Re: Zuihitsu

Cold night, bright moon - driveway crisscrossed by tree shadows. Dry powdery snow crunches under my feet. The dog trots off towards the woods where he likes to tend to business, and, unfortunately, begin his unauthorized treks over the wall. I switch on the flashlight to keep him in sight. Suddenly ...

Re: perpetual jam!!!!!!!!!

When I was a kid, "Maverick" was the highlight of our Sunday nights - it was the only night the whole family would set up trays and eat supper gathered around the tv. I also liked "Rawhide" and, much later, "Branded" & "The Guns of Will Sonnet". For reading, I was more into juvenile sci-fi. I never ...

Re: Zuihitsu

5:56 am - Standing at the foot of the bed and barking out the window, dog pulls me out of the half-sleep I've been drifting in. Outside, a rumbling and flashing yellow light tell me Dave has returned to finish the job he started yesterday. But he seems to finish a lot sooner than I would have expect...

Re: Zuihitsu

7:52 am - You'd never know that I shoveled 6" of snow off the front steps last night just before bed. It all grew back overnight. Dave came sometime during the wee hours - I didn't wake up when he did, nor, apparently, did the dog. Or else I slept through his barking, too. The dog's, not Dave's. Dav...

Re: Brain Storm

Holy crap, Doreen, I'm so sorry to hear that! I've always admired your devotion to physical activity & fitness, you're the last person I'd've expected to experience a cardiac episode. (Don't you just love the euphemisms?) My brother-in-law had a massive coronary a year (or was it two?) ago - and has...
