A Long Hour And Five Minutes

I was cooking Chinese for supper and the power went out. Everything we have and use is electric. The temperature 99 degrees with heat index of 110 degrees. Even our phone does not work if the computer is dead. I told Ribcage not to go out in the heat, but he was determined to find out if it was just... Sign in to see full entry.

Not Called To Demonstrate

She was simply taking her two girls, ages seven and five, on a little outing to the park for Saturday morning fresh air, sunshine and exercise when they noted that a group was rallying in the Square with signs painted with the words " BLACK LIVES MATTER! " It was a diverse group of people: All ages,... Sign in to see full entry.

So The Story Goes...And Goes...And Goes

As a human being it is impossible it seems to keep from talking about, and writing about memories, times past, long ago, and even yesterday or just a few moments before that caught my attention and made me ponder, or laugh, or cry. It is such an important part of life. I am so thankful for those who... Sign in to see full entry.

So The Story Goes...

He finished every story he told, every bit of news, every single thing he shared about anybody he knew at one time or another, with the words emphatically added, "And I'm not lying!" That ending, in its own way nagged at me that he was....perhaps telling an incident that really happened but filling... Sign in to see full entry.

On Again!

Quite a storm for a little bit, hid the bright sun and heat that began our day. Suddenly it was dark, really dark. The wind began to fiercely blow and a branch from the tree out front blew down on a pretty black car parked below, just three cars over from the car of Ribcage. I was trying to watch...

Just A Little Off

On my July 4th post here I mentioned that it was time for me to get my driver's license renewed. I've been thinking about that and today, since Sis and I were going to go out to lunch together to get caught up on our visiting we decided that first we would stop at the DMV so I could take care of...

Age Related?

Disarray--the place in which I find anything in or on my desk, my bookshelf, my mind, my computer, my purse.... "Knowledge has stretched itself to the point where neither the world, nor our intelligence, can find any foothold..." ~ someone said that but I can't find the little slip of paper on which...

Pretty Feet

"You have pretty feet," he said out of the blue. I was taken aback. We are talking old feet here, old feet on old legs, holding up an old saggy body and crepe-skin arms with blue vein hands, bags under my eyes and always a whisker here and a whisker there needing to be plucked. I was speechless for... Sign in to see full entry.

Driving Miss TAPS

Only ten minutes left of today (the 4th) and the fireworks are still booming furiously, loud, and sharp, I'm sure the poor doggies will be so glad when the humans are tired of messing around with them and decide to give it up for this celebration. July is my month--the month in which I was born.... Sign in to see full entry.

I Don't Know Whether To Write This Or Not

I've always been a person who leans to the positive side in life, who holds fast to the right, and am thankful for what I have rather than wishing for something I have not. I'm afraid though, that some who might read it will see it as a complaining post, a sad writing, a whining epistle wishing for... Sign in to see full entry.
