I had a dream this morning and there was a woman in it. She was a lush strawberry blonde and wore an emerald green dress that matched her eyes. Her eyes seemed to know everything.

We sat alone in the back of a car and snuggled like a couple of kids. Both of us were younger then we had any right to be. There was a kiss, but I won't say who did it.

When I woke there was a cool breeze and the sky was clear and blue.

I hope I see her again.

We made a date for Wednesday.

I read somewhere…

… it's a sin to eat catsup on hot dogs. I do it anyway.

But I like them with mustard too; also with kraut, chili, or cheese. A Chicago-style dog is not my first choice but I'll eat one if it's right in front of me.
