I'm Just Saying

Whose woods are these?

Last weekend I pounced on the opportunity of seeing Paul in action with the chain saw, taking down some rotted pines behind our manure pile.

I should explain that when I say ‘our’ manure pile, I mean the horses.

“Please, please,” I begged, “can we go clear the trails now?”

If I could only remember

Not too long ago, Paul and I were chatting with a friend during the after church coffee hour when the subject of cars came up. More specifically, manual transmissions versus automatic. He has a stick shift because he far enjoys the driving experience with it in his sports car, and we have a stick shift because it made our new car a lot cheaper.

I’ve often wished that I had experienced the, for lack of a better word, visions, that friends have had after losing a pet.

What’s so funny?

As my stand up performance in Tryon, NC, looms over the horizon in three weeks, friends of mine have been asking what I’ll be joking about.

“All the animals on your farm?”

Nah, that’s like being subjected to a doting grandmother with endless photos of a cherished but rather ordinary grandchild.

“Paul?”

Coast to coast

After 170,000 miles and a slipping transmission, Paul bravely decided to send his Hyundai over the rainbow bridge. Except it needed a tow truck to get over it and meet all its South Korean relatives on the other side.

“It was the kindest thing you could have done,’ I said, mopping my eyes. “It’s in a better place, now.”

Utter devastation

Most of us, I should think, remain dazed by the rapid succession of unthinkable tragedies that have been hurled in our paths: Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria…one, two, three gut punches of utter devastation from Mother Nature.
