Mom bought Karo syrup when I was young, dunno what for. I boiled it

quickly and secretly to make taffy as Granny had taught us, but ended up just eating it by the huge spoonful after boiling it for awhile. I was a sugar freak as a child. I wandered for hours and hours after other little kids went home, knocking on just one more door, Trick or Treat, until the whole pillow case was full to the top and impossible for me to carry any further.I was sure that GOD made Halloween just for me. I spent my entire weekly allowance, ten cents, on one bag of sunflower seeds... Sign in to see full entry.

Huge country pork ribs, 5 lbs @ $4.00 and invented sauce.

I opened the package thinking that I had six long thin pork ribs, but no, they were huge pork steaks and only three fit in the oven pan and three in the stove top fryer. I had about two ounces of Tangy BBQ sauce left in a large bottle, so I put an envelope of powdered Ranch Dressing in the bottle, two large tablespoons of Canola oil, two containers of Malt Vinegar from Long John Silver's, three Soy envelope containers from Panda Express, one cup of curdled milk from the fridge and other Hot...

My daughter's visit from Florida was timely.

She came for her best friend's birthday and her best friend's husband told his wife that he was leaving her forever twenty minutes before the surprise party. She was dragged totally distraught to dinner with her mom to discuss this, but came into a room with over 60 guests at a surprise party, my daughter having been flown in as the biggest surprise. Turns out that her support group lovingly formed around her to hug and cry together was good for her. The gods work in mysterious ways their... Sign in to see full entry.

What I read at breakfast and I personally know this to be true.

Also, Central America, unspoken of, is also failing, failing failing and we care not, though it will change our priorities mightily in our children's future. Here: Mexico collapse? Drug wars worry some Americans By Traci Carl The Associated Press Tucson, Arizona | Published: 01.18.2009 MEXICO CITY – Indiscriminate kidnappings. Nearly daily beheadings. Gangs that mock and kill government agents. This isn't Iraq or Pakistan. It's Mexico, which the U.S. government and a growing number of experts... Sign in to see full entry.

Give it away, give it away, give it away...

That poor fellow who wants to garden for me arrived and I still have not one rupee to share, well, I did find about $1.50 in the car change thingie and gave him that for the bus. He's been in the hospital with pneumonia and is diabetic, too. Gave him a bunch of cds in Spanish as he is half O'Odham and half Mexican American. He says that he will listen to them and he may. But, if he sells them at ZIA's, well, money for him. Gave him some, three, angels to give to his sister as she wants to order... Sign in to see full entry.

Hit the young and cool spots in downtown Tucson last night, slept @ 4 a.m.

I may die but I will leave behind stories to tell. I put 475 pounds of belongings inside cardboard boxes into my car with little to no help. I met the funniest old man on Earth at the train station, my dad's age, who helped me to get them out of the car and into the train station. The station master blocked the six 50# boxes as overweight, so I went home, got more box tape and many cardboard boxes and returned to the station. The old fellow named himself Harry Truman when I asked for his name.... Sign in to see full entry.

I took Piya to the Casbah Tea House after picking her up at the airport.

We had a lovely time and I blogged about it here on my new blog about Tucson only. http://abuelitastucson.blogspot.com/ So many franchised places are so franchised and busy and full of the same people. The Casbah is always private feeling, even when full and I go back into the 60s when I am there and having fun with friends. It, like many businesses on 4th Avenue, is an old house redone into a small restaurant which serves vegan dishes. And the prices are so very reasonable that even poor old...

Does it change a marriage, a relationship to have no "OUT" ?

Before divorce and in some religions, there was/is no leaving, no possibility, no alternative paths. Does this make people compromise, co-operate and work better together? So much of the world is this way. I wonder. Imagine this, please, for one moment. Thank you. We jump in and out of fantasy definitions of love, forming fantasy relationships with imagined partners, avoiding reality and all that proof before us that we are not who we pretend to be and they are not who they pretend to be and the...

Royal's visit, he's my 4 mo. old grandson, was less than an hour, boo hoo.

His father dropped him off and left, the dogs licked his hands to eight times smaller than they had been when he first arrived and then tried to lick his face. When I said NO, Baby barked back at me and that made Royal jump, frightening him. Then he jumped and jumped and jumped while Baby barked and I had to put her outside. He kept jumping as that is his new thing this month. I made him a bottle and he drank it off and on, but not really. He talked to the dogs and they liked him for that. I...
