R.I.P. Uncle Bruce

My Uncle Bruce passed away last week. He was the last of my uncles. My mom and I were by his side and held his hand when his heart stopped.

My mother, his caregiver and I have felt a great feeling of loss. He had such a strong will and such a strong presence that it's like the world is a little dimmer with his passing.

This Saturday, I will be reading a elegy that I wrote for my uncle at a small gathering in his home. It's for the neighbors and friends he had in Modesto. The last place he made his home.

June Bug Attack

Took our Pomeranian out and then checked on my plants. Somethings been eating them and I've been checking nearly every evening to see if I can spot the culprit. 

I did seem to waken something that rose in my flashlight beam and came right at me. It hit my throat several times until I knocked it away. 

It didn't sting me at least, but it gave me a bit of a scare. 

My hubby thinks it was a June bug. 

Hours later I can still feel the hits on my throat.
