The Worst Of TAPS

Everyone seems to have a bad day now and then, but I think "My Bad" is hitting all at once. It's not enough that the whole US is rocking horrible from Harvey and oncoming Irma, but, for me personally it is hitting right up there with bad health, death of my grandson, and the exacerbation of...

No Explanation

This has been a hard week so far, for many, and not likely to get any better before it is over. Those who are still in shock, hoping it is just all an unending bad dream, and in pain grieving for Matthew, include a beautiful fiancée, two grandmas, three brothers, two sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins,...

Enterprising Women

This is my very most favorite UPAVIM hand-crafted gift that I received from my Sis in Baltimore for my birthday in July. I have it sitting on my little table beside my recliner where I watch TV or watch nature outside my window. Quite often one will see a cup of hot coffee or tea sitting on it. The...

Definitely A Headache

People on top of roofs for hours, people being rescued from raging muddy waters, sink holes forming, dams in distress and overflowing, drownings...a historical rain they are calling it in Kansas City and surrounding areas. All the creeks and small river tributaries are more than swollen, they are... Sign in to see full entry.

All Done

It is so good to be finally finished with something one has been dreading for quite sometime. Yesterday was one of those days for me. It wore me out. Without even taking care of the dirty dishes after evening meal, I fell onto the bed, clothes and all around 7:00 p.m. for a little rest and didn't... Sign in to see full entry.

Stool Week Continued

Stool week came and went--twice--with not a sign of even the intention of doing what they said they were going to do. ( Go to Stool Week ) But, suddenly today toilet stools arrived. All day long stools were carried into the apartment buildings on the shoulders of deliverymen and set down in the... Sign in to see full entry.

Circumstance Without The Pomp

"Most of life's decisions are determined, in the end, by people on the fence--those who just can't make up their minds until the very last minute. They are the unknown quantity, the last minute surprise. They often even surprise themselves." ~ TAPS, September 12, 2012 I don't often quote myself, but... Sign in to see full entry.

On Being Practical

There is birthday party this evening (40th) for my nephew's husband. The invitations went out to 180 people, and 160+ responded that they were going to attend. They will have a disc jockey, dancing, eating, and drinking. Everyone was invited to "bring a bottle" but told not to bring birthday gifts.... Sign in to see full entry.

Memories of August--Trinkle That Is

The surprise lilies are wilting quickly now and soon will disappear as if they had not even appeared last week. The crepe myrtle tree is at its best at the moment and always makes me think of Mom who loved hers dearly: The cicadas sing loudly every evening and into the night--a welcome sound to...
