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?

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.

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...
