Just A Little Off

On my July 4th post here I mentioned that it was time for me to get my driver's license renewed. I've been thinking about that and today, since Sis and I were going to go out to lunch together to get caught up on our visiting we decided that first we would stop at the DMV so I could take care of...

Age Related?

Disarray--the place in which I find anything in or on my desk, my bookshelf, my mind, my computer, my purse.... "Knowledge has stretched itself to the point where neither the world, nor our intelligence, can find any foothold..." ~ someone said that but I can't find the little slip of paper on which...

Pretty Feet

"You have pretty feet," he said out of the blue. I was taken aback. We are talking old feet here, old feet on old legs, holding up an old saggy body and crepe-skin arms with blue vein hands, bags under my eyes and always a whisker here and a whisker there needing to be plucked. I was speechless for... Sign in to see full entry.

Driving Miss TAPS

Only ten minutes left of today (the 4th) and the fireworks are still booming furiously, loud, and sharp, I'm sure the poor doggies will be so glad when the humans are tired of messing around with them and decide to give it up for this celebration. July is my month--the month in which I was born.... Sign in to see full entry.

I Don't Know Whether To Write This Or Not

I've always been a person who leans to the positive side in life, who holds fast to the right, and am thankful for what I have rather than wishing for something I have not. I'm afraid though, that some who might read it will see it as a complaining post, a sad writing, a whining epistle wishing for... Sign in to see full entry.

Message From Kabu

I found a message to me from Kabu that is for everyone at Blogit: Hi dear TAPS. I have no computer with me so no Blogit. Can you just tell everyone that I am safe and resting up in my hideaway. Wiley is fine but cross. His personality is not gone yet. The great escape artist is alive and well... Sign in to see full entry.

It's Always Green Somewhere

A poet from long, long ago (1600's) was known for saying many things, one of which was: "Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises." His name was Pedro Calderón de la Barca y Barreda González de Henao Ruiz de Blasco y Riaño. Someone in his family must have been... Sign in to see full entry.

On The Night Watch

The night is quiet tonight after the rain. There are no noises tonight. It is after midnight, the doors are closed, no cars roll up or down the street. No sirens are heard on the I-35 freeway not far behind us. The birds are silent, even the owl who sometimes WHOOOO's at night are silent....but I am... Sign in to see full entry.

Always Flowers

"There are always flowers for those who want to see them." ~ Henri Matisse This morning I am so enjoying new blooming flowers on my hibiscus tree on my balcony after the bad weather last evening (tornadoes and flooding). No one I know personally was injured or property destroyed, but there was much... Sign in to see full entry.
