May Afternoon1

Pleasant afternoon
A dog barks in the next block:
Is he chasing cats?

Mother's Day

Facebook Status Update

I'm sleepless in Las Vegas,
but this isn't my usual
bout of insomnia.

I'm falling asleep at the keyboard;
Thank God,
I no longer drive
or have a car.

Two weeks without
a decent night's sleep,
and I don't see
it getting any better.

I'll call the leasing
company on Monday,
without any hope they'll
do anything--
there are still items
that needed fixing
when we moved in.

Two weeks
of waking up in then
middle of the night
with stinging
and itching
arms and body.

We've sprayed
the furniture
and the rug,
but spray doesn't work;
at least not to exterminate
the problem.

Scattered across the blue sky
Condensation trials

Facebook Status Update

I finally got a good night's sleep without bedbug biting. The bedbugs didn't make an appearance until sometime in April, so we didn't bring them with us. I suspect they were in the carpet. The problem has been turned into every one it can be turned into.

We drug out the old recliner, and set it in front of the apartment. We brought in something that I can sleep in, it isn't a recliner, but it does lean back. It will work until I can afford to get a new or used recliner.

I also took out a pillow. It was one of the magnetic pillows that was popular several years ago. It had a removable cover, which could be dry cleaned. I've had the pillow for years, never dry cleaned or washed the cover. Since I wasn't going to dry clean or wash the cover, I took the pillow out with the recliner.

This morning I woke up and found out someone had taken the pillow. The pillow had bedbugs in it.
