My silly life

I'm not sure anyone's life is truly silly, but sometimes I come here to write about something profound and all too often - I got nothing. Which is probably just as well; my version of profound could be more wool-gathering, navel gazing on the price of avocados ... and I don't even eat the darn…

In with new, out with something else
