Invite To An Outing

First day in a while that I have felt like anything other than an old decrepit geriatric. It feels like a day that I could write wondrous and beautiful poems or stories, or epic themes of life and love. But at the moment I can't think of anywhere to begin or which way to go from a beginning if I had... Sign in to see full entry.

Doggie Discrimination

In the early morning hours before the sun is peeping above the eastern rim of the earth with just a glow in in the gray of the sky and the majority of tenants are monopolizing the hot water with long wake up showers in preparation for going to work, I enjoy watching the dog walkers getting their...

Boundaries For A Great-Grandma

I thought I had run out of books to read--ones that I had never read before--I go through them pretty quickly since once I begin I do not want to stop until I reach the end. I didn't feel well. The barometric pressure on a dark, thick cloud-covered day had set my right-side sinus cavity to painful... Sign in to see full entry.

Very Deep Purple

Blinding flashes of lightening, rolling pounding thunder across the sky, pouring down rain and river of water running down the middle of the street, then when the rain finally stopped, it turned to snow. I think March is trying to go out like a lion. And....today, the Kansas City Royals are supposed... Sign in to see full entry.

No Rain Needed

Opening day for the Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox at the Royals Stadium Kansas City--the opening pitch was to be thrown ten minutes ago. The fans came, but they are sitting in the stadium beneath small umbrella's and rain gear as the thunder rolls, the lightning flashes and the rain... Sign in to see full entry.

They're Ba-a-a-k!

Every year at this time the white-tailed deer show up on P.D.'s property. He waits and watches for them in early morning hours while Phil is taking his morning bath to start the day. Yesterday he got his first sighting. There were five of them down by the edge of the creek. From that distance up to... Sign in to see full entry.

Green Water?

I ' m listening to Moon River but singing "Green Water" because that is what is coming out of our taps from our water treatment plant bringing us our "drinking water" from the mile-wide "Muddy MO" trying really hard to wash us away as it comes around the bend at the Down-Town Airport. It did a good... Sign in to see full entry.

In The Dark Of Night

Shredding procrastination is, and always has been a drag for me--something that I find annoying but don't seem to keep from doing. I put it off and put it off until I am inundated and think I might just take my chances with dropping the papers whole into the nearest dumpster. But then I just can't... Sign in to see full entry.

Water, Water Everywhere

In the midst of flooded country, though high and dry, is not an unusual thing for us (me and mine) this time of year. Afterall, the Mighty Missouri runs through, all swollen, muddy, with raging current, eating at the banks which have disappeared, and laughing at the sandbags piled in attempts to...
