I am alone now, feel alone, my friends are only friends when I can do something for THEM! I don't ask for help and none is volunteered to me. I live in a house full of people who could not care less if I am here or not. I am now the oldest person in my family, both of my parents are gone now. I try to love and be loving but to no avail, I am not loved. There is no room in this world for those who can't keep up, there is really no room for the suffering artist, Van Gogh and Poe would not have lasted long in the world.

My house adventure continues, my dryer died so now I will be buying and new washer and dryer. The washer works fine but the new ones work better and are cheaper to operate. I got my whole place all cleaned up and ready for winter. I did have to take a pickup truck load to the dump; modern landfill centers have many recycle stops so most of the stuff went to some of the many recycle stations.

I have a few more ideas! Today is printmaking day, got to

I have been busy this summer working on my house, new deck, guest bathroom, roof, sky lights and outside paint. Also been working on my fence, it is old and weather has not been kind to the wood fence. I have been using the old deck boards on the fence, recycle where you can, many of the deck boards have always been under cover of roof and is in really good shape, so it would be a crime to waste the good wood!
