STILL a bachelor
(cow spoon rests by Gary Rith)
Missus Potsblog still on the road with her mother and aunt, so I continue holding down the fort and w-o-r-k-i-n-g. Without the wife around I could watch music videos and South Park episodes all night long if I wanted to. IF I wanted to. But mostly you notice the little things she does, like make the bed, which is a rats nest full of sleeping dogs and cats right now, and those dogs and cats sure miss her too. Pavlov's beagle, Penny, knows that the Missus usually comes home on the 5 o'clock bus past our house, and she goes bananas when she sees it. (dogs are pretty smart, aren't they? of all the buses all day, Penny goes nuts when she sees the 5 o'clock bus) Well, anyway, I spent the morning yesterday doing my usual lousy cleanup job on the house because my parents came over to mooch lunch off me. It was, if I may say, superb--BBQ veggie burgers, pasta salad and raspberry cake. It was also about 93-97 degrees yesterday depending where you looked, beastly hot.
Speaking of which, I need to fire a load of things today. Ugh. That will make the overheated house somewhat hotter...
