Great Grandfather (clock) Joshua Wilder

Been joyfully making my way in Austin. Keeping it weird, as the locals say. Mom and Poops spent some time recently in the company of Gadora’s ancestry. And Mom sent pics of the spectacled Joshua Wilder. Says she sees the resemblance…

And Mister Wilder’s coveted work:

As Gadora’s own ticker keeps on tickin’, I sing a few notes from the Steve Miller Band:

I want to fly like an eagle
To the sea
Fly like an eagle
Let my spirit carry me
I want to fly like an eagle
Till I’m free
Fly through the revolution

Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’
Into the future
