An Inch of Time is Worth a Foot of Jade.

This will be a short post today. I thought we had more time, and I thought I’d be able to see her in person, one day, when this pandemic was over and her lung cancer was in remission, but, no. My best friend died on Monday and I still can’t think straight. I was driving back from the grocery store yesterday and I suddenly couldn’t remember which streets to take, so I just kept driving around the block and eventually I came across a landmark that looked familiar and I found my way home. The rest of life looks the same way, as if everything around me is suddenly foreign and “off”. It will take some time to get the lay of this new land I now live in.

But Renee hated Trump with every cell in her body, so this is for you, darling:



This is how Trump got the virus from the first of his aides who tested positive, Hope Hicks:

















I hope that we can circle back to the tape recordings made by Melanoma’s ex-freind, in which she is heard cursing out journalists and Christmas, right?






Then there was that fly that sat on Mike Pence’s head for two minutes during the Vice Presidential debate on Wednesday:


On the handle it says: Truth Over Flies.









Have a great weekend, Dear Ones. Go have a drink with your best friend and celebrate being on Earth.

And of course, when you raise your glass to make a toast, let’s all say it together: Fuck Trump.

    I’m sincerely sorry for your loss. My friend of the last 45 years passed away from MS about 3 weeks ago. It sucks. Things will be hard for a while, but we’ll get thru this. I keep telling myself everything will be easier when the orange menace is out of office. Tonight, I will drink a toast in honor of both Renee and LisaAnn.
    Hugs across the miles.
    Fuck Trump!

    Dear Vivian, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. A best friend is a precious treasure. That she was your best friend means that she must have been a truly extraordinary and wonderful person. Rest In Peace Renee. I am currently rereading Le Road Trip and loving it. The night blooming Cereus bloomed again last week, and there are three new blossom buds on it today!

    So sorry you lost your best friend Renee this week, that just makes this year even worse. Sorry for your friends too Carol & Charlotte. Take care everyone.

  4. Oh, Vivian. I am so terribly sorry. I’m not sure what is much more difficult than the passing of a best friend. It is like losing a huge chunk of your heart. Biggest hugs.
