March 2017


Wednesday 01- 62 to 42 sunny, but cool.

I did my stretches, core trainer, weight bench, punched the heavybag for a spell and jogged a mile with the dogs. I am still having pain in my right wrist and am keeping the weights lite.



Thursday 02- 68 to 45

Went to my doctor’s appointment. He wants me to take another lab test. I told him about the pain in my arm and wrist and he said to stop lifting weights for a while to see if it gets better,  Got some supplies at Stater Bros.

I did my stretches and went on a mile jog with the doggies.

I had to drive back down to the doctor’s office to pick up a kit I need to take with me to the lab.


Tuesday 07- 68 to 70

Went to the lab in Yucca to have blood work done. I then went to the Sizzler alone missing Sherry who used to go there with me for linder we called it (lunch/dinner). I then went to Home Depot to gather 20 more paver for the laundry room and also purchased a Sawzall to cut wood.

I started writing chapter 5.

Worked laying down the rest of the pavers.

I got a call from Marguerite telling me our Aunt Audrey had passed peacefully this morning at 5:30 AM and Marguerite and Justin were there by her side. I called family members to let them know of her passing.

I continued to work on my book and finished chapter 5.


Saturday 11- 84 to 59

I did my stretches, exercised on the weight bench and punched the heavybag for a short spell.

I wasted the day on a friend who turned Troll on my FaceBook page ranting about my "List of Wants" I tried to calm him down when he started trolling to my cousin and other friends. Nothing I tried worked and he just grew worse. I told him not to use foul language on my Timeline and he unfriended me. He and his rantings and ravings are now gone and forgotten. I knew him in the 70s as an acquaintance. Shame it ended this way, but it was his decision and a wasted time for me when I could have been writing chapter 6.

I took the dogs for an evening walk and then worked on and finished chapter 6 of my book.


Wednesday 15- 88 to 61 clear skies.

I stayed up very late writing to finish chapter 6 and slept in really late and got up around noon. My dogs were hungry and weren't none too happy about that. I did do my stretches. I spent over an hour on the phone with Home Depot and then T-Mobile getting things set straight about my accounts.

I saved the day when I took the dogs for a jog in the evening when it was cooler and then planted some cacti and watered the plants.

I will start chapter 7 tonight.


Thursday 16- 88 to 60 degrees.

I had a dream about that girl again last night. She isn’t a young girl any longer, just a year or two younger than me, but I remember her as she was in her youth and beauty. In my dream I had taken her out to dinner at an outside cafe. I excused myself from the table to wash my hands in the restroom while she sat there at the table with a bright smile all dressed up and looking very pretty. There was a couch there in the restroom and I laid myself down to rest for a second. Next thing I know someone was pounding on the door yelling, “Get up, get up! You’ve been in there for hours.”

I rose quickly and went outside to find my girlfriend sitting in a yellow taxi about ready to drive away. Just then, her father drove up (played by Ed Asner) and told me how dare I abandon his lovely daughter. Dumbstruck, I stood there as she stepped out of the taxi and went to her father’s car and sat inside, her father shut the car door on her side and drove off. The taxi driver came up and asked for a tip, and then the waiter came and handed me a bill for $119 and said the cafe doesn’t take credit cards. (I’ve included this dream into my book)

I did my stretches, took the doggies on a mile jog, I only exercises that didn’t hurt my wrist: exercised on the weight bench, did pullups on with the core trainer punched the heavybag for a spell.

Today they are taking my father and stepmother’s ashes out to sea. My sister Leeanne was there with her family, along with others. My father and stepmother made it very clear it was their wish we not have any kind of ceremony. My sister Lynn and I respected their wishes, but we also respect and understand those who didn’t and their need for closure.

Potluck was pretty nice with around fifteen starving folks showing up at our community doors to share and eat what was being shared. It was Dyan’s birthday so we all stood up to sing her Happy Birthday while she sat there in her seat being embarrassed by all the attention. She received many gifts and many hugs from her friends. Chris and Mary brought fried chicken and hot dogs with all the fixins. Dorothy and Dyan cooked all day over a hot oven to bring us all carrot cake, turkey stuffing, braised cabbage, and a yummy casserole. David King concocted a pear walnut thingy.  John Lee brought us two gallons of tea to swallow it all down with. There was some yammering going on about this that and other things that ain’t fit to print here, but we all had a wonderful time doing it.

*************** Stuff I wrote this Month **************


Walking into the ballroom her beauty was such, as if light focused on a prism burst into vibrant colors bedazzling those in her presence ~RD


We are where we’re supposed to be because we either left where we were or ended up staying where we are.

It doesn't hurt to dream of the impossible because sometimes the impossible can come true. We live in a world full of what was once impossible dreams.

My Wants:

I want a world free from hunger
where no one goes hungry because they are poor
I want a free educational system
where students aren’t drowning in debt
I want good healthcare for the impoverished
that never denies or turns them away
I want an end to belief systems
pointing out differences of color gender and race
I want a society based on merit and creativity
instead of money and greed
I want an end to countries dependent on bullets and bombs
killing man woman and child
I want a new paradigm without money
sucking up resources and spitting out waste
I want everyone safe on this little planet
that spins happily around this vastness of space
I want all of these and I’ll probably want more
until there’s no need for want anymore
~RD


Oh pale the day as darkness creeps upon thy bedsheets
though yonder chamber glistens boldly
beckons ye with dance, drink and merriment.
~RD
