Poor Ribcage

It is not easy for a man to live with his aged mother and feel the pressure of her getting old and decrepit and helpless, and feel he has to take care of her when he already has problems of his own. His health problems center around his lower back and lifting, so he is not a whole lot of good in... Sign in to see full entry.

Oh Boy

Opening Day at the Kauffman Stadium, the Kansas City Royals baseball team's home turf. It's busy, busy with activity, fun and happy fans. Cooking from the tailgates is going strong, and even though I am squatting at home I think the pleasant aromas are floating clear across the river and up the hill... Sign in to see full entry.

Movement

You wouldn't believe how difficult it was for me to get out of bed this morning--not because I was sleepy, or lazy, not because there was a lion in the streets, but because every time I moved any part of me a screech would emanate from my depths and I would cease all movement and clutch the pillow...

Dreamy Santorini

A man thinks a woman has nothing to do when she is home alone. He does not understand that home alone is a haven from the outside world, and a place that a woman loves, where her interests lie, and her imagination soars. It is a place that always needs something done or a place to rest from doing.... Sign in to see full entry.

Nine Days

It is becoming a habit for me to spend my time doing things other than writing. What troubles me is that I am not missing it. I am missing Blogit friends, but I'm not missing the chore of writing. Dotage is making an eremite of me. Never in my life have I ever thought of writing as a "chore" until... Sign in to see full entry.

As If He Didn't Have A Thing To Do

"The nerve of some people's kids!" my mother used to say in a voice of complete disgust. She would be saying it now if she were still alive and her sister, my Aunt Bess, would be saying a whole lot more in an even more vehement way. Ribcage has taken over for them. But in a case like this, words... Sign in to see full entry.

Not Complaining, Just Saying

I don't know if it is the weather or what, but yesterday morning I woke with a catch in my lower back which is no better today, and also shooting nerve pains in my right-side neck and head. I'm moving like an old lady (much older than myself) and groaning, walking all bent over, freezing in... Sign in to see full entry.

"Last weekend, Specialist Michael Stone, an all American Paratrooper assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division's 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division (and is my Grandson Michael), competed in the All Armed Forces Combatives Tournament on Fort Bragg, North Carolina. This was his final... Sign in to see full entry.

The Miles of Miles

Who knows how young he was when the World-Travel Bug bit him...or from whence it came... or where it went from there? I found out about it when when he was still fourteen and he began working on garnering finances to support his year as exchange student to Argentina. Some of you may remember me...

Down Memory's Lane

I just can't remember what I did with my secretary. I fell in love at first sight and spent many years perpetrating a special relationship. Her place was in my bedroom in a convenient corner and I spent many hours there being secretive, sharing with no one. Lock and key were important to me and I... Sign in to see full entry.
