PATIENCE, cont'd

George was pleased when Lydia brought him a Budweiser and a bowl of popcorn. She sat next to him to watch the game for a few minutes, kissed her husband’s cheek as she returned to the kitchen. There would be some strategizing at tomorrow’s gathering. What to do about Darla, about damage control in... Sign in to see full entry.

PATIENCE - a story idea

PATIENCE George seldom asked Lydia about her day. He assumed she spent her time watching soap operas on TV between household chores. With the kids at school there really wasn’t much for her to do. But he’d heard something weird at the office that day. Mike Sagal, the underwriter, had told them... Sign in to see full entry.

WHAT ABOUT THAT BABY?

In the late '70s - early '80s - I finally got my stuff together, cleared my desk so to speak and signed up to go for a college degree.

YARNS, A USED BOOK AND THREAD STORE...

WHAT CAN GRANDMA DO?

Seems to me Rupert Murdoch and the Fox News organization is leading the spread of Nazi-style anti-Semitic "replacement" theory, the fear that persons of color will replace all the whites in power. The founders' old-line GOP policies and beliefs (pro-business and anti-tax) have been overtaken by... Sign in to see full entry.

INSPIRED BY THIS MORNING'S SCREEN SAVER:

OWL GONE Four little sister owls, perched in a tree. One flew off to Timbuktu and then there were three. Three little sister owls, playing peek-a-boo.
