“Dreams are necessary to life.”

The rain has finally stopped. It’s been two days, and it stopped only about a half hour ago. Yesterday I went to the dump and was the only car there. It was pouring. Everyone else was too smart to get soaken wet dumping trash. Even Gracie wouldn’t stick her head out the window. I didn’t grocery shop but picked up a few things to tide me over. I was far too wet and cold after the dump to go anywhere else.

I think the rain has dampened my mood. It’s a blah feeling a bit of sun could cure. Today I need to buy dog food and make a stop at the post office, neither of which will in any way brighten my day.

Last night I was strolling through the internet with no set address in mind. I found tree houses which I’d love in my yard. It would be my summer-house. I pictured a rope walk from the deck to my tree house which would be one big room with walls of windows and screen. I’d have a bed there, a bookcase and a table and chairs. That would be enough. Gracie and I would sleep among the trees all night long and listen to the night birds and to the peepers from the small pond at the end of the street.

I also found yurts, and I imagined mine among the trees in the backyard. That would be my winter escape. The walls would be covered in heavy, colorful rugs and cloth and all the furniture would be comfy with lots of cushions. There would be a wood stove right in the middle. The few windows would be glass to keep the cold at bay. The lights would shine among the trees. I’d be cozy and warm.

I am content with my lot in life and seldom ask for much; however, I do sometimes dream I’ve won the lottery. I never buy tickets as I’m not lucky that way, but I still dream. I’d have that tree house, maybe even a yurt tree house, and I’d travel some more. That would be more than enough.

    The little silver (American) car sped through the intersection of Adams and Silverbell around 6.50 am this morning with the HD blasting out “I only want to be with you”
    If I had closed my eyes (not terribly wise) I could have seen Dusty with her beehive strolling on to the set of RSG reminding everyone that she was the greatest female singer of all time.
    So as I said to my buddy im6 this morning, why does KTCC ignore Mary Isobel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien? Hell KTCC didnt even recognise her Birthday on April 16th.

      My Dear Hedley,

      KTCC has not ignore her! Dusty has played here more than a couple of times. I am and have always been a Dusty fan. Do you hear that? That’s me humming You Don’t Have to Say You Love me!

      Just for you two, I will play Dusty again this weekend!

      I didn’t know it was her birthday or I’d have sent balloons aloft in celebration!

        I don’t have a clue as to what he is talking about. At least with the soccer stuff I can sort of make heads or tails of his post 🙂

      • Hedley Says:

        Oohhh, a Dusty weekend AND Tottenham at home to Fulham, should be a good one. Maggie has secured a card and gift for Sunday, so we are all set.
        Maybe Dusty gets added to the KTCC Birthday List

        Zoey and Me had an excellent post a few days ago about missing Ralph. It certainly reminded me about the loss associated with the departure of Richard….he was always cool

    The rain have been pouring down all day here and my dogs didn’t complain when I refused to take an afternoon walk 🙂

    I don’t have any trees big enough to have a tree house but a yurt wouldn’t be a bad thing. But perhaps I would choose a Kåta, our native peoples yurt. Looks very much like a ti-pi to be honest. I would like to have the summer kåta, even if the winter ones keep the cold outside without problems.

    I think I pay much the same for them to fetch my garbage as You have to pay for getting it to the dump Yourself. I thought it would be much more expensive over here to be honest.

    Have a great day!
    Christer.

      Christer,
      We actually got a bit of sun today. It was a beautiful sight!

      You can build a treehouse off the ground among the trees. My trees aren’t sturdy enough either but it could be a stilt-like structure. Yurts look much bigger and rounder than tepees to me.

      I don’t know how much it would cost to have my garbage collected. The towns don’t do it-only private companies, and they don’t recycle.

  3. Zoey & Me Says:

    The tree house sounds perfect. I want one. Maybe if I hit the lottery. We play it three times a week here.

    • katry Says:

      Z&Me,
      I guess I’ll have to start buying lottery tickets though my luck is notoriously bad.

      That tree house would be so neat!!

  4. Bob Says:

    I never had a desire for a treehouse because I am a klutz and would fall out of it and break my neck. I am not a fan of high places. I don’t like looking down from a building or a tree and seeing all those converging lines that give me the perspective distance to the ground.

    Today and yesterday were cooler but cloudy. The rain has missed us again.

    • katry Says:

      Bob,
      I too am a klutz. but I would have a safety rope on each side so I could never fall to the ground/

      I don’t mind high places. I have more of a tendance to fall off and down steps so a rope walkway sounds safer to me for me.

      We got sun this afternoon!

    My Dear Hedley,
    I had Richard’s e-mail and sent several, none of which were answered. I didn’t have his daughter’s address or I would have sent her an e-mail. He was so very cool, and I miss him a whole lot!

    Ralph just chose to drop out I think.

    • Hedley Says:

      Im6 is a God, alerted me to Spiritualized live on NPR tonight…audio and video. They have promised a podcast tomorrow, worth a download and play!

      • katry Says:

        My Dear Hedley,
        You will hear no objections from me about Im6 being a God. He is one of my cherished friends. I went to NPR but did not find the concert. URL please!

      • im6 Says:

        You should see me part waters!

  6. Hedley Says:

    im6, cool party trick but the water to wine thing is even cooler

    • katry Says:

      My Dear Hedley,
      I’m with you on the best parlor trick being the water to wine and the loaves and fishes would work well with the wine.

  7. Hedley Says:

    Kat, will be looking for the link to the Spiritualized podcast later today. NPR ran it live last night from the 9.30 club in DC. The Spiritualized tour has a standard setlist so you will have a chance to enjoy without leaving Gracie and the sofa !
