G-GRANDMA BRAG

Nicole, my grandson Rich’ s beautiful wife, posted on FB that our Kindergarten student, Kaitlin, who is reading at 2nd grade level, came home from school all fluffed up because teacher didn’t have writing workshop that day as scheduled. So Nicole asked what they do in writing workshop. We learn to... Sign in to see full entry.

OBSERVATIONS

Abdel said the story was itching him. He’d been doing some Google research on the history of the Italian Mafia, which he reported had originated in Sicily as a criminal enterprise. In the WYOS group, we had all watched “The Sopranos” on HBO, we’d seen the godfather movies. And in this neck of the... Sign in to see full entry.

WRITE NOW

I introduced an idea at the WYOS group – a newsletter style small magazine, produced in-house. The newsletter would carry a small bio of each writer, and one of their stories. I did a preliminary mock-up using one of Word’s templates. Unanimous Yes vote. Each writer will give me their hand-written... Sign in to see full entry.

TUESDAY AT THE CENTER

No two days are alike at the Main Street Center. So Tuesday a new lady came in, all smiles, and printed one name Doniss – pronounced Donesia. I asked if it was her first time at The Center. No, don’t you remember me from Friday? I said I hadn’t been there on Friday, but I would have remembered a... Sign in to see full entry.

Why do women like whiskery men?

C_C_T asked that in his comment yesterday. After giving it a bit of thought - maybe it has to do with Santa Claus. There was a Grand Ol' Opry star of yesteryear named Minnie Pearl who used to tell countrified jokes and introduce musical acts... Her opening was a loud "Howwww-dy!" in the high-pitched...

ABOUT RPRESTA’S QUESTION…

Rpresta asked if the walnut tree neighbor was the same one who used to kill squirrels. Short answer: no. The walnut tree neighbor is to the left as I step out the front door. That place belongs to a landlord who does as little maintenance as he can. One renter caulked some spots in the soffits,... Sign in to see full entry.

NUTS!

This has been a banner year for the next door neighbor’s walnut tree. Last year it barely produced two dozen fruits that landed on my side of the property line. This year my boys scooped up two five-gallon pails full, and left almost that many behind. Russ says he’s going to plant twenty or thirty... Sign in to see full entry.

JOB RELATED INJURIES

Guys notice girls. They show some appreciation, not always in the most courteous way, sometimes it gets a bit aggressive, and in the powerful and entitled, it gets to the level of criminality. Every workplace I’ve spent time in has its “Handsy Andy,” the guy who tells sex jokes and/or propositions... Sign in to see full entry.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE

Wednesday after Sandy and I delivered the car load of donations the CAC center, she dragged me to her monthly book club meeting. The book – which I hadn’t read – is “I Let You Go,” a best seller by Clare Mackintosh. All I knew about it was what I found on Google in a review. It starts out on a rainy...

THURSDAY: WRITING GROUP

Well, I was almost late to class – by the time I stopped to make copies of the topics and pick up the sign-in sheet, I was three minutes past the opening bell. (there’s no bell) I’d been working on polishing/editing something & lost track of time. Our topics were 1) Your home town, and 2) Christmas... Sign in to see full entry.
