Grateful for: safe travel to Alabama … the riot of wind and rain that came with today’s brief thunderstorm … the sight of the dogs chasing squirrels out of the backyard at breakneck speed … Clyde’s cooking.

Remember: My shock at the fact that a local buffet place in my brother’s home town charges just $4.95 for three fat pieces of fried catfish … the rising/falling droning of the compressor pump in Mom’s oxygenator … the way the sunlight made everything look over-exposed today.
