This 'n That in "Quiet Town"

Finally went over to pay a condolence call on my neighbor yesterday. Watched for one of their relatives to park in the driveway so I'd know they weren't trying to catch 40 winks... Their son from California was there, driving his sister's vehicle - It's the red jeep that had been a frequent visitor.... Sign in to see full entry.

Sorry, Blogit Friends

Thanks to the after-Charlotesville, VA events in NYC and Washington DC, I don't have the oomph to focus on something light or interesting. I've retreated to my La-Z-Boy and bought a couple big fat skeins of yarn. I'll be counting stitches and biding time. I did buy a pair of those pressure socks and... Sign in to see full entry.

Petty Theft, and other petty things

Got up cranky and late after a long night of little sleep and a sense there’s a disturbance in the force. Told myself I’d feel better once I got to The Center. The three pot-stirrers were gathered at their table, heads together over Pinochle, whispering behind their hands as others walked past them.... Sign in to see full entry.

THURSDAY – NOT TUESDAY – AT THE CENTER

Last Tuesday during my usual shift at The Center’s front desk, Theresa asked me if I could sub on Thursday afternoon. She assured me Thursdays are always quiet. I said I’d do it. Thursday started off slow. The Pinochle players were busy in the meeting room, I brewed a fresh pot of decaf, mainly to... Sign in to see full entry.

A COMMENT ON “BLOODY HELL”

Abdel has become a regular and a volunteer, even a member of the advisory board at The Center. In addition to signing up for the “Write Your Own Story” group on Thursdays, he joined a book club that meets Wednesday evenings.

The Friday Night Follies

Around 8:30 in the morning son Rusty called to say The Two Mikes would be playing at Stagger from 5-8 that evening, would I be interested in listening to them. I was. So he picked me up. We settled down at a table where we had a direct line of sight to the bandstand. He ordered a beer, I had my... Sign in to see full entry.

Honestly, man, if it's over...

If you don't love me any more, just tell me. Don't leave me hanging on when all hope is gone. It's not a kindness to keep on keepin' on with a relationship that has worn out its welcome, with an idea whose time has passed. I mean, I'm still young, there's still someone out there who needs someone... Sign in to see full entry.

Al Franken explains the Pivot

When Stephen Colbert of The Late Show asked Minnesota Senator Al Franken if he plans to run for the presidency in 2020, the senator responded, “In my new book, Al Franken, Giant of the Senate I stress the importance of levelheadedness in the White House.” This, Franken said, is an example of “the...

IT’S AN ILL WIND THAT BLOWS NO GOOD

It looks like the bromance is over between DJT and Vlad now that Vlad has tweeted D was “weak” to allow Congress to lead him by the nose and impose sanctions on Russia. Clearly the guy is not familiar with democracy’s checks and balances. For the past 6 months we’ve been treated to hourly updates... Sign in to see full entry.
