    I could barely get Hubby to rub my ankle. I guess a tushy is a different story.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    Have you been peering in my windows? Yes, the cats on me, tv on, Kindle next to me, cell phone next to me, netbook next to me, propped up by pillows and blankets and surrounded by snoring dogs.

    That's a picture! I sleep really well sitting up, but I'm weird. Blood flow to the tushy is important, though. Don't neglect that. Nobody wants to end up with nerve damage to the tushy.

    Surrounded by snoring dogs.

    As they slumber in stillness.

    Their warmth blankets and shields me
    from the frosty world outside.

    surrounded by snoring dogs

    Nothing still about these beasts. These dogs like to chase bunnies, yip, thump their tails, and pass gas all while sleeping.

    Not to be overtly gushy, but this is very...what's the word? You just cranked that out, bro! and it's got this very comfortable, warm rhythm. I'm going to get a cup of hot chocolate, look at the freshly fallen snow (yes, it's true) and read this again. Then I'll follow up with a nice short story.

    Twiching farting canines
    cause me sleepless nights

    their malodorous emissions
    fill others full of fright

    whatever's in their diet
    results in sulf'rous fume

    perhaps the time is nigh
    to find another room

    The fat cat on the mat
    may seem to dream
    of nice mice that suffice
    for him, or cream;
    but he free, maybe,
    walks in thought
    unbowed, proud, where loud
    roared and fought
    his kin, lean and slim,
    or deep in den
    in the East feasted on beasts
    and tender men.
    The giant lion with iron
    claw in paw,
    and huge ruthless tooth
    in gory jaw;
    the pard dark-starred,
    fleet upon feet,
    that oft soft from aloft
    leaps upon his meat
    where woods loom in gloom --
    far now they be,
    fierce and free,
    and tamed is he;
    but fat cat on the mat
    kept as a pet
    he does not forget.
    On pitching to Stan Musial:
    "Once he timed your fastball, your infielders were in jeopardy."

    Man! I went and got my hot chocolate and everything, Man! Oh well. I'll get a Coke. Screw it.

    Snow falls from the Big Sky too. I pray no more comes soon. I am recovering from the worse back ache ever and I do not want to shovel the walk. I do not recall my town getting a blanket of snow before Halloween before, but here it is. Even my poplar trees have given up and are dropping their leaves. Before long the deer will be sleeping under the trampoline and munching on our poor yield of apples.

    I checked in last week when I heard about Bear but other than that it's been a few weeks, and holy smokes I have a lot to get caught up on.

    I just read the first entry in my journal following the loss of Sylvie. I have been afraid to relive the emotions and experience. I'm glad I kept such a journal. You don't think you will forget anything about such an experience but some things do fade. In the journal I likened her little fingers to bony birdie feet.

    We spent yesterday in Berkeley and today in San Francisco. I am now convinced that a state or local law prevents the sale of hair dye to women over 40.

    We also went to the remains of the Sutro baths, drove thru Golden Gate park, and ate at Perry's on Union St. When my family came to SF in '66, I had read a Bobbsey Twins book where they went to the Japanese Tea Garden in Golden Gate Park, and of course I wanted to go. My parents, not being tea people (I'm not either) nixed that. I'm now 0 for 2. It's not so important 45 years later,
