It started with an early phone call from Room 203; she wanted to visit and it’s only 9 a.m. Still in her pajamas with coffee, cheese and crackers, as well as her cat Riley, I let her in. This is the first time Riley is visiting my place and he is very scarred. Have you ever heard scared cat cry? It’s blood curling cry. Maurice and Lucy were scared and went into hiding. So did Riley. By the time they left is was close to noon. Next, I went next door, Room 307 to ask her to make me real coffee. I supplied her with a Starbucks coffee grind. Life is good with real coffee. I took some pictures of her potted plants. It is now 1 pm and time to visit Mother. She’s resting just down the road. I picked some narcissus, fern, sage, rosemary and yellow flowering branches from my garden to bring to Mother. The road where Mother is resting is downhill. Going downhill sure beats uphill. I’ll worry about that later. It’s a busy day mostly for Chinese family. They sure know how to party with their dearly departed. I laid a few flowers for this young man, this is the first time I’ve heard of bullying, year 2000, the same year Mother died. Mother’s site sure looks pretty with the bouquet I placed on her gravesite. Then I visited the pond with a lonesome drake, a couple of turtles and plenty of fishes. See that building on top, I live across that. See that 45 degree road, that’s the hill to get back home which is not a problem if only I am 13 years younger. I came across with a worm. Then, I took refuge underneath a tree and scared the living daylight out of me, an evil thing lurking above. Sakura is in full bloom and then life is a bowl of ???. But look, I found a $10 gift certificate, my lucky day. Finally, I’m home. That’s the yellow flowering bush. The baby artichokes are waiting for me to cook. By the look of the size of the artichoke, even though I bought two dozens, I will still be hungry. Thank goodness, Room 307 came over for tea with Polish salad. The salad was my dinner. As for the artichokes, it ended up in the garbage. Life is grand.
