If you scroll down to the next message, you will see that I was in the process of re-purposing this URL. As a result, a few people appear to have wandered onto the premises recently and bookmarked thr site or arranged to follow it in some other fashion, which I appreciate.
But I am nothing if not mercurial in my whims. Upon further review, Been There, Done That is going to stay static, maybe forever, maybe for just a while. We shall see.
Meanwhile, my replacement blog for the dearly departed I Have Heard the Mermaids Singing will take place at another relaunched URL and be called Reading Between the Lines. if your intent was to keep track of me, even if only to report suspicious activity on my part to the proper authorities, please use that URL.
What better way to relaunch than with Buddy, who has been the star of my web presence for going on five years now?
Okay, he’s shown at a fancy pool at my daughter’s house, not the ol’ swimming hole, so sue me. The ol’ swimming hole was just which was a wide spot in the creek than down behind my cousin’s place that damned up to make it deep enough to swim, if you must know; those were the days when kids made their own fun and weren’t driven hither and you constantly by their parents to participate in all sorts of organized activities.
Anyway, my son and his family were back in civilization from Idaho last week and yesterday we gather round the pool and Buddy got his chance to inspect the Idaho grandkids…
…and then to loll about poolside with cousin Harley, my daughter’s pooch (sorry, the lighting and color are not so good on this one, but I have me a cheep old phone)…
This blog is a successor to my long-time I Have Heard the Mermaids Singing blog. If our paths have crossed before, you likely know all about that; if this is our first time, you really don’t have to care. Yesterday’s gone and all that. This is also a companion blog to my longer-time, never gonna stop blog, Jack Curtin’s Liquid Diet; that one you might want to check out because there will be some inter-connection between the two.
This will be a very personal adventure, commentary on anything and everything, political rants to comic book musings, serious discussions to crazed ramblings. Quite honestly, it’s more for me than for you because I need to say what I need to say more than you need to read it. Most of the time, at least.
Finally, this URL was once host to a cartoon series called Outside Looking In and you will see some of those on this page and in the archives as we get started here. This too shall pass is we move forward.
NOTE: For the first month or two at least, this message with “stick” at the top of the page so if you’re here for a second visit, be sure to scroll down ans see if there’s anything new happening. Thanks.
