Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Only Sixty Cents

"What time is it?"

"3:36" (unspoken AM)


"I was thinking of getting rid of you. A guy came through town and offered me $37.40, but I said I have too much money tied up in you, I reaLLy need $38. But he wouldn't budge off his price, got back on his horse and rode away."

Sarcastic "ha-ha" with weLL voiced hyphen response.

"I'm firsty"

"Me too, my cup is sitting right there"

I made us both decaf coffee, Folgers coffee bags, green.

You use firsty when your throat is too parched to say thirsty.

Cooper got a bowl fiLLed with ice then topped off with cold water.

I couldn't believe how cloudy it got yesterday without a drop of rain faLLing. The morning sky is dark and clear and cool, the piece of moon tiny long sliver long gone, just stars, no sound, no insects.

I love September in Texas.

I get two bags of grapes at the store. The store signs say they are white grapes and red grapes, but their packages have nothing and black for their labels but in my kitchen light they are definitely a pale green and a dark purple.

I eat my grapes in a 50:50 ratio, a pair of dark and light, same order throughout the eating process.

I freeze them for a few minutes right before eating, MmMmMmMmMm...

The Navajo Nation (Navajo: Naabeehó Bináhásdzo) is a semi-autonomous Native American-governed territory covering 27,425 square miles (71,000 km2), occupying portions of northeastern Arizona, southeastern Utah, and northwestern New Mexico. It is the largest land area assigned primarily to a Native American jurisdiction within the United States.

That means its larger than the ten smallest states individually. And, it is about the size of the five smallest states New Hampshire, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut, and Rhode Island combined.

I wondered why the sales tax on my meal was so high in Shiprock New Mexico. I was told the Navaho had started collecting some of the sales tax. With sales tax and casino earnings it shouldn't take them too long to buy back the entire country, from the Chinese.

There is nothing like September in Texas, for sure. We already have more rain the first week than we had all of the preceding six months~

Here in Britain we do not have a Texas, but we do have some rather nice Indian restaurants and rain.

And I noticed you bought grapes from the store rather than growing them from the ground

Someone is really lucky that guy was short 60 cents.

Freezing grapes for flavor. I do learn something new every day thanks to blogs. Appreciate it, ESB!

We are enjoying Longmire. Cate was disappointed to find out (from you) that it is filmed in New Mexico. Funny that the lead actor is Australian.

As a child I lived just east of Wyoming and now I live just east of New Mexico. I am stiLL too busy to get my recent journey documented properly where Wyoming was the secondary target after South Dakota. I am deeply sorry to have disappointed Cate indirectly. I wiLL try to make it up to her some how. Yes, I thought it was great he was an Aussie and also in The Matrix.

To everyone: Argh! My big finger accidentaLLy hit the delete key on my tiny iPhone screen and wiped out my reply comment to several people, sorry.

We have rain free clouds here too. I don't like fat free things, I pay for my butter, hey - I guess everyone pays for their butter one way or another!
And everyone pays for China one way or another...

I am veRy far from being fat free so most likely I am likeable. My mother purchased my set of China as a wedding present, Keltcraft by Noritake.
