Waning Moon
Pluto Retrograde
Cloudy and pleasant

Up and out for my run by 5. No skeezy people this morning, probably due to the police car parked in the municipal lot across from the building. On my way back, I stopped by the car to say hi and thanks for being there, since there were some real shady people out here this early. The cop says, “Yeah, I know. I read your blog.” Too funny! So thank you, this town’s finest, for being that and looking out for me!

Yesterday was scary, Elsa-wise. She seemed to be getting worse again, after improving the night before. I went back to the pharmacy and got a ParaClenz I’d had my eye on the day before. I also had to go grocery shopping, and I fully expected her to be gone by the time I got back. But, she wasn’t, I gave her the Clenz, and within an hour, she was eating again. Over the course of the day, I got a whole big jar of her favorite organic chicken w/brown rice baby food into her, which is more than she’s eaten over the past few days. And she’s started following us around, getting into stuff again. I started adding the Candida cleanse back into the baby food in the evening, and she continued to eat. This morning, she ate a little bit of regular cat food (her choice), and I gave her the digestive enzyme, so we’ll see where we go from here. I’m going to try to give her some more baby food every hour or so.

For the past few days, workmen have been on the roof. I don’t know what they’re doing, but yesterday they were flinging windows and metal vent covers and poles and wooden frames off the roof. Supposedly, it went into the dumpster, but half the time, they missed. If I had put my air conditioner in last week, it would have been knocked out by the debris. It is terrifying to see a window fall past the place and hear it smash onto the pavement, with glass and dust scattering everywhere. The landlord, of course, ignored my questions. It starts again today, I call the City — although this new mayor and City Council will let anyone do anything they want, if they pay for it. Typical Republicans. If something comes smashing through the window, one of us or the cat will be killed. Can you imagine how much force a large object picks up when it’s tossed off a fourth-floor building? With NO safeguards?

I took photos.

On top of that, I barely got any sleep, because they’re renovating the train station across the street at night. And, last night, all the machinery they used was in reverse — beeping all night long. With this new mayor and City Council in place, the quality of both life and safety in this town has gone down to ZERO.

Got very little writing done. Hopefully, I’ll have a better day today, writing-wise, and Elsa will continue slow steps to improvement.



  1. Wow, how’d the cops know it was you? That might freak me more than the freaky guy!

    Fingers still crossed for Elsa.

    • I grew up in this town. I went to school with most of the cops. They’ve known me as a writer since grammar school.

  2. I think that the cop read it and responded is great. That’s someone who cares about his community. Kudos to him.

    Sorry Elsa is still struggling. I’d hoped by now she’d be recovering. Sometimes that’s a very slow process.

    I wonder how long the noise and the danger would last if one of your council members lived in that building? What if someone gets hurt – is that the only thing these people notice?

  3. Yay for the cops! I’m glad one was watching out for you. I’m sorry to hear Elsa is struggling to recover so much. I hope she feels better soon.
    Sending good thoughts your way.

  4. Now that’s what I call an impressive local police service. Bravo to the boys and girls in blue!!

    • Hahahaha..
      I agree with you 🙂

  5. Phew, that first sentence wore me out. So funny to think of the cops reading your blog. Way to go!

    Sending good thoughts for you and Elsa. I hope she starts improving very, very soon.
