4-29-08: I, Bozo

Another day in a house. It’s getting to feel comfortable and that makes me uncomfortable.

So I went shopping and bought a backpacking stove, a small camera case suitable for packing. and some lightweight food items.

During the shopping trip I noticed that I would forget to lock the car about one out of three times and twice I came back to the car and found my lumbar support lying next to the door. I am a bozo. I am confused. I am nevertheless somehow usually unscathed. Again and again I bumble and put myself at risk and survive. Fine then. I don’t get to be proud of it really because I look a fool but, in fact, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

When I got back to the house I made a simulacrum of my famous shitake vegetable stir fry. Since I didn’t have my rice cooker I looked on the web to find how to make rice and learned a new way that made great fluffy rice. Actually, better than my rice cooker.

Peg and I took a walk through the town of Greer SC and then a ride to look at another house she is considering for her next home. Life unfolds.

I took no photos today but I got around to processing one of the endangered swallow tail kite that I took on April 23 on the river trip. I saw them several times—a group of three. For a raptor kites are quite social, often nesting in villages. They are threatened by the loss of the lowland forest habitat which I have been so enjoying the last weeks.


  • Loving the blog, Pattison... Love to you. The semester is almost over. Thanks for the calls, messages and good wishes... life should calm down a bit here in a couple of weeks!
