At the Brutus Deli, Brutus, Michigan

This is the mug they served my husband's coffee in Saturday morning when we went to the Brutus Deli (Brutus, Michigan) for blueberry pancakes after a beach walk. It reminds me of my childhood, when bubble gum was a very popular item. In about 1943 or1944, kids from my grade school would form a long line to buy TWO pieces of the severely rationed stuff. Some kid entrepreneurs would then re-sell for higher prices.
And where were you in World War Two???
It doesn't seem that long ago really, although most people you meet now weren't even born then.
I started two new notebooks today, a small Moleskine for my purse and a larger (book-sized) lavendar colored blank book which has enough room to revise haiku as I am working on them. I like to number the pages when I begin a new book and then paste the season word lists on the inside front covers of the haiku workbook. Then I leave a title page and a page or two for a table of contents to fill in as I go. The last few pages are for lists of reminders, contact or web site information, titles of books and music I want to get and questions to look up answers for. It works fairly well for me. But I am having a much harder time integrating much drawing or sketching into this established system and may have to keep another notebook for that. I hope not. We shall see.
