Tanner sign- Doug poem & guitar


Sunday 02- 84 to 58

I did my stretches, yoga, core trainer, took the dogs for a mile jog, and punched the heavybag.

I cleaned up the yard some and did the dreaded poop patrol; most of the poop was buried in the sand by the high winds we’ve had the past week. I had to hunt them down and dig them up.

Just finished doing my Federal and State Taxes... I am glad that's over and done with! I felt like stuffing all the forms and that incomprehensible 8962 into a envelope and sending it off to the IRS with a note: You made up all this complicated jargon and rules, here you go figure it out and let me know how much I owe.


Monday 03- 88 to 51 and windy again

I did my stretches.


Tuesday 04- 77 to 54

I did my stretches, exercises with the 20lb dumbbells, took the dogs for a mile jog, and punched the heavybag for a spell.

FedEx delivered my 20 watt solar panel I opened it up and found it was shattered.


Wednesday 05- 80 to 50

I did my stretches and took the dogs for a nice walk morning and evening walk.

I emailed the business that sold me the broken solar panel. Alex said that he will replace my broken 20 watt panel with a 30 watt panel and will ship it right away.


Thursday 06- 87 to 52

I did my stretches and took the doggies for a mile and a half jog.

Late in the evening I had just starting writing chapter 12 of "Upon Ashen Roads" when I got distracted by our missile strike against Syria... strange how I am writing fiction of that area right now... I'll try and continue chapter 12 on Friday night....

Saturday 15- 81 to 58

I stopped taking the antihistamine pills last night. The pills make me very tired and lazy the next day. I think they may be worse than the allergy symptoms that I experience. I  did my stretches, yoga, took the dogs for a mile jog, and punched the heavybag for a long spell.

I finally cleaned the kitchen counter and stove very good. I have neglected most cleaning in the house lately.

I am still feeling like crap because of my allergies. Don’t really feel like doing anything, plus my Doctor said two visits ago that I shouldn’t lift any weights for awhile because of my pain in my wrist, so I cut weightlifting down to maybe two or three times a week. I hope it starts getting better soon.

I cooked up a pot of rice, gathered the cookies I bought and headed down to the community center for our monthly potluck. There were about twenty hungry denizens of the desert there waiting to dig into the feast set before them on the table. There was Yvonne’s yummy banana pudding; Dorothy's delicious Mexican casserole, Cal’s healthy fruit platter; someone made a chocolate cake that magically disappeared; Chris and Mary’s fried chicken and pea salad; cookies from Joyce and John Lee, who journeyed from Santa Ana to enjoy the wonders of our desert. We have no music or entertainment of any sort except the pleasant chattering of desert folks yammering on and on about this and that and other important things pertaining to their lives. It’s a wondrous feeling to be among them.

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


The cord that binds has been tied off and cut, but forever remains a link to a mother’s heart.
~RD


At this moment in history the news media thrives on opinions of reactionaries, not on a sense for fairness or any impartial coherent reporting. For good or bad we alter the world by just being alive and trying to rationalize and internalize the information we acquire. How we change the future is up to us by the seeds we sow. Plant the seed of knowledge and watch us grow. Plant the seeds of deception to watch the world wither and die.
~RD



I like dogs because they have no political ambitions. Cats on the other hand I'm not so sure of...
~RD


Create and enjoy life so others may enjoy it with you...

~RD


Life is not to be wasted on mundane and irrelevant demands put upon you by others. Treat life as a wondrous journey not a racetrack to the end. Be awed, be creative, be inspired and inspire others, ask questions and question everything, love and be loved along the way to journey's end.

~RD



Come live in the desert with me and enjoy the beauty, silence, and grandeur of endless horizons. It's simply awesome to behold. Then ponder as you gaze out into the desert’s sparse habitat how so much can survive with so little. Did you know the kangaroo rat survives without drinking water?

~RD
