I loved this nerdy boy for his square look and manly voice.

Having browser troubles, I think.

WileyJohn told me that my posts are full of HTML code and whatnot.... I can only leave two lines of comment and then my browser erases any more words than that. Either I'm being censored as Chatty Kathy or I Have a problem. Anyone else seeing Wiley's view as they read my work?? I may have to reload Mozilla as it has taken over and won't let me access my IE anymore to any great extent. I am off to babysit Royal and Rya this a.m. I only slept three hours, so this should be interesting. Sign in to see full entry.

Max is exhausted and so are the rest of us. Babysitting, harrumph.

Max looks like this doggie, the last one on the page, scroll down to the bottom. He is presently passed out after a day of being harrassed by my rottie/aussie cattle dog, Baby. WE are all thinking of bed at this point. Idiot dogs. Kids are easier. Sign in to see full entry.

I would just like to say that conscientious foster moms are blessings.

I was helping out my friend, trying to re-organize her paperwork in her office for the foster care that she does. She has a new little girl and must make room in the file cabinets for her papers where the last girl, now too old for foster care, used to have her papers filed. When the kids turn 18 they are fairly abandoned by the system if they let go of it. The last girl quit high school and is now foot loose and fancy free, whatever that means. It is not good. The foster son before that last... Sign in to see full entry.

Looking at the trees in my garden, knowing that I would have climbed them

in childhood. I was a tree climber, see? Not quite as fast as our later real monkeys, Mofu and Bigo, but fast. I knew just where to hit the trunk with my foot and then up into the first y cradle of branches. I would hit each familiar hold with speed and then jump onto the roof, soft as a cat, so as not to be heard. I hid up there, in the tree or on the roof, unmoving to watch the neighborhood or tree life go by or to read books. I stared at clouds and watched them form horses that turned into...

Upset by library charges. They are to notify me via email when books

are overdue. I either received no notification or went to the site and found it down and not accepting renewals at that time. I can't remember which as it was weeks and weeks ago, during the Christmas holidays and I am old. Now, I fear that I cannot take out more books because the fines are so high and I am too poor this month to pay them. Will they believe my story that I didn't get the notice or that I tried and their server was down? I hope so because one or the other is the truth, I just... Sign in to see full entry.

Three extremely talented grandchildren sing at Christmas.

I can see their futures now. Nowhere near a stage, I'm hoping. You will hope with me. Watch this..... Sign in to see full entry.

Carnaval in Brasil approaches and I remember how it was in the old days...

Rio Carnaval has paraades like this now, but it used to be like this, and is no longer. The real citizens of Rio have watched tourists change their celebrations, make them solely sexual and fairly stupid at the private balls, so they all and I mean all leave town. For a great older feeling Carnaval, I would recommend Bahia, Maranhao or Ceara'. The Rio street cars are called BONDES (BONE gees) and are rented during Carnaval sometimes and take music all over the city, stopping sometimes for... Sign in to see full entry.
