Keeping Close

  1. There are time you feel you're part of the scenery, all the greenery, is comin' down, boy…

    The Boy took the long way home yesterday. I think he went to see his GF, because he came back with a bunch of produce (her parents have a pretty good garden this year).

    Up way too early, thanks to Mason being up way too early and ready to play. The Boy is watching him from the futon (with his eyes closed, and snoring a little). Coffee is gurgling, so I'll be awake soon.

  2. And then your wife seems to think you're part of the furniture, oh it's peculiar, she used to be so nice...

    Great tune, love that band.

    Good day to everyone.

  3. Hi everybody. We had a great drive from Las Vegas to Mammoth Lakes, CA. We went through Death Valley which was amazing and weird and starkly gorgeous. It was 115 out so we only took a few short walks to viewpoints but we've already decided we have to go back in March or April some time.

    We also stopped at the Manzanar National Historic Site which had a great museum. Hard to place to visit but it's a terrific reminder of how a country that touts its beliefs in freedom and justice can so easily convince itself to deny those rights to a group of people based on nothing but prejudice.

  4. Can't wait to see the pics, Andi!

    In my neck of the concrete jungle, the blessed coolth has bestowed happiness upon me and the residents of my building. A/C is still not fully functional, as there is a part that needs replacement and it's been ordered. But, with 65F this a.m. and a lovely low humidity and low 80s high expected, I'm okay with that.

    I have been binge watching Orange Is the New Black, a Netflix original show. Definitely awesome.

    Tomorrow is med lab day (ick) and car inspection. What fun...

  5. Hi, all. The high today is supposed to be 70. I am in heaven!

    Andi, sounds wonderful. The decision allowing the internment is in my list of worst decisions ever. (I used to have a top 5 but with the Roberts court I have had to expand it.) I was particularly bummed to see that William O. Douglas joined in it. Lost a lot of respect for him that day.

  6. I've driven through Death Valley twice, once with a sick friend in the backseat, and for me, that was quite enough. We didn't stop at Manzanar; I don't do well emotionally with things like that so I usually don't do them.

    (I used to have a top 5 but with the Roberts court I have had to expand it.)

    I know, right? GOOD GOD Y'ALL. Still, having a front row seat for an empire-crumbling is not the sort of thing that comes around too often, so we should, like Mrs. Lincoln, at least try to enjoy the show.

    Maria, I've heard only good things about Orange, but now that you've rec'd it I'll actually give it a looksee. :)
