Remember those square, stand-up "Word a Day" calendars? I'm going to start a "Ghost a Day" calendar. I'll stack up 365 ghosts, one on top of the other since they don't take up much space. Then, as each day goes by, I'll peel one off. The others will be dying for their turn.
Today, April 13, 2014: Ghost of the Day is Eli. Former neighbor. Merchant Marine 40 years. Favorite food: Meat with garlic. Cooking skills: limited. What remains? Smell of meat with garlic on winter nights. How long gone? 10 years.
Still cookin' somewhere, Eli?
