MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR THURSDAY, DAY 233 OF 2013: Today, I made my brain do all the work! I  balanced my checkbook and I paid the monthly bills. I also decided that I really haven’t been treating myself very well. For the eighth month in a row I have had a budget surplus. Naturally, Renee thinks we should have more  turkey, liver snaps and chew toys. I thought a subscription to the broadway musicals at the Fab Fox might be nice. Renee countered with, “No way! You do enough singing with the Met’s Live in HD series at the Art Museum.” Then I realized that the reason why we had a budget surplus was because I hadn’t gone to the Opera in quite a few months. And just like Bill Clinton’s trillion-dollar budget surplus in 2000, my budget surplus vanished. Win some, lose some!


So I made a triangular box to hold my mints on my keyboard shelf.DSCF0969

Yum, Altoids’ Wintergreen ... Curiously Strong … and my favorite. Hopefully, I’ll type faster before the mint box empties.

Moving on to the Mensa Puzzle of the Day …DSCF0973

Haven’t had much luck with this one, yet.

And in answer to a remark I heard last week as the bus I was riding on passed the St. Louis Art Museum …

Why does this city waste so much money on this dumb museum?DSCF0853

Monet’s Water Lilies – Center Panel of the Tryptich

And an elderly couple!

One picture really is worth a million words and dollars!


About Robert Edler

... a somewhat unknown and/or imaginary actor, writer, director, producer, photographer, friend, brother, uncle and all round good fellow that you really should get to know because he lives with that most glamorous fourpaw Mademoiselle Renee. (Mlle. Renee for short)

  1. Sometimes people just don’t get how vital art can be in nourishing our souls. Why do I suspect those might also be the same people who’ll dump their trash somewhere in pristine nature?
