It is 11:52 AM late Tuesday morning here in west Michigan. It is another cold, damp, gray day. It is predicted to snow this week. We need to call our snow removable man to make sure he will clear our driveway during the upcoming snow storm. We need to get in and out of our driveway this Winter. I hate to be stuck inside this house all winter. There is a possibility of snowing being so deep that our house will be invisible from the street.

This morning I got up around 6:15 AM. Carol had gotten up this morning around 4 o’clock AM. So I got up wandered into our living room and dozed. When I woke up I walked slowly to our kitchen and made a pot of oatmeal for breakfast. Carol and I ate our oatmeal and then left to go grocery shopping and then take old clothes to a thrift store in Zeeland, Michigan. These old clothes had belonged to Carol’s elderly friend Pam who is getting rid of stuff because she believes she is going to die soon. Pam is 94 years old and wants to end this life and go to Planet Life.

At this thrift store where we dropped off old clothes I found these three used books to ADD to our library-

‘The House of Getty’ biography by Russell Miller

‘The King In The Tree’ 3 novellas by Steven Millhauser

‘Isak Dinesen: The Life of a Storyteller’ biography by Judith Thurman

We were home from our travels around 11:15 AM today. Carol works the next two nights, so she will soon be going to bed for the day to sleep. I plan to brush my teeth and read some more of the novel, ‘The Invented Part’ by Rodrigo Fresan Translated From The Spanish By Will Vanderhyden this afternoon. The novel ‘The Invented Part’ is the first volume of a trilogy. Yesterday I received in our mail the second volume of this trilogy titled, ‘The Dreamed Part’ by Rodrigo Fresan Translated From The Spanish By Will Vanderhyden. I also have been reading by Rodrigo Fresen his novel, ‘The Bottom of the Sky’ Translated from the Spanish by Will Vanderhyden.

Well, I will close since it is now 12:07 PM in a cold dark Death Flow. There is no way of escape. Trapped.

Bob Dylan - See That My Grave Is Kept Clean



Bob Dylan - See That My Grave Is Kept Clean

Well, there's one kind-a favor I'll ask of you
Well, there's one kind-a favor I'll ask of you
There's just one kind favor I'll ask of you
You can see that my grave is kept clean

And there's two white horses following me
And there's two white horses following me
I got two white horses following me
Waiting on my burying ground

Did you ever hear that coughin' sound?
Did you ever hear that coughin' sound?
Did you ever hear that coughin' sound?
Means another poor boy is underground

Did you ever hear them church bells tone?
Have you ever hear that church bells tone?
Did you ever hear them church bells tone?
Means another poor boy is dead and gone

And my heart stopped beating and my hands turned cold
And my heart stopped beating and my hands turned cold
And my heart stopped beating and my hands turned cold
Now I believe what the Bible told

There's just one last favor I'll ask of you
And there's one last favor I'll ask of you
There's just one last favor I'll ask of you
See that my grave is kept clean
