It’s me, Joe aka Bald Punk.
LF keeps asking me what I was doing in that past life circa the 1850s. She wants me to say something glamorous, like I was a demon hunter. But that would be a half-truth.
As I sit here, I like to bury my nose in Scrappy D’s neck. He’s an awesome doggie with a palpable life force. Plus he might be a little guy, but he has a muscular frame. When he’s tight in my arms, I really feel like I can drink in his goodness.

Num and nuts like to look at me like I don’t exist, then stare at me like I’m a bug, soaring by their faces. They are totally whacked.
The three of them are drinking red wine, and don’t get mad at me, but I am too. I don’t always drink beer.
Anyway, as to what I was doing in that past life, it was anything but glamorous. And we weren’t necessarily demon hunters. But you have to give me a few days. It’s all kinda coming back to me.
I think the next post will be titled “River Pirates.” I’ll post it next week.
Bye for now.
