TIME: 11 Oct 1887
PLACE: St. Louis, MO
SUBJECT: Wedding Portrait of Mary Vejvoda & Joseph Dolansky
”Joseph Dolansky, working man of St. Louis, son of Charles Dolansky, musicians of Breskovir in Bohemia”, married “Mary Vejvoda, handmaid of St. Louis, daughter of Martin Vejvoda, miner of Privetice next Radnice in Bohemia” on October 11, 1887 at St. John Nepomuk Catholic Church in St. Louis, Missouri by Jos. Hessoun, Pastor.
Joseph was Catholic, 29 years old and unmarried.
Mary was Catholic, 23 years old and unmarried.

That’s my mom’s handwriting on the back.
“Dad’s Mother & Dad Wedding picture. Mary & Joseph Dolansky ne, Vejvoda”
Do you think I can still have a duplicate made at any time?

SUBJECT: Solar powered dancers
It was Stella’s turn for a haircut tonight.
Claudia drove her to the Magic Comb.
I stopped by on my way home from work to write the check.
My hairdresser is obsessed with these solar powered dancers from the Dollar Tree.
She buys some, clients give her others.
She must have over 50 of them.

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn‘t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

SUBJECT: Micro Brewery
About every two months, the girl cousins/aunts on my mom’s side get together to visit and cackle.
Tonight, we met at this local restaurant and micro brewery.

Tessa is still alive and kicking and still crazy.
She will be 11 years old around April.
Because she doesn't like the dog, she usually spends the majority of her time hiding out upstairs.
However, she ventures down when the time is right.
Tonight, I found her warming herself by the heat register in the pantry.
The dog was nowhere in sight.

She is almost 9 years old.
That’s 68 in human years according to this calculator.
She is overweight.
And getting ever grayer..
Still, she will plop over on her back to have her belly rubbed.
How many 68-year-old humans do that?
