The Last Time I Saw Him
Last weekend when I took Walt to the airport to catch his
plane to So. California to attend granddaughter Lacie's 5th birthday party.
(I stayed home to dog sit since our dog sitter has a newborn baby at the
Probably Lacie. We bought her a chef outfit for her American
Girl doll, to go along with the MasterChef theme of her birthday party.
My colleague, Jeff, a critic for the Sacramento paper and
his Capital Public Radio show, agreed to review a show for me for the Davis
paper, since I have a conflict with another show I have to be reviewing at
the same time. (this is the weekend from hell for all four of us reviewers!)
I drop things so often. I think the last thing I
dropped was the keys to my mother's apartment. I can't remember the
last thing I broke, though.
I borrowed Walt's pen last night to make notes in the
program for a play we were seeing.
At Tom & Laurel's wedding in 2003, I think.
7) When were you last nervous?
Last weekend. I had to ride to Sacramento with two
guys, since Walt was out of town. On a good day under good
circumstances I am always nervous on the freeway, but the driver this time
drove in the fast lane (I never drive in the fast lane), 80 mph (I rarely go
over 65 mph), and was tailgating. The only way I could keep from
freaking out was by keeping my eyes closed for the whole trip.
I don't do a lot of DIY, but I do enjoy making pocket
letters. The last one I made was showing autumn colors. I always
take pictures of pocket letters when I finish them, but I forgot to take one
of this page. (It was not one of my better ones).
I'm not a believer in horoscopes and I only read it for laughs, and then rarely. I can't rememberthe last time, but sometimes they are so out there that you have to laugh.
I met my friend Kathy for our monthly lunch. I think we exploded to each other for a good 15 minutes about Donald Trump before we even ordered our lunch, and we sat there long after our lunch was finished, still talking. I so look forward to these lunches! It is nice to have someone who shares so many of my feelings, politcal and otherwise,to talk with!
I went to Atria afterwards, but my mother was asleep in bed and the housekeeper was cleaning her bathroom, so I wrote her a note and left. I don't know if she will (a) find the note, or (b) understand it. I know she won't remember it tomorrow. But she must be ready for clean underwear, so I need to go and pick up her laundry tomorrow.
In the evening, we went to see “Gospel According to First Squad,”written by Tom Burmester, a guy I have known since he was a little kid (he's now pushing 50 and I guess I should stop thinking of him as a kid!). I wrote a feature article about him and his War Cycle, which was published in the paper today. Very powerful play that takes the audience into the reality of battle and the men who fight it every day.
