Chillin’


Hi – just hacking around (oops, not a good word on the internet is it?). That’s what we used to say in the olden days when I was in high school (somewhere between the Stone Age and the Renaissance). The picture at left is the northwest corner of my desk at home – I say “my” desk, but it’s something John brought from home to his first “bachelor pad” after he left home to live on his own. It actually belonged to a priest named Avery Range – a friend of John’s parents. Father Range actually spent weekends with John’s family and added a room onto their house for just that purpose. I imagine that’s what happens to those who take a vow of celibacy as they start to grow older and family members die off. I’m glad John’s family was there for him. Sadly, Father Range died of a heart attack a short time before John’s father did the same thing, except that John’s dad left behind a fairly young wife and nine (yes nine) children. So believe it or not, although this desk has been through the wars, it’s a fine old thing, and I try to treat it with respect. although I never knew Father Range, or John’s father for that matter, I did know his mother and she certainly deserved my respect if not my agreement in everything;). My use of this desk also speaks of the generosity of spirit that is my husband.
One more day of court this week – why not round it out to all five, LOL! Of course nothing’s easy, but then that’s why they pay me the big bucks (!)
Well, I’m a bit tired – not much sleep last night. again. I do want to make it to kwar prax, so I’m going to sit on the couch, chill and do me some knitting.

Wife of one, mother of six, gram of five (so far) and lawyer for many young persons, I love to sing, read, knit and walk. My politics are somewhat left of Marx and I want to hear what you think, too!
