EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW IS FAIR AND JUST

I've tried to keep my posts here on Blogit as well as on Facebook non-political so as to avoid nasty sarcastic comments. These days it seems hostile reactions are more likely to show up than a reasoned counterpoint to what ever I might have set in type. I have no problem with people who think for...

FAMILY SECRETS, cont'd

Jo hugged Katie close for a second after her daughter asked what happened to the guy. "Well, that part of the story is true," she said. "He was in a traffic accident and didn't survive. This was after I'd moved to New Hampshire. I got a news clipping in a letter from a girl I used to work with,... Sign in to see full entry.

FAMILY SECRETS, cont'd

At Katie's question, Jo turned on her sister. "Damn it, Rose. I knew you were going to open your big mouth. You can go now." "Not like this, Jo. I'm sorry, but sooner or later..." "Not your secret to tell, Rose! You broke your word, you better get out now, while the gettin' is good." She held the... Sign in to see full entry.

FAMILY SECRETS, cont'd

"Shut your mouth sis. She might hear you," her mother said. "For heaven's sake, sometimes you ain't got the sense God gave a goose!" "Oh stuff it. I only asked. Don't want to say something out of turn, you know, in case." "You? Say something out of turn? Like, that's gonna happen," Josie said... Sign in to see full entry.

FAMILY SECRETS

Katie had been sent to her room after a loud dispute with her mother. Josie found her daughter playing video games on her phone, sipping a soda and "lollygagging" at the kitchen table when she got home from work. "You didn't even stack the dishwasher, Kathryn. That's the least you could do. Did you... Sign in to see full entry.

"INTERESTING TIMES"

I was told it is a Chinese blessing (or possibly a curse depending on how you look at it) "May you live in interesting times." I don't remember where I first heard it or who told me the origin of it. We soak up a lot of information and misinformation as we go through life. Friends and Frenemies,... Sign in to see full entry.

SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE, cont'd

Amelie had no idea where to go, but she wasn't about to go back to the house. She instinctively knew he wasn't going to move an inch from his mother. And Bethel had no intention of backing off. The gas gauge registered just under a quarter tank. She pulled into the service station, pulled the keys... Sign in to see full entry.

SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE, cont'd

Amelie had nothing to say to Don after the incident. He told her to get dressed, that he was taking her to supper, but she shook her head. When he tried to put his arms around her, she moved out of reach and picked up a frying pan from the dish rack by the sink. She set it on the stove, turned the... Sign in to see full entry.

SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE, cont'd

When Don came in that Friday he found Amelie in the basement, moving a load of laundry from the washer to the dryer. It was two minutes until five and there was no sign of supper on the table, no pork chops cooking on the stove, no potatoes waiting to be mashed. "What the hell is going on?" he...

SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE, cont'd

Don finally came out to the car and begged Amelie to come back in the house. "Did you tell your mother she is out of bounds?" "I told her you were upset and she should say sorry." "Did you tell her I can manage my own kitchen? I mean, you've survived on my cooking and housekeeping for over a year... Sign in to see full entry.
