I had to go to the town to the left to the foot doc... to pick up my inserts at long last. Yay!
I had time to kill...
I have lived here off and for about 24 years total time. In all that time I have never before been to the museum. So I went today. Most of it was the usual stuff. But this painting above and these items below are very interesting to me.
They are from the Japanese Internment Camps. I don't know enough about them to do them justice with a narrative. Here are a couple of sites you can peruse if you wish to learn more.
When I first moved up here we landed in a house across the street from a Japanese man who lived in an internment camp. Very nice elderly gentleman. It used to amaze me that anyone could do that to such a nice human being. It still does.
He had a Weimaraner (dog) named Molly. She was very protective of me. In fact she would not allow my husband to get out of the car when he got home from work, unless I came outside and told her that it was okay.
Gosh I liked that dog. ;)
After the foot doc it was back home again for ho-hum... house work and a bit of reading and blogging.
Back in the car at 4:00 for the usual Monday trip into town for all of StbX's obligations.
A nice twist was that Boo, my oldest, was waiting for us at the Court House.So instead of sitting there reading in the heat alone, I had a nice visit with him before he had to go to work.
Then we were off to the Bear's house for a BBQ.
Bear and I had to shop for food, but managed to escape child-free. Meanwhile Mikey P. fired up the grill and began the meat fest.
They are taking off to go owl pelleting in the morning. They will be gone a week. They sell them on line.
I got to see that boy before they left. He was very entertaining.
Mikey P and cousin J were in the recording studio and they were searching through some older music.Link 80 to be exact. Little Mikey decided that he and I had to head bang. Oh yeah... head banging and dancing... that's our specialty!
We all ate way too much. (I'm doing a half fast day tomorrow to make up for it and an extra hour of walking.) Urp!
When I got home, I visited with crazy4coens for a time until a knock on my door... at nearly 11:00 at night... interrupted.
It was my brain damaged friend that I have mentioned before... D. He's a very s -l- o- w t- a- l- k- e- r and I have trouble with that. It makes me fall asleep. Especially when it's late. I feel terrible when I am obviously nodding out on him. He had the good grace to excuse himself this time.
All in all it was a good day. I got some things done that needed to be done. Squeaky has been on a house cleaning jag... so my house is all shiny bright. Today I will drive up and bring Max home for the night to visit. That always makes me happy.
Oh and I ran into one of my "minions" as StbX calls my ex-students. He's got a steelhead for me and will fillet it today. He's going to give me a call when it's ready and promises to keep me in fish all season. Very cool beans! I'm thinking of steelhead in jerk sauce tonight. mmmmm
