    It is Stream of Consciousness Saturday, and here comes Linda Hill with a mammoth box. “Hey, Linda.” “John.” “Prompt?” “Duh. I’ll just leave it here on the porch. I doubt it will fit in the door.” “Thanks, Linda. Would you look at this? I better open it and see what we’ve got. I […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Snow People from The Blizzard of 2021

Yes, we had a blizzard here in Austin. We all managed to survive long enough to clean out the grocery and liquor stores. What was left in the wake of the devastation were several snow people. So what better thing to do than to climb on the bus and go gawk at them. Yay. We […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Trash Day

Since it is a slow day here in Lakeway, I decided we would look at some of the locals’ recycling habits. This will be a short trip so we will want to spend a lot of time eating and drinking. I think most of you are familiar with the tour bus. First impressions can be […]

“Hey, Twiggy. Why so, glum? It’s Christmas Eve.” “I’m still worried about biting that light on the tree.” “Why worry? Mom took care of you. She has made it impossible for you to reach the tree.” “That’s true. Do you think Santa will know? About the bulb, I mean.” “So even if he does know. […]

Wednesday Story Day – AKA – Hump Day
