Honeysuckle Summer Evening



Mint and white roses with aspen and a wall of creeping Jenny in the background on the fence. The familiar garden path from the cottage to the maim house. And two panes out of three of the greenhouse--one pane with a trellis leaning and covered with honeysuckle, and reflected in the glass the incredible invisible woman. This is a very peaceful place.

There is a tangle of honeysuckle covering the open bathroom window and when the breeze blows, the scent of honeysuckle fills the room. The glass needs cleaning, the vines pulled some from behind the trellis and the grill over the bathroom window.

The weeds need to be pulled from the spaces between the stones. But I am lazy, and it will wait.



Anyone care to take bets on who gets the job of hosting Meet the Press? We've had the week long wake. It's a fair question to ask. Let's get on with it.

well, David Gregory WANTS it bad....I would love to see Keith, or Shuster or even Mike Barnicle....but NBC are idiots....so we will see how badly they screw it...( oh and where has Joe Scarborough been??? he would love it too- and he would suck at it...)

my son ,6-6, says Chuck Todd....

( and my sarcastic neighbor up the street says that , wait for it....Tucker will get it- cuz he is so young and charismatic.....I almost laughed myself to death...)

Yeah, you KNOW David Gregory is lusting over it, BIG TIME. He thinks he's earned it, but he's blown the show MSNBC gave him, so I doubt it'll be him. They might do a series of hosts, different each week & seeing who the audience responds to. Hey, why not Rachel Maddow? One thing, if it's Scarborough, I am done with MTP. And Tucker would be a complete joke, seriously he cannot do a serious interview.

Hey, the incredible invisible woman is NOT so invisible if you click on the photo! She has great fashion sense, even while gardening!

I think brother Barnicle will get it. Sushter got in too much trouble with the Clintons. Gregory might get it. But I want Keith to be able to give his Special Comments. I like Keith as an advocate for me. Gregory has walked that tightrope of straddling the fence.

Utah Savage said...

Yes, yes DK that's it. Rachel Maddow. Rachel Maddow and Gene Robinson hosting something. And get rid of that fossilized old fart Pat Buchanon.

Unconventional Conventionist said...

I vote for Dame Edna to host.

Utah Savage said...

Yes, Dame Edna would be a breath of fresh air, but we are talking about the almost real world. Where have you been UC. I wrote a heinous blues song for you and Randal but you never showed up. Might have flashed by and said to yourself, not me, oh no, not me.

Randal Graves said...

Tim Russert's corpse?

DivaJood said...

My top three choices are Dame Edna, Stephen Colbert, and Chris Rock.

Utah Savage said...

Jokesters one and all. You guys should get together and do stand-up.

Utah Savage said...

And I have discovered that the word "uvula" seems more obscene than the word vulva? What's up with that?

D.K. Raed said...

... because it contains the second person prounoun so it sounds like you're calling somebody an incomprehensible but obviously latinate name. You Vula, you!

Utah Savage said...

I talked about my uvula blues tomy Admin. Freaked him out. He made me promise never to say the work again in his earshot. He has been trying to get me to clean up my potty mouth since the beginning. Fuck fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck! Now, maybe I have it out of my system for awhile.

Je ne regrette rien said...

Rotating hosts wouldn't be bad if they either A) found someone recognized as fairly unbiased or B) rotated with hosts that have leanings on opposite sides of the aisle. I don't enjoy lefty pap any more than I enjoy righty pap. facts are hard to come by.

Utah Savage said...

Yes, I want to know what the right is saying and thinking, but I'm a lefty. I only get one does of lefty punditry and it comes from Keith. Don't take my Keith away!!!

DivaJood said...

Standup is too hard on the feet.

What's obscene about uvula? It's that thingie in the back of the throat that makes people snore.

DCup said...

So pretty and shady.

Is Chris Matthews out of the running for MTP? Lord, I hope so.

Nan said...

Your space is lovely, very peaceful.

As for MTP, does it really matter? The best thing they could do is rotate the hosts to prevent a cult of personality from developing, but that'll never happen. The networks want celebrity newsreaders/talking heads that build fan loyalty. Whether or not any actual news gets mentioned is totally irrelevant to the suits in the executive suites. No matter how much we speculate, y'all know that in the end NBC will find someone who's a shameless ass kisser or a photogenic moron. There are plenty of candidates out there in addition to Tucker Carlson who fit both descriptions.

Utah Savage said...

God Nan, now I'm really depressed. Tucker would make me want to slit my wrists, same for Tweety. I think Rachel is the perfect one. Take that you homophobic, frightened, racist morons... Rachel and Gene, rotating schedules.

FranIAm said...

What a beautiful place.

Utah Savage said...

Hi Fran, want a glass of wine?

Dusty said...

Brian Williams for right now. ;)

My son's name is Brian William..it means strong protector I believe.

Dusty said...

I am having a glass of vino as I type this..and watching MSNBC..cursing some fuckwit ripping Michelle Obama a new one over stereotypical bullshit.

Blueberry said...

Honeysuckle is wonderful! We have a fence full of jasmine, which smells just as great. Of course, all that stuff has been gone for awhile. It's been 100deg give or take a couple since May 20, so things are withered.

Utah Savage said...

What a Perfectly Southern word--withered, when referring to flowers or leaves. Things are withered during the hottest part of the day here too. Mint droops around two or three in the afternoon. Vinca starts to droop around two.

Dr. Zaius said...

I always leave the weeds the way they are. Who am I to argue with plants?

FranIAm said...

Is it too late (or early???) to say yes?!
