If it’s Friday it must mean leftovers . . .

The Brooklyn Citizen, New York, September 24, 1899

“as if reality had become naked and nothing remained except the silent
spinning of atoms and molecules
it was a flapping of wings over blue and white waves, a sparkle of
sun on the rocks” ~ Octavio Paz, from “Kostas Papaioannou”

Friday afternoon, sunny and hot, 87 degrees.

Not the best day. It’s stuffy in the house, and we still have no AC.

Corey has gone to a health fair offering free dental, vision, and medical care. His tooth problem has gotten really bad, and it needs to be pulled. He got up before 5 a.m. to be there at 6 for the tickets, only to be told that today’s slots were all filled. He was told to come back at 2 to get a slot for tomorrow when there will be more providers. It’s an hour each way. He said that there were tons of people there.

Tell again there’s nothing wrong with healthcare in this country . . .

Bailey and Tillie got in another fight as soon as Corey left the house . . .

There will be no funeral or service for Dallas, and the lawyer has advised us not to get involved in the whole situation involving his ashes because we had offered to take care of them. This whole situation really, really sucks . . .

Not much of a collection for today, but a good segment from Colbert. Just not into it, plus computer woes continue . . .


Needs no explanation:

Too true, that . . .

How is it that this kid has a better plan at her age than I’ve ever had at any age?

At last, scientific proof of the concept that has plagued me forever; the peer reviewer’s comments are pure gold:

My kind of grandma . . .

For those who didn’t watch the entire second night of the Democratic debates, here’s a good snapshot:

  1. Sounds like there has been alot of chaos in your life. Sorry to hear about your neighbor. And death definitely brings out the worst in people. We just had a death in our family. People are strange. Do what you need to take care of yourself.

    1. I keep losing my reply to your comment, so if three of them show up, don’t be surprised.

      I’m sorry to hear about your loss as well. My stress level with the death and the animal issues is through the roof. Death definitely brings out the strange in people, and obviously, I don’t know what happened with his kids, but I assume that it was something major. He could be ornery and difficult, but he could also be kind and generous. It’s a shame that the people who have known him for decades won’t have some kind of gathering to attend. Take care.
