I think this is Purple Deadnettle. Sounds like the name of a comic book villain.
Here’s little Riley with one of his favorite toys. He loves to play fetch. Sometimes it’s a challenge to get the ball away from him so you can throw it. He might growl at you because he’s a tough guy.
Beauty never dies. How can it?
Yesterday the hubby (Ernie) and I had a post-Christmas lunch with his sister and her husband. We went to Culver’s which is new to Bloomington. The franchise is owned by former NBA player, John Laskowski. He was there sweeping the floor and doing other food service activities. Ernie recognized him. They talked for a minute too.
After lunch, we decided to go to a coffee shop on the square called The Inkwell.
It’s a nice spacious place with a hipster charm. It’s the type of establishment where people like me go to write a novel.
There was some art on the walls. I should have asked about it.
They make a ’homemade’ pop tart at The Inkwell. I had the cinnamon and brown sugar variety and a cafe mocha to drink. The pop tart was tasty, but I would have preferred it warmed up a bit.
I don’t go to enough places like this. I really should get out more often.
It was a nice day to be out and about.
You took it for granted, didn’t you?
Well, now it’s gone.
Why won’t you move on?
Get a new thing.
Be different. Be still. Be silent.
Go inside and don’t look out.
Look in not out.
