First footing – a little late

January 8, 2019
Just a few lines.  I'm handicapped.  I can't write in both places (very well) and I can't just copy from one place to the other.  So it's like I'm missing a leg or a half the keys on my keyboard or something.  I love this place and I love the other place and I love…

    I follow Howard Dean on twitter.  He is the medical doctor who was governor of Vermont in the early 2000s and who ran for president in 2004.  He is the man  who famously lost the Iowa caucus and made a hysterical speech acknowledging the loss.  The video clips that were universally shown destroye...

  • Two ways of looking at it
    January 1, 2019
    Dreams (inspired very loosely by The Christmas Carol)   Christmas past.   Midnight Mass Church crowded with people home for the holidays. Squashed against a woman in a fur coat who smelled like onions. Traditional carols stretching across the length of the church, from balcony to altar....

    (photo from Minnesota State Fair several years ago)   Just a test.  My entries don't seem to be showing up on the front page. Thought I'd try one more time.   Later - Just a thought - maybe our OWN entries don't show up on the front page.  Do you see your own entries there? …

  • Now
    July 7, 2018
        Today is July 7, 2018.  Saturday.  Later afternoon. On the deck, warm/cool/slight breeze. A few minutes before the gnats come.   I see: sunlight on the stout textured trunk of the younger walnut breeze bringing all sorts of leaves to life my prized begonia in perfect red/pink b...

  • A friend…
    June 18, 2018
    Odd odd question.  What qualities are important in a close friend?  It so depends.  There are a lot of ways of being and of having friends.   I come across old friends, close friends here.  I think of the time that's gone and won't come back.  I think of who matters and who doesn't.  I…

  • The baas at Catons
    June 13, 2018
    My first memory might be the baas at Catons.  Catons was the farm my parents lived on the first five years of their marriage.  I was oldest, born a little after a year into their marriage.  The baas were the sheep that were on the other side of the fence from our houseyard.  I assume…

  • The lost grandson
    June 6, 2018
    I just had my best trash phone call ever.  I have to share it with somebody and you're the lucky person.   Phone rang about 9:20 on Wednesday morning.  Since I gave Tammy Baldwin ten bucks the day before I felt pretty certain I could say no to political solicitations so I didn't even look&he...

  • A real entry, except it’s accidental
    May 17, 2018
    Hi there. This is an attempt at a real entry.  The kind sane people write when they want to talk about their lives.  I did not intend to write it right now but I hit the wrong icon and instead of the front page I got the write an entry window.  So I am writing…
