"Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset." Saint Francis De Sales

Calvin & Hobbes and NCIS

My Slow Takes

1. Some Mondays arrive too quickly.

2. The Irish Lads are now at 4-0 as they head to South Carolina to face the Clemson Tigers. 

3. On September 30, 1889, the territory of Wyoming, granted women the right to vote. 

4. The simple wisdom of Calvin.

5. One of my favorite programs, NCIS,  has started a new season. The first two episodes were great. They showed some interesting new twists that are developing with some of the characters.

6. Happy “Link-toberfest.” 

My first blog for Jennifer’s Seven Quick Takes was on June 10, 2011. I wasn’t sure about writing seven things every week, so I created a variation, “My Slow Takes.” I am still a contributor and enjoy reading all the different blogs. 

7. Reba McEntire and Vince Gill, “The Heart Won’t Lie.” This is a great duet.

Go over to "This Ain't the Lyceum,” where Kelly is hosting more takes.


  1. Thanks for being faithful with the link ups Paul!
    Love #5. I thought I'd read all the Calvin and Hobbes created, and I don't remember that one.

  2. You make the link ups fun and provide access to blogs that we wouldn't normally read.
    Attempting to remember all the Calvin & Hobbes creations would be a daunting task.
