Can I Get A Witness?

I've spent half the day making a crockpot full of soup which, of course, is now large enough in volume to feed all of Lloyd and let's not talk about the loaf of bread in the oven.
I'm like the queen of rock soup. I can start with one almost completely picked chicken carcass and end up with something that's either a disaster or a thing of beauty, depending on your perspective.

So Bruce Springsteen is live on Facebook right now. Looks like he's really doing a lot of promotion for this book he's written. I've preordered it, of course, and will be getting it in a few days along with a new white cotton nightgown, both from Amazon.
Modern Life.
It's a beautiful thing.
So- what's the deal with Bruce? He looks like he's been working out in the fields for the past decade. It doesn't look like a fake tan. He doesn't look like Donald Trump. Maybe he's been riding his motorcycle a lot and the whole rest of his body is as white as a dumpling. If so, he obviously doesn't wear a helmet.

I wonder if I'll love his book as much as I love Keith Richards' autobiography?
I seriously have no idea.
I've loved Bruce for longer in a true-love sort of way. Ever since I saw him play in Jacksonville in 1979. Maybe? He was still a skinny little guy at that point, jumping up on speakers and launching himself into the audience which he still does. I fell in love big time that night and his music has been my rod and my staff when I needed it throughout my life since then and I wonder if the words in his book will kindle an even deeper love.
We shall see.

All will be revealed.

It looks like Maurice may keep her eyeball. I hope so. Man, that's been a bad one. I love that damn cat. She's mean and she's sometimes cruel and she's bloodied me and Mr. Moon both countless times but she chose us and we can't help but love her. She's a cat and as such, cannot be judged by human standards and I will not.

Oh, y'all. Life is so tenuous and we need to take whatever comfort and love we can and I say that after having just gotten off the phone with a friend who is facing a whole mess of decisions and treatments and worries and cares.

Tomorrow is August's birthday and this time last year, Jessie was just starting into labor.

I try so hard to live the simplest life and I do, but in reality, there is no simple to any of it. And if someone says there is, they're lying out their ass.

Love...Ms. Moon

  2. She got in another fight with Jack who just about ripped her eye socket out. I've been treating it with antibiotic ointment and although it still looks funky, I think she will be okay eventually.

  3. I don't know what it wrong with me today. I keep trying to comment but nothing is making sense. I did have a comment about making soup. I always end up making way, way too much. I do like freezing it though.

    I don't like saying it because it has said by every person over a certain age but where does the time go? Shouldn't August be only 3 months old?

  4. Yes. Three months old. At the most.

  5. I try very hard to live a simple life...I find it impossible. I'm sure my anxiety doesn't help matters. But, how can life be simple when there are 10,000 kinds of toothpaste to choose from!
    I spent at least an hour on the phone the other day trying to get a simple answer out of our crappy health insurance provider. By the time I got off the phone I was in panic mode. The phone is not my friend.
    "There is no simple to any of it".....how right you are.
    I'm happy to hear Maurice's eye is better...poor girl.
    Happy birthday tomorrow to that darling August...he is the cutest thing !!!

    1. Yes. Even if your brand is Colgate, you have fifteen different types of that to choose from! It's horrible!
      The phone is not my friend either. Thank god for texting. And insurance companies are nobody's friend.

  10. No, life is never simple, you are right there. There's always stuff going on that we don't know about.

    1. Yep. The math makes it all quite clear. Whole lotta shaking going on between Christmas and New Year's.

  12. Did I tell you about my mother's deep disappointment with Bruce the first time she saw him interviewed? This poet bard with such intensity and musical expression was a stumbling, stuttering quiet guy on tv, and she felt so let down. I wish she'd lived longer, to see the articulate, emotionally aware and expressive leader he's grown into. I have such respect for him. He's still sexy af, too.

    Stone Soup is my favourite story :) Rock Soup sound more like something else to do with Bruce, to me!

    I hope Maurice's eye is ok. Ugh. Foolish cat! Come ON, Maurice!

    1. Stone soup, rock soup. Whatever.
      Yes. I think your mother would probably approve of Bruce now.

    2. I think mum would approve too. There are only 2 famous men who I think are hot in older age. Both Americans Both musicians. One is Bruce And the other is the guy who plays Deacon Claybourne in Nashville Chip Esten Have you watched Nashville Glorious! Maggi

  13. Did you see the tweet from Springsteen about Trump, calling him an idiot and then an asshole, or something like that? Awesome.

    I've got to read back and catch up with the story about Maurice's eye, but I'm glad it will be OK!
