Lynn shall be called Nana. That's what her kids call their gramma, Fran Sanders.
Visited Sarah at Brown U and we walked to a craft fair at Risde, Rhode Island School of Design. Bought this ceramic bowl and also one made of wood that disappeared a few years ago.
Quite a downpour we had earlier.
Aha, it's originally a tropical plant.
The earth cries for water
Do the heavens hear?
A thunderous crash that
makes the dogs in our
- Chico, ole Daisy, Chuckie and Wesley -
signals today's draught
My new lantana puffs herself up
the pink crepe myrtle smiles
when cars pass by
Terry's hubcaps beam
messages to Hubble
and the blue Buddha
blesses the world
with his "Do no harm."
Am watching Dateline upstairs now. Had to get on bike for eating watermelon and pretzels and p'nuts and the only station with reception was Channel 10.2.
The fiancee apparently killed her man with antifreeze.
C'est ca .... fini.... sweating copiously!!!
Can you read my true story here? Cancel My Health Insurance Jack!
It's 10:26 pm now.... I've still gotta lotta life in me.
Let's find out about it shall we?
Just told Mailman Joe about it.
A kid going into the middle school was outside playing. Barefoot. I told him I wanted to photgraf the trailer, which I did.
He told me he knew everything about it. Ring the bell of the people, he said. They just got home from traveling to Ark, Minnesota and Florida.
Where do they park it, I asked. He ran over to their driveway and pointed in the long drive. Basically, you're not allowed to keep em on the street or you get in trouble with the township.
About now his folks come out of their house. Nice people. I tell him, they came out bc they think I'm a child molester. Luckily they didn't hear me. We talked a while. His dad is a real sportsman, hunts deer, goes walking and bike riding.
The cute little 10-yo daughter comes out.
And there's the last of their three rescued cats under the SUV.
Meow! Meow! I love the smell of oil and burning rubber and a hot, but not too hot pavement beneath my long rescued body.tf
Dyou know what they were gonna do with me? Please! I don't wanna know.
Today is my writing group but I do not feel like going. Can you see me stamping my foot like a spoiled child?
I just wanna lay around, read, watch Netflix, and watch the silent leaves sway outside my window. Who knows? Maybe a hummingbird will fly by. The second one.
Dan told me to watch Stranger Things on Netflix. I did but after about 20 minutes it stopped!
It's made by the Duffer Brothers.
Called Dan earlier to get the name.
Yep, he said, and then Max's inimitable voice came on HI BUBBY, along with a million other kids. A birthday party.
Sent out postcards today including one each to Grace and Max.
Look, I have a picture for you. btw, I told Mailman Joe that I saw a baby green praying mantis in my garden today, ran in the house for my cam, and when I got back it was gone.
Pay attention to the real thing and stop needing to photograph it.
Scott's friend Paul B said he used to deliver BR's mail. BR is a Philadelphia kid.
I said something very clever on Grace's postcard - no one will understand it - she goes to Vaca Bible School - which I referenced here.
I have a very important Q I wanted to ask my readers. It's about an audio book I'm listening to in the kitchen.
Very well reviewed, you know the story, but not terribly good. What should Ruthie do? I wanna know the ending but bc it's a crime fiction the reviews may not tell you.
Yes, I have decided. Remove it and put on your remaining book.
I am so hot and mungy now I have no feelings whatsoever.
GOODBYE BOODBYE GOODBYE
Hillary, Bill, Chelsea
How'd you like our town?
So many new names to get
used to: Tim Kaine, his
brown-haired wife Ann,
Chelsea, her husband
Marc and their two young uns
Charlotte and fat-
Put me to work. I'll
walk the neighborhoods
talk on the phone as I
did eight years agon
for Barack, whose name
we could barely pronounce
I remember seeing lunch pails
yes I do from construction
workers with his banner
Where can I get me a
Hillary shirt? A harbinger
of the day in November
when the headlines proclaim
First woman president elected
BY A LANDSLIDE.

The singer is Katy Perry. You'll know the rest of the gang.
Charlotte and Aidan. Aidan is five and a half weeks old.
Must click here. How we wish we could understand a smidgen of theoretical physics.
And don't forget the GREAT Richard Feynman.
Hillary is wearing white, says FB friend, Nicole B, b/c that's the color worn by Sufragettes.
Eric Holder, former atty general under Obama, was on the Charlie Rose Show.
The NPR commentators thought Hillary gave a less-than-adequate speech. They use terms like 'she checked off all the boxes' but she doesn't have the language of an Obama or a Bill Clinton.
I was paying attention to her message and not her linguistics.
Now what'll I do?
This book was due today but Amber let me check it out again and told me to hurry and finish it.
Bought this book for Sarah who will get it before she leaves for Rio on mom's 94th b'day.
Oh! Dan called and said I might like "Stranger Things" on Netflix.
Anyone heard of it?
