Bill For $5,000

The bill that P.D. (son #3) received today was from the Insurance Company of his next-door neighbor. Apparently a relative of theirs parked his sports car on son's side of the street in the shade of a tree growing at the edge of his property. That was the day of the last really bad rainstorm with...

We Are All Humans

I came here with something on my mind to share with you. Quick as a flash it left me, leaving not a clue of what it might have been. It will do no good to wrack my brain trying to remember. I'm sure it will not return until I have shut down my computer and am very comfortably seated in front of the... Sign in to see full entry.

Stool Week

I know not which day it will be for us, but our apartment complex, with recently-changed owners in charge, decided it was important to update the bathrooms by installing new toilets and shower heads in every space. That seems like an impossible task to finish in one week, Monday through Friday. It... Sign in to see full entry.

Enamorado

"Goodness becomes grandeur Surpassing might of kings. Halos of kindness Brighter shine Than crowns of gold, And brighter Than rich diamonds Sparkles The simple dew Of love" ~ Langston Hughes In this day and age, goodness seems to be waning, kindness often scarce. And love?.... Where does love go... Sign in to see full entry.

After The Fact

"If to do were as easy as to know what were good to do, chapels had been churches, and poor men’s cottages princes’ palaces." ~ Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice Did you ever work long and hard to create something that was perfect in your imagined plans and expectations just to end up rending it...

I Took A Test

I've always prided myself in being good in English classes and all it entails, but I think I must have let myself slip. It wasn't that I couldn't spell. It wasn't that I didn't know my grammar, couldn't punctuate properly, couldn't express myself. It wasn't that I couldn't analyze, it was my pride I... Sign in to see full entry.

Isn't That The Way!

I used to count the days, consider all the ways, make lots of plans, think about the tans, talk with my honey, save up the money, couldn't hardly wait to arrive at the gate suitcases loaded until baggage exploded..... but now that I'm on permanent vacation, I don't want to go anywhere at all. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Yesterday Flood/Today Mud

Among those water rescues of victims caught up in yesterday's extensive flooding from the record-breaking multiple deluges experienced this month was a poor little half-drowned chipmunk. (I didn't even know we had them in the area but I'm finding out we do indeed.) It was so soaked that I couldn't... Sign in to see full entry.

Another Five Inches--Wow!

As if we hadn't already had enough for now, another cloudburst came upon us around 7:00 p.m. and lasted until well past 10:00 and poured upon us another five inches of rain. Plus the meteorologists are telling us it is going to do it again before morning. So.......it came inside again some way in... Sign in to see full entry.

Win Some/Lose Some

Yes, it's definitely a cliché, and I know that clichés are frowned upon when one is writing, but I like clichés. They are comfortable to me. I feel at home with them if they are used in appropriate places. Usually, this one is used only when one has lost. I never hear a winner of anything stating... Sign in to see full entry.
