Partly Cloudy Patriot

PartlycloudypatriotExcellent stuff: Sarah Vowell’s Partly Cloudy Patriot. I listened to it for a while yesterday as an audiobook, while I was working on the new painting. Insightful, biting and amusing shorts on anything from family life to U.S. presidency and Vietnam. Sarah reads the audiobook herself and hwe nasal voice might not be to everyone’s liking, but then there’s always the printed version…

I am so glad it rained all day. A rainy Sunday frees anyone from having to go out and do something nice. Instead, one can simply stay in and do something just as nice.

Painting a little, preparing this post, and listening to Sarah reading her book certainly made for a good Sunday for me. I think I will buy this book as a present; all I need is figure out for whom it’ll be. The Giraffe painting is finished; photo coming soon.
