Not all who wander are lost'

Hobo's Walkabout

I look out my door and see the bridge over the molt, the cold snow smothering the ground around it, the water frozen underneath, I have handrails to help me cross so I don't slip and fall, my car only 50 meters away, not ridden for some weeks, covered in snow, but a large broom will sweep off the top and a horse hair brush it's sides.

The engine can be made warm from the house, it is plugged in from the house and a flicker of the wrist and my finger will push the on button.

I need only a small bag to travel, as there are items I need for hygiene if I am to travel alone. There is no reason I can't leave, I have a great safe car, money to tide me over, I'm not afraid of anything, I love being alone, but something,some unknown force is keeping me from putting my foot over the threshold. It's not that I can't leave the house and handle daily matters, or trips to the big city 50 kilometers away, it is something deeper. In a way I know what it is, it's called d.i.s.h and it is causing me some unknown horrors of pain. It also is getting to the point where I am so stiff that I can't dress myself and have to have my husband put my socks and undies on me, and if I want to wear proper winter boots he has to tie the shoestrings. So the truth is out, I am a failing, falling apart woman. They couldn't and can't break my mind, but my body is just a machine with rust in it's joints.

I wonder if I should chance it and go, I know I have the love and support from my husband, if I call he will come. It's wonderful to have such love and to know I am loved.

MY SON PAUL IN AUSTRALIA

June 8 2013

Went to the man's birth town for his school reunion get together. It was a long day. 400 miles of driving, 4 hours of sitting in the car waiting for him, I parked the car by the riverside, watched a steady stream of boats, yachts and small ships coming and going,  walked the dog , read, took a nap and went once to the outside of the town to pee and buy the dog some food.  about 8 hours of driving too.

June 9 2913

My little bottom hurts, I sat too too much yesterday and I think I can't spend another minute on this site today.  need only to go to town and get some medicine.  Than home again and will rest in bed all day.  Exhausted as too is my partner.

  The day you left with mom, I knew you would be gone.
How sad for me my life was doomed, no more walks or being groomed!
My life would change forever more.

And just as all my senses ceased, a package came, I smelled her on your clothes..., remember the blue shirt you sent mom?  A stranger's scent upon my nose, but stronger still was yours.

Those worried days are in my past, with dog years time goes very fast. Packages come and packages go, I tear the paper, kissing you, your smells from far away. I know you love me everyday.

And now you say that you will wed, I've just one question 'bout the bed,
I understand she's yours to keep, but where, oh where now, will she sleep?

Love, Tempy

PS: I sleep in your room everyday.


Cinco de Mayo

First run in 1948, the 125-nautical mile race is steeped in history with one of Newport Beach's international sister cities, Ensenada, Mexico. With more than 50 trophy categories and classes for monohulls, multihulls, and cruisers, this race is great whether you are a first-time racer or an experienced pro!.



DENGUE FEVER

I THOUGHT OF THIS ADVICE AFTER YOU TOLD ME PAULO HAS DENGUE FEVER. PASS THIS ON TO ANYONE WHO LIKES SITTING OUT IN THE EVENING OR WHEN THEY'RE HAVING A COOKOUT. NO ONE LIKES THOSE PESKY MOSQUITOES ESPECIALLY NOW THAT THEY CARRY THE WEST NILE VIRUS.
HERE IS A TIP MY FRIEND SKI SENT TO ME.

PUT SOME WATER IN A WHITE DINNER PLATE AND ADD A FEW DROPS OF LEMON FRESH JOY DISH DETERGENT. HERE WE HAVE FAIRY AND I THINK THERE IS A LEMON FAIRY. I'LL CHECK SET THE DISH ON YOUR PORCH, DECK, OR ANY OUTDOOR AREA. NOT SURE WHAT ATTRACTS THEM. THE LEMON, THE WHITE PLATE BUT MOSQUITOES FLOCK TO IT, AND DROP DEAD SHORTLY AFTER DRINKING THE LEMON/WATER MIXTURE, AND USUALLY WITHIN ABOUT 10 FEET OF THE PLATE. CHECK THIS OUT...IT WORKS. MAY SEEM TRIVAL, BUT IT MAY HELP CONTROL MOSQUITOES AROUND THE HOME.
