That was the nickname I had for Ming, long ago, when we were young.  I called him Freaky Mantis.  He was very thin and angular.  I could see his ribs.  He would forget to eat. Medication changes and birthdays later, Ming is… Read More »

moonshadow

This morning very early, I recorded a cover of Moonshadow.  It was fun.  I hope you like it, if you listen. Then Ming and I went for a morning walk that was a little too ambitious for me.  When we come here to Beatty, I always want to rest a lot.  I think it’s the… Read More »
