Do you know about Leprechauns? I do. They do not appear just on St. Patrick’s Day. They live in my office all year. As I progress in age, they appear more often. They delight in adding to my confusion when I am in the middle of a conversation with friends or neighbors. They push memories and words behind my eyeteeth so I can’t see what I’m saying. But don’t think that these critters are “old school.” They embrace the Computer Age! They absolutely love the Microsoft 2007 software. They get right in there and put indentations where I don’t want them and once I think I really have the placement of an action nailed, they diddle with my memory so I don’t remember how I did it. I really wish they would come around only on St. Patrick’s Day. I could deal with confusion one day a year!
With the rest of North Ranch dark and asleep at 4 a.m., I took a few minutes to admire a sky filled with magnificent stars surrounding The Big Dipper. Friends Myrna and Red from Traverse City, MI stopped by for an overnight in Feb. They appreciate star-filled nights. Many moons ago our friends and families would park in a circle on their lake lot with our tents, truck campers, and motorhomes. Red would build an amazing campfire between two major logs, sling a grill over it, and keep the coffee pot always at the ready. You can imagine the memories of canoeing, hiking, swimming, and singing around that campfire that we dredged up, laughed, and cried over. Memories are good. God Bless until next time.
