The Mailbag

Mrs. E.C. in Fairfax,Virginia,writes in:What do you like to do in your spare time?
Well,Mrs. E.C.,here are a few of my favorite things:
Taking long walks in the moonlight
Going to pet stores and looking at the frolicking puppies
Admiring a beautiful sunset
Meditating on ways to improve the human race,starting with moi
Sitting with my wife before a roaring fire in our home,even though we don't have a fireplace
Haggling over wax lips in a Turkish bazaar
Dressing up like Betty Hutton and laying in a bed of pine nuts
Looking for secret messages from Larry Fine in boxes of Chiclets
Speaking Urdu to a group of barnyard animals,while they nod appreciatively in acknowledgement
Getting wasted in Margaritaville
Trying on mock-turtlenecks while listening to Mannheim Steamroller
Bidding on E-Bay for Ernest Borgnine's back-hair
Declaring a state of war against Zainesville,Ohio
Taking my Chia pet for a walk
Looking for Capuchin monkeys in all the wrong places
Seeing how many times the word "eclectic" is used in any given issue of a jazz magazine (minimum so far-5!)
That's all the time we have for this Mailbag-see you next time!KP

"Dressing up like Betty Hutton and laying in a bed of pine nuts"

I believe it's "on" a bed of pine nuts.
