Memories stuck between the pages of my mind

4 Comments

When I went places with my grandfather, he always stopped on the way back and got us both a strawberry malt. He seemed to know where all the best malt places were. I have a difficult time finding a malt shop these days.

His wife always fed me bananas. Anytime I eat a banana she comes to mind. She would make banana sandwiches. They were banana and Mayo or banana and creamy peanut butter. I recently made one for myself. It was good.

While grocery shopping I saw a bag of mini GooGoo Clusters. My grandfather on my dad’s side liked GooGoo Clusters. He liked Red Skeleton and Laurence Welk. He drove Studebaker cars until he could not buy them any longer. He was a very hard working man with big gnarly, arthritic hands. He always smelled like Ben Gay.

QOTD: “I see that the life of this place is always emerging beyond expectation or prediction or typicality, that it is unique, given to the world minute by minute, only once, never to be repeated. And this is when I see that this life is a miracle, absolutely worth having, absolutely worth saving.
We are alive within mystery, by miracle.”

~ Wendell Berry, “Life is a Miracle: An Essay Against Modern Superstition”

I love this quote. I think change helps keeps me alive. Staying mentally and physically flexible is a good thing.

QOTD: “Irregularity and unpredictability are important features of health. On the other hand, decreased variability and accentuated periodicities are associated with disease. Healthy systems don’t want homeostasis. They want chaos.”— John R. Van Eenwyk, “The Chaotic Dynamics of Everyday Life”

Always creating.
Always adventures.
Always new.
Always different.

Getting cozy with social contradictions helps you get cozier with the ultimate nondual truth.” ~ Carolyn Elliot

It’s helpful to embrace the paradoxes.

February 1 I left South Montgomery and headed towards Atmore to hang out in the woods.

While getting prepped to leave, the inverter Freedom 458 had an attacked of humming. I panicked, makes several calls, messed with the inverter and then it stopped humming. My current plan is to roll to Atmore, order a replacement, have it shipped here and install it when I return to Montgomery. Keep your fingers crossed.

The night before and I’m in bed at 6 pm.

I bought fuel on the way. I have a 60 gallon tank.

I was running on empty.
I have a nice, peaceful new yard. I’m looking forward to the campfires and bicycle riding as soon as the rain slacks up.
My first visitor. I believe it is an assassin beetle.

QOTD: Many raindrops, trickles, streams, creeks, and rivers contribute to the pool of cosmic consciousness. Each tributary has its own eddies, whirlpools, stagnant backwaters, calm pools and rushing rapids. Where they converge the merging is not always easy. At times there is resistance, turbulence as each tries to have its separate way.

2021, What a Year

2 Comments

This is a long read about some of the things that happened in my life in 2021. There are probably spelling and grammatical errors. I have read it several times. Seems I always find another.

In January, Jesse and I were living in Gulf Shores Alabama. Doc’s RV park is the place. Walmart delivered the groceries. We rode our bicycles. We did not really hang out with other people. Covid kept us apart.

In February Jesse and I moved to Magnolia Branch. We enjoyed the woods and the water. Christy came to visit for a bit. Later in the month Jeremy came to pick up Jesse. I ended the month living alone.

I spend March at Montgomery South RV Park. They are close to Alabama Safari Park and I visited there often. Jesse visited for a while and I went to Hill House to visit them. March is Dr Cox appointment month. I did that and stayed with Belle a few days.

April comes and goes. I’m still in South Montgomery and I’m still visiting the safari park. There were lots of spring babies in the safari park. The Watusi cattle calves were so small. Cute.

In May I visited Belle and Elliot. I had an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon about my knee. They gave me a shot in the knee and that straightened things out. It’s still good today.

June was a busy month. I moved from South Montgomery RV Park to a scuzzy place in Prattville. I got my oil changed, my main drive built replaced and visited Spectre in Millbrook Alabama. Later that month I moved back to Paradise Point Marina.

The high point of July was probably the fireworks show in Homewood AL. Belle and Elliot took me and we had a great time. Jesse came for a long visit.

Jesse was so much fun to have around during August. He expanded my cooking abilities. I started frying a few things for him and that eventually lead to an air fryer and cooking with a Blackstone griddle.

His visit lasted into September. It was an excellent birthday month that included a week long trip to Panama City FL.

Bizarro Month was outstanding. I was still in Paradise. There was lots of morning fog. I like taking fog photos.

In November I returned to South Montgomery Rv Park and more vists to the Alabama Safari Park. Good times. I remained in that rv park until the new year.

The high point of December was a road trip to the Smoky Mountains with my son and his family. Those were great days. The last day of 2021 was the day the road trip ended back at WHQ. There are blog post here about the road trip.

Road Trip Day 15

Leave a comment

The weather outside is frightful: Rain and wind; Flashing lights from the heavens; Enormous booming. Not my idea of good driving weather. For today I’ll stay in the safe haven of the Belle home and enjoy the warmth, dryness, love, happiness and yummy foods.

QOTD: Listen up all you bad-ass tantric saints “You can stop taking your pain personally…
… you can relate to it instead as “THE pain” rather than “MY pain” and make a heroic bodhisattva decision to gladly feel & transmute THE pain on behalf of everyone else.” ~ Carolyn Elliott
