One of these years I'm going to wrap my trees in aluminum foil and charge for people looking for "foilage."

Speaking of spelling, I'm afraid there're only 2 p's in Culpeper, not 3.

(My family's from there, back to one-stoplight main-street days long ago. Felt compelled to uphold its dignity.)

In general, of course, you're an excellent speller, besides being a freakish master at making terribly weirdly funny stuff of what at first glance doesn't even appear to be a cartoon.

Mark, curses! foliaged again!

Paul, dang, you're right, and thanks. I think I used to know that. But I'm from Maryland and, though I've lived in VA for years, much of it is still terra nonspella.

I like the word "gamboge". But, what does it even mean??

This makes me think it would be a good idea for you to do an occasional post called, "Richard Answers Your Stupid *ss Questions."
