For those of you who are remembering that I promised to share with you my most favorite road sign EVER in an upcoming post, please be assured that I have not forgotten my promise. That road sign will appear in the near future along with the next installment of our National Parks Trip #2 story. Before I get to that, I wanted to share with you some random reflections about a few different topics or happenings that have been on my mind this week. I don’t know about you but, if I don’t write it down immediately, it will be gone forever!
"Miscellanea." What a delightful word! It sounds to me like it should be the magical town where all singular socks end up, all lost reading glasses convene and all the little screws from the whatchamacallit that Alan said not to lose can be found. In my mind, the little town of Miscellanea might be found in the middle of the wheat fields of the Midwest or on a remote mountain plateau in the Rockies or even in the Alaskan outback, reachable only by float plane and dog sled. But, alas, that’s not what Merriam-Webster says. Merriam-Webster defines “miscellanea” as “a collection of miscellaneous objects or writings.” And that’s exactly what we have here today.
