Three Old Ladies

She has always had very short haircuts, even after she got older and her hair turned gray, so I was pretty surprised when she arrived in Kansas City this time with long limp hair hanging about her face, the top held out of her eyes by a big clip. When I exclaimed my surprise at her long hair, she... Sign in to see full entry.

After Dark

I don't know about the antelope, but we live in an area where deer play and freely roam. P.D. and Phil see them often, day or night on their property or even walking down the road. Sis sees them out her third floor window just about anytime from the wooded area there. They cross the road and graze... Sign in to see full entry.

The Microburst Aftermath

They are cutting my favorite tree down this week--one that I have loved ever since I have lived here. It makes me sad, but I have lots of pictures I have taken of this tree through the years. I was hoping to see it through another fall, just one more, but it is not going to make it. Its problem... Sign in to see full entry.

A Speech Worth Listening To

For those of you who despise the fact that Donald Trump is our POTUS, we must remember that as former President Barack Obama said, Trump is not the cause of our problems, he is a symptom of the problems of our country's government. Former President Obama is in Champaign-Urbana, IL where he received... Sign in to see full entry.

A Nonuple For Me

I knew the amount of points I got for my word in Scrabble long before I had any idea what the word was. Well, I knew the word I played was "QUIETING" but what I didn't know was that in this case that word score was a nonuple. I don't think I had ever even heard of a nonuple before and I certainly...

Happy Holiday

To those of you who live in the USA, both those who have the holiday off to play, and those who wish they did, to those who labor and to those who wait, to those in foreign lands and far away, I wish you a mighty-good day. Labor Day doesn't thrill me any longer because I don't do anything any... Sign in to see full entry.

And Then There Was Dad

She never wrote a letter, sent a condolence or greeting card, paid a bill by mail, without her particular signature message which was probably ignored by the receiver of the missile. Her signature was of normal cursive writing, including no elaborate ascenders, descenders, or exotic flourishes--no... Sign in to see full entry.

Try Anything Once

Absolutely gorgeous day today, after two days of nice slow rain, and today cloudless, blue sky, but I just can't seem to get with it. It is quickly passing me by, and though I am really enjoying it, I'm not accomplishing a thing. So....that seemed like a good time to sit down and check out Blogit... Sign in to see full entry.

Little Ones - First Day

Big grins, excitement, new clothes, new backpack filled with supplies--life is grand when you begin First Grade. Taller, smarter, ready for anything, keeping an eye out for her little boyfriend from kindergarten that she hasn't seen since school let out in the spring. What excitement when they see...

Seven Days In August

Where have I been? I wish I could tell you, but it would be too much effort to try to remember in detail. Mostly I've just been right here at home, very near the computer, but trying very hard to ignore it. Once in a while it called to me, but my answer would be, "Be still and let me be! I don't...
