Angel Baby

Today is Grandson Phil's birthday. He is my first and oldest grandchild. Today he is 32 years old. He is so fun to be around when he knows that he is the center of attention. I could not be around him today because I have been fighting a fairly mild case of the flu...not as bad as it probably would... Sign in to see full entry.

Until Spring

"Perhaps I am a bear, or some hibernating animal underneath, for the instinct to be half asleep all winter is so strong in me." ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh At the moment I am awake, at least half awake, but it is too cold to go outside, and really, there is no place I want to go. The snow is to begin... Sign in to see full entry.

The Largest Vug I Ever Did See

I think of it now and then, and wonder if it is still there undisturbed in its pristine glory, hiding in its crevasse until the sun hit the exact spot to flash a brilliant light back into my eyes for just a moment. Only once a day was the time right for the special event. I don't remember which of... Sign in to see full entry.

The Good And The Bad Of Leasing

This was the last day that we could turn in all of the signed lease papers for another year. That was bad enough. Then, without warning, the maintenance supervisor and another maintenance man turned up to start repairing the things that I had to list as needing repair/fixing/renewing from the years...

Spring Merch

Already on the shelves, in catalogs, on the Internet and customers can't wait to buy it and to start wearing it and begin decorating with it. My favorite Spring Merch that I've seen so far is a throw pillow that I just love. I don't have it yet but it is on order. I'm not sure yet whether I'm going... Sign in to see full entry.

Can He Do It?

Well, I'm not sure how this one is going to turn out, but I assume for the betterment of all.....maybe. Ribcage is now 57 and has been smoking since before he was an adult (hiding it from us until he reached 18). His amount of smoking (and drinking) was exacerbated during the years that he was in...

Getting To Know You

Thanksgiving Day 1991 after a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and large family gathering, I accompanied P.D, his wife and three children to the airport to see them off to a new life. All seemed well. A couple of years later a fourth son was born. But by the time Phil was ten, everything was wrong. Son... Sign in to see full entry.

Put In A Box

I feel like I've been put in a box and can't get out. Yesterday I made a trip to Walmart's Pharmacy to pick up a needed item (ended up with five items from other parts of the store, of course). At the checkout counter I smiled at the sacker. She smiled back and said, "I just love little old people."... Sign in to see full entry.

The World Keeps Spinning Along

Two family members that have worked for the government for years, this morning were told to sign a bunch of papers and then go home and not come back. Due to Government shutdown (Trump Shutdown) they were informed that they were on unpaid furlough. One of them works in Maryland and the other here in... Sign in to see full entry.

WHY? As in a dream, I see us there, framed by years that carried us to places never planned, or never seemed to call to us at all. Whence came those years that crept upon unsuspecting naive youth that never once suspected age or fate would come their way and interrupt their play? Down flowing,... Sign in to see full entry.
