Bugger On The Dial?

All he wanted from his father's estate was the old Westminster mantle chime clock that had belonged to his Great-Auntie Evva. When he received it, after his Dad passed away from a sudden and major cerebrovascular accident, he was surprised to find that his dad had not kept it in good condition. The...

Great Weekend Happenings

Father's Day weekend and father gets a rest from the bar-be-que grill. There is not much I can say about fathers that hasn't already been said by someone else, or previously by myself. In the father department I don't have any complaints. And boy could I tell you some fun stories, some funny ones,... Sign in to see full entry.

Phil's Back

Don't you just hate it when you drip a drop of greasy stuff on a pretty blue shirt that you just put on. There's nothing worse than a drop of grease to ruin an outfit, especially a blue one. That's what I get for having toasted sourdough bread with too much butter on it for breakfast. I should have... Sign in to see full entry.

Several Days Away

This is a day for freezing Reece's Miniature Peanut Butter Cups before opening them and popping them into your mouth.. Otherwise one will have to do a lot of finger licking to remove the melted chocolate from the fingers. It is one of those days where I don't really need, or want the A/C on because...

Loblolly Night

I made myself go two places today, places that I put off as long as I can. Where Son and I live is a nice place, and I like it a lot, and have no desire to move. But, the one thing I do not like about this apartment complex is that I do not have laundry facilities in our living space. There are two... Sign in to see full entry.

Infected By Fear?

If the secret surveillance of all my communications are being carried on by the NSA or the justice department of the U.S. government, someone is going to be awfully bored with what they find. I suppose that I am one of the over-280 million U.S. citizens in the NSA databases. Surely I am one of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Day Day

It's been a long day. It started out when the clock struck twelve midnight as D-1. By now I'm afraid it's already D-one hour and twenty minutes. I'm talking D-Day, or rather the remembrance of it. June 6, 1944 when Allied troops landed on the beaches of Normandy during World War II. I was a little... Sign in to see full entry.

I'm Not That Person Anymore

“There is nothing like returning to a place that remains unchanged to find the ways in which you yourself have altered.” ~ Nelson Mandela I went back today, back in time, back to February of 2004. I traveled in my thoughts, in my memories, in my emotions to that far-away time.... After spending some... Sign in to see full entry.

Sun Roof In The Rain

I do like my plain old little maroon colored Subaru Impreza and the way it just keeps chugging along high and dry. It is stained with bird poop because I park under a tree, and the windshield is pretty awful because I keep forgetting to fill the windshield washer tank, but all the rain is...

After The Storm

As everyone knows, at least those who have now and then watched the movie, "The Wizard of Oz ", Kansas, being the main Tornado Alley of the Midwest is prone to storms. Great niece, who lives in the middle of nowhere in Kansas with her hubby and two little ones, took this wonderful picture yesterday,... Sign in to see full entry.
