Steph’s daughter Melissa made her a quilt. It’s quite fine I must say and I believe it’s her first one.

Here it is painted:

La Niña

It looks like a La Niña episode is heading our way this Winter. These things are wet so it means heavy snow for us. Arizona is looking good about now…

What I Know

I am insanely strong for a seventy one year old man. Up until I caught the flu at Broulims last Saturday I was building up my workouts to the point that I needed to increase the reps and the weights daily because my recovery time was amazing and my body was demanding more.

The flu knocked me on my ass and settled into an old problem area of mine, the lower back. I refused to break my vow of no medications or pills and managed to drive the entire week without anything other than some throat losenges and a heating pad.

Here’s what I know, listen up!

Everything that happens in your life from the moment you are conceived is stored in your brain. The older you get, the more that gets stored. I have so many memories of so many moments and so many relationships and so many fuck-ups that going to bed and quieting my mind is a formidiable task.

You need to stretch your body outward every morning in bed with arms and legs extended completely, before you get up. At that point you are connected to god, and all of your past friends and family up there are waiting to hear what you have to say.

Tell them this:

I’m sorry for all of the bad things I’ve done, please forgive me, thank you for everything I have, I love you.

And then visualize all that you love and ask that they be protected and happy as the day unfolds.

Me, I start with Steph, my kittie, my son Riley and work my way outward…

That new building between the Dollar Store and Ace Hardware is coming right along. It’s pretty cool having buildings on both sides, you don’t have to put walls there, just build up from the middle and make the brick work match.

Yesterday it was stormy so they didn’t work, but today they put up a large piece of plastic to cover the workers. You can’t let their backs get wet!

Teenie Sardini

I walked into Ace Hardware today and found a small cat toy stuffed with catnip. When I presented it for purchase the counter girls asked “What is that”? When I told them it was a birthday present for my cat they both said “Ahhhh”, and points were made.

Piper loved it and of course I had to turn it into a work of art:
