Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Mindless Entertainment

Sometimes the Internet is more playground that information highway. When you just want to waste time, the Internet offers a plethora of pit-stops.

At the Cassette Generator, you can pretend you have a band and design what your cassette would look like. Here’s mine:

At the Jackson Pollack site, you can move your mouse around to create Pollackesque masterpieces. Every time you click the mouse, the color changes. Is this art, or what?

Singing Horses is wonderfully mindless. Once all four horses appear, click on each one to activate its, uh, singing voice. (Maybe you can come up with songs you'd like on your cassette?) Click again to make each horse stop singing.

Hi Becky, speaking of playground, I landed on your site through the NaBloPoMo randomizer. I love that cassette thing, I'm gonna have to try that out!
