Golden Days

Across the road the sunshine, the birds and little animals, the jumping fish in the pond, the cry of the loon and the honk of the geese... the summer cicadas, the red-headed woodpecker drumming, the hoot of the owl... After all these years it all still calls to me maybe even more so than when I... Sign in to see full entry.

A Penny For Your Thoughts

This is the only place I know where one can still garner pennies for their thoughts that they write and post each day, and where the pennies collect and wait for a person to retrieve them. I hadn't thought about that for a long time as I have not been very faithful in writing and posting on a... Sign in to see full entry.

"Hit Him Anton!" I never was a "slasher fan". I hated blood and gore and chewing my fingernails, but today I was intrigued by one that I never knew existed. Sis wanted me to join her this afternoon just to hang out, enjoy some of her bounty from a new farmers' market she had tried, and watch with... Sign in to see full entry.

Frozen Men's Under Things

Two of my adult sons speak way too loudly. The more they think what they have to say is important, the louder they get. It is especially noticeable over the phone. It seems as if they think that if they can't see you that you may not be able to hear them. The longer we talk to each other, the... Sign in to see full entry.

I Used To Think

I used to think of myself as perspicacious. Perhaps I was, perhaps I wasn't, but I thought of myself in that way. Now I don't quite know what to think of myself. I only know that it is a struggle to grasp what I know I know, and that it evades me the moment that I need or want that information. It... Sign in to see full entry.

I Love Family!

Having received this in the mail today and perused it several times, prayed it, felt it touch my heart, I wanted to share it with all of you so you would feel it too. There is so much bad going on in our world, horrible things, that when something touches us for good, I think we should share... Sign in to see full entry.

Nothing New For Me

Junk Mail from the Postman Scam calls on the Phone M inbox is empty of anything unread No delivery of flowers No neighbors in for chat Words of sharing caring, baring of the soul Just left unsaid I guess it could be that I am not putting out either.

So Says The Old Bat

When my Dad was about the age that I am now, I approached him when he was in the process of reading his Bible, which he did every day. He looked up and said to me: "You know, one day you are going to be old like me. It comes to everyone and sooner than one thinks it will. It describes it well here... Sign in to see full entry.

More Music Please

Music tends the heart when nothing else will sooth the pain caused by this world and all its woes... No, it will not cease nor go away but comes again when music's o'er. That's how it goes. A bit of respite though small it be floating, floating on music's airs, and peace one knows. Today, actually... Sign in to see full entry.

He Who He Who

I think our female maintenance man, our woman maintenance person, our fix-it lady, or whatever you would call her, must have quit. I haven't seen her around the complex for days and days. Actually, she was the maintenance supervisor with several maintenance men under her direction and tutelage. She... Sign in to see full entry.
