Is my new Universe ready yet?….


As has been my habit of late, I didn’t get any significant work done on a fresh Pearl yesterday; too busy playing around in my head, at least, when not out ambling about. I did put in about 3 or more miles, so, I’m a bit sore today in the hips & legs; the good part in that is that more walking will fix it…..

Since my sanity seems to hinge upon getting it done, I guess I’ll keep at it…. the alternative is unthinkable, to me…

Once again, I’m stranded here. Nothing in my empty brain, not a damn thing sitting around to stimulate me…. Ooh, ooh, I just remembered!…. I’m a grandpa…
