Not as exciting as jlsathre crossing the border to Mexico. Tho I have to say that the instant we crossed from Canada into the U.S, there was taco wagon after taqueria after Mexican restaurant after taco wagon (rinse… Read full post »
“I've got quite a story to tell you,” my handyman/reno guy said.
He called by this afternoon. I hadn't expected him until after tomorrow – which is Welfare Wednesday. He'd temporarily stopped work for me last weekend so as… Read full post »
“I'm 77 and one step from heaven,” the old man said.
“Well, I'm 78 and a step closer than you,” I said.
“78, nearly at heaven's gate,” he suggested.
“Thanks – I'll remember that one,” I said, though of course I planned to put it out of my mind the… Read full post »
A few weeks later the Elder returned.
It was mid-morning and I was sitting in his chair, sipping tea from his cup, leafing through one of the books from his shelf (an encyclopedia of secret societies) when I heard a car pull up in front and then someone trying the… Read full post »
My older daughter and her husband took our dog and three cats in my mini-van across the country. But my younger daughter, who moved to B.C. with me, has a cat that cannot share its bit of the universe… Read full post »

Since I buy used cars, I'm always several years, even a decade, behind the times. I used to rent cars occasionally when I visited my sister in Alberta, and the cars were like my own back home, except shinier and cleaner.

Talk about no escape, being shot like fish in a barrel, implacable enemy... Talk about death raining down on them, being thrown out of their homes, being robbed of their livelihood, their homes and then their very lives.
Yes, the Palestinians.
By people who suffered similarly...but in magnit… Read full post »
I have furniture!
I had to go out and buy some for my new place because I'm not shipping any from the old place. Well, actually, I have none to ship. All I had, basically, was bookshelves and file cabinets. Many file cabinets. My handyman took them all. He's going… Read full post »
I don't want to be here any more.
I'm not talking about OS. Tho I COULD feel that way, what with all the stupididdity and awfoolness and toxic bile spills going on.
Nor about being on the planet – I'm still into hanging in, hanging on, hanging around despite all the… Read full post »
I'd put out info on Pagan lists, hoping that someone out there would buy my place, and take care of its *sacred sites* and all. I'd just about given up and was ready to sell to a cowan/muggle. A farewell afternoon was arranged and invitations sent out… Read full post »
So, since the tenant on one side of my new (new-to-me) duplex decamped before vacate date, I went to Hope to get some stuff done.

So said the steward on our flight in his we're-about-to-land blurb. Also: “Your luggage should be available within two to three working days. Oh sorry, I was thinking of [rival airline].”
Note – those were jokes. Apparently it's kind of a fad at the moment for air… Read full post »
