It’s been a trying day, frosted with more bad news.  In spite of the difficulties, I noticed that the Japanese maple tree in the yard of David’s parents’ house is dripping with red seed pods, like a pink petticoat peeking out from under the maroon leaves.

Advice from David’s mother today.  “Oh, don’t get old, it’s really irritating.”

David’s mother is laughing and just brought me a photo of Rihanna from the current issue of People magazine — she has hot pink boots with lime green high heels on, matching her heavily-beaded two-piece bathing suit, and fishnet stockings.  “Just in case you were looking for something to wear this summer,” she said, still laughing.
