Well I've been really depressed. I wake up every morning feeling sad. I miss my mother and I wish she could call me on the phone, "Homie!" she would say.

I find myself watching Youtube videos at home. Colorblind people getting those glasses so they can see colors. That guy in Pennsylvania who drives around picking through garbage for scrap metal and stuff to sell on Ebay or flea markets. 1980s music videos. I don't have to think much while doing so.

I am kept busy by taking care of Ruby, who is a lot of work. She likes to chew on things and has ruined three phone recharge cords and some other things. I sprayed bitter apple stuff on electrical cords to hopefully prevent her from getting electrocuted. She is getting better about not pooping in the house, so at least there is that.

Fifty years ago Grandma posed for a slide photograph in the garden near her house. Grandpa Feiger almost certainly took the picture, standing out close to the driveway. I remember the garden, it was slightly uphill from the chicken coop. In the background are the tall cottonwood trees and the little crab apple tree is on the right.

August 1968.

In the photo you can see corn on the left, gladiolas around Grandma, and snapdragons on the right. I don't know what the yellow and red flowers are.

The house was up on a hill, soil dumped by the retreating glaciers at the end of the Ice Age. They built the house in 1947. It was sold in 1998. I spent a lot of time there.
