dear ms b-howling


our upstairs bedroom is called the tree house
it has open windows to the south west and north
the house is now surrounded by trees
when you look out into the distance
it feels like you are up in the trees

now at night since we have a prevailing south wind
we if the weather is warm enough will leave open the
windows in our tree house
letting in the nice breeze
which is great for sleeping
like you are at the beach

it also lets in the nighttime noises
the hoot hoot of the night owls
the far away mooing of the cows
occasional sounds of horses neighing
in the early morning you can hear the gobble gobble
of the turkeys as they ascend up from the river
sometimes in a misty scene like from a movie
if its real quiet you can hear way way off in the sky
the faint sound of a jet flying over on the way to
somewhere else

the other night
as happens sometimes
there are other sounds not as happy
those of the coyotes as they rep up their frenzy
usually after some more animal
thats the way nature is
that night they were real loud
it almost sounds like they are on our front porch

as they got louder and louder
our two dogs began to howl
louder and louder and louder
like a concert i guess

now ms b
i take this old medicine called aricept (donepezil)
youll understand why one day
it interferes greatly with my sleep
first it chops off a couple of hours a night off my sleep
thats why youll see me take a noontime nap every day
to compensate
ms b
it also makes me have these real vivid dreams
usually not disturbing
here recently all kind of things have been trying to
break in and get me at night

why last night i fell asleep in the chair
i woke up howling
fighting the ficus leaves from the tree that we had moved
for some work on the ac heater
it was touching my forehead
those folks were trying to get me again
i sure beat up those ficus leaves howling the whole time

but the other night
i fell asleep on the couch
seems to be happening a lot lately
there were these things that were breaking into the house
trying to get me

now i know that if i howl like a wolf they will run away
why ive scared off zombies games of throne folks thugs robbers
doing this
so i started to howl and got louder and louder and louder
until it woke me up
when i woke up all those bad guys were gone
so i went to bed and went back to sleep
see it worked

now the next day my poor wife she your gma
told me about the coyotes ahowling real loud
then the dogs began ahowling real loud
then they stopped
then i began ahowling real real loud
then the dogs began ahowling again louder than when the
coyotes were ahowling
she thought the dogs were ahowling because they were
worried about me

the end result was
the coyotes shut up
as did our dogs
i went to bed and got a better night sleep
my wife she your gma
she looked real tired the next morning

Image result for fox and the hound
so this all made me think of the fox and the hound
audio we use to play for you dad and your uncle
when they were little kids
that little hound would howl and howl
they both loved it
ill read it to you day
howl for you
