Pater Dias

Hey, Bhu! How U do on Father's Day? "Me is glad U is mai poppy. Pet me and give me Appetizer now!" All days of commemoration turn out the same way for Bhu: pets and food. Hmmmm, I'm now wondering if it's any different for the 'beins? Maybe not!

We are catapulting through the summer, but it is fun! I'm happy to finally be able to spend hours and hours in the sun and in the heat without getting very ill. Thanks to my doctor for figuring out that hydrochlorothiazide was an evil toxin and taking it off my list of meds. People always ask, "How's retirement?" and I have to say that the University is dawdling with processing my retirement so I don't anticipate seeing a penny of my pension for several months nor do I have prescription coverage. And I'm working part-time. I do have more time for fun in the mornings, though! A couple of weeks ago I took another art class and this week I'm going to learn how to can! I'm working on several fiber projects and have even mulched the garden! Stuff is getting done! I'm not sitting around wondering "What will I do with my life?" I'm not inviting girlfriends to lunch every day; I'm not lonely, but I guess that's because of the part-time job. Who knows. Anyway, I'm what you could call "Happy." Sorta. xxoo Patty

Girly TuTu

Watchu doin', Bhu? "Keepin' mai furrz clean and neat." That old wooden chair is nice and cool in the summer, huh? "But it iz slippurry." Well, nothing can be purrrfect! "Why U call this post Girly TuTu?" I felt like it. Sometimes words can be like musical notes or percussion, you know, as in Doo wop doo wah or Sha na na. "Did some other 'beans effur tell U yer brain works diffrent furrum theirs?" Allatime! "No wonder."

Lately I've caught myself sobbing about the oil spill. People seem so unfazed by the catastrophe! It's still pouring forth! There are a few "fundraising" efforts, but PEOPLE! This is NOT a natural disaster! This is a CORPORATE CRIME AGAINST THE EARTH! WTF! If my anger upsets anyone, just know this: I have had a "I'M MAD AS HELL AND I'M NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANYMORE!" conversion. I've tried to be nice, but it doesn't work. So, be forewarned. xxooo Patty
