I guess some of you have been wondering if I’m still alive. It’s been nine months since my last blog. If you follow Michelle at Silk Purse Productions you know I’m around…or…you may think I’m dead and Michelle is cashing my pension checks, making up stories about me, or us, as she goes. No. I’m cashing the pension checks. But she is making up stories.

I do not check the mail box every time I pass it! That would be ridiculous. I limit my peeks into the mail box to 15 each day. And I’m looking for flyers, not mail. My checks are deposited directly into my bank account and the bills arrive on line. But flyers, mmm, ♥♥flyers♥♥…often include money off coupons from fast food restaurants and can come anytime. (I am, if you remember, a junk food aficionado.) And I love to peruse flyers, just to see what I want but can’t afford. I even read cereal boxes − I can often afford cereal. But you know what ticks me off? There’s not a french fry truck in the Durham region that sends out money-off coupons!

Seriously, my head has been in another place these last nine or so months. I think I’m just not liking being 18 but stuck in a 66-year-old body. But we’re nearing the end. I’ll be 67 in August. And I have a question − at what age will they start calling me senile instead of eccentric? (Friends labeled me as eccentric when I was in my 30’s. Family just referred to me as crazy.)

I’ve been doing a lot of reading, including the four 700+ page text books it took to pass the exams and get an Ontario real estate sales rep’s license; Carrie Rubin’s Seneca Scourge, which I enjoyed immenselyand dozens of other mysteries, action thrillers and fantasy fiction tales about wizards, dragons and such. My one wish? That I could have read the text books on my Kindle. It’s a whole lot lighter than they were.

Anyway, the thoroughbred horse racing season has just begun, so there is light. I’ve begged asked Michelle not to plant poison ivy in the mail box. No answer yet. And I will get back to writing on a regular basis.

The Blurred Line

It's the thin line between reality and fantasy. It's the thin line between sanity and madness. It's the crazy things that make us think, laugh and scream in the dark.
