Cool on the Nanticoke

I was reading Facebook this morning and Jan mentioned that it was 100 degrees.  I believe she lives in California.  My thoughts went back to those two years I lived in Martinez.  It was June when we arrived.  I had a seven month old and just realized I was pregnant.  The tiny house had no air conditioning.  How did we ever live through that?  It’s amazing what you can live through when you are young.  I sometimes wonder.  Would I have stayed if my husband had paid even half the attention that he paid to his friends to his own children?   Well.  That was long ago and far away.  That book is finished.  How many books have I written since then?  And how many more are left in me?
