So either I have a cold or else I'm allergic to the cat or the blooming confederate jasmine.
Whatever. I am slightly miserable and the hog dogs are barking their asses off and the light is pouring down and guess what? Larry McMurtry has written a new book!
Here's an interview with him from Mother Jones.
The funny thing is, I have been thinking about Mr. McMurtry intensely the past few days. I find I often do this with beloved authors right before a new book of theirs comes out. Not unlike thinking of a very old friend and then, out of the blue! they call you.
I'm sure you do.
Anyway, I want to go kill those dogs. I wonder how many there are. There may only be two but it sounds like hundreds.
I am drinking my delicious smoothie in my mason jar. That trick worked like a charm. I see there is still some confusion about how to do this. You never turn the jar upside down until the band/blades/gasket are securely screwed on. Also, my friend Ruthie commented on Facebook to allow for expansion within the jar because she has exploded a jar before doing this.
Don't sue me if that happens. Seriously. You have been warned.
Man, this is a good smoothie. I put guava nectar in it along with my fruit and yogurt.
Okay. I don't have anything else to talk about. I have got to go to town and get some things for my trip. Like that suitcase I mentioned yesterday. I have one small suitcase but I need a bigger one. I used one of my mother's the last time I went to Mexico but I exploded it (not unlike an overfilled mason jar) when I was packing to come home and had to get some ribbon to tie it up with from the nice folks at the desk of the Hotel B.
I think I also better get a bell for this cat.
This cat. Who is right now lying beside me on the porch, looking out through the screen at my birds.
I wish I had something profound to say but I don't. My brain is stuffed up.
Oh, let it be.
