Formerly known as Olio-’n’-Pastiche: As defined by my threadbare, dog-eared, Elmer’s-Glued-’n’-duct-taped-together vintage Random (Bunk) House Dictionary, olio is a dish of many ingredients, a medley or potpourri, as of musical or literary selections; miscellany. And pastiche is a literary, musical, or artistic piece consisting wholly or chiefly of motifs or techniques borrowed from one or more sources. In a word, we’re talking—loosely—hodgepodge. Or slumgullion—or, in old-time cowpuncher lingo, sonofabitch stew (okay, two words), which means everything tossed into the pot but the horns, the hair, and the holler. Yup, you got it: anything goes, in this web—photographs, notebook scratchings, news flashes, clippings-’n’-cloppings, refrigerator magnet snapshots, poem drafts, snippets of wisdom, rants & raves, musings, music, song lyrics, flotsom-’n’-jetsom-’n’-fodder-for-thought.

Thanks for tuning in and be sure to visit our Mercantile.
