Gradually degenerating into ignorance and complacency.

reminder of how weak you are

Tawnya got a puppy on Sunday. He was a cute little puppy who "didn't like men". Well, he took a liking to me and would follow me wherever I went. He wrestled with me, suckled on my arm and snuggled next to me.

That was Sunday, Monday, and part of Tuesday.

On Wednesday, his previously unrecognized parvo took a toll on him and he had to be put down.

It reminded me that we come into the world weak, and only with love, security, and luck do we survive any length of time.

Goodnight Scooby!


Dad chopped down some limbs and branches from the sickly front tree. He didn't notice but I found a paper wasp nest. I showed Morgan, the little girl next door. She thought the larvae squirming around were funny. I suppose so. I usually don't harm things, including insects, but I know from experience that wasps can be aggressive and protect nests. Kids, especially, pay the price for the wasps' aggression. I sprayed the hive after I took the photo.


I haven't written in a bit.

I am a bit beaten and feeling rundown. I look at the screen and have typers' block. I may soon write again. Maybe that and walking will make me feel like a person again.

planned to fail?

Maybe they should have someone edit their work.
