t was warm last night. We slept with the bedroom window open. We had also changed our sheets from the fleece to the microfiber.

he view of the sky was, once again, as from under a pewter lid. Yesterday’s twenty mile per hour winds gusts have calmed to a pleasant breeze, like a lover’s breath upon your neck.

hile still in bed this morning I heard the sounds of “m-a-w m-a-w from outside my bedroom window.

It was not the panic cry of a lost child. It was the plaintive bleat of a goat. The park owners have three in a pen.

he goats are our nearest neighbours to the west. Though the goats are cordial enough, they no longer come to lunch as they did back in our first year here. In those days the critters roamed the entire property. I referred to them as the lawn care crew as ate their way around the lawns.

owever, one warm fall day, as we were having a lunch under the awning of our RV, one overly friendly goat climbed Ella’s lap and stared her in the face, as if begging for a bite of her sandwich.

I’ve often wondered what MadElla was mad about. But the answer was right there in front of me, parking. It kind of pisses me off too. People parking on the yellow striped spaces between handicap spaces angers me also.

unch at the senior center was fried potatoes, sausage patties, and French toast. The other way of saying that is, “Breakfast”.

upper was a creative use of leftover pork rib, rice, and beans. The rib meat was shredded then mixed with rice and beans, plus some shredded cheddar cheese. A dollop of sour cream and a little salsa. Warm some tortillas and “pesto changeo” an entirely new meal.

I spent a little time working on a business card. What do you think?

h yes at sundown, we are still stuck under that pewter lid. Tomorrow and Wednesday are predicted to have showers and/or storms.
