MATCHMAKER, MATCHMAKER, DON’T MAKE ME A MATCH

Despite the best of intentions, even the most sensible among us will make the mistake of interfering with fate. We’ll introduce one solitary individual to another, thinking they’d be good together, or at least one of them would help the other get over a recent breakup. Something like that. I never...

FROM THURSDAY'S WRITING SESSION

DON’T KISS THAT FROG! George the Obstinate was a knight in service to Queen Millicent of the magical kingdom known as LandNextDoor, but he didn’t always follow royal orders to her majesty’s satisfaction. Sometimes he’d decide to take a break just when she needed a task performed immediately.... Sign in to see full entry.

DISTRACTIONS

I spend too much time with Rachel Maddow at MSNBC and other news anchors and commentators at CNN. I watch CSPAN and the hearings without slant or commercials, and then find my own opinions on what is going on being scratched and dented by the arguments and opinions of the ‘professionals.’ It’s...

TUESDAY AT THE CENTER

So the repaved, restriped parking lot behind The Center was finished up last week for parking by the bingo players and early exercise group and drop-in visitors, etc. Yesterday when I arrived – early, I might add – there was a tour bus loading people at the front door, and the back lot was jammed...

ANOTHER SALKUM STORY

LEE TUCKER, FILBERT FARMER I knew this guy in high school named Lee Tucker. He was a senior when I was a junior, handsome as a movie star with a beautiful smile, tall and well dressed, dark wavy hair, lovely big gray eyes that smiled along with his friendly grin. I liked him. But I didn’t have a... Sign in to see full entry.

KEEP ON TRUCKIN'

Old joke: As I sat on the curb feeling dejected and blue, a friend came along and said “Cheer up. Things could be worse. So I cheered up. And sure enough, things got worse.” I watched part of a new comedy competition on TV last night: “Bring the Funny.” Came in on the last four competitors. One was... Sign in to see full entry.

AN APPROACH TO CHANGE

There are scenes on TV again of flooding, of looming disaster as extreme weather puts lives at risk. The flood crests along the northern Mississippi that closed down highways and filled streets and basements of towns in Illinois and Missouri a week or so ago have reached Louisiana and the lowlands...

JOKE OF THE DAY

Really. I’ve been racking my brain. All I’ve come up with is what’s on the news: Jeffrey Epstein, Level 3 Sex Offender, billionaire with friends in high places, finally gets arrested and charged in NYC. Bail denied - he's a flight risk. Labor Secretary Alex Acosta steps down in the glare of... Sign in to see full entry.

WHAT'S IN A NAME

OH-OH! The name I was looking for finally came to me. “Lilith.” I remember now where I heard it – it was on the TV show “Frasier,” the spin off from “Cheers.” Lilith was Frasier’s ex-wife, played to perfection by Bebe Neuwirth. (Thank you, Google.) In the online listing of the meanings of names, it... Sign in to see full entry.

I GOT NUTHIN’

Been tinkering in my mind this week for a name, a strong female name for the protagonist of a story I’m beginning. I’ve got the bones of the plot. Even a title for the story: “The Favor.” There’s a name circling high above the desert of my mind, floating on thermals, but I can’t bring it into focus,... Sign in to see full entry.
