If I could stop time.

I wanted to stop it today. Why? Because it was raining cats and dogs for most of the day. I love heavy rain and we needed it. The GG has been sick yet again with a cold-type virus. He went to work yesterday (yes it was a Saturday) and he looked like death warmed over when he came home. He isn’t back at 100% today but he did wake up without a fever this morning.

Today. First, I walked over to the Plum Market this morning, just when it opened. I walked down my block and there, big as life, was the Bread and Puppet bus. I had no idea what that was all about but I did get a photooo. I continued on to the Plum and there were NO vee-hickles on N. Maple. I wanted to stop time at this point. But time went on.

I drove the GG (no fever today but still not 100%) out along the river and into the county back roads. I wanted to stop time out on those back roads and slowly drive along in the country forever. Alas, we had to get back into reality. And so, a sloggy day at home and then a party at Vicki’s house. Easter eggs and chocolate and food and booze and friends old and new and…

G’night. Work tomorrow. Onward.

    I’m glad that GG is doing OK and that the weekend went well. Reality is not what it’s cracked up to be! Enjoy work; I’m on vacation. (for a week) Woot.

    It’s raining cats and dogs here too. But I want it to stop because I need to spend the next few hours out doors. What is it about soccer and rain. I don’t recall they have to happen at the same time. Tell GG to feel better. I will send warm thoughts his way.

    These folks hung out for a while in and around Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont–one of my Almas Mater, or Alma Maters, or whatever the heck you’d say. A natural confluence of edgy performance, the arts, and politics, even then. Also, just the first place where I saw big ol’ larger-than-life puppets.
