I said, “Come. I have beds.”

A friend plowed my drive earlier today. I said I’d mail a him a check.

“If you want, ” he said.

      I need to change my bio to reflect I’ve “written” a novel, and often feel as though I’m living in one. I’ll mail my friend a check and worry constantly about the young woman who called, yesterday, but has failed to materialize.
      One of my fondest memories is being reminded by someone who grew up here that whenever he ran away from home, he went to my Grandmother’s house. She called his mom, let her know he was there, fed him lunch, gave him little chores to do for pin money and sent him home for dinner.
