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....

Did Blogit Cause My Pain?

Well, it wasn't one of these, that caused it: "I have seen these people," the Lord said to Moses, "and they are a stiff-necked people. Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them." ~ Exodus 32:9-10 Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) Nigel Powers: [rubs... Sign in to see full entry.

I Think I Need One

I can't believe it. It is still summer here and yet, I have put on my winter flannel PJ's and some fuzzy socks to keep my feet warm. Yesterday I still had my a/c going full blast.

I Knew Them, I Feel That I Did

As I said to Blue_feathers a few moments ago....nuts...I forgot what I said to her. I'll have to go check. My head is driving me nuts today, what with the weather and all. Oh yes, I remember: "Yesterday was a good day for flags...and for remembering." Yesterday, on TV programs/stations, and on our... Sign in to see full entry.

Trials Of A Night Soul

"I tried. I really did. It would have been so fun to join you there today, but it is my nocturnal self that causes me to fail to conform to daily activities with those I love. Sunrise came as an unpleasant surprise after whiling away the night hours at activities others would do in the light of day.... Sign in to see full entry.
