nothing but fantasy

It is now in the flow 11:06 AM Tuesday morning. I am back from dropping off my wife at the Gerald Ford Airport (Grand Rapids Airport). Carol should be in the air now flying to Denver. After I dropped off my dear sweet wife I drove over to Schuler Books to look at their used books and found nothing but crap. I left Schuler's and headed back home. So has gone by my morning thus far. I do not know what I will do today to kill time. Right now I am drinking a cup of coffee and wondering if I should turn on our central air system before it gets hot.

Brother Tim called last night and said he might stop by today.

I have been mainly reading these days a book titled, "Anti-Oedipus Capitalism and Schizophrenia" by Gilles Deleuze abd Felix Guattari. I read this book last night before going to bed at 9:30 PM. I do not have understand anything I have read in this book. I read it because I like reading words even though words make no sense/comprehension. Nothing makes sense to me in the first place. I live by faith.

When I was at Schuler's Bookstore this morning I noticed I had a lot of the used books that were for sale. I also noticed that Schuler's charges way too much money for their used books! I have found thousands of used books over the years for almost nothing money wise. I saw used books this morning that I paid fifty cents for going for seven dollars at Schuler's! Also it is a lot more cheaper buying new books from Amazon than at a retail/chain bookstore. I am from now only going to get my books from thrift stores or Amazon.

In reality today everything cost way too much money. It amazes me sometimes the prices we pay for stuff like food and clothes. Think about how money we spend on cars.

Well, I suppose I will close to sit and wait it out. Existence keeps zooming by!

"[6] But godliness with contentment is great gain.
[7] For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
[8] And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
[9] But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition." First Timothy 6:6-9

It is 86 degrees outside right now. The last gasp of hot weather for this Summer 2015. Earlier I closed the house and turned on our central air system so it is 73 degrees in the tomb.

Tomorrow morning Beth and Andy are going to the hospital to have their second child. Carol will be there to watch Louisa Mae while Beth and Andy are at the hospital. If the baby is a boy they are going to name him Jack and if it is a girl Margaret. I wonder if Carol and I's third grandchild will be a baby boy. We all will soon know.

I have been reading since I last wrote, "Forbidden Territory And Realms Of Strife" a memoir by Juan Goytisolo. I also left the house to go to a local grocery store to get food items. After getting a few food items I went to a Goodwill Thrift store and found two used books (paid $1.72 for these two used books) to add to our library-

"Aiding And Abetting" a novel by Muriel Sparks

"Dangerous Muse: The Life of Lady Caroline Blackwood" a biography by Nancy Schoenberger (Lady Caroline Blackwood was married to the poet Robert Lowell.)

I received from Amazon this afternoon a book I had ordered titled, "Memoirs Of My Nervous Illness" (New York Review Books Classic) by Daniel Paul Schreber.

Not much else to report. I have to keep reminding myself Carol is not coming home till September 17, 2015. I am alone till she comes back to Holland Michigan to take up her life once again with me and our dog Rudy. I keep waiting for my wife to appear but there is nothing/no appearance.

Brother Tim never showed up this afternoon. I suppose he got busy doing something else this afternoon.

I will close to drift into the darkness. We are all headed for blackness/night.

This evening I took Rudy for a walk around our neighborhood. I took with me a camera to take pictures. I took pictures of this old tree covered with vines because I always find it amazing the sight of these vines covering this old tree.
