None As Sweet As A Pluot

T he reason for the season is pie. That season is not quite ready here in Missouri, but the peaches of Frog Hollow Farm (in CA) are going strong, the juiciest peaches of all, along with the organic dapple dandy pluots. I must say, I got no pie made as the fresh fruit was way too good just eating to... Sign in to see full entry.

The Pleasure of Wasting Time

Once upon a time, time went by so slowly, as if it were in slow motion and things I awaited impatiently would never come. I didn't really worry then about accomplishments, getting things done, or wasted time. Somehow that all changed and now time is rushing on at an unbelievable speed. "Time is...

...But For Now...

I love red rocks country (Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona...). Memories fill my mind as Internet photos please my eyes and I visit once again from my rocking chair. Some details remain a bit fuzzy and others sharp and clear....and calling me, calling me to come.....come...visit just once more.... Sign in to see full entry.

His Latest Account

Two big fellows from New York dropped in here in Missouri yesterday, took me captive along with another old lady that I love, and forced us to go with them to Gates Barbeque and gorge on BBQ beef covered with Gates BBQ sauce, baked beans, French fries and an enormous amount of pickles.

Force-A-Post

I can't. I just can't. I try and and try and the harder I try the more obstinate my brain becomes to not cooperate. I just can't force a post for Blogit. There has to be some kind of inspiration involved and right now, it's just not coming. (Pause to go get a cup of coffee.) That's what's wrong with... Sign in to see full entry.

Three Years In A Row

There's nothing that Phil loves better than roasting wieners and eating them, and he likes it even better if Grandma is there, and Uncle Ribcage, and a few more loved ones. The triplet fawns show up every morning with their mom and often throughout the day. They seem to live in the wooded area at... Sign in to see full entry.

A Week After Brain Surgery

I thought you might like to know how my darling niece is doing after her drastic neurosurgery. She is fighting to get everything good back to where it was before and hoping and praying that nothing bad ever comes back again. The surgery was on the back of her head in a large, upside-down "U" shape.... Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Like Your Relatives?

According to The New York Times, seventh cousin of Donald Trump, Kallstadt, Germany, didn't want to talk about it, and another distant relative in the next village said, "You can't choose your relatives, can you?" Chances are that if you have any relatives at all there is at least one of them that... Sign in to see full entry.

The Rest Of Aleut And Gone

Eighty eight now and living in a very nice Elder Care Facility here in Missouri, Charlotte enjoys the visits of her seven great-grandchildren and silently wonders if she has great-grandchildren somewhere above the arctic circle where the Northern Lights flash across the sky, during the never-ending...

Two-Part Aleut And Gone

The evening sun is setting in the western sky, already beginning to drop beneath the horizon, sending brilliant colors of red and gold to reflect against the floating clouds. This seems to be my writing time. Seldom do I spend the morning writing--there are so many other things to do in the day. But... Sign in to see full entry.
