Mulling it Over
My sidekick Ron M., without whom I'd be a lost soul for sure, is out of town for a few weeks. It has got to the point where we do just about everything together, so I miss him. Afton Station is closed up tight for the next month. I do have several bright spots in my future, however. Yesterday my friend, who is also an organizer, came over and we got started on cleaning and organizing my gigantic walk-in closet -- almost as big as another room -- which had become the repository of everything that has come into my life in the past 10 years that had no other place to reside. It was actually fun, and at times we were doubled over in laughter. I'm glad we didn't finish and that it will take another couple of sessions before we get it all sorted out into Keep, Trash, and Donate piles. Being with a friend, even when doing somewhat distasteful chores, can be a lot of fun. Here's part of it, but not the done part.

On another day in the next couple of weeks, I want to take a ride west on Route 66. I haven't been out that way for a while. Maybe I'll make it to Stroud and grab some lunch at the Rock Cafe. If the sun would come out, I'd be a happier person and less likely to write long, boring treatises like this, for which I am apologetic. Every now and then a girl's got to vent, I think. Lucky you. You got to hear it. And writing it has made me feel a lot less lonely.
