If I wasn’t so tired, I could be rich

Dammit, I waited too long! I know there was a story behind this title. Apparently I wrote this on August 12 at 12:25 am. Now I have no clue what it’s all about. Oh well, maybe I should just use it and move on. . . probably something I read.

August 12th, that’s 3 days ago. And I have no idea what the above title is referring too.

Okay, so how about some pictures?

Years ago Pam came over with an old red and rusty chair. She said it was her dad’s and she didn’t want to throw it out. She thought it would look good in my garden. Hmm, whatever. The chair was hidden behind a tree in my garden for years. But then I had the old shed ripped down and replaced with a nice new one . . . and so the chair stuck out like a sore thumb — a dirty, rusty one, at that.

So today I will post pictures of the rebirth of the old red rusty chair:

Aww, how pretty!!!!

Tomorrow: maybe some pics of my pepper plant!

Go Ahead, I’ll Help You

Law and Order is on,” says my drew as he plays around with the remote.

OMG, your kidding, that’s what is missing from my life. I haven’t had a chance to sit mindlessly in front of the tv with Law and Order on while I write my blog.

“Well it’s on now. Start writing,” he says.

“But I haven’t been able to get past the titles.”

“Come on now, I’ll help you,” he cheerfully says.

He is lounging on the couch, eyes half closed, seems to be paying attention to the tv show. He’s looking cute, as usual. Wow, I think I’m getting it back. Yes, yes, I am. And I don’t think it’s Law and Order at all. I think it’s my drew. His scent (and snore) is getting my creative juices going.

Problem is I don’t think I have ever seen this episode. It’s hard to write and pay attention. I might have to continue this during the Yankee game tonight.

“Look at this,” my drew says as he glides through the tv guide  –Law and Order is on for hours. Wow, I think I am back in business.

Ahhh, I don’t know I still am having a hard time getting out the words. What should I write about?

“I thought it was going to be about me trying to help you?” says Drew.

“Yeah, well, help already,” I say.

His response: “I can’t write it for you.”

Hmmm, okay, maybe not BUT you can provide the material!

Yankee game on. I feel a tap on my shoulder and I hear Drew’s voice. “You’re doing your thingie?’

I respond with a slight nod of the head.

“See how I got you going?”

A Collection of Titles

Yes, I know . . . I haven’t written anything in quite a while. I keep trying but nothing comes out. I have a collection of titles but no posts. Just haven’t been able to write . . . my brain is filled with distractions. Right now it is pouring out — yay for the plants. I have to pick Cheryl up at the LIRR in 20 minutes. According to the website the Babylon branch is suspended. Big news on channel 7 — major disruptions on the LIRR . . . many branches suspended service including Babylon. According to Cheryl the 4:12 out of Penn Station is running and she is on it!!!

Go figure!!!!!

Will get back to my blog . . . I just need time to think . . . . .
