It is in the 60’s today and last night was downright chilly; Der Bingle got a firepit fire going and by eight o’clock, we were huddled around it. We decided to let it die out because we didn’t want to go get sweaters in order to enjoy seeing flames in the dark at nine. The […]

Throat accident

Okay, they need to put one more warning on prescription bottles, along with the dizziness and the driving and heavy machinery and grapefruit and so forth; they need a big sticker that says, “Don’t take this unless you have something to drink in each reach.” I tossed a blood pressure pill on my tongue, thinking […]

Little cow

August 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

These have been difficult days; in fact, this has been a difficult decade. In these ten years, hard-to-bear things have happened. I was sitting here, half-reclining, eyes closed, when something bonked into my face and bounced onto my chest. Der Bingle had tossed  this little cow at me as he was on his way out […]

Nice little comfy sleep

August 23rd, 2009 · No Comments
