big day


Hey bud
whazzup 


Always tome for cats 


Water the bare parts. 
To make the grass grow to the water. 


A nice look but a really invasive plant. 
Virginia Creeper.

waco




Traffic traffic everywhere 






Social distancing with Elaine


I never noticed Coleus before. 
I’m not sure I even knew their name. 


Things that grow in Texas. 
We’re Zone 8a. 
Parts of Dallas are Zone 8B 


Lantana 
Some have yellow flowers 


Esperanza 
But I think it’s a Trumpet Vine. 


Creeping Purple Heart. 


Pride of Barbados. 
I looked this up. 
Texas A&M says it’s a future star 
Of the Texas landscape. 
Food for heat and drought.

the hustle


Dallas is famous for microbursts. 
And small little tornadoes. 
We had 60 mph winds at 3 am. 
And we lost power. 


A romantic breakfast 
With cats by flashlight. 


A few limbs down


The old Container Store
My GF and I once shopped at
Is gone. Sign of the times. 


Keeping true to Dr Bob
I can go up to 40 carbs 
And even occasionally 100 carbs a day
With no gain. 
BUT- I have cravings. 

Starting now- back to Snaking 
And Ketones. 
M problem always was 
The balancing point between the two. 

I don’t like straight up Ketogenic 
Because I don’t have a gallbladder. 
And it’s hard to monitor. 

So IF and Snaking 
Seem to be my best choices. 


Check out mah moustache,
Ladies!  Lol


I look like someone named
Rizzo  or Ricco 
And I’m ready to bust some ass!

I bought the iPhone 11 
And had to have help syncing up. 
Lots of memory. 264 Gigs 
I take so many pictures 
My old phone was crashing 
From lack of space. 

I wonder why I finally have some down time. 
But I’m so busy now, I can’t keep up. 
Probably because all I’ve done
Since January is work and sleep. 
So these errands are backing up.

a good ending



I feel the end of an era coming on. 
I’m done with many things 
That once brought me joy. 
Extreme joy. 

Things like cofeve.
And Facebook 
And talking about carbs. 
And nursing.  
And wine. 
And Hamberder. 
I can’t stand hamburgers. 
And watching TV. 

In fact, not one thing
I once treasured 
And held dear
Means two shits to me.  

This fucking Virus 
And the way it’s being mishandled 
Is making us all a little crazy. 

I’m not depressed. I’m just done. 


I still like these boys. 
We don’t fight 
to get them to eat anymore. 
They actually eat most of the raw food
In 20 minutes. 
Which is how it’s supposed to be. 


I like my garden. 
My little succulents. 


09 July 2020

a good start


Fence before 


Fence after. 
Not perfect. 
But management by objectives. 


Hello Birdie
ByeBye, Mosquitoes!


Already a 90% reduction 
With the Spartan system. 


Before 


After. 
Much to my delight,
It made its own compost! 





I get mad at people
when they make bad decisions. 
Mainly because of projection. 

I need to get back to the boring world
Of full time adulting.

cleaning and straightening


So cold meets hot
Makes rain. 

Fruit stands on country roads. 
I went to meet Elaine 
In the small town of Cleburne -
Half way between us
And where she is staying. 









I think Nurseries have better stock
And the people who work there
Are certainly much more helpful. 


A few babies came home 
with me as well. 
Just a wee few. 
Texas is Zone 8b
And it’s hot till October. 


The beloved Texas State Fair
Has been cancelled this year. 
That’s how Pandemics go. 
Maybe reopen in 2 years. 




Got a gift card to 
Panera Bread for Nurses week. 
That was May. 
Just now using it. 


I must confess. 
I don’t like salad like I once did. 
I just like the dressing. 


Started back on Iodine. 
I took it before. 
With good results. 

I’ve been working hard
On my garden 
And myself. 
Staying off Facebook 
Helps more than anything.
