Memorable Day weekend

Up and down weather, becoming the standard around here; on Saturday, pleasant 50th birthday celebration for one of our bandmates, a woman who has a demanding day job but dreams of being a fine finish carpenter. They had it on a beach in West Seattle, and by late afternoon we had donned our winter jackets to defend ourselves against the cold north wind belying the sunshine. Her partner made the lemon meringue birthday pies, and grilled all the meats. All ate well.
The rest of the days sped by, culminating in a family effort to stem the overgrowth of our yard by the weeds, the only plants succeeding in this bizarre climactic shuffle that's been persisting. The veggies are languishing, except for the potatoes, which, if we were subsistence folks, would have to carry us through the next winter. Mother Earth preserve us...

Mother Earth is expressing her displeasure with her treatment at the hands of criminals with fat wallets and big cars. Potatoes are better than no potatoes. That's a stunningly brilliant observation? Probably not. I hope Mother Earth comes to recognize, soon, that you don't deserve her retribution any more than she deserves Big Oil.
