Who knew there were seasonal differences? Field Day for all of them!

Greg Brady


The "Summer of ME" MeTV is groovy. Greg and his mom both say so. That's good enough for us.

Then I Saw *This*

Let me see some stamps that are interesting, amusing, or pretty, I asked the nice postal clerk. Among the 3 (yawn) choices she gave me, was this monument to governmental bloat: Posters of the WPA.

Now, there is probably some historic significance to the program, yada yada, but nothing I'd call amusing or cute.

Then I saw THIS:


And, voila! The choice was made for me. Even the USPS is a fan of Field Day. This proves it. It has its own stamp.

Keep sending letters, groovy friends. They become increasingly valuable with each generation.

Science Lab (In a Box)

http://www.groovylabinabox.com/whats-in-the-box/

If we groovy people were still homeschooling our groovy children, we would totally look into these lab in a box surprises. Kids like to learn stuff. They like to see "What happens when I do this?" (Or, if you're Dee Dee, "What does this button do?")

Groovy idea whose time is now. Well played, Popular Mechanics!

Beer Good

Yes. Yes it is.

Peanut Butter

We groovy people have a new favorite peanut butter. It has exactly two ingredients: organic peanuts and sea salt. What's not to love? And the name brand? Field Day! (I know right? Groovy bonus! Don't you love it???)

Orion's Belt

Patterns. Patterns everywhere!

Bob Dylan, Redux

Apparently, the Nobel Committee thinks Bob Dylan is pretty groovy, as well.

Interesting choice, groovy friends.

Friends

Roll Tide, my friends.

Ooh La La!

We groovy people are told that the French make some pretty decent wine. This one is first on our list to try.

Prell

The smell
of Prell

takes us back to our groovy childhood.

Enduring Love

 We groovy people know that looks are fleeting, appearances can be deceiving, and feelings change. If you love someone because of how she looks, you won't love her for long.  We groovy people know that love is a decision that you make, every day, day after day.

We groovy people choose to love anyway.

G-rated

Vintage party supplies - what a groovy idea in a world that is starving for a G-rated party!

...and a G-rated everything else.

Not Just Any Coffee

There are some people who worship coffee. Any coffee:












But not groovy people. No. We groovy people are particularly fond of coffee from the Doka Estate of Costa Rica. You have never tasted good coffee until you have had this most groovy cup available anywhere. Trust me.

Churros

Churros - sugar, grease, deliciousness, sold by street vendors at all the happenin' places.

What's not to love?

Fresh Fruit

You know it's fresh because the banana is rather small. Dole and Chiquita bio-engineer bananas to be big and to withstand Panama Disease for export to US consumers (Franken-foods much?) but We Groovy People know that fresh is best. This is fruit grown locally, served locally, eaten fresh, the way God intended.

Waterfall

Gravity is a thing. The negative ion generation of the crashing water is just bonus.

Twilight Zone Marathon

We groovy people have made a valiant attempt to bring many groovy things to your attention in 2015. Our final entry, as we finish the year, is the Twilight Zone Marathon.

We groovy people watch it every year, yet never tire of it. Happy new year, groovy friends!

House Hunters International

This show is so predictable, we groovy people have come up with a Bingo card of the phrases we know we'll hear.

Still love the show.

Triplets

We groovy people can't tell them apart.

Winning

Winning is fun!

(BTW, Sue Ellen won't win the spelling bee with EYGPT)

New Words

We groovy people used to play Scrabble with small (yet equally groovy) people, where, at the end of the game, when all we had left were goofy tiles that spelled nothing at all, we would make up our own new words.

It was great fun, and a splendid creative exercise.

Reading "The Buckets" (I wonder if it's pronounced "bouquet?") in the comics this morning, we groovy people have to wonder if, some day, there will be a blog called We Coolio People, or We Rad People, or We Beast People, or We Jim Dandy People, or We All That And A Bag Of Chips People...

Discernment

There are some people with whom we groovy people want to hang out. And some we don't. It's ok. Clowns are creepy, too.

Kliban Cats

This is the grooviest of all Kliban cats.

JSU

Shout out to Friday Night Lights,
JSU edition.

Stay cocky!

Linda Clarke

How often do you say something off the cuff, and it makes the internet explode? Ooops, did she really *mean* single-handedly? Probably not, but it's a great ambition. We groovy people like those who dream big!

Morning Glory

We groovy people have heard this flower called "Kudzu Cousin," but if we get the right variety, they can be glorious.

Left Shark

Sometimes, you just gotta dance to your own music.

(Yes, we know this guy has appeared before, but he was not the topic, was he? Thank you.)

Big Shout Out

Big shout out to the new 6-A state champs - Spanish Fort High School #AHSAA

Woo!

Bob Dylan


Bob Dylan is a groovy guy. Even he admits it.

Labor of Love

Good way to see if your groovy marriage is for life: work on a project together.

(We groovy people are in it for the long haul.)

When In Rome...

When you live here, you have to choose a side. You have to. This isn't Switzerland. Choose wisely, and choose well.

Shout out to the Spanish Fort Toros! Woo!

Pride of Cincinnati

While we're on the subject of Peace (Here, here, and here) Pride of Cincinnati's "Summer of Love" WGI show is THE grooviest winterguard performance we groovy people have ever seen. Sorry, Onyx & Santa Clara. Pride wins, all the way.

Newspapers

There are still a few good newspapers out there.

The Anniston Star comes to mind.

The Wall Street Journal. 

We groovy people will let you know if we find any more worth mentioning.

Hooked On Onyx

This is Honey Onyx, a cool stone, as you can appreciate its beauty in natural light, or back light it on a bar top, for a very cool effect.



Groovy stone. Groovy name. Onyx. We like it.
