Slouching towards senescence and exploring the outer limits of desuetude with books, music, cats, steeped tea, and an occasional meander:  this is a brief chronicle of my life.  I am an elder-cliche who wants to make my place here so I can toss out all the crumpled bits of paper and ancient lists.  I want to diminish my footprint.  Here are some major players:  my self-image as fall-guy, straight-woman, comic foil, and  butt of jokes.  Also meet Fitzwilliam, known as Billy, and Elinor, known as The Horse.
