Eleven of Twelve

Where did this day go? The hours have rolled by and I certainly didn't accomplish much of anything. I feel like a big old grandma bear that has been hibernating. The first month of this year of 2023 will soon be gone and I have absolutely nothing to show for it. My big accomplishment today was to... Sign in to see full entry.

Life's Sadness

Another day is almost gone, the night lights slowly coming on The sweetest music lends the air of peace and rest and end of care But that's not true for everyone, 'cause cares bring tears at set of sun When loved ones hurt and fears o'er come the plans, desires and dreams of some Who know they...

Box Car Summer

Long ago when the world was square and had corners here and there, and flat sides on every hand, like the children's books I read even before I ever went to school, I was very afraid of the dog's that ran the neighborhood. In those days I'd never heard of a leash and walking your dog. People just... Sign in to see full entry.

It Is Red Friday Again

Just in case someone is not familiar with "Red Friday" it is the honoring and supporting of the Kansas City CHIEFS football team each week.

Mother-Son Relationship

This nasty, damp, cloudy, cold winter weather is making my bones ache and my equilibrium not so good. It's hard to straighten up when your back screams "no" and your knee feels like it might not hold. So, today I'm dancing with my walker that for quite a while has been stored out of sight. P.D. came... Sign in to see full entry.

Heigh-Ho The Piddly Things

"Heigh-Ho is defined as an expression of "yawning, sighing, languor, weariness and/or disappointment. Whenever I see this, or hear it, I think of "The Seven Dwarfs" who would always sing it as they marched to work with the tools of their trade (which was mining). Here it is already 9:30 p.m. (or...

I Just Love Old Friends

These days I must admit that my old friends are getting younger and younger. That's because I am in the ninth decade of my life and those friends who were my contemporaries are getting fewer and fewer and those who still be, are not getting out like they used to, are home bound, or living in far...

Sorry, But...

I'm in one of those "Can't Think of a Thing to Write" periods and if I force it, it just ain't worthy of readers. The sun is out, brilliantly, and if it weren't for the cold, I would be outside. But, it is cold, so I have made me a warm nest in my reclining chair and dug out one of my favorite type... Sign in to see full entry.
