Phil Has A Job

He cannot speak. At least he can not form words or voice his mind, but he speaks with his eyes, his expressions, his body language, his smile, his laughter. I have never seen a person not smile back at him or get angry at him, or desire to mistreat him. Curiosity is the worst reaction I've seen and... Sign in to see full entry.

Two-Thirds Over And Gone

SPRING IN THE EYES OF RIBCAGE woods rife with birdsong alive in fresh air nothing but puffery blowin' the hair. kilter yer lemma furbish the bell toss those long-johns six feet in the air. I don't think anyone dislikes winter more than Ribcage. He learned to hate it when he was in the US Navy and... Sign in to see full entry.

Falling By The Wayside

When the mind does not want to furnish the fingers the wherewithal to exercise the keyboard to produce an interesting or educational or comical post, one might as well take leave (fall by the wayside) and do something more conducive to life and living. Thus, in the interest of spring cleaning, I... Sign in to see full entry.

Paid To Quit

I've been paid to stay at a job, but I've never been paid to quit. Apparently (so it says on the Internet) that Amazon pays employees $5000 to quit working there. That's a new one on me, but then, I'm sure I'm way behind the times. After they are paid to quit, they can never work for Amazon again.... Sign in to see full entry.

I Really Am Old

I really am old, aren't I? I don't see myself that way in my mind. Most of the time I don't feel that way. But, looking at me...and my Grandson Peter...and my Great-grandbaby Vivienne, I have to ask, "Who is that old lady in the picture? I think I like her. She looks like my Grandma Jelinek did the...

One Of A Kind

What better day to think about the past, to write about the past, to talk about the past? What better time to remember the past, than Mothers Day?

Letter To A Far Away Loved One

"Darling One. Auntie Nila stopped by a bit ago. I greeted her with my usual happiness at her visits. She is such a sweetie. But somewhere into her visit, the atmosphere changed from sunshine to tears. How can this be? It was supposed to be "happy ever after" after your last bout with hospitals and...

I Lied

I bought myself a Mothers Day present. It comes tomorrow. I'm hoping to get it installed and put together and used the first time without anybody noticing. When my sons, at various times, asked me, "What do you want for Mothers Day, I lied and said, "I don't want anything. I have everything I want."... Sign in to see full entry.

The Runaway

I never ran away from home, never had a desire to do so--at least not until I was married and had four growing active children. No, it was not the children that made me want to disappear, make a new life elsewhere. It was their father who had changed, or seemed to. Actually I don't really think he...
