced to keep candy closed in the latching upper kitchen cabinets. We were worried for 24 hours that he had consumed enough chocolate to kill him. He hadn't but dear God the diarrhea was bad.
That's it...candy.

My dog Gracie just loves sammiches. Her favorite is catfood (tuna salad). She acts like it is the same as the food I give the cats. She eats it with the same relish. She also likes graham cracker and peanut butter sandwiches. If I go into the kitchen saying I am going to make me a sandwich she follows me like she's yelling Sammich! she dances around my ankles like a cat would. Then once the sandwich is made she dances like one of those dogs in the circus on her hind legs until I sit down with it. THat is when she whipps out her puppy dog eyes and cons me out of half a sandwich. Which is long story short why I always make two sandwiches when I am hungry.

What an interesting idea to celebrate. Deviled eggs. They are celebration food around here. I have several different recipes for them. THe one I like has mustard and dill relish. Paprika sprinkled on top is good but not a must. The recipe that I end up making for my wife is one with mayo, sugar, honey, vinegar, salt and pepper. I don't like this kind. I think it is kind of gross. It is a Midwest thing I think. Like how they use miracle whip, or as it is generically known, "whipped salad dressing". I was brought up on best foods mayonnaise. NO sweet taste! Sweet does not belong with savory. sweet relish is the excrement of the devil. Down with sweetened savory foods.

National blog posting month. Okay. Let's try to add to this blog for the first time in nearly a year it seems like a good time to try.
Gonna post the links at the banana bar.
Don't have to much to say this morning. I am not full of wisdom or wry wit right now. I had a puddle of cat in my lap until a minute ago. I kicked him out to get on the computer so I would have to say he isn't a fan of this challenge.
Lets see if I can keep this up for a month.

Life changes, as a child you hold toys in your hands, manipulating them, talking for them, using them to cultivate you growing imagination. Gradually, you no longer need them to create your stories, to have fun playing. Your toys move behind your eyelids in the curtains of your dreams. The stories still flow but life has so much more to interrupt the play.

You read other people's stories, you let them play for you. Your imagination muscles grow weaker. What we all need then is the time and courage to pull out our old toys and remember how to play and imagine. That's why so many people feel drawn to spend so much money and so many resources to obtain the things they played with when they were young. The have felt the atrophy of their imaginations. It is instinctual. The problem is that they put the toys on a shelf and just stare at them occasionally, wondering what isn't working. That isn't what will help. If you are feeling the atrophy play with the toys don't look at them.

For those of us who keep our imaginations in constant use with good muscle tone it must be remembered that it doesn't ruin the exercise routine to ride a bike down a trail for fun once or twice. Swimmers don't lose their stamina by playing Marco Polo instead of swimming laps. Writers can pull out the toy cars and blocks and still write The Great American Novel. Play is good for everyone, and toys can be an essential part of play. Take out your dolls and your wagons. Hop on your bikes and your scooters. Visit the lands of imagination so dimly remembered and play.
