Around 11:30 am Ethan and Sarah drove up in their borrowed black Audi.
I had just woken up at 10:45, one of those crazy nites, where I was awake until 2 am, having written two flash fictions - Black Friday and Therapy - and submitted them online.
When I couldn't fall asleep in my bed, I came downstairs, lay on the red couch and watched five hours of Charlie Rose, sleeping through much of it.
Of particular interest was the family of the late Michael Brown, the 18-yo teen from Ferguson, MO, and
the 60-yo Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan, who brought it back from bankrupty. Nissan is the largest selling car in China and also at 204.
Will the real Carlos Ghosn please......
Norman Lear was also on promoting his new book.
We were so glad to have Norman and Carlos back at this table.
Norman, who's 92, was born in 1922, is a month younger than my mom. He learned of the importance of obtaining the rights to the reruns.
Where did the day go?
We dined tonite on leftovers at Dan and Nicole's
When we got there, she was in the family room milking her new stuffed rhinoceros. Who's the milk for? I asked.
Thinking quickly she answered "Fookah."
Who's Fookah, I asked.
"My pretend friend."
From Internet. Nicole's cake looked just like this.
I cut four slices and placed them on the dining room table for dessert.
I ate two of them.
We were discussing the site Reddit, which shows trends. Everyone is discussing the new Star War movies coming out in a year.
Dan showed us previews on his teeny tiny smart phone. I'm not a die-hard fan.
Young man had sign saying, "free hugs", at a Portland Ferguson rally. This cop took him up on the offer. (i.imgur.com)
The new Mary Oliver book of poems is one of eight books I'm currently reading.
There are some beautiful lines in here.
From "Good Morning"
The multiplicity of forms! The hummingbird,
the fox, the raven, the sparrow hawk, the
otter, the dragonfly, the water lily! And
on and on. It must be a great disappointment
to God if we are not dazzled at least ten
times a day.
