ON THE BACK BURNER

December 18

We received the strangest "official"letter yesterday. IT said that we were obligated by law to fill out this census. It was an agricultural census. I know that there are farms around us, that there are cows very near, because I hear them some early mornings when I take Cricket out. But I live in Bird Bay , in a villa. Not wanting to go to jail, even the one that Martha Stewart went to would be inconvenient right now. The questions that I just marked "no" to, were things like : Did you transfer your cattle to another person? Did you make any transactions relating to your ranch or farm?". If you said "no", skip to question 21. Crazy, but I filled it out and put it back in the mailbox for the mailman to pick up. I always wanted to live in the country.Now I do and I didn't even know that.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
