Day 2864: Maybe a disclaimer is in order?

Maybe a disclaimer is in order?
I've been doing this silly blog for 2864 consecutive days.
And, almost everything is true. Almost. 
Yesterday, here, I mentioned his Holiness, the Dalai Lama. 




Like many, I am fascinated and impressed by the Dalai Lama, 
but in my story, he was, of course, a look-alike. 
When he got out of the Honda, I thought, wow!
 He looks like his Holiness! In Tustin?
Then I thought of the title and I was off. 
I don't think he would mind, 
he has a wonderful sense of humor.





Update:

Grandhunk #1 delivered groceries today ...
all I mentioned that I needed was bread?

  
GH#1 hooked up an appliance that has been on my to-do list 
since December, and he moved a heavy pot to the patio, 
and the best part was the long hugs.


Blessed indeed.

Just an ordinary beautiful Thursday. 
I am washing dishes and checking the neighborhood.
I find out a lot from that vantage point.
A Honda I didn't recognize pulled into a parking space in front.
As is my duty, I looked to see who was inside.
He took his time and I assumed it might be a lady.
Then, the Dalai Lama got out of the grey Honda.


He was dressed in his disguise attire.
A faded flowered shirt and baggy pants.
The kicker was he wore both a belt and suspenders.
He opened the car back door and got a file.
He clicked the remote and locked his car,
as he walked off to a nearby residence.
I just checked he's still there.
I'll respect his privacy.
