Big Orky is attached to me, not to the building. He was quite small at the beginning. About like a ladybug with antennae. The antennae grew into straps. I’ve noticed Orky grows each time I smoke and the straps seems more binding but they do get longer so I can go about my daily affairs by lugging him along.
I was in the hospital for a couple of weeks; they cut the straps. But Orky was waiting out on the front lawn so he hooked back on. I plan to cut them myself someday. Anybody got a ciggy for me?

About oneta hayes
Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
Tha’ts most certainly quite a good incentive to stop smoking~
It is the odor that comes with Big Orky that is especially annoying. Thanks for the comment, Larry.
Got a light?
Ask the guy with Big Orky on his back. He is easy to find. 😀
Big Orky ain’t never gonna let go
Not unless someone that a hatchet to those binding straps. 😀
Love this. God help Big Orky!
Alas, it is so true that we have many Big Orkies, which we need to take the hatchet to.
