A wretched day, yesterday. Cold, windy, icy rain pelting down in heavy sheets. I waited for a calm spell to walk through the forest to feed the chickens. Got home just in time for another furious lightning, thunder, downpour. 

There was a shed fire day before yesterday at a neighbor's home and the entire family filed out to fight the blaze. There was a total loss to the shed, the garage had heat damage, and the house was saved. Laura was busy in the morning trying to get the Fire District report to the auditor on time when the fire call came in. She fought the fire and was late with the report. Her excuse, "fighting a fire."

Chris, the first paragraph:

"Just being happy with what I have, not wanting things around that confuse me or interrupt what I am doing, is just fine. I have a cell phone in my car but only because I sometimes can't find my way home, even on familiar streets. My son-in-law asked if he could install a GPS unit on my car and I most gratefully said yes. I have never used the cell phone they gave me." 

startled me because it was mine. The rest of the piece confirmed my impression,
I'm glad it was useful for your class and I appreciate the kind words.

I should have been more precise and note whose text I use - stupid of me! But as far as I know you, you're just as as nice a person!

Chris, I'm sorry I didn't notice your comment earlier. And I'm not sure I understand.

Although it sounds a little like me, it isn't. For one, I'm 73. Another, I constantly rearrange my furniture. Most of the rest is true and describes me! Anyway, I appreciate the thought and happy it's being shared, despite the author. I would like to think I'm a "nice person"!

While I'm here, permit me to say I enjoyed some hot oat meal with blueberries for breakfast. Coffee, of course. And watching the early birds gather nesting material and worms or bugs. Ah, Spring.

Just being happy with what I have, not wanting things around that confuse me or interrupt what I am doing, is just fine. I have a cell phone in my car but only because I sometimes can't find my way home, even on familiar streets. My son-in-law asked if he could install a GPS unit on my car and I most gratefully said yes. I have never used the cell phone they gave me. 

I like my house the way it is arranged ... hadn't been rearranged in 40 years. I like my garden, weed and all, with all the lovely things that happen out there. I don't want a phone there because it would interrupt my meditation/gardening.

All my furniture was purchased in the 1960s. Even most of my electrical appliances were bought before 1974, except the washer, drying, dishwasher, and hot water heater. 

I'm 78, everything I have is all I want or need. Even my old car should hold up for the rest of my journey. All my clothes were purchased when I was 50 pounds heavier. I guess I do need to update my wardrobe ... but those old things are so comfortable. 

There is one thing I can't do without and I replace every few years, my computer. Everything about it is just a miracle. I have a built in dictionary, maps, spelling and grammar checks, photo albums, camera, weather reports, mail, calendar, word processor, statistical analysis program, music, videos, books, kindle, and daily contact with those who matter to me. I even have a delete and block button. I don't have to tolerate nonsense. I wish I had that feature for dealing with family

I'm rather sure this was your text, Randall. I've used it without your permission because there was no time and I needed a small reading text. So I copied it for lessons and all the students talked about what a nice person wrote it and how they would like to know someone like that. So love for you from a group of Dutch/German/Surinam, etc. elderly students in Rotterdam.

I hear you, "Qiana". I'm a loner, too, but try to be sociable.

By the way, I bought a "new" percolater at Salv. Army ( I hesitate to admit), and tried it for the first time this morning. Not bad.

The only coffee worth drinking in my town is my own. Most places here serve dishwater, & I actually  like coffee in my coffee.

As for meaningful conversation, I am a loner, who doesn't particularly like to talk.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 12, 2016 at 7:17am

I live outside a small town of 1500 (Rossville, IN). Coffee shops come and go--more go than come. I once tried to participate--to socialize with my fellow Hoosiers, shooting the fat (as they say) with other retirees and farmers, mostly the latter. Boooring. The clientelle is conservative, religious, and ignorant, my polar opposites.  Too bad. I'd like to engage in some meaningful conversation while drinking a cuppa joe. This site is the only alternative. At least I have coffee.

Winds can be deadly, & happens far too often.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 4, 2016 at 6:35am

Spring, around here, has taken a U-turn. Cold and extremely windy--up to 70mph gusts. Glad I had an old catalpa tree removed before it fell on the house. I saw where a tree fell on a car killing two people. It always makes me wonder what "believers" think or say: "God's will"? Crazy.

Anyway, despite achy joints, I'm glad I don't have to go to school on this dreary Monday morning. It's nice being retired! Enjoy your day.
