more oysters

Gmorning, world.  I wrote a fundraising letter, and we’re sending it to about 1,900 people.  I’ve folded lots of them.  Our friend King Ron read it yesterday and liked it, not finding or at least not mentioning any typos.

car wash

We’re getting our car washed and the tv is killing me.  Election news, smarmy doctors, offensive commercials. I’m amazed by how thorough they’re being. They’ve been cleaning the inside of the car for half an hour. Today we have a goddess temple board meeting and a time bank orientation. Also a hitchhiking friend is stuck […]
