Cactus Garlic Salsa For Breakfast

About five years ago, I think, I posted the following. It's not dated and it's one of my blogs I deleted when Bill made an issue of not liking me writing about him on the Internet. I'm posting it again because it is another autumn--my favorite time of year, and I won't tell him I mentioned him to... Sign in to see full entry.

To Sympathize With Spiders

Actually, I didn't set the place on fire. Instead, I sprayed my whole bedroom with Raid House & Garden - indoor/outdoor, which has a picture of a spider on it along with roaches, waterbugs, crickets, silverfish, sowbugs, earwigs, caterpillars, centipedes, millipedes, ticks, boxelder bugs, and...

Powder Your Arms

"Makeup is such a private affair...Not something to share. Knowing who you are, that's the thing" "And who am I?" ~ Jack Higgins, The Killing Ground Dad was so strict with his six daughters. When we were growing up, he would not let us buy or wear red clothing. Somehow he associated red clothing... Sign in to see full entry.

Oct Pumpkin Porch

If you don't have a pumpkin patch, the next best thing is a pumpkin porch. There's enough to go all the way around, and then some. Son grew them in his yard. They are just about the only thing besides peaches and chives that survived the long, hot, dry summer. Now I have to figure out something to... Sign in to see full entry.

Take A Gekko At The Doo Doo

Cleaning bird doo doo off my car, and off my deck are not really my favorite activities, but now and then it has to be done. That's what I was doing today--scrubbing, scrubbing, scrubbing, my deck rails with a stiff brush and a bucket of hot sudsy water laced with apple-blossom-scented Dawn. I...

Pies And All That

It is here...really here now. The leaves are turning quickly and are so vibrant when the sun shines upon them and when the breeze gently causes them to stir. Chrysanthemums are in bloom everywhere and pumpkins begging to be turned into jack-o-lanterns. All that talk about pumpkins on my other blog... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Always Something

Suddenly the sound of a rushing water torrent...and another water-main break announces itself. This one is just outside my window. It has been going for an hour now and the amount of mud and water washing down the parking lot is amazing. The hole is getting deeper and wider all the time, and closer... Sign in to see full entry.

It's All About Politics!

I spent yesterday with my sweet, gentle, lovely Sis. Over coffee and chocolate-laced biscotti she confided to me that she and my gentlemanly and generous nephew are still on outs with each other. This is so unlike either of them that it makes me want to cry. There is no man kinder and more sensitive... Sign in to see full entry.

Sunday Shocker

So, I go to Face Book to see if there is any new family news, and a whopper hits me in the face. It seems that Peter's step-brother (yes the one who spent eight years in the Kansas State Prison) out of the blue, yesterday married Peter's beautiful sister-in-law who's husband was killed in action in...

When Freedom Is Flawed

Early breakfast at Perkins Restaurant on a beautiful Friday morning with a pot of hot coffee, scrambled eggs, link sausages, English muffin, and really good company, is a good way to start the day and get ready for a busy weekend. A couple in the next booth were talking about hunting bear. Intensive... Sign in to see full entry.
