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

Thursday, September 20, 2018


Tuesday at The Center, Abdel from the WYOS group showed up as usual for his exercise class – the stretch & move thing that starts at 8:00, and then he rode the Center’s van to the Walking With Wanda outing at the gardens walking path on campus. After he got back he shared with me the September issue... Sign in to see full entry.

I was in the checkout line, seven items but the fast lane was closed, behind a woman with a large cart piled high. She’d been unloading it onto the conveyor belt for a couple minutes before I wheeled into the lane behind her. As she worked I noticed her tee shirt, a muted shade of spring green with...

Got to The Center 5 min. late this a.m., but no worries, the internet had gone down, the computer wasn’t ready for me to use, and just to soften things, I’d brought along a few hat & scarf sets for Michelle to give out to folks in need, or sell in the gift shop… Turns out it was Big Wheels Tuesday,...

As I went to Thursday’s writing group I had the new story on my mind, thinking of getting class over with so I could settle into my La-Z-Boy with my crochet hook, working the pattern and thinking about story threads for “Villagers” as I worked. That’s when Linda surprised me with a bushel-sized... Sign in to see full entry.

Our Thursday group met at a raggedy start time, somewhere close to 9:30 a.m. I was a bit discombobulated because I’d just found out there would be no coffee that day. I couldn’t find the pot to brew up the usual pot for the group. The other Pat told me the pot, along with a pound of ground Folger’s... Sign in to see full entry.

Thursday afternoon the phone rang – it was the Clarkson Eyecare call center, reminding me that I hadn’t been back for a follow-up since October of 2016. Two years? Really? To me it seemed like only a few months. I’d been ignoring reminder postcards, still a bit disgruntled because the prescription... Sign in to see full entry.

I was NOT in the mood for it Wednesday: feeling down. But Thursday’s writing group topics weren’t going to write themselves. I was sad about Joycie, my former little sister-in-law, who’d passed away on Tuesday. Hadn’t seen her for 10 years – at my granddaughter’s wedding where we shared a hug and...

I was crocheting a hot pink protest hat, the kind that looks like kitty ears, out of some sparkly yarn. I bought the yarn because it seemed to be the perfect accent color for a soft pink hat and scarf set I had in mind. Turns out the hot pink was too red. In use it became more confrontational than...

Meredith Vieira was on PBS last night again as guest celebrities and writers talked – pitched – their favorite novels. So many old favorites, including “Little Women,” “Charlotte’s Web,” “Tom Sawyer.” It was an hour or so with friends, good vibes, a few nice surprises. I’ve gotten so much from so...

Long ago and far away when September came, it was an ending and a beginning. It was the end of long afternoons at the old swimming hole, weekday ball games on the lot by the water tower, and the beginning of another school year. This was when the roses stopped blooming in mother’s rose garden and... Sign in to see full entry.
