"Good luck with the move. As for the big vinyl collection and the books, they go deep in a closet, never to be seen again. Don't ask me how I know."

"Anna,  All I think Ron is saying, in his own way, is that he plays his cards close to his chest. Others fan them out in front of everybody. My dad was a gambler. Hence the metaphor."

"I understood Ron. I understand that it also might be that others didn't. That's what the new OurS could be like.  Statement. Question. Follow up."

"k/s, I re-read lorianne's statement about political posts. I don't think she is saying more than that some have complained. That is what I gathered from the message. I do not see that she is voicing a personal objection."

Happy 2018

Posted on December 1, 2017 at 10:52am 5 Comments

I'm busy wrapping up business for the year, packing and deciding on what to keep of a lifetime accumulation of stuff and where to put a dozen guitars, and other stringed instruments. Where do the big vinyl collection and the books go? Too many books.

Wait....I know where.

I'll drop in and say hello next month.

Be well, healthy and kind to yourself and neighbors.

I meant to keep a lifelong journal. It was going to be lists, such as a list of every book I read or every movie I've seen. 

It was going to have a log of every trip I took with little notations about the weather that day. It was going to mention every dinner and what was eaten.

It might be an interesting piece by now but it didn't happen.

I thought at one time for some reason that it would be helpful to have kept track of all that.

The stuff of a…
