Happy 4th to you all!!
Himself: Estate sale, museum, dinner, grocery shopping, computer games….truly a day off.
Herself: Did “all of the above” plus worked on the chapbook. Found three really good cookbooks. Don’t know if “
“Amy’s Vegetarian Lasagna” works with my allergies as I was up all night with ugly nightmares.
Gratitude: That most of the big donation of books is done and the boss moved the books out of the spotlight and off sale.
Instead of arriving before dawn to get our place to party on the beach just blocks from the house, we plot a way to get from our house to Mount Soledad through the millions lining the way, the blocked streets, closed byways, BBQ’s, flotopias, drunks, and partiers of all stripes. We have a commitment at the AA meeting on top of the mountain where at least five thousand more will be watching all the fireworks though out the city from this spot high in the sky. Imagine the parking crush.
This morning the Geezer plots paths through the worst of it with variations like: “We could take Morena.” Morena Boulevard lies a distance away from our house on the far side of the 5 freeway. It used to be Highway 101 near the swamps and marshes of Mission Bay. If we leave at 4:30pm, will we be able to arrive by 7:30….the witching hour? We take someone with us. Will she be OK leaving that early?
Gee, maybe I should take a flashlight and a book.
