Bunny daze by the window.
It is not much different now as it was when I was a kid. We talk about the same amount, that I could remember.
Mostly the communication was directives.
Or exclamatory expressions. Pretty much. " your father will be home soon"
Or, if you don't finish your asparagus, I'm going to give it to you as an enema."
We never went deeper than that.
So she still knows who I am ("sunny boy")
And I get a big smile when I get over to her house..It will have its weight on the scale of my life.
