Life in the fast lane--where's the on ramp?

Reasons 2021 may be better for most than 2020. Donald Trump will not be in the White House, his POTUS twitter privileges will be gone, and his angry face will no longer lead the nightly news. The vaccines to protect us from Covid19 will begin to be distributed and we will start thinking about... Sign in to see full entry.

Observation, meditation.

There was a time I was in a second-story above the street where I could watch the passing parade below. It was surprising to me how few people ever looked up. Some from across the street did but I don't know if they could see me. Theirs was just a cursory glance a scan of their surroundings as... Sign in to see full entry.

P.S. to yesterday's post

Son Rich sent me a FB message - he was feeling under the weather and decided to skip Thanksgiving at Mom's. His daughter was supposed to drive up, but since her dad wasn't well, she also decided to stay home. Wouldn't you know it? The first time I had the whole shebang organized to a...

Turkey Day for Grandma Patch

I've tucked away the crocheting for the day - my two boys will want to sit in the living room for the football games. There won't be time to chain one between each single stitch around the circle as the hat takes shape. Today is for chopping veggies, setting the table, popping things into the oven...

I was watching an interview with a geneticist / scientist on TV yesterday when she told the reporter that half of all the babies born this year will live to be more than 100 years of age. Be safe. Sign in to see full entry.

Chance Meeting

I got to my favorite supermarket around ten a.m. The parking lot was crowded, so I’d get a bit of a walk into my schedule. I adjusted my face mask, checked to make sure I had the shopping list in my pocket and headed for the “In” door. I needed some triple-A batteries and veggies and spinach for...

These days many of us live as a 2020 Robinson Crusoe, searching for footprints on our deserted island, hoping to find a companion like Crusoe's friend Friday. We grow sick and tired of coconuts and various roots as our diet and dream of the good old days when the Public House served fish and chips... Sign in to see full entry.

RECAP: 1953

Graduation on May 29, 1953 was followed by hunting for a job – by mail mostly. Mom bought a copy of the Seattle Times and we went through the help wanted ads, I sent my high school transcript and an application to the personnel department at Pacific Telephone & Telegraph, got an interview, and...

I wrote a couple paragraphs, re-read them and zap! Not what I wanted to say after all. The goal was to write about days gone by, some good memories about long ago, pre- Covid and this sick political climate. There were a few sentences about sibling rivalry - about how we kids were in competition for... Sign in to see full entry.

As usual since in-person group writing sessions are not allowed at The Center, I prepared a writing topic for posting on their Facebook page. Some of that post follows this intro. After she received my tip sheet Sara (the director) sent a thank-you email to remind me I don’t have to do one next week... Sign in to see full entry.
