Prelude to a Kiss

I took a nap this evening when I got home from work.  Nothing unusual about that.  But I woke up dreaming about a kiss.  In the dream I was at a gathering with several friends, including a few from my undergraduate days at the university.  And there was one woman there that I knew slightly, and had known for some time.  But not anyone I recognize.  Kinda like an old friend, and kinda like an actress.  Maybe a bit like Helen Hunt.…

Running Man News TV

I found out that Reality TV served up a new man of the hour -- Ben Richards.  Or maybe his name is George Zimmerman.  Or something like that.

Salty Camping

In a group where I am a member, someone posted a message about camping, and last night I posted a reply.  And something about camping became a part of the dream I was having when I awoke this morning.

I was with an aunt (the only one left alive), and she told me that her son had been released from federal prison (drugs). I hadn't seen him since he became a fugitive from justice 20 years ago, and I told my aunt that I would like to see him.  When I said that he stepped from behind a…

Our "farmers market" is open, and I went there this morning.  The couple from down around Carbondale was there, and they had tomatoes from their garden.  Heaven on earth!!!  I bought a big bag full of tomatoes.  I just love tomatoes!  Not the hydroponic kind, though.  But real garden-grown tomatoes are the bee's knees!  I had tomato and mayonnaise sandwiches for supper.

Here's a link as an obscure reference to Liza Minnelli, a beautiful tomato:…
