speaking of surreal

Your last post ended up being very surreal.  I watched it in bed, half asleep and then I woke up thinking I had dreamed it...in fact couldn't remember where I had seen that performance or if I had made the whole thing up.

Speaking of sleep,  I don't know about you but the last few nights for me have not included much of it.  I've tried the combinations you listed below.  It would be helpful if I could take melatonin, but it has the reverse effect on me of what it is supposed to do.  I've also tried that Calms Forte, which also does the opposite of what it's supposed to do.  This is all very frustrating.  I should probably exercise more, but don't have nearly enough time for doing anything, let alone joining and actually physically getting myself to a gym, and then utilizing the facilities.  Which always brings me to the question of: when does anyone have time to do anything, especially the fun stuff like reading or watching tv?  This is one of the great mysteries of life, or at least my life.

And travel, oh, don't get me started.  I would love to travel more.  I would love to see England and all those places associated with it.  So, it was fun to see your replica of the bridge:

Speaking of surreal, you and J are very convincingly impersonating tourists on that structure.  How big is it really and does it fit in your back yard?  Is it really on water?  It's funny to see the statue of Liberty juxtaposed in the corner, kind of lending her air of authority as if to say, head on over across the pond to my place, land of the free, home of the brave.  Or maybe she's masquerading as the sun.  In all, surreality reigns supreme.

I'm sitting here in our back room, typing away and a thud just hit the window.  A minute or so later, I looked up and saw a little bird fly right into the same spot...what a couple of bird brains.  I put one of N's old toy stuffed owls on the bookshelf facing out.  I hope that does it...anyways,  I wanted to say thanks again for doing this project.  It's been a great creative outlet for me.  Just when I think I'm out of ideas, a new one pops into my head, much like those crazy birds against the window.  The good thing about these thuds means I just sent you another installment yesterday.  I hope it makes you laugh and I hope it makes it through the mail.  I dropped it off at different PO and the nice guy there assured me you should get it intact by Wednesday...so, look out for a little tangible thud without wings.  :)
