BEHIND THE CABIN

Took the day off yesterday.
Chores to do
down at the cabin.

Fix the plumbing leaks,
from the winter freeze.
Replacing the propane tanks,
behind the cabin.

Haven't walked back there,
2 maybe 3 years.

Wow.

The moss covered rock wall
was a beautiful surprise.

INDUSTRIAL RELICS
FROM AN OLDER ST. LOUIS

Down on the northern riverfront
there's a graveyard of 100-year-old
power and warehouse buildings,
a St. Louis that once was.

Vacant, but still standing.
Testament to another century
of smoke stacks and riverboats.
Warehouse walls of giant graffiti.

Mostly unused, but still standing.
Waiting to be discovered
and repurposed for
something new.

REQUIEM
FOR A
CHOCOLATE LAB

Those most amazing
chocolate lab retriever
I've ever met.

Porter!

He was so protective,
so loving, so sweet.

He became a "regular"
at morning coffee,
especially with young Maya.

He died suddenly, and
devastated everyone who
knew him.

And so . . .
we celebrated this
lovely dog's life
and spirit.
On Earth Day, 2018.

ROGUE 68

Coinciding with Shake 38
and a performance of Macbeth
downstairs in a great old building
on O'Fallon Street in St. Louis,
the Rogue Underground Dining Society
held its 68th gourmet dining event
last evening.

The first 24 responders
to an invitation announcement
earned a spot at Sunday evening's
7-course affair.

Good job dedicated chefs
and support staff.

And in honor of Macbeth
King of Scotland,
a toast of fine Islay whiskey
to salute the evening.
