I need sunshine. I need heat. I need to put away hats and gloves and scarves. I NEED SPRING. Is it ever going to come???
The black monster* is sitting in the corner in the kitchen. It cannot be fed for 24 hours. Man, that thing is going to be ravenous by tomorrow at this time. I hope it doesn’t eat PD while I’m at work tomorrow. It’s big enough, it could conceivably swallow him whole… The thing didn’t look that big in the store. But you know, it really adds character to my kitchen. Although a big black hungry monster lurking in a corner would add character to any room.
Remember my friend Rick who was having some problems at Christmas? God bless him; when I came home Easter evening from a day with the Fambly, the answering machine was blinking. I pushed play and there was Rick, singing two verses of “Easter Parade”.
“In your Easter bonnet, with all the fringe (he sang) upon it, you’ll be the grandest lady in the Easter parade… On the avenue, (My street name he sang) … etc.”
Rick has had several strokes and his speech is a bit garbled, but I understood perfectly what he sang and it touched my heart and brought a tear.
