Winding down

Well, tomorrow is my last day of vacation, and it's pretty booked: a funeral for the lady who lived next door to my grandmother in the morning, then Free Comic Book Day, then church at 4:00, then the bloggers' gathering at Mark's Pub in Wilkes-Barre. Sunday night it's back to work, for four nights - then we resume the four days off - four nights on routine.

Today was a pretty laid-back day. Stayed in bed late, screwed around on the computer a bit (well, more than a bit), paid a bunch of bills, and then draped nets over the pollinated blossoms on my two cherry trees. Last year I waited too long, and the birds stripped the pea-sized developing cherries from the trees by May 10. I think I got three-and a half cherries from the two trees in the whole season.

Now I'm off for a shower, and then I'm going to the wake for my grandmother's neighbor - now my neighbor. She had been in bad shape since before I bought the house in 2006, but we got to talk a few times while she sat on her back porch and I worked in my back yard. She was very sweet and very nice, and I have known her all my life. She will be missed. And another living connection to the past has gone away.

...

a funeral for the lady who lived next door to my grandmother in the morning, ...The smart-arse commenter would ask you who the lady lived next door to in the afternoon...

. . .but no, that would definitely not be me.

Just a random tease/poke. I am sure you deserve it for some reason...
