A coffee break for stories, poems, snippets from the day. Some opinions creep in from time to time….

Now it's finally warm, and sunny, and dry, and perfect in every way, so we have high winds causing sandstorms with not a camel in sight to shelter behind. (Dizzy is useless.)
I sat in the sun with my coffee this morning to find myself crunching down on grit from some poor farmer's field. The roads are filling up with sizeable dunes and the gusts were strong enough to shove the car from one carriage-way to the next on a supply run to the supermarket. I went home by the back roads. Opening a window in the house is not an option.
