Friday Mishmash

The Fire

There is little new to report about the fire that destroyed Tina and Anne's home. Tina's last message about is read:

Ok my 3days in the hotel is up at noon today. The red cross cannot help further with shelter, they have referred me to shelters, but my dogs would not be able to come wit me. If anyone would be able to help me pay another night in the hotel, I would really appreciate it. It supposed to be hot today, but I will stay on my car b4 I get rid of my dogs! I need help asap! Thanks. [My phone #is 502-851-1534 if anyone can help]
Anne remains at my apartment. She hasn't much of her property left: One change of clothing, 1 pair of sandals, her guitar, and a few old books. Today my  pension check was deposited,  I again have gasoline, so Anne and I drove into the Highlands area of Louisville where she traded some used books for used books. That, at least, helps take her mind off of the fire.


The body of my electric life-chair is pulling apart; I can't sit in it until I can have it repaired. So I moved this only other comfortable chair in which I can sit to under the living room window where I can sit and read.  Of course, Alex has claimed it as his own. I laid one of my canes across the arms so that I don't inadvertently sit down on the furball.

Video Tour

Anne shot this video tour of me and the apartment:

Two Poems

Lost In Your World  
by Anne Owen

I get lost in your world
More each and every time
I come close or near you
And pretend that you are mine

I get lost in your words
Whenever you decide to speak
The words echo through me
Yet there is more I seek

Wash away the wounded years
With kisses and loving touch
Hold me tighter and draw me near
To show you care that much

 I get lost within your world
Wish I could stay there with you
Tell me every now and again
That you’re lost in my world too

There are Men Too Gentle to Live Among Wolves 
by James Kavanaugh

There are men too gentle to live among wolves
Who prey upon them with IBM eyes
And sell their hearts and guts for martinis at noon.
There are men to gentle for a savage world
Who dream instead of snow and children and Halloween
And wonder if the leaves will change their color soon.
There are men to gentle to live among wolves
Who anoint them for burial with greedy claws
And murder them for a merchant's profit and gain.
There are men to gentle for a corporate world
Who dream instead of Easter eggs and fragrant grass
And pause to hear the distant whistle of a train.
There are men to gentle too live amount wolves
Who devour them with appetite and search
For other men to prey upon and such their childhood dry.
There are men to gentle for an accountant's world
Who dream instead of Easter eggs and fragrant grass
And search for beauty in the mystery of the sky.
There are men to gentle too live among wolves
Who toss them like a lost and wounded dove
Such gentle men are lonely in a merchant's world
Unless they have a gentle one to love.
