Dinner was Served...

Last night we blessedly missed the Friday night traffic through town, found a parking space close to the Cheesecake Factory entrance and got seated quickly. Best of all we missed being rained upon during a pretty wild electrical storm. Our daughter arrived promptly at 6, in spite of having left... Sign in to see full entry.

Tales from the Trenches

We're meeting my one daughter for dinner in a while, so I'll catch up with everyone later. Meanwhile, here's a quick true story for ya. Years ago at work, one morning my boss, a lady, came into my office and also invited a woman in from another section. This other person was not too bright, but... Sign in to see full entry.

Hoarders, Part II

How Well Do You Know Your Relatives? My previous post about the hoarding neighbor was inspired by something my sister told me about a relative, and one of our cousins, at that! Apparently my cousin whose wife recently passed away is a hoarder! None of us ever knew it or had even the slightest hint.... Sign in to see full entry.

File Under Weird Neighbors

It's a Sickness... A previous residence of ours was in a "normal" neighborhood. There were homes lined up in the usual tract style, all painted to conforming colors with tidy green lawns. Typical of many communities these days. Our neighbor to one side had been friends with the person, a single man,... Sign in to see full entry.

Whose Mother Did This?

Mama's Ways My mom had some special ways of doing things. She was a young wife in another time; wore the cotton housedresses with aprons over them, cooked dinner just about every night and "minded" the kids. Didn't drive or go to work. Once a week, on Wednesday nights, was Mother's night out with... Sign in to see full entry.

Leif Erikson Day - October 9, 2018

Gotta tell you, I've never heard of this one! Hmm...wonder why it comes the day AFTER Columbus Day instead of the day BEFORE? Maybe it's left over from the time when Columbus Day was celebrated on October 12... Leif Erikson Day - October 9, 2018 "Dust off your Viking hats, it's is national Leif...

Goodbye, Columbus...

They sailed on the Ni ñ a, the Pinta and the Santa Maria, right? Uhh... It was such fun in early grade school to learn about the man who sailed to this land across an ocean in wooden ships; the Ni ñ a, the Pinta and the Santa Maria. We'd draw the ships and masts on brown paper, draw sails from white... Sign in to see full entry.

Time to Say Goodbye...

to my visitor. Just thought I'd tell everyone that this world had one less spider creeping and crawling among our environs tonight; namely, the one whose last known residence was in my backyard. He was so big... How big was he, RP? He was so big - that even his own web couldn't support his weight... Sign in to see full entry.

Where They Do Things Bigger

Gotta be Texas... I have some relatives in Texas. One of them has a boy in middle school who is in Band. He was asked to play at the high school football game (guess they didn't have enough Band kids, since maybe they were all on the football team). "Everybody" there goes to the H. S. games, and I...
