Drought Or Deluge

Tiny, tiny bit of raindrops. So stingy with it, and we need it so badly. We've had so many bad fires lately and they spread. I mentioned it to someone in blogit about the fire in the south part of Kansas City last week. It began because a worker on the new, fancy apartment building was careless with...

The Love Of Word Fun

The inspiration of Son #1 often takes strange turns, but he keeps me laughing. It was a few days ago that I was reading one of our bloggers who has a blog titled Bill's Great American Pasquinade. It had been a long time since I had seen that word, and I don't think I had ever used it, so I refreshed... Sign in to see full entry.

Please Marcel Me

Mirror, mirror on the dresser, please tell me I'm a little lesser. ~ Auntie Bess I'm back from the ER after making the family worried because my blood pressure rocketed sky high and kept rising. That kind of thing is what happens after a certain age and an accumulation of things wrong with the old... Sign in to see full entry.

Is Perspicuity A Necessity For Blogging

Sometimes, actually as with my last post, without any subject in mind, I just begin rambling and go where my thoughts take me. Is this a good way to blog? No, not really, but it happens, and because I'm on Blogit, people read it and comment. Actually, there are more places than just Blogit where... Sign in to see full entry.

Rambling Again

Son #1, eating leftovers from St. Patrick's Day, says, "The corned beef is righteous!" Son #3 says, Phil would like some more of that Jello, fruit, cream cheese, cool whip mixture." So I got the remains, which was still 3/4 full and sent it home with them. I should have done that on the 17th. It is... Sign in to see full entry.

Sleep Soundly, Nurture Life

I was watching an old black and white movie video that Sis gave me in a pile of them. Of course I can't remember what the name of it was, but it had either Jimmy Stewart or Van Heflin in it as a businessman. Now that I think about it, I realize that it was Van Heflin. I remember wondering if his... Sign in to see full entry.

The Patience Of A Cat

"She sits, composedly sentinel, with paws tucked under her, a good part of her days at present by some ridiculous little hole, the possible entry of a mouse." ~ Henry David Thoreau I don't know anyone at all who has that kind of patience. I have it not myself. There are those I know who quite often... Sign in to see full entry.

Brain Games

Yesterday I basically told -blackcat that I didn't want to take her silly old psychological test because I wasn't in the mood. Today she insisted, so I gave it a try. When I closed my eyes and began, I basically began to see places that I have, in the past, explored in the Colorado Rockies. That's... Sign in to see full entry.

For Love Of Machetes

I keep getting Internet advertisements for swimsuits being in stock and in style, but the weather outside is bleak and cold. It is difficult to believe that the time will come when it is hot and dry and the children of our apartment complex will fill the swimming pool with their noisy play, while...

Old Man Sunday

This afternoon, I made a trip to the closest grocery mart to push the cart around and get a little exercise on this cold, cloudy day. I was feeling closed in at home and I didn't even have pretty birds to watch because our feeders were totally empty. As you can probably guess, I didn't come home... Sign in to see full entry.
