About the author

Having spent an adventurous life with business, traveling, research, and reading wide, Phil, the Philosopher Mouse of the Hedge, has returned to a sunny spot that is more than adequate for entertaining, and reflecting – and, as an added plus, only a short walk to the marina and sweeping sunsets.

Phil is known for astute observations, insightful analysis, and common sense comments of city, field, and that odd species: Β humans.

      Writers, like sharks, must keep moving to survive. Always looking for a good read – never know what you may find. (besides people who write about cars must be going somewhere, no wait, those who write about cars are heavy metal…no, wait, people that write about cars have class? Better stop before this goes flat….) Anyway, welcome to WordPress. Enjoy the ride – hope our paths cross again.

    Thanks so much for “liking ” my post. I really enjoy your writing and think you may be one of those lucky people that just have a wonderful way with words of the English language. I admire that and forever wish that I could somehow perhaps through osmosis be able to use language in this way.

      Thanks for the kind words. Anyone like yourself with experience in marketing and photography has a keen era / eye for language and communication. Just have fun blogging. One of the best pieces of advice I have seen about having a “good” blog is : “write, write, write”…(might want to add: read, read, read….and get out and do stuff, get out and do stuff, get out and do stuff.) Thanks for visiting!

        Agree whole heartedly! I *love* seeing other opinions delivered respectfully πŸ™‚ And yes, that whole Perry/Pelosi thing HAD to be a joke? I did love how he made fun of himself afterwards – but dang her response was still pretty classic. Politics is truly hysterical if you remove your own ego out of it. A true game of (frequent) fools.

          Her response was terrific. It’s always an interesting game to watch – such a casts of characters. No one could make this stuff up. Stay tuned for chuckles.
