Another pleasant  day, turning cool on toward evening.  Woke with my nasal passages closed and my lungs hurting.    Son Guy feeling  better today. He did the laundry, bustled in and out a good deal.    The computer is ailing, and there is nothing much I can do...

This morning, shortly after I started work, there was a phone call.  At first, I thought that it was the Lady with the Dog, but it turned out to be an old friend of Son Guy.  She phoned to say that, after many years, she had found her missing son.  Guy was asleep, but later in the...

Quite  warm for the Bay Area.      Son Guy slept all day.      I worked as best I could on the computer, but it has suddenly become troubled.  If the troubles do not clear up, I'm going to seek help tomorrow.     Had as nice Email from Bill H.,...

A breezy, sunny Spring day.    Son Jason came over just as I was leaving to keep my appointment with Dr. Bugatto.  Son Guy guided him to some important information he wanted.    Money is tight, but the  dregs of my credit cards got me to Kaiser Medical Building and...

Rain advancing on the Bay Area all day, from the north and from the south.  Really coming down now.     I was up quite early this morning, dealing with Son Guy's SSI matter, and preparing for Granddaughter Laversa's visit.  The SSI matter was easily resolved once I found a...

Another warm day, at least in the apartment.   I managed to unclutter my computer this morning, and worked until well into the afternoon.   Guy urged upon me that I must call SSI about his grant.  The deadline is tomorrow.   Around 2:30 p.m., Son Jason made an appearance,...

Another uncomfortable night.  Trouble breathing.    Got up about 9:30 a.m., worked until 1 p.m.  Bud E. Pup was here all night and most of the day.  When he's asleep, he's like a little furry white doll.  His leg seems better, but he complains more when awake.  ...

Warm day, turning cooler toward evening as the fog came in.    Son Guy went to the Emergency Room last night with his sore ribs.  The Lady of the Dog did not appear to reclaim Bud E. until some time after 3 o'clock, and Guy was not back until seven this morning, and so I didn't get...

Getting started late:  A rather warm day for the Bay Area -- 74* in Downtown San Francisco.    Woke quite dopey.    Worked for a while, but my computer has been taken over by AT&T again, and all the things I usually depend upon are either gone or inconveniently placed...

A beautifully warm day in the Bay Area. Son Guy's ribs still sore.  Maybe he'll go into the hospital to have them checked out.  Bud E. Pup was here briefly.  Mama is moving.     I felt very good today, and though my accomplishments for the day were meagre, I have a positive...

Up quite early and worked quietly until after 1 p.m.  Son Guy had an uneasy night, and it looks as if he probably should head off to SF General Hospital to have those ribs looked at.    Took my nap, but was interrupted by a call from the lady with the dog.  I didn't know it at...

Late last night, Son Guy went out for a smoke and ran into a former schoolmate from several decades ago.  The guy went to the school, perhaps was in one of my classes.  He brought him back to the apartment.  They had some champagne and talked all night long.  No sooner than he...

Son Guy, nursing sore ribs from his fall in the bathtub yesterday, sallied forth to replenish his medicines.  I worked from a little after nine in the morning to about one-thirty in the afternoon.  There is a lot of activity at Wellesnet, which I have not altogether caught up with.  ...

Bustled around a bit today in the apartment.  Son Guy was well enough to go out searching for forms.  [My printer is jammed.] Unfortunately, he took an ugly tumble in the shower, but it seems only bruised his ribs.  He was back in good time, and I set to work.  Though I had very...

Up early for a workaday Sunday.  Things were going well.  My leg was in good shape.  I finished my Emails.  Guy was still asleep.  I lay down for a nap a little after noon -- and slept for nearly four hours. Doodled a little more on the computer, then settled down to Sunday...
