Raised in the foothills of the Appalachian Mtns as a Southern Baptist pk. It wasn't unusual. I loved being outdoors while I was growing up and still do.

The more I learn, the more I realize how little I know. My mind travels in a constant flux of mix-smashed ideas and hypothesis.

The Norwegian bog man. Yes. The old, weathered face juxtaposed to a baby's suit encapsulated in glass. Precious? I like the eyebrows. It makes the face less scary, but still 'bogged'.

She's built like a brick outhouse. What's your interpretation?
AstralSmoke comments on Jul 4, 2018:
@btroje, @Sheanutt I grew up with the saying, “she’s built like a brick outhouse”. It always meant she had a sexy body, but it always left a question in my head. After thinking about it (too much) I believe the outhouse represents people. We all go to the toilet. Built or stacked like a brick outhouse just means one’s fit. And after further deliberation in my head (more wasted time) I came to another conclusion, all brought on by a conversation I had with my mom on the way home from her exercise class. As @firecracker commented, outhouses are normally built from wood and not necessarily built well. So a brick outhouse might be well built but it’s just for show. There’s no good reason for it. The first photo is a house just up the street from us. My dad used to call it the outhouse. Perhaps you’ll understand why. The 2nd photo is a new house they’re building about 3 blocks away. Mom said something about it looking like a fancy outhouse. I added the bricks and away we went. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

AstralSmoke comments on Jul 2, 2018:
Funny. You must have a good character. If you need to get a load of mulch again, put a section of chain-link fence flat in the bed, place your tarp over that (if you want to), and the mulch on top of that. Unload the same as before, but tie the rope to the chain-link fence. A redneck taught me that.

My thoughts about what exactly? I'm no English professor and English has never been my favorite subject and although I taught English to Germans for a few years, I don't consider myself a linguist. My kids can't read cursive very easily. They don't write anymore, they type. They are learning sentence structure and stuff (sort of, they're ten). I don't think I'm qualified to answer.
