Burned Fries

"Who's Hungry?' There was no getting out of it. It was the day of my parents' final sign-off on our new house. Forget the fact that it was 150 miles away, and I was gonna have to suffer being a Senior in a new high school. We were ALL going along with Mom and Dad; didn't we want to see the brand new...

Just Like the Old Country

"Good Throw!" My Auntie X was one of the funniest, warmest, most congenial and vivacious women I have ever known! But, wow, at times that Italian temper raged! We went to her house nearly every Sunday for dinner, along with assorted other aunts, uncles and cousins. Tradition. That's because it was... Sign in to see full entry.

"How Bad Do You Want It?" Here are two items you can buy that are beyond all words in my vocabulary! Just when I thought I'd seen it all, here they come, just in time for Christmas...

There's a What, Where!

"Where'd He Go?" Summer, Fall, Spring or Winter; it can be brutally hot in SoCal, especially in the Valleys. When my girls were little we had gotten a "new" used car for me to drive. Actually, it had been a rental car and was all clean inside and so shiny bright on the outside, a pretty blue color,... Sign in to see full entry.

Stranger Than Fiction - A True Story

"Let's Do Lunch" In 1857, in a remote village of Southern Italy, two brothers, ages 4 and 7, sat still long enough to eat lunch together in their three-story stone and brick home while looking out at the landscape. They saw rolling hills dotted with mulberry and olive trees, with a sky so clear it... Sign in to see full entry.

On This Day - Happy Thanksgiving?

Thanks and Giving Thank you to all in Blogitsville who have made this place so warm, have enlightened my mind and lifted my spirit. You are the epitome of why one gives thanks.

Light My Fire

"It'll Be Ready by Tomorrow" I n California there are many places where it isn't safe to have a wood-burning fireplace (think wildfires), and in some areas they are outlawed as a safety precaution.

Grandson Update: "Look Ma, I'm Surfing!"

Back in the Water Just a quick note to all. You may recall that one of my twin grandsons sustained multiple skull fractures in September while surfing, when an adult crashed into him, causing the nose (point) of the man's surfboard to puncture Grandson's skull near the temple. He now has two... Sign in to see full entry.

"Mommy, the Baby's Shaaavvving..."

Little Sis There are several, no more than several, Little Sis episodes I recall. This is one. It was moving day. We were going to be moving far away, out West. Our house was empty, the furniture had been shipped. Only bare wood floors remained. I was 3 1/2 years old and Sissy had just turned 2. We... Sign in to see full entry.
