Mowing the lawn

by bigjacbigjacbigjac

I mowed the lawn yesterday,
for the first time this year.

I hung a load of laundry on the backyard clothesline.

I daydream as I do these things.

Some of yesterday's daydreams,

According to Munich Re,
a big insurance company that insures the regular insurance companies,
there is a trend of more property damage claims
in the last forty years,
in the area where I live,
in the middle of North America.

I live in Wichita, Kansas.

I have pictures to show you,
pictures of storm damage.

The storm was early Friday morning,
3rd of April,
2015.

The pictures are below the divider doodle.

If an oil family has a place to go,
as if the oil will run out soon,
does that help convince you
that the oil will run out soon?

My wife and I went to a funeral Saturday;
one of her cousins died.

My oldest sister is dying of cancer in Houston,
far away from us here in Wichita, Kansas.

I see her on Facebook;
she looks like a smiling skeleton.

Last Wednesday was the seventh anniversary
of the death
of my first wife Pam.

A special welcome
to anyone new to The Grieving Room.

We meet every Monday evening.

Whether your loss is recent,
or many years ago;
whether you've lost a person,
or a pet;
or even if the person you're "mourning" is still alive,
("pre-grief" can be a very lonely and confusing time),
you can come to this diary
and say
whatever you need to say.

Unlike a private journal,
here,
you know:
your words are read by people who share your values
and have been through their own hell.

There's no need to pretty it up
or tone it down.  

It just is.

.....and then eat pie.

Here is the link to all the previous The Grieving Room diaries:

I've felt a big disaster was coming.

In recent years,
I've discovered the nature of that disaster.

I don't know about your home town,
but here in Wichita,
I've been buying 91 octane gasoline
for $2 a gallon.

I think the 87 octane is $1.75.

And,
I was in a Walmart in Salina,
and the ultra cheapo brand of vitamin D milk was marked down, to
$1.58 for a gallon.

Then,
I just saw this diary on the rec list:

This article doesn't come out and say it (the article is about global deflation), but historically commodity prices crash on a global level for only one reason - lack of demand.
   That means the global economy is very quickly coming to a stop.

Here is another source,
a man who has been explaining for some years,
that oil is critical to America,
and the gradual end of oil
might mean the sudden end of America,
as we know it:

The Mayans R us. One year, they were cavorting bloodthirstily atop their garish painted pyramids and a generation later the jungle was stealing back over the temple steps and the population was a tenth of its former size. The same thing is going to happen to us, except there will be a hell of a lot more worthless, toxic debris left on the landscape.

Let me explain,
in very simple terms,
what I think will happen
within the next few decades.

Below the divider doodle.
