What's That "Thing" in There?

Too Many Legs... This is one weird week. The entire restroom saga of Monday was unsettling, but yesterday was also unusual. Nothing earth-shattering, just, well - "yucky." I was doing something mundane, really boring; the dishes. I lifted a plate up from the sink rack to put into the dishwasher (I... Sign in to see full entry.

Bathrooms, Anyone? Take Your Pick...

Bathroom Talk Today was teeth-cleaning day. I have to take pre-med antibiotics beforehand, and it requires a lot of water to get them down an hour before the appointment, There's a bathroom right outside the dental office, and though I don't like to use it, I do. I decided to use the restroom again... Sign in to see full entry.

It's NOT " Normal..." Another mass shooting, more TV coverage by reporters, live shots of families grieving, talking heads discussing the whys and wherefores, and in the end, law enforcement or someone else remarking, " This is the new normal.

Crocky the Cat

Guess I've always unusual neighbors, even as a little girl. We had one family down the street who owned a Boxer that patrolled the front yard, viciously. His owners had a 3-foot high chain-link fence to hold Junior back from attacking us on our walks to and from school (like that would really be... Sign in to see full entry.

No, I'm not doing NaNoWrite

Just haven't had a minute, nor have I felt well with this bronchial infection. We did have the family over for a dinner today to celebrate three birthdays and one daughter's anniversary. Since I'm still on antibiotics and barely getting well, we ordered take-away Italian food; lasagna, sausage and... Sign in to see full entry.

No More Trick-or-Treating?

When Does a Kid Become Too Old to Trick-or-Treat? As I read FSI's post today about his last year of trick-or-treating, I was reminded that a friend just had asked me if the grandkids were still into that or not. This is the first year they have "graduated" from trick-or-treating. However, they did... Sign in to see full entry.

Strawberries in my Hair, Part I

An Addendum But that wasn't the end of the tale of little RP being called a redhead. When Papa got home later that day, Mama, still incensed, recounted the incident to my dad. Kids, as I've said, have a sixth sense in knowing the subtleties of parents' behaviors, like when they are in total and... Sign in to see full entry.
