Paid To Quit

I've been paid to stay at a job, but I've never been paid to quit. Apparently (so it says on the Internet) that Amazon pays employees $5000 to quit working there. That's a new one on me, but then, I'm sure I'm way behind the times. After they are paid to quit, they can never work for Amazon again.... Sign in to see full entry.

I Really Am Old

I really am old, aren't I? I don't see myself that way in my mind. Most of the time I don't feel that way. But, looking at me...and my Grandson Peter...and my Great-grandbaby Vivienne, I have to ask, "Who is that old lady in the picture? I think I like her. She looks like my Grandma Jelinek did the...

One Of A Kind

What better day to think about the past, to write about the past, to talk about the past? What better time to remember the past, than Mothers Day? That is especially true if you had a good match--What I mean by that is a match made in heaven. That term is usually referring to a husband and wife, but... Sign in to see full entry.

Letter To A Far Away Loved One

"Darling One. Auntie Nila stopped by a bit ago. I greeted her with my usual happiness at her visits. She is such a sweetie. But somewhere into her visit, the atmosphere changed from sunshine to tears. How can this be? It was supposed to be "happy ever after" after your last bout with hospitals and...

I Lied

I bought myself a Mothers Day present. It comes tomorrow. I'm hoping to get it installed and put together and used the first time without anybody noticing. When my sons, at various times, asked me, "What do you want for Mothers Day, I lied and said, "I don't want anything. I have everything I want."... Sign in to see full entry.

The Runaway

I never ran away from home, never had a desire to do so--at least not until I was married and had four growing active children. No, it was not the children that made me want to disappear, make a new life elsewhere. It was their father who had changed, or seemed to. Actually I don't really think he...

Storm Time

When the tornadoes come through Kansas and Missouri every evening and the sky is threatening and sirens blow, we know May is here. It is the beginning of a long season of watching. Watching, waiting, worrying (the three W's). Most people watch on the TV weather channels. Some people watch the sky.... Sign in to see full entry.

They Say Party Hearty

I did over the weekend, party hearty that is, and I guess it was too much for me. Since California Jeri flew back to L.A. I seemed to fall apart. I guessed I used up all of my energy while she was here. I don't know where she gets all of her energy to go, go, go, go. She has old age inconveniences... Sign in to see full entry.

He Must Have been Hungry

All the signs of spring are in the air and beauty is everywhere. I can't help but watch with fascination the things of nature being what they are and doing what they do. A little sparrow sat upon the banister surrounding my porch. Very quietly was he sitting in the sun. Not singing or chirping, just... Sign in to see full entry.

Closed For The Day

An early morning Scrabble Chat found two old ladies (me and Sis) not only playing computer Scrabble but also making plans for the day with Jeri (friend from CA) putting in her ideas from in front of the news channel on the TV. So far, what seems to be a sure thing is migrating to Sis' place for a... Sign in to see full entry.
