It has been three weeks since I posted here. Forgive me. Life has been nuts, and I haven’t been feeling well. But that’s no excuse.

I’m making some changes around here. My mailing address and e-mail address are changing. No, I haven’t moved. The post office somehow decided to change the numbers on a bunch of our boxes. No warning, just a sticker with a different number. When I went to tell the postmistress she had put the wrong number on my box, she informed me it was the right number. So it’s P.O. Box 755 now. If you know me, you know the rest of the address.

I have also changed Internet companies, so you can now reach me at In switching to Charter, I also changed TV providers. So far, I really like the new service, but I’m adjusting to a new remote control and new channel guide with new channels. One perk is a local access channel. So far I’ve watched a high school band concert, a city council meeting, a local storyteller, and aging surfers reminiscing. It’s very cool to turn on the TV and see people I know.

To make way for new carpeting, I have also torn the den apart, but first I have to deal with water coming up under the carpet and mold in one corner. Blech. I’m waiting for estimates. While I had everything out of the way, I painted the room. What color? It’s white, but they call it “vanilla custard.” Annie was so helpful she ate my stir stick before I got the paint open. She was subsequently banished to the back yard until the paint dried.

Speaking of Annie, while I was doing yoga on the deck Sunday, I informed her it was time for savasana, otherwise known as the corpse pose or complete relaxation. Lying on my back relaxing, I opened one eye and caught her lying on her back with her feet in the air. Now that’s a smart dog.

More to come soon.
