When my wife reuses Ziploc bags
A little bird told me they’re filming Captain Marvel down the street from the office. I checked it out at lunch. They’re definitely filming something big: trailers and trucks and crew and cops for blocks in every direction. I saw no sign of fame or costumes.

When you lose your mind at the garden plant sale and buy 260% of what you were planning you need to make a few adjustments to the plan. My Sunday morning was spent adding plants to the big planter box and scrambling to find and fill six more large pots. The City was giving away free trees yesterday and when we went to get one they loaded us with two shade trees and three grape plants. We still need to find locations for all of those, but that’s work for the next few evenings. I’m going to sink into my sofa now.

We went to Tomatomania! today with the intention of buying five plants: two bell pepper and three tomato. The mania overcame us and we bought one extra pepper plant and seven extra tomato plants. We’ll need to find a place to put everything now, but there was no way we were passing up on German Johnson and Viagra varieties of tomatoes.
I remember specifically thinking that Public Enemy resonated with me. Even though I’m not black there were messages that I understood. Even though I never had trouble with the police or being disenfranchised or any true hardship, Chuck D and I saw eye to eye.

My mother-in-law packed her bags and left home for Hollywood when she was a teenager. To earn money when she got here she worked as an extra in a bunch of beach party movies and Quinn Martin television productions. It’s something she’s neither fond of nor reminiscent about and she’s forgotten specific works in which she appears.
Potatoes, grape vine, snap peas, strawberries, lettuce, orange blossoms, and clover sprouts: the garden is off to a fine start.
