Mom's doing well
Hmmm, wonder what I could eat to make it go up?
Popcorn? Takes too long. I'll make the usual Trail Mix. Scuse me a sec.
Made a phone call while gone. "Stella" who lives at Ann's Choice but is now at Abington hospital has terrible physical problems and told Dr Gill she had all her organs removed.
Another day she told the doctor she was dead.
A little bit of Risperdal will do ya!
"Peter's" hands were shaking. Am using a pseudonym since he told me they shook from taking meds.
Oh, psychiatric meds, I said. And told him I used to have bipolar disorder.
He has schizoaffective d/o. He lives in Moreland Towers. He knows Allan and Winnie both. His GF died a couple of months ago. She was 20 yrs older than he was.
I said It doesn't matter as long as you love each other.
After all, my BF is 13 yrs younger than me.
He works at a bowling alley.
Good for you! I said.
Then I did something impulsive. New Directions has just gotten a couple of huge donations. So I reached into my red wallet - Gee, I wish I had a twenty, I said - and gave him two fives.
It really embarrassed him. Made me feel silly for giving it to him. Social Security Disability Income is barely enough to live on.
Her fall resulted in no broken bones, just contusions and abrasions. I'm not gonna bother looking em up as I'll never remember em.
Ellen and I ordered takeout from Fresh Ginger in the Justa Farm Shopping Center. We drove in and while Ellen was inside picking up our order I took this photo
Was just at the library and told Linda that on the PBS Evening News, Jeffery Brown asked two authors at the famous Politics and Prose Book Store to recommend their three best books of the year.
Read about em here.
Like me, Linda reads and listens to several books at once.
Ah, Booklovers! Ah, Bartleby. Ah, Humanity.
My current books are
Stegner's descriptions of characters, their little movements, how they look when they think or are staring in space are matchless.
We're reading these short stories for our book club.
AMY, surely you've got a book group at your Ashland OR Library?
What are they reading? See you for my 70th BD party.
Lastly, I'm reading The Green Ripper. The late John D MacDonald always has a color in his title.
Which book should I start reading now?
Roll of the dice.......
