It had been a disappointing summer (1982) for May S... weather wise. "But yesterday was one of 2 or 3 perfect summer days we have had..." I can't complain! We have had a good collection of summer days.
Emily Dickenson wrote of the red squirrel: "But never met this fellow Attended or alone, Without a tighter breathing And zero at the bone." What would she say if she'd encountered a bear? Of the blue heron Mary O wrote: "The preacher made his difficult landing, his skirts up around his knees." When another heron arrived MO continued, "They greeted each other, rumpling their gowns for an instant, and then smoothing them." Oh, can you just see them?
Cedar and i went to get Marcellus and we spent time in both Deer river's play parks. It was fun for them to have someone young enough to play with and fun for me to sit and watch.
Wallis called and asked me to go to her place and sit with her as she was expecting an unpleasant visit. He did not show up but I'm concerned that he might prefer to surprise her when she is alone. It's one of those unpleasant domestic situations. The police have been supportive and ready to assist if needed.
