I must admit I’ve been a little smug about how I’ve managed to keep my apartment ant-free since I moved in.
That’s over now.
War is upon me, but I’ve trained for this.
Springfield Cashew Chicken, Fried Rice, Bok Choi
Enjoying another amazing food share from my friend
Will Leathem. The man can cook it up!
One of the things I like about where I live now is that there are packs of children. One big pack possibly, or perhaps interweaving smaller factions. I’m not sure. I’m not doing an anthropological survey and analysis.
I haven’t …

I just had a wonderful phone conversation with a friend from back in my New Jersey youth. Someone I haven’t seen since I was about 14-15 years old. It was the easiest thing in the world. Friends online now friends again in the direct sense. Reach out.
For folks who live where fireworks are illegal, it might be hard to convey the absolute insanity that went down in my neighborhood last night. (If, after hearing me describe it, you feel it was worse in your neighborhood, congrats.)…

I got a wonderful last-minute invite to come and share some of
Will Leathem‘s and Leslie Everingham-Jones‘s Paella.
They may be sorry they had me over as there wasn’t much food left by the time I got through eating. Left with cookies and homemade apple pie under my arm.
I have such generous friends.
Buzzard for company on my morning walk.
Is this roadkill connoisseur following me?

I said, “Are you ok?”
He said, “Yeah.”
After a while, two young …

5k walk in. Grey sky and humid, rain on it’s way.
I think the days of heat have arrived. There will be a few more cool nights maybe, but it’s time to shift over to warm brain.
Get back in here and serve your purpose human.
I can never escape the feeling that he’s always watching.
Sing to me.

It was a really good dream, and …

Costco!! Milk and Chicken Pot Pies!
Will Leathem. Guaranteed good conversation when Will is there. I learn a lot from him. I had lasagna in hopes of fueling my workout later on.
At the library tonight it was a nice mix of young and old and most importantly, warmth. Able to forget how cold it is for a couple of hours.
5K. I gotta say I was enjoying these walks a lot more when I didn’t think the weather was trying to purge me with cryo.
Mongo Santamaria – Live at Jazz Alley kept my ear holes warm at least.
Bye bye Miss American Pie.
Took my Caddy to the library But the library was closed. (because Veteran’s Day)
First real snow of the season began around 7:30am. Temps in low 20s. Took care of work correspondence. Green tea and
