Danger In Digging

They are digging in our front yard again. I knew they were going to do that because last week there were little orange flags sticking out of the ground showing where not to dig. But I didn't realize the digging was going to be so extensive. There are all kinds of things placed strategically on the... Sign in to see full entry.

Dubious Claims

Do you know anyone, besides President Trump, who makes dubious claims that are followed by fact-checking rhetoric? I definitely know people who make dubious claims quite often, but no one really cares and let infractions go without making an issue of it. People always notice and the person mostly is...

Regrets? I've Had A Few.

I don't know if you are aware of the fact that Kansas City has its own ski resort and yesterday it was going strong even though the temperature was in the 70's and the sun was shining brightly enough to sunburn. It's called Snow Creek. Snow Creek is located in beautiful Weston, Missouri--just a... Sign in to see full entry.

Change Is In The Wind

The acer rubrum (red maple) tree flowers began to show tiny buds today in the sunshine and warm weather we are having. Son #1 noticed them first. When the red tiny flowers are full grown, they will turn into samaras that look like little whirlybirds and fly away to repopulate. I am glad they do... Sign in to see full entry.

I Need To Get It Right

Clarification is in order for my post of Feb 14. I would never have noticed my mistake if it wasn't for a comment from Katray. She probably didn't mean anything bad when she said, "That's Interesting" but because I figured out my mistake, I was thinking, "What a boob you are and I needed to make it...

No, No, No

The post today of Nautikos brought up the subject of "a grapefruit". It almost made me weep to think that my favorite fruit of all, not its juice, not tasty bits in salads, not a bit, will probably ever pass my lips again. That's even worse than no coffee. Grapefruit in any guise is anathema to the... Sign in to see full entry.

A Silly Person

I am having such fun with "Chumpet". I read from it when I am in that strange-for-me situation of being bored but have absolutely no energy but at the same time am not sleepy. That seems to happen quite a bit these days. "Chumpet" is the perfect companion for me at those times. It has me wondering... Sign in to see full entry.

Coffee--Black Please

After 60 years of drinking as much coffee as I wanted and enjoying keeping a pot going pretty much round the clock, I have been banned from coffee and green tea from here on out because of my three new heart medicines. Actually, I'm doing pretty good without it since the first of Feb and don't... Sign in to see full entry.

To Live In Fear

Several times during my hospital stay during questioning I was asked if there was anyone I was afraid of. That seemed a bit weird to me, especially about the third time that was a part of interviews. If I had been a little bit more with it my awareness and thinking, I would have realized it is now... Sign in to see full entry.

My Project For Tomorrow

I made the mistake of resting my chin in my hands as my computer booted up. Scared me to death. There have been things I have been neglecting since I was so sick, like toenail clipping, nicely manicured fingernails, hair do kept nice, etc. What I felt all over my neck and chin was an abundance of...
