Marx Soldier Show and the Edinboro Arts Festival

I'm almost done with the Ginsburg chapter of my next book - which is good, since the entire manuscript is due at the publishers on July 1st. I didn't ever think I would so sick of the Beats, but geez, if you want to destroy your passion about something, write a book or two about it.

When I mosey down for my bi-weekly trip to the angry loners at the Franklin Post Office today, I'm going to buy a whole bunch of these pretty Katherine Anne Porter stamps, released on Monday.

More importantly, The Northwestern Pennsylvania Toy Soldier Show and Sale is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Rocky Grove fire hall (28 Shuffstall Street, Franklin,PA) - expect lots of Marx figures. Contact Randy Sabousky: 814-354-6053.

The Oil Region Astronomical Observatory . The Education Presentation is on "Gas Giants - Jupiter & Saturn" The Observatory is located in the Lockwood area of Venango County's Two Mile Run Park. Get directions on their website.

Mark Twain surfed.
You heard right, Huck: America's greatest writer took a wooden surfboard and paddled out to wait, as he had seen naked locals do, "for a particularly prodigious billow to come along," upon which billow he prodigiously wiped out.
