On Sundays when I don’t have Maggie it usually takes starvation to get me out of the house.

Sunset in the side mirror

Sunset in the side mirror

Sara, Maggie, and I are a few miles outside of Mount Pleasant, Iowa, heading north.

I’m never a fan of leaving the places I’ve spent much of my life and heading back home. My family is on my mind and I always miss them after we leave.

But what’s more is that their memories fade after a few days of being back and settling into my usual routine. That makes me feel even worse.

Closed St. Joe hospital

Closed St Joe hospital

I could tell a handful of stories about the old St. Joseph Hospital in Ottumwa, Iowa.

As a kid I went there for stitches in my toes and then went there as a teenager for alcoholism in my soul.

Now it’s supposed to be made into upscale apartments or something.

I don’t know if Ottumwa is the right city for deluxe apartments in the sky, though.

Bulldozer behind the chain link

Bulldozer behind the chain link

Meanwhile, out behind my dad’s house in Ottumwa the bulldozers are clearing the way for the new Pickwick Early Childhood Center.

Well, they’re much farther along than just “clearing the way” but I liked the sound of that.

Sideway books Readers Guide to Periodical Literature New card catalog drawers The Famine Immigrants

This is seriously one of my most favorite places in Monmouth, Illinois. Doesn’t feel like it was three years when we were last here but then again it does.

A peer in the revolution

Audio (MP3): 20180327 - A peer in the revolution

Me in the early 90s

And then there was that one time when myself and two older friends were drinking and carrying on, using too many drugs, and just driving around out in the country.

And then they decided they wanted to rob a house.

Being younger I went along with their plans because that’s what I usually did. Everybody I knew, everybody that I got high with in the early 90s was older. Sometimes a lot older.

And I went along with them because a- it was generally fun being up to no good and b- I liked that they invited me along. Even if I was always somebody’s little brother.

Rain drops on grass

Today will mostly likely be a day where nothing changes.

But that’s okay. Everything’s just as it should be.
