Death of a Blogger

Blogit days pass by quickly when you don't feel like writing. Before you know it, other blogit members think you have left the place for good, or are dead. Perhaps the two are identical. Dead to Blogit warrants a proper epitaph. How about: I wrote some good posts And I wrote some bad ones... I... Sign in to see full entry.

Sleeping In A Hearse

Just when it is on the local news continuously that Mummies of the World The Exhibition ( http://mummiesoftheworld.com/ ) is coming to Kansas City in June and they are showing pictures that are quite gross, Son #1 noticed that there is an old white hearse in the parking lot of our apartment complex....

What Do You Think Of Your Neighbors?

Sis has Netflix, the kind you get the movies by mail and have to mail them back after three days. She's had it a long time and just doesn't go to the trouble of changing to the easier way. I don't have Netflix at all. It is true that I do not watch much TV, and even though I have a video player, I... Sign in to see full entry.

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Spring is here and summer is coming on and soon kids will be out of school. Already they are active on weekends in pretty weather with their skateboards and bicycles and other activities. Regarding the picture, this is not a kid. He is a family member. You can tell by his balding head that he is... Sign in to see full entry.

Are You Listening?

The grass is green The sky is blue Enjoy the weather whatever you do. The above is the extent of my poetry for today. I have my window open for the fresh spring air and am breathing it in, but it doesn't seem to be helping to replenish my brain waves. I am reading a book, squeezed in between other...

Progress For Me

"From a principal's publication, 1815: Students today depend on paper too much. They don't know how to write on a slate without getting chalk dust all over themselves. They can't clean a slate properly. What will they do when they run out of paper?" ~ Quoted in Chris Brecheens' blog "Writing About... Sign in to see full entry.

Most Hilarious

Son #1 says it is the most hilarious thing he's ever seen. He also wishes he had done it himself. Laughing is so good for a person. It is healing of the mind, body and soul. Even God laughs, so The Holy Bible tells us. I hope that President Trump can see the fun in this and enjoy it himself. Sign in to see full entry.

Sylvan Surroundings Shrinking

"Unto this wood I came As to a nest; Dreaming that sylvan peace Offered the harrowed ease- Nature a soft release From men's unrest" ~ Thomas Hardy When I moved to this place years ago, it was surrounded by forested areas on every side, and huge old oaks stood on the grounds reaching to the skies...

Now I've Heard Everything

I keep hearing it over and over and over again from Son #1, "I can't believe such a thing!" Listening to the news this morning he heard that now "they" (whoever they are) are passing out free condoms for pets. He can't get over picturing how a dog, or cat, owner could put such into use. He looks... Sign in to see full entry.

Well, That's A Relief

I was stymied. I was blocked from Blogit. I could not read anyone and I could not post blogs. It was rather stunning for a person who has been here since 2004. I sent an email to a couple of my long-time buddies since I had their addresses on my email contacts lists. Here is what I told them: "I... Sign in to see full entry.
