we are also walking in the bell county/temple

we recycle as much as we can here at the country n
we have to haul it 10 miles to a recycle place nearby

at the habitat houses i work at im always looking for
things to grab and recycle out of the dumpster
ive even been seen climbing up inside to recover
cardboard metal and other objects

the metal i haul to a trailer an elderly man leaves out
in front of his house
when it gets full he hauls it to the metal recycling place
i guess to supplement his income

(he also is across the street from a country store called
andice country store which has those good ole hamburgers
like you use to get when you went to a drive in
no mcdonalds for me)

yesterday i scooped up a partial load of concrete pieces
that were broken up from the sidewalk in front of the
house we are working on now

this concrete pieces will be used to line my several hundred
feet of garden and landscape beds
its permanent wont breakdown will be there still when the earth
is destroyed one day

it also is used in my crushed granite walkways because
when turned upside down it looks like our native limestone

cost for me zero and
it adds to the rustic look of our place


whoa was i dreamy last night
aricept (donnepezil) started that dream
as it induces vivid dreams and then the aricept ended
it before i was able to finish

last night i was in high school
well i was an adult but they let me go back to high school
because they needed a quarterback for the high school team
(if you live in texas you know all about high school quarterback

you see growing up i was always the quarterback
all the way from the fifth grade until the end of my 9th grade
when we moved to a small town that only had basketball
i moved from quarterback to forward then

this high school had good receivers but needed a quarterback
who could throw to them
that was me

i also during the dream was a doctor and was treating some
patients who had add and was having problems with school

you know in dreams you can make the story anyway you want

the neighbors were hunting during this time and ran this big ole
buck with the biggest rack ive ever seen
we all just let him go and no one shot at him at all

the only color in the film was these brilliant red and orange birds
one was a beautiful bright parakeet

as i was tying all these unrelated things together in my dream
so they would all make sense
my aricept side effects took over
i got this gosh awful leg cramp
you know the kind that pulls you up out of bed
and makes you want to cry when it wont go away

reality meets unreality

  1. You dreamed a modern version of "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight." I guess it would be entitled "Sir Dewayne and the orange birds."

  2. Sounds like Dr. Tim Leary made an appearance in your dreams last night..What's in those vegetables!?
