The Odd Wife

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night...

Our landlady's condition has deteriorated and she is now on a respirator. At 77 years old, this is obviously not good news. It looks like the end is near...

We're going to dinner tonight with our neighbor, Ed. Ed is a gruff, middle-aged New York building inspector that we have lived beside for the past 5 years. He's paranoid, grouchy, tempermental and has a heart of gold. We love him and he loves us. We have no idea what makes this relationship work, but it does. During the hurricanes of last summer when we were without power for 7 days he obtained a much coveted generator and ran power cords to our house to give us a bit of relief too. We'll miss him most of all.

It's time to move. I figure we have about 30-60 days to get our act together. We're not really ready to buy, but renting with a large dog will be very hard. Decisions, decisions...

I'm really looking forward to the three-day weekend to do some thinking and planning.

Thunder and lightening are all around, so I better say "Sayonara!" for now.
