Quandary Resolution 2448
mixen, made in the shade, concrete, halcyon
I admire your optimism Jeannie, but I fear it would be premature to declare that our halcyon days have arrived, that we've got it made in the shade so to speak, when all available indications--spanning dreams, metaphysical intuitions, and concrete sensory observations (a certain feculent miasma comes to mind)--point to the conclusion that our acre of paradise was in fact a mixen before we took residence here, and that despite our investments in new construction, it has not lost the most salient of its former qualities.
