Ut Is My Limit

I began singing in the church choir just about the time that the oldest member of the choir was sandbagged in the face on a dark night on his way home from choir practice. He only lived three blocks from the church so he always walked. Also his eyes were not good enough for driving any longer at age... Sign in to see full entry.

Shall I Try Again Or Not

Spent all of my writing time and energy on a subject I love and just when I had it the way I wanted, I lost it. I never learn. I don't think I will try again on that subject right now. Another thing I lost today is the use of my Subaru. We have so much in common, Suby and I. I know not what is the... Sign in to see full entry.

Growing Grawlix Utilization

In cartoons and comics, and other places where certain words are not allowed, profanity is often depicted by substituting symbols for words ("grawlixes") Profanity was once condemned, at least in my family. A child using profanity would now and then have the mouth washed out with soap, or the paddle... Sign in to see full entry.

Empty Pages

My Blogit Subscription Auto-Notify woke me up today and called to my mind the fact that if I'm buying another year of membership, I should be more faithful in reading my fellow members, commenting on their work, and make more of an effort to write and post. I have become so lax in showing up here... Sign in to see full entry.

Angel Baby

Today is Grandson Phil's birthday. He is my first and oldest grandchild. Today he is 32 years old. He is so fun to be around when he knows that he is the center of attention. I could not be around him today because I have been fighting a fairly mild case of the flu...not as bad as it probably would... Sign in to see full entry.

Until Spring

"Perhaps I am a bear, or some hibernating animal underneath, for the instinct to be half asleep all winter is so strong in me." ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh At the moment I am awake, at least half awake, but it is too cold to go outside, and really, there is no place I want to go. The snow is to begin... Sign in to see full entry.

The Largest Vug I Ever Did See

I think of it now and then, and wonder if it is still there undisturbed in its pristine glory, hiding in its crevasse until the sun hit the exact spot to flash a brilliant light back into my eyes for just a moment. Only once a day was the time right for the special event. I don't remember which of... Sign in to see full entry.

The Good And The Bad Of Leasing

This was the last day that we could turn in all of the signed lease papers for another year. That was bad enough. Then, without warning, the maintenance supervisor and another maintenance man turned up to start repairing the things that I had to list as needing repair/fixing/renewing from the years...

Spring Merch

Already on the shelves, in catalogs, on the Internet and customers can't wait to buy it and to start wearing it and begin decorating with it. My favorite Spring Merch that I've seen so far is a throw pillow that I just love. I don't have it yet but it is on order. I'm not sure yet whether I'm going... Sign in to see full entry.

Can He Do It?

Well, I'm not sure how this one is going to turn out, but I assume for the betterment of all.....maybe. Ribcage is now 57 and has been smoking since before he was an adult (hiding it from us until he reached 18). His amount of smoking (and drinking) was exacerbated during the years that he was in...
