Packrat Purge

the packrat purge is complete and several grocery bags are now filled with random paraphrenalia that i deemed unneccessary to store for another year. today i also washed my car and bought a picture album to house my collegiate photographs. my room is now livable for the next few weeks.

we need water terribly. we’ve had no rain in over a month and everything is either dead or dying. the gras crumbles to dust when it is stepped on, the ground is cracked, there insect count is even low. there is no stir in the air. much of my town’s livelihood is dependent on the success of the crop. if we get shat on this year the already depressed economic straits of our community will only be compounded. i’m reading Double Indemnity and I expect to complete it this evening.

Happy 1st Anniversary to Brian and Alice Stone!
