On December 12, 2006, I made a post about the death of Dempsey Young. […]

Is Anything Done?

Wednesday, and nothing is done. Well, perhaps I’m wrong. The fridge is clean. Papa and I started some sweet pickles last night, they’re in brine in a crock in the basement. Lex is packed, kind of, I have to finish this morning. I got my eyes checked, and needed new glasses. They’ll be here soon. […]
