Season's End by Barbara Carvallo

A long, warm, dry fall here in Colorado.  Temperatures are still in the low 80's just days before Halloween.  Global warming is a fact, idiot politicians and their masters to the contrary.  While it is still a joy to see the flowers, this is not particularly good for the gardens. Their life and growth habits are optimally served by the cycle of the seasons.

our mother turn by s and brings darkness early now---no longer is the ground warm against bare feet--although the birds sing and the butterfly dance---change comes--it is natural---i find myself sleepy now --more than usual--longing perhaps to hibernate as in the days of my ancestors---our mother turns and smiles at her children who need the cold and the darkness--gentle she covers the tiny seed with a blanket of fallen leaves---soon the acorns will have all been stored and the burrows secured----our mother turns for each of us--in love---we are blessed

seems that medicare insists on evaluating elderly folk ----i put it off until i could not anymore---o.k. i will see the nice geriatric counselor---
she seemed nice enough--concerned that i smoke and am thin---
oh dear you have a family history of mental illness and depression she exclaimed---very concerned that i am not medicated
she asked some routine questions and handed me a packet to complete
the doctor will call you when he is done with the evaluation
i dutifully filled out the packet
yes---no---not sure etc--etc
ah DO YOU HAVE RECURRING DREAMS--if yes please explain in detail
" i wake up in terror---i dream that there is one egg left---viable--just waiting----it is senior night at the community centre---no not senior movie night or bland salt free pot luck night but tango night---the music the dance floor tango night---some one takes my hand and leads me to the dance floor---tango---i get all caught up in the tango and tango right out into the parking lot---no i never got his name---did not want it--just the mystery of the night and the tango---two weeks later i puke--and puke again---doc orders tests---results come back---number seven is due just in time for my 70th birthday---omg omg doctor i do not need anti depressants i need birth control"
the nice doctor called me today---he said i was crazy and wonderful---good mental illness he said---no need for meds but he said there was no need for birth control either---just keep dancing
come--we tango now

Green Tomato Sauce

For those not sure what to do with green tomatoes at the end of the season may I suggest a green tomato, garlic, olive oil and onion sauce to be combined with pork and green chili. Depending upon the tomato they may need to be blanched before saucing or placed in a crockpot.
