Demo finished

Vocals finished. Demo done. It's up to Pat to work his magic.

Do your thing, Pat

Things accomplished yesterday:

Worked some more on my mom's house. (so much to go through)
Got new tags and registration for her car.
Laid down vocals in the studio on four songs that we'd begun last August.
Called my dad.
Called Spin.
Got a pizza delivered.

That's about it.

Dinner with my sis and bil today.

Supposed to be mid 60's with partial sun today. I might put the top down.

These are the days of miracle and wonder,
and don't cry, baby, don't cry. Don't cry. Don't cry.

We had my mom's service yesterday. I just couldn't, but then eventually got the tears to stop. The pastor was just ok. The one we've been having had a previous commitment. In the end who cares.
I'm just glad it's over. Now it's back to the house job when we all have the time. Forty-six years worth of stuff to go through. We're 3/4 done with the main floor. The downstairs should be easier? Then the estate sale.

It's all a process.

I can't get the cold water faucet in the shower to stop dripping. It does this on occasion. I've replaced the thing with brand new but it doesn't matter. Major professional work needed sometime soon. It eats at me every time I go in there.

I'm slow-cooking some navy beans with a smoked ham hock. The stove is doing most of the work. The ham hock just sits there.

Living on the edge.
Taking care of business.

Onward, right?

So the newscaster said that "wind gusts tossed things 100 years, I mean 100 yards..."

And I thought well what if wind gusts COULD toss things 100 years? Would it be to the future or to the past? Would it depend on the thing being tossed?

We met with the hospice nurse yesterday.

My first

No update for quite some time about the moms and her health. Mostly because there is nothing at all good to say about it. And since it's been so long, there is too much to say now. She's been in a rehabilitation place for a month now, very clean, attentive staff. A place where some patients come and go, others don't. The moms won't.

She never rebounded from surgery and radiation, has been failing and has basically given up. She eats and drinks less than a bird, is down to 71 lbs. She has stage four lung cancer that spread to her brain, COPD/emphysema, and some dementia. Our efforts over the past six + months to get her to eat more have failed.

She rallied fairly well after the passing of my stepfather of over 50 years, two and a half years ago, even started driving again. But with the cancer diagnosis last summer, and the following treatments, she feels there is nothing to go home for and is very, very weak. We visit her daily. I'm not sure for how much longer.

That's the abbreviated version. Bleak.

And so...

Trudging along the highway rural, buried by the world, I pass a large field of sparse sheep, maybe two dozen, with lambs. Lambs! Prancing. Half a dozen follow the leader up and over a mound on the ground. Gleeful shout in the noisy cab. If only I could stop for ten minutes and watch.

Way worse.

And now there is a gag order on all EPA employees.

They cannot even talk about even THAT. It was leaked.

This is worse than imagined.

Way worse.

We must continue to be vocal.
