halloween 84

Me, Halloween 1984, age 25. It was still early, but I was getting into makeup for later on that night for the club.

Bad thing about all that makeup is that if you met somebody at the club, it was real hard to get OUT of that makeup. It was a lot of work and messy.

the burrower

There’s a dog under that blanket. JJ, “the burrower.”

who wants cheese?

The dogs requested the Tillamook Cheddar. They no longer like the store brand.

Yeah, right. If I’m yelling out the word “cheese” while serving, they’ll eat most anything I have in my hand.

so hungry

I’m trying to recover from something, but…

I’m down to skin and bones. He won’t bring me anything to eat. It’s like Joan Crawford in the wheelchair.

“But you are Blanche, you are in that chair!”

I just hope we don’t have rats in the cellar.

This is a cry for help. đŸ˜±

my last day with all original body parts

My final (stationary) bike ride today with all my original body parts. Tomorrow a hospital will install an artificial knee.

For the last few months, I can only walk about 100 meters without using things such as hiking poles. Even bike riding on the street has become difficult because I can no longer pull the hills. I switched to stationary.

This has been coming on for years, so here I go! I hear the surgery is “not that bad” but the recovery is long.

Gigantic sofa pass out with JJ last night after watching three episodes of Squid Game back to back.

long drive in yucatan in 2007, nescafe at pemex

In another thread, we were talking about drinking instant Nescafé.

I remember a good one from 2007. Me having a NescafĂ© at a Pemex truck stop just after sunrise somewhere ‘tween MĂ©rida and Palenque. Sleepy relaxed bliss while drinking it. The seven hours quoted by Google for the trip is very optimistic.

That was a big ‘ol long drive.
