From the "things I don't miss about SC" file.

Easley's new library has a summer reading program with a pizza party afterwards.

Some parents, apparently of the religious nutball persuasion, object to one weekly session because it is advertised as such: “Get to know your inner cosmic being through astrology, palmistry, numberology [sic]. Partner up to practice palm-reading, or try your hand at tarot cards.” Obviously a bunch of superstitious nonsense, but as long as it's presented as such, it's completely harmless. But no, according to those parents, it was indoctrinating kids into the dreaded occult.

As a result, the library drops the reading program.

But still has the pizza party.

Friday Animal Blogging

My mom sent me some pictures of my cat, Fluffy, who still resides in South Carolina.

Rolling on the patio:

Under the shadow of the enemy:

Wants something:

Experiments with pot:
