Ming’s got his health problem back–we thought he was well, but he’s not. We feel worried and my joy is sapped. Did I tell you someone abandoned their truck in our driveway? It’s been there for a month. We have a driveway wide enough for about nine cars (there are three houses on our property). […]
Ate some bad expensive Indian food. They gave me some rice that was in a metal dish that had a lid so hot I couldn’t touch it. I used my fabric napkin to open the lid. Also we went to Red Rock today and enjoyed a walk in a canyon. The earth was blue then […]

Ming and I were walking at the park. I was complaining more than usual. We saw a scrub jay. For some reason I explained they like the scrub. “Do you mean shrubs?” Ming asked. “No, the scrub,” I said. “You know, like in the foothills, not the conifer forest or the real oaks–just the scrub.” […]
