Mips: frivolous notes of the Skyylark


Where's Ned?

Blog regular and family member 'Ned' placed 9th in the "Hopes and Dreams 5k" in Memphis, Tennessee! He's shown here rockin' a red bandanna. We're so proud of our Neo-luddite!

Ned: If you are displeased with my posting your photo, feel free to post incriminating photos of me on your site:b

    Ninth!? Well done, Mr. Beatty. I would like to note, though, that in this photo you are one or two strides behind what appears to be a child.

    My, Missy, you have cute relatives! Must be in the genes.

    Ned, your stride looks strong and comfortable, and you look like you are having a blast. And the red bandana adds a bit of unique flair. As for that child, he is an Irish leprechaun, just running for the pot of gold. Cheers.

    Hmm. Nope, that's not me. I'm not sure who that guy is.

    As you can see from the likeness on my site, I am never without my black cape and eye-mask. While I like the red headband for other people, alas, it's not for me.

    As for that child in the photo: I'm not a running expert, but it looks like he started way too fast in that race. I mean, that stride is much too long. He's landing on his heel, after all.

    No, if I were a betting man, my money would be on that fellow with the red head band, whoever he is.

    Your five questions:

    1. What other city (outside of Minnesota, please) would you like to live in for at least six months?

    2. What's your favorite type of shoe?

    3. When did you last draw with crayons?

    4. If you could inhabit a cartoon world (with the option to return at any poitn), which cartoon world would it be?

    5. If you won a contest that gave you the right to remove one television personality from the air, who would you select?
