Dear Tuesday #twtblog Slicers, no guarantee, but I'm back, at least for this week. I've been writing ~ copious email, 750words, online conversations by comment on blogs and social media ~ but neither blogging nor willing to give up on it. Yuma Colorado catch-up is about a sliced as my life gets these days. By way of explaining the opening aside: apparently my Manor named Facebook page confuses some Yuma Housing Authority residents, so I am still reminding them about my Yuma project speaking for anyone but myself. Explaining the confusion and context would probably make a good post.
I started blogging "this week at the Manor" here almost two months ago but moved the feature to Facebook ~ too much content duplication to make a good post, especially with so few of them.
Thomas Wayne, friend from University of Louisiana graduate school, English department, arrived for a visit just after midnight Saturday and left this morning around 6 am. We visited, talked, watched Dostoevsky's The Idiot in Russian (with subtitles) and drove around exploring the area ~ including a tri-state Colorado/Nebraska/Kansa excursion (easy to manage in this corner of the state). Rock Creek Recreation Area in Nebraska was a high point.
On TW's last day in Colorado, we visited Chuck in Denver, drove back for dinner with Pilar and Duane last night ~ hitting heavy rain both times. Thomas, Meriel, Erin, Mitsy and Ana are the only people who visited me in Mountainair from out of state. Thomas Wayne is the first to visit me here.
Today is second Tuesday, monthly Potluck day. I went but ponied up the $2 extra for not bringing a dish. Today is also my grandson's birthday. He's having a pool party at the Yuma pool, just a few blocks and easy walking from here. My blogging goal here is to post before leaving, although I may add to the post later.
Now it's time to go....
