This morning Lettuce had her coffee with Ben & Ellen from boxbrown‘s Bellen. …My middle name is Ellen, named after my mother’s best childhood friend. I think she’s an aromatherapist in California now. Once when I was a kid we went and visited Ellen’s family at their home on an Indian reservation in New Mexico. It was cool, she had a couple big weaving looms and she made us some cloth dolls. The desert weather was wacked out, one day it would be boiling hot and the next day we’d get a foot of snow. My sister and I had a great time with the neighbour kid collecting the huge icicles from the eves and sucking them dipped in a jar of Tang orange drink powder. Ellen thought that was gross because she said there might be bat poo on the roof, but she still let us have the Tang and we didn’t care.
