Arctic B-B-Blast

Hey! We don't live in the Arctic, and it isn't winter. What's going on here? The only one of us that is anywhere near the Arctic is Grandson Dalton who is an Army Officer in Fairbanks, Alaska. The rest of us? We should still be celebrating Autumn, but all I see out the window is white. No, we are... Sign in to see full entry.

Keeping Up Fun

Anyone still here that remembers ArGee from Blogit past. He is such an interesting man and a very good writer. I just recently ordered a book that long ago his mother wrote. It is about his parents who were missionaries to Nazi Occupied Poland and had to leave during WWII but later went back again.... Sign in to see full entry.

Just A State Of Mind...

It chaps my hide to have to let people do things for me when I would rather be doing it for myself. I resist it like it was the plague. Most everything I do for myself, but since I stopped driving about a year ago I do let people pick me up to go places, but.... I'd rather do it myself and I'd... Sign in to see full entry.

I Have A Date

Yes, I do have a date. I have it right here in my hand--a big Medjool one. I'm nibbling on it with my coffee. P.D. brought a container of them to me yesterday. I don't get them often because they contain so much natural sugar which I really don't need. The bane of the pre-diabetic is sugar, whether... Sign in to see full entry.

The Price We Pay For Love

It would seem that since I became an octogenarian a couple of years ago I have developed a certain habit of being curious about what still-living past celebrities of my generation look like now. I can't seem to help myself. It isn't that I want to compete, I'm just very curious. I don't gloat when I... Sign in to see full entry.

Spooky Is As Spooky Does

During the night a heavy fog came out of the pond and drifted through the woods and even across the road to float our dwellings in a sea of gray fluffy-looking mystery. When I got out of bed this morn and peered out the window, I thought I had been sleeping for days and that it was now the day after... Sign in to see full entry.

Cookies anyone? I don't usually go overboard for Holloween since my boys grew up, but I'm collecting nice large spiders for making special cookies for trick-or-treaters. After all, an old witch with gray stringy hair and a loud squeeky cackle of a laugh needs to have a little fun. If you would like... Sign in to see full entry.

Go Chuck Elsewhere Please

Yesterday--so bright and sunny, cloudless blue sky, warmth exactly right, making one want to sing and dance even if one sounds horrible and their feet are nailed to the floor with tired bones. Today--exactly the opposite, thick cloud cover, gray, cold, hovering chill, silence reigns as sinus head... Sign in to see full entry.

The Quid Pro Quo Place

You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours....It is quite a human quality to want something for nothing, but life does not work well in that way....not for long at least. A human being usually eventually gets tired of always being a giver if they are constantly faced with a taker. Some tit for tat... Sign in to see full entry.

"Just Sitting By And Watching It Unfold"

That's what we have come to, a world of sitting and watching people rather than being helpers and doers. Oh yes, some Tweet with their fingers, and some write blogs, and some do a lot of talking, some even donate money, but most sit and watch...the t.v. news, the computer news, the iPhone news...
