Runaway Climate Control Technologist On The LOOSE

Dear Kay,
Quick reminder: Knitting at the Nashville Downtown Public Library on tomorrow–Monday, Feb. 12, noon to 2 pm. Directions here. Come one, come all–it’s going to be a superfabby gathering this month!
Tomorrow is Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. Have I mentioned the crush I have always had on Abraham Lincoln? Can you IMAGINE having a president like that in this day and age?
As for the photo above, whaddya make of “Quarantined (Not Released)”? What’s in there? If it’s not released, what’s it doing driving down Granny White Pike?
Love,
Ann

  1. What in the world related to climate control would need to be quarantined? Maybe it’s one of those butterflies which causes a hurricane in North America by flapping its wings in China. ;)

  2. I know it’s not relevant to this particular post of yours, but I wanted to tell you that I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Perfect Sweater. I made a few changes (because I’m a knitter, and isn’t that what knitters do?), including the addition of a big “L” to accent my little chest…. Anyway, I wear the sweater about three days a week, and it would be every day, except I think my dh might notice that…..

  3. To all three, I can only say, I can only imagine.

  4. time for an abe lincoln knit design methinks.

  5. Galley proofs?

  6. It’s a newly captured, rabid air-compressor. It had escaped its confines and been roaming wild down Granny White Pike, a danger to itself and others. (Well, would a sane and healthy air-compressor be out this time of year?)

  7. Maybe it’s a feral air conditioning system. It’s energy consumption and emission of green house gases were bad enough when it was fully domesticated, but now that it was running around in the wild…

  8. Hells bells! It’s photographic proof of the cause of global warming! The climate control technologists have been quarantined (and not released). I suspected as much.

  9. I am not all that familiar with the inner workings of Nashville, but maybe Granny White Pike IS quarantine…

  10. Abe Lincoln? And, I must say that I am completely and utterly jealous that I can’t come to Nashville. *pout*

  11. Even the Canadians liked him back in the day.

  12. Well did any of you notice this truck drove all the way from Atlanta to Nashville. hmmm…who or what are they dumping in Nashville….

  13. Legionnaires’ disease:
    ” Legionellosis infection occurs after persons have breathed mists that come from a water source contaminated with Legionella. Potential sources of such contaminated water include cooling towers used in industrial cooling water systems as well as in large central air conditioning systems…”
