You get up and walk out to get the newspaper, cup in hand and settle down to read the paper while sipping hot coffee.
What- no- screech........
It's fall and you no longer take the paper....
You get your news off the Internet, and it's all true....
Where are the funny papers????
What!? No funny papers to hold and recycle as wrapping paper.
Hummmm and you say coffee comes in paper cups while you browse through the Internet at your "local" coffee house.
How is Paris Hilton these days?
Sunday use to be the day of leisure.
A day for PJ's, sipping coffee ( in your favorite handmade mug), long walks, family dinners and naps while the game is on.
But did I say its fall?
In the fall we work 7 days a week., One week just flows into the next week.
Then again I gave up my newspaper and I feel really guilty about that.
The newspaper was my Dad's life and work.
He started every day by reading the newspaper.
He ended his work day by putting the paper "to bed".
While we were snug in our beds, my father was working the grave yard shift proof reading to make sure the paper hit our door and others in the wee hours of the morning, every morning.
So, canceling the newspaper was a gut wrenching decision on my part.
But the newspaper is not the paper of my youth or even what they were 10 to 15 years ago.
I now read an article and think, " I don't care what you think." You are here to report the news not tell us what you think and how to think about the subject."
My father use to tell me his job was to report the news not be the news.
If you have read a newspaper lately you know what I mean.
Or just listen to the news. What do you think Katie?
I personally think you should report the news and let us think.
Well there I go thinking again!
Back to my lazy Sunday.
I have clay waiting and I still want to find the time for a lazy walk and here I am on the Internet... wondering where Paris is these days.
I am so out of the loop.
Maybe I need to get the paper.
