She had her back turned as she stood at the stove turning bacon. Then the boy was gone. “You got to call the doctor, Mom!” Bess said. “Not just yet, Bess. We... Sign in to see full entry.

NOODLING - CONT'D.

“I gotta see the doctor!” Bess yelled, even before she burst through the kitchen door. “Call ‘im now, Mom!” Mama Patch was alarmed. She’d never seen Bess in such a panic. But at first startled glance she sawBessie wasn’t skinned up, no bruises or blood. “What’s wrong?” she asked as Bessie skidded to... Sign in to see full entry.

NOODLING ON A COMING OF AGE THEME

Her birth name was Elisabeth, but from the cradle up, she was known as Bess. Not honey-baby-sweetheart Bess, not sweet little princess Bess the good sharer. Once she got to daycare, she was Bossy Bessy; if you happened to be in her play circle and you were halfway smart, you learned quickly not to... Sign in to see full entry.

THE LAWN MAFIA...

Funny the stuff you find in folders as you sort and pitch, things filed for safe keeping years ago and found now.
