I was sitting here with a Pulitzer prize winning entry about ‘The Whammy’ when the computer went black and all electrical noise ceased last night. We had a rare power outage. We sat around for awhile enjoying the quietness. Reece and Stella came out with the stroller and Stella invited us for a walk.
“Where are we going?”
“To the Horse,” she said.
At the top of our little hill, about a block, is a Shetland pony, fed well but unkempt. She loves to see it. But he had already ‘gone to bed.’
Returning home she said good night. Sherry and I sat in the swing and talked. Sometimes power failures are a blessing.
(I have just in the last minute lost three paragraphs??? I know how to go back on this system, I hold Cntrl and hit ‘z’, but I do not know how to return forward. Anyone out there help in that area?)
Anyway back to last evening. By 10PM still not poser, sooooo being self contained, pressing the GEN button on the dash we have electric in less than a minute. We ran it for about 3 hours and caught up on the computers. I also found out my great entry was gone. So it it lands on your computer please forward it back to me.
I started this entry about Best intentions. Things I have done with the best of intentions, but they turned out sour or wrong. Now I cannot think of one entry of mine, but my buddy Sonny, had one that stands out.
He and I were a lot alike. Tools were very important. Sonny bought a sand blaster. Boy was that fun. Rusty objects were soon clean as a whistle. Stubborn nuts were cleaned and loosened. Still looking for something to sand blast he thought of the Iron pots and pans used by his wife Collette. He was very proud showing them to me. Man that is nice, mama gonna love you.
Lemme tell you, me & Sonny ‘weren’t no’ cooks. He coulda used Rick’s advice about flavored dog biscuits cause that boy was in the dog house a LONG TIME, y’ain’t supposed to mess with mama’s ‘seasoned’ iron skillets.
But I have to admit, they looked like NEW!
Sometimes the best of intentions, go terribly wrong.
