From Aunt Paddie's "Aging and Laughing" collection

Thankful for small blessings I've sure gotten old! I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees, fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take forty different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Creative Differences

Couple weeks ago I mentioned the Lucy Amanda stories to this woman I know. I said I was thinking of putting them out as a self-published little booklet. I planned to do "Lucy & Robert & The Bear," her story about the day a man came through my Grandma Lucy's little town with a performing bear. Early... Sign in to see full entry.

A silly verse won't make it worse, just a sip of a smile for today...

Argyle Socks He’s the Duke of Argyle and those socks make him smile all plaidie and squared off that way: he’ll never give in for they still make him grin. They were quite the style in his day. Now only the Duke wears the socks of his fame day and night, night and day. It’s a shame that the... Sign in to see full entry.

Happy Monday!

In the early '80s, when I was carrying three college classes, had two kids to raise on my own and a full time job, a strange woman came to work in my office. Let's call her "T." She was going for a degree in Public Administration on a disability scholarship. Her left hand was paralyzed from a stroke... Sign in to see full entry.

Porn for Women

From the Cambridge Women's Pornography Cooperative. The front cover is a photo of this cute guy, shirt properly buttoned, vacuuming. And it just gets better from there: darling, good looking young guys doing all the things women fantasize about. Absolutely leaves a girl with a smile on her face,... Sign in to see full entry.

The perfect birthday gift

Some time ago the world was changed: a baby girl was born! She grew up a joy to her mother, totally coachable and compliant, sweet and helpful to everyone. Her hair was always shiny, her smile bright, not a single cavity because of careful dental hygiene. She was smart with money, saved a little... Sign in to see full entry.

Good Cop? Bad Cop! This was on the news yesterday...

A hooker who advertised her services on Craig's List was emailed by a prospective client. They set up a date at a local bar. He shows up with his partner, both in police uniform, in an official police car, complete with a light bar, the town name, and (I imagine) the "To Protect and Serve" logo. She...

Ever have a secret crush? It goes something like this:

IT WAS PAULSMEYER... It was Paulsmeyer's shadow he, standing by the elevator doors with his hot eyes looking when he thought my hot eyes were not. Terrified that it was him, terrified that he might have been someone else, afraid to speak, to loosen the fool's tongue, afraid to listen, for fear he'd... Sign in to see full entry.

Chairs. Art chairs.

It must have been a heck of a party! When I got to the book shop on Sunday, not one single thing was where it should be. The pastry case had been unglued from it's spot on the counter and shifted. The calendar was gone. I never did find that. Or the book of updates and requests that always sits next... Sign in to see full entry.

I met the perfect man on Friday... purrrrrr...

Too bad he's 50 years too young for me. I was window-shopping for a Mac laptop, following up on some of those Mac vs PC ads. I love them, clever and funny and convincing. There I was in Best Buy and some kind of alarm was going off beep! beep! beep! in the video camera area, annoying to the max, and... Sign in to see full entry.
