The Yellow After The Rain

Will Self, author/journalist, says he always carries a notebook.....ALWAYS! The reason for that is that he learned that the short-term memory only retains information for three minutes. Unless it is committed to paper, you can lose an idea forever. I seldom carry a notebook, never seem to have a... Sign in to see full entry.

We Shall See What We Shall See

I don't know what is wrong with me. Actually, I don't even know if it is me, or if it is my computer, but somehow the two of us are not working together the last few days. Since I last posted, I have spent quite a bit of time and energy on three different posts for two of my three blogs, getting... Sign in to see full entry.

Perfect Monday

More than a week of Autumn has gone by now, and I am really into it and every aspect of what it embodies. The CHIEFS won again yesterday--four in a row now and no losses. Yesterdays game was great against NY Giants. Weather is perfect, cool nights and sunny days. Colors increasing in vibrance. One... Sign in to see full entry.

Too Magnificent For Documenting

"Ninety-five percent of all Americans have a favorite pair of underwear," ~ So says Gildan But, when I go out in the autumn woods, I'd rather go commando. Who needs lace in the woods? If you ask the geriatric crowd what's their favorite underwear, most of the time the answer is, "It all Depends."... Sign in to see full entry.

Only The Little Ones

The best part of any family has to be the little ones. I just love them. They keep me laughing and just waiting for more....whether it is the expression on the face, what they say, what they do not caring what others think. Our family is especially blessed with wonderful ones. Above, two-year-old... Sign in to see full entry.

Annicita Wants To Know

It took a lot of experimenting before I was satisfied with the outcome of making pumpkin pies from an honest to goodness pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. You see, my mother always made her pumpkin pies from... and not so that's the way I learned to do it....a can of Libby's with the pumpkin pie... Sign in to see full entry.

Can You Smell It?

I can, and I haven't even baked it yet. I'm already reveling in the smells and tastes of pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies. Pumpkin coffee is "the thing" at Starbucks this season, and at Dunkin Donuts. I bought some fresh cinnamon sticks, so I'm ready to do something....not quite sure what... Sign in to see full entry.

Living On The Edge Of The Woods

It is the summer's great last heat, It is the fall's first chill: They meet. ~ Sarah Morgan Bryan Platt Yes, In Missouri, they meet today at 3:44 p.m. when the equinox brings autumn.

Blood Lust

Starting today, all of my sons are in their 50's. All except David, Son #4, who will always be 22 no matter what year comes. Three sons, each a half-century old, hair thinning, gray sprouting in their mustaches and beards, how do you think that makes me feel? As long as I don't look in the mirror, I...

The Boring Cave

We got dumped on this evening, lots and lots and lots of rain that came down all at once, flooded my plants on the porch, inundated our curving road around the lakes and down past the runoff creek, and took away our electricity just five minutes before the CHIEFS / Eagles football game was to start....
