questions for the ages…

so, yesterday hubbkf and i spent much time out of doors performing various yardly duties…in my ever-hopeful spirit of eternal springtime, was planting and transplanting the poor flowers and plants that will eventually succumb to my neglect come august…

as always when i’m working out in the yard, my thoughts drift to nature, the natural world and all that…

later in the day, i accompanied hubbkf to his teevee station to hang out while he worked a bit on the pledge drive…they’ve been able to upgrade not only their studios, but all their equipment as well and i must say, it is mighty impressive…media technology still stumps me to this day, which is weird since i was in the biz for quite a while…their are some things however, that my pea-brain is never going to get…

once we left the station, we decided to make a walmart run…my mind really wanders when we travel and the entire day just gave me way too many things to think about…so, i asked hubbkf if he ever thought of ‘the big stuff’ kind of questions…you know, how did we get here…what’s it all about…

i can usually muddle my way through those ones…but what i really don’t get is:  how did the universe get here?  and what exactly IS the universe?

if somebody could help me out with that, i would really appreciate it…
