We were talking at work

We were standing around, talking. There was my boss, and female co-worker. This young guy, who had dropped out of Yale and started working as a programmer, had missed his chance to go to Florida on business. He could have driven there with us. Our boss knew that this guy had wanted to go there and look for a job.

I was saying "Programming is the sort of job where you can drop out of school, even high school, and go to work". Apparently, this guy had threatened to come get me, and he had a gun. I needed to make sure that I had a gun, as well. I would get my pistol and put it into my shoulder holster.

Working at night

I was at the old homestead in Parchment. The yard was very dark, although you could see the garage on the right and the drive, looking back from the house. My black and orange dog Sadie was sitting in the yard. I wondered where my cat was. I went back in the house. My Dad was working there. I looked around and saw an exhibit that Hugh had put together about a technical topic, with photographs and labels, explaining them. There were also components connected to the board. I was looking at a book that had illustrations of odd-looking people, not of this Earth. The top illustration had a woman with a large, orange-brown head, with three eyes, one to the right and two to the left of her nose. Her head stepped in to a smaller diameter, a few inches above the shoulder, with a round top. The illustration below showed a person in a hooded cloak, with an opening. The person had what was called a "sept", and their head was cleft, where our face would be. You could not actually see that, as all you could see was a black cleft in the hood.

A little white burro

I was in my pajamas when my wife's little white burro got out the door. The creature was more dog-like than burro-like. The burro's legs were shorter, and were more like those of a dog. The head was large and the ears were short. I don't remember that there was much of a tail. I mishandled things at the front door, and the burro slipped out the door. I was rather slow getting out the door to follow the burro, and he headed up the sidewalk for the mall parking lot. I caught up with him and picked him up, as if he were a dog. All of a sudden, he had a blue suit on. I thought it was strange, people who would dress their animals in clothes. When I got home to show him to my wife, I was holding a new-born baby, as if I had gotten him, not the burro, by mistake.

This is been a long time coming

What I am now calling Dream Sequence was conceived close to two years ago. I had this cool name, and then forgot it! Dream Sequence is something similar to what I had originally had. I will be posting "on demand", as the need arises.

Sitting in a big-boat car back seat

We were inside the apartment, and my lady-friend, Cecille was leaning against a doorway, smoking a cigarette that she had just lit. That was very out of character, but was an acceptable way of stretching the limits. I came up, put my right arm around her waist and she kissed me. She is rather tall, at 5ft-8in, with reddish-blonde hair, pulled back. The scene shifts to me sitting in the driver's side back seat in a "big-boat", old style convertable. Our really tall, slender, blonde friend opened the front passenger-side door and sat down. She turned and told me that Cecille was on the phone, talking with a realtor in Portland about looking at a house. We are not in Portland, although we are also not in Texas.
