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

As reported yesterday, Jon Batiste's "We Are" album was named album of the year, performed by his Stay Human group. Jon and Stay Human are the stage band for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. I may have mis-spoke yesterday and called it the Tonight Show... In interviews on CBS News and other... Sign in to see full entry.

I didn't watch. Award shows bore the hell out of me. But this morning on CBS this morning they announced the winners, and I was really happy about who they named as winner of "Album of The Year." I really enjoy hearing Jon Batiste's group (is it Stay Human?) on those nights I manage to stay up late... Sign in to see full entry.

Everybody's been talking non-stop about what happened at the Oscars the other night. All the network news shows, the entertainment shows, the fluff and fold shows that go out of their way to keep it light: all they can talk about is that ten- seconds when Will Smith took offense at Chris Rock's joke...

The girl walked along a deer path that paralleled the creek, using a three-foot length of tree branch to move brambles aside as she made her way. At times she poked the branch into shallow puddles that seemed overspill from the burbling stream. She had to test their depth and the texture of the... Sign in to see full entry.

It's a crazy idea. I was gonna post to FB that I just found out I was pregnant. It seemed to me that anyone who knows me would think I'd just suffered a brain fart, and wouldn't be fooled for two seconds. A) I'm 86, and 2) the wheels were taken off that baby carriage 40 years ago. Not to mention the... Sign in to see full entry.

Was watching the news on PBS yesterday when a promo came on for "Nature" and the reports were to be about squirrels. Could I resist that? Not for a second. It was both familiar and exotic, covering various squirrels from all over the world. Red Squirrels, Gray Squirrels, Tree Squirrels, Ground... Sign in to see full entry.

Yesterday Gray Squirrel took a time out to lollygag on the back porch rail - which is flat and 5" wide. Chin resting on his front paws, he only raised his head when one of the neighbors came out of the bungalow behind my back fence and headed for his car. Gray kept an eye on him, and also on the...

How much time do you have to read about that? Let me just say that my childhood began before TV was in every home, in fact it was before every home had a private telephone line. For a time we lived in a rural area in rustic circumstances. This means that in the mid-1940s we lived like it was 1880:... Sign in to see full entry.

So while we were visiting & coffee-ing and all, I mentioned to my daughter that I'd found a really nice jar of cashew butter at Walmart - their own brand. For some time it was not to be found in the local supermarkets here, and even though it's a bit pricier than peanut butter, I used to buy it from... Sign in to see full entry.

This 'n That

My baby girl arrived at my house early Friday morning after her flight from Tampa the evening before. She was frustrated and tired from a series of delays that turned her arrival time here at midnight when it should have been around suppertime. We had a wonderful day together, laughing about things... Sign in to see full entry.
