I have no memory of anything happening this week so here is a picture of a tree stump.
There have been a few people in my life who have been content as the northern star. People who have been there from my earliest memories. My mom, my dad, my grandma, and my grandpa. My Grandpa past in November 2017. Monday afternoon Grandma went to be with him.
I remember summer spent with Grandma and Grandpa on their farm. I remember big plates of eggs and delicious Grandma burgers. I remember her care for animals of any kinds. I remember her quick wit. I remember a love that never wavered.
I could write a lot more but i’m not up to it now.
One of the saddest songs I’ve ever heard, and I have no idea what the lyrics mean.
Throughout the summer I’d hear a sound. I usually only noticed it later at night. If I was sitting around watching tv or something, I’d hear something that sounded like a neighbor slamming a car door. It would happen two or three times then there might be a couple of minute gap then it would happen again.
My main theory was someone slamming a car door. Perhaps they were unloading groceries or coming back from a trip. But every time I looked I didn’t see anybody near any of the cars. My other theory was a noise from the propane factory.
It kept happening this morning and because I didn’t have any windows open I finally figured out what was causing the noise. At the beginning of summer and I put out a porch swing that was in the garage. I had put it up near the house so it wouldn’t catch the wind. Well if the wind came just right it caused the swing to move enough to bang against the side of the house. With the window open it sounded like it was coming from somewhere else. I decided it was time to bring the swing back inside.
Things got cold and rainy fast. In one day, I went from having the windows open to turning on the heat. No more warm days till spring.
I was driving to my friend to bring him something he needed. Near the end of a tunnel I noticed that a front wheel had been knocked off my car. It had fallen into the caves beneath the tunnel. I stopped the car and got out. I had to pick the car up and lift it over the broken end of the tunnel. I then jumped down into the caves to try and get my wheel back.
The caves where full of storage things. I then found that my mom had planted a bunch of plants down there. They weren’t growing that well because the only sunlight was coming through cracks in the roof. That’s when I remember that a monster lived in the caves. Last time I had been in them I had a weapon to fight the monster but this time I didn’t. I saw the monster scooting around the caves looking for me. I managed to sneak out but without my wheel.
As soon as I got outside I came across three guys riding bicycles who agreed to help me get the wheel. None of them had flashlight so I turned on my phones light. Before we could climb down a lady came by with my wheel that she had gotten out of the caves.
I wandered down into the town nearby. It had a bunch of people with super power living in it. I ran into another friend who was a superhero. I was trying to get McDonalds to use the leader of his good guy superhero league as the new spokesman. I got worried that my friend had used his super power to intimidate the CEO of McDonalds. It turns out he just meant the local McDonalds. My superhero friend had used to work there and still knew the manager.
Satisfied, I started walking out of the room but bumped the burger wrapper of a guy sitting at a table. He got all angry with me. I was in trouble. This guy was a super villain assassin with special stab people in the back powers.
I realized I had to get out of their and ran out into the street and down an alley. I stepped into a rave to try and hide among the people there. The place was packed and we were shoulder to shoulder moving about to the music. I kept looking for the assassin when in the crown a few cops walked by me. I thought the cops could take care of the assassin. But it turned out they were boy scouts and i realized they were in danger from the assassin.
I woke up. It was 1:30 am and somebody in the propane factory down the hill was banging on something.
