  • Sunday morning while the kids-are-swimming-with-their-Dad, and the oldest boy has left for college where he happily reports his girlfriend's aunt has FOUND them a nice mattress for their little place, crepe batter is IN the fridge, it is not TOO hot, and the metal is cool, and the little girl will go to camp tomorrow where she will sing and the big girl will be able to watch T.V. on a big screen now that her brother is gone AND she now has a big screen Mac as well, and the little boy will hang out with me at the pond playing frisbee and we may or may not find some solace in and around who we are and who we are not.
