A purple infusion.

Nice try but you can’t fool me.

Those are mutant eggplants.

traditionalguy said...

Rejoice in your first fruits. The Purple days are here again, but now they are days of wholeness and joy without overbearing trees.

William said...

Why red, yellow, purple peppers so much more expensive than green peppers. Are they harder to grow or occur more rarely at harvest? A pepper should be valued on the contents of its nutrients and not the color of its skin.

William, Bissage, very funny both of you.

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple eater to me

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple pepper eater
(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple pepper eater)
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple pepper eater
Sure looks strange to me (One eye?)

I said Mr. Purple Pepper Eater, what's your line
He said it's eatin' purple peppers and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple pepper eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple pepper eater
(We wear short shorts)
Flyin' purple pepper eater
Sure looks strange to me

And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
He started to rock, really rockin' around
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
Sing a boop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple pepper eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple pepper eater
I like short shorts
Flyin' little pepper eater
Sure looks strange to me (Purple Peppers?)

And then he went on his way, and then what do ya know
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em dead
Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in his head

Tales of Brave Meade

Not so tiny purple peppers run lauging through your fingers,

And you want to take her with you to the hard land of the Wisconsin winter.

Her name is Althouse and she rides a silver shell,

And you know you cannot leave her for you touched the distant sands

With tales of brave Meade, how his naked ears were tortured

By the sirens sweetly singing.

Meade said...


And here I thought the leaden winter might bring me down forever.

Boy was I ever wrong!

After all, I rode up on my mountain bike to the purplelusciousness of Madison.

Meade will find very important off season landscaping work to do in Cincinnati during the winter months. Meade, have you ever lived through a northern winter? I have. I very much enjoy living in a subtropical climate now.

a purple effusion

JAL said...

Wow. Meade.

Did you really ride to Madison?

Chip? An animated map perhaps?

Meade said...

"Did you really ride to Madison? "

Well, sure. In my poetic licensed song-parodying mind I did.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

Pick a peck of purple peppers. Say it really fast several times. :-)

Paleo Pat said...


I got EDH's lines, I started read, I didn't notice the title... and right away, the song's tune to my head.

....and I'm 37. O_o

I LOVE this post! Do you see how Ann used her art, photography, to bring out the artist in the rest of us?

We got some singers in the house, and several comedians, some fiction writers a few set people and some fans. What more can we ask for?

Penny said...

Now, that being said. I am trying to learn how to paint, and this photograph is calling out to me. I hope you don't mind, Ann.

I was told that the first rule of painting is to paint what you REALLY see, and not what you THINK you see. I thought I was seeing purple peppers at first, but on further observation, I see so much more.

Purple? Well sure, if you ignore the lavender blues and the midnight blues, or the magentas and the oranges. And don't forget the grays and blacks, or the sage greens. And that man in the moon!

Sure the shapes seem simple, which is exactly why I want to paint this picture! lol I can't draw worth shit. But just like, Meade. I got me one FINE imagination.
