Son Is Back In Town

I haven't seen him yet as he arrived late, and tired, and needing rest and sleep. It was a long tiring trip and Phil's presence did not make it easier, though the two of them are used to traveling together and Son is a pro at taking care of him wherever they are. When they travel, they pull a small... Sign in to see full entry.

It Is Here Again

It is past ten p.m. and dark outside and the time of the firecracker has come again....not one at a time being lit with a pop here and there, but whole packages going loudly and laughing voices of those having fun. Next, the sounds of police sirens getting louder, and running, hiding, laughing of... Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Worry, Be Happy!

Years ago, when I was new to Blogit and not yet used to all the in's and out's provided here, I got a real chewing out from a Blogit member that I really liked because I was writing everything in the category of "Journal" without really thinking about it. I got on a jag of writing fiction, like a... Sign in to see full entry.

'Tween Child & Adult

Summer Camp was the big subject when Megan called to let Grandma know that Uncle Stephen and Phil had arrived safe and sound at their home in Florida. "I haven't seen them yet. They arrived in the middle of the night and are asleep in their camper instead of waking us up." She quickly went on to... Sign in to see full entry.

Especially Songs to Sing

Where I walk today the sun shines bright and clear the clouds have disappeared as if they have something better to do along the way, for someone else. Where I walk today the shades of green catch my eye, each in its own tint and tone sing to me of happy birds, and scrambling squirrels intent upon... Sign in to see full entry.

Few and Far Between

There was a day when my comings and goings, entertainments, traveling, partying, celebrating, and such like were pretty much continuous, and a day at home totally boring. Except for a good book to lose myself in the reading, I would be pacing the floor. The years have passed, and with the passing... Sign in to see full entry.

I Just Don't Know...

I really don't know a lot of things, in spite of reading stuff, watching the news, conversing with people who think they know everything...I for one just do not know. But, I think. One can think they know, talk like they know, insist that they know, and what they just "know that they know" can be... Sign in to see full entry.

What's In The Pot Today?

I'm tired today. It is not the day that makes me tired, it's a glorious day.... a singing day. But, every day I feel a little more tired than the day before. It is something within me that brings out the weary feeling. It couldn't possibly have anything to do with aging, could it? Could I be winding... Sign in to see full entry.

Coffee Needed Here

Slow here today. I haven't even had my coffee yet. I am missing the aroma and the taste and the act of sipping on the hot stuff. It is a morning ritual for me. Actually, I have coffee in my cabinet, three kinds of home roasted good stuff. I just need to get my act together and make a pot to get me... Sign in to see full entry.

I Stopped Travelling When I Quit Driving

Son P.D. is readying his van and his camper for a trip down to Florida with Phil to visit his Brother "Preacher" and his family for a Father's Day get together. He is mowing his lawn, and anything he can think of that he needs to do before they go. I, of course, am invited to go with them, but, I... Sign in to see full entry.
