And Then There Was Dad

She never wrote a letter, sent a condolence or greeting card, paid a bill by mail, without her particular signature message which was probably ignored by the receiver of the missile. Her signature was of normal cursive writing, including no elaborate ascenders, descenders, or exotic flourishes--no... Sign in to see full entry.

Try Anything Once

Absolutely gorgeous day today, after two days of nice slow rain, and today cloudless, blue sky, but I just can't seem to get with it. It is quickly passing me by, and though I am really enjoying it, I'm not accomplishing a thing. So....that seemed like a good time to sit down and check out Blogit... Sign in to see full entry.

Little Ones - First Day

Big grins, excitement, new clothes, new backpack filled with supplies--life is grand when you begin First Grade. Taller, smarter, ready for anything, keeping an eye out for her little boyfriend from kindergarten that she hasn't seen since school let out in the spring. What excitement when they see...

Seven Days In August

Where have I been? I wish I could tell you, but it would be too much effort to try to remember in detail. Mostly I've just been right here at home, very near the computer, but trying very hard to ignore it. Once in a while it called to me, but my answer would be, "Be still and let me be! I don't...

Tragedienne In The Drama Of Life

When life throws you a curve that was totally unexpected and it knocks you off of your feet for a time, it is difficult to get back up and keep going. I've been dragging my tail for the last couple of days and staring into space as the wheels of my mind keep turning in the wrong direction trying to... Sign in to see full entry.

I've Been Known To Be Wrong

“It is very unnerving to be proven wrong, particularly when you are really right and the person who is really wrong is proving you wrong and proving himself, wrongly, right." ~ Lemony Snicket, The Blank Book There is never a day that goes by without a bit of who is right? and who is wrong? cropping...

Yes, I Still Do It

I thought about giving it all up and just living on the edge of what others decide. But I can't. It's still on my mind, in my blood so, I still go vote....even though I sometime wonder if I'm helping.... or making things worse. Tomorrow is the day. My mom and dad set the example for me. They were... Sign in to see full entry.

When Do You Call The Police?

When you are making sure you are on the same page with someone, also be sure that you are in the same book, and that the other person knows how to read.

Antisocial?

Celebrating Birthdays wears me out. That is not just because I am old and tired anyway. They have never been a favorite pastime of mine, though they have been an important part of family life.... and I have a lot of family. The end of July and the beginning of August is the time of year for a lot of... Sign in to see full entry.
