ON THE BACK BURNER

Nov. 21

When I walk Dixie and go through the woods next to my son’s house, take a left at the road and go about 1/2 block, up a hill.....I come to a house .I had to stop  my description here because it isn’t a house. It is a hoarders property. I think that there is a house behind his stuff, but I am not sure. Just doing a quick inventory while Dixie sniffs around, I can see a kayak, fencing,fence posts, 2 cars,garden wagons,garbage cans( no garbage) ,many mystery things, wheelbarrows, multiple wheelbarrows.  And other stuff too numerous to mention. One of the cars I would love  to have. An old red Range Rover looking vehicle. It just happened that my son and I were at a favorite junk yard called” Waste not, Want not” and this hoarder guy came in. He and my son know each other and I was introduced as,” this is my Mom”.Long story short, I want one of his wheelbarrows. It is a painted rusty red colored wagon that would be perfect in my garden with flowers blooming in it. I must add that this guy does not live on that awful looking property and he has a city job. He just collects stuff, a lot of useless looking stuff. My idea is to leave a note on one of those 2 cars asking if he would let me have or buy that wheelbarrow.My son doesn’t think he will part with it because one of the things about a hoarder, is that they think they will have a use for whatever it is. We’ll see.

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?
