October 31st, 2008 · No Comments

Okay, here I am on a county road in the country part of the county with no other cars on the road when I realize that the white car parked in the church parking lot was a police car and that it is flashing its lights behind me now. Yes, I was speeding. And the […]

Okay, Quentin, I had AJ (otherwise known as your mom) take some pictures of me and our old stomping grounds . . . just so you wouldn’t forget me. (I’m good, aren’t I? AJ taught me.) Here I am at the corral. The sky in front of the house. More grounds de la fair. At […]

dreams

October 30th, 2008 · No Comments

Summer dreamed I was a giant spider spinning an orange goo web and killing “higher up” people; I didn’t kill her because she was my alibi, but she said she was getting nervous when she woke up. Alison dreamed I bought giant bananas at the grocery. I don’t remember dreaming – I guess I had […]

voicemail

October 29th, 2008 · No Comments

“I’m all right, but call me when you get a chance.” Mother, on the phone while I showered. It could have been anything from the cat being run over to a meteorite landing in the yard. It was: Her cousin who is one year younger died this morning. She had severe stomach pains, was operated […]

Frost on the windshield

October 28th, 2008 · 1 Comment

So it is here – frost, the kind you have to scape off your windshield if you have not garaged it. Summer and I discovered it this morning and while I got the defroster going, she ran for a scraper. She couldn’t find one, so she improvised. Soon we were looking at each other through […]

Cruet

October 27th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I have a friend who is 91 (and a half). Yesterday her daughter gave me this from her home which is being sold. A beautiful cruet . . . and still beautiful, still the same. But time passes for the hands that hold it – cruel, it almost seems.

Ruins? 68?

October 27th, 2008 · No Comments

I remember watching the made-for-tv movie, Love Among the Ruins with Katherine Hepburn and Laurence Olivier. I really liked that movie; I think I even quoted lines from it. But now I can’t remember what it was I quoted so I started to research on Google. I haven’t found much yet but I did learn […]

Hotti

October 27th, 2008 · No Comments

The last chili someone – who shall remain nameless – made was extremely good. This batch has my lips and mouth burning 10 minutes after I ate it . . . and my spoon is greasy. I will know when someone reads this because I will get the cold shoulder and chilly reception. Right now […]
