Disappointed Expectations

Keep calm. I don't see any last-day-of-the-year rebound. I think it will be more of the same tomorrow. Remember when it was the rollover of the Millennium-- 1999 ended and the year 2000 began, expectations were so varied and some people were afraid of what was going to happen? Y2K it was called, and... Sign in to see full entry.

Smart & Ready

I've spent the whole afternoon getting ready for, and watching the last regular football game for the CHIEFS. It was worth it--a great game and we won mightily and without any problem. Our Kansas City team is now what they call First Seed (I don't really know what that means). But, it is fun to be... Sign in to see full entry.

This Is Still Me

This is what I am at heart: pigtails, hair bow, freckles, smiles, hopscotch, tree-climbing, licking the cake dough from the beaters, playing with the kitty and the chickens, and my roller skates. Only my facade has changed, and my size and weight, and the things that I can do now. Christmas to me in... Sign in to see full entry.

When...Ah When...I'll Be There Waiting

The Age Of Poignancy

Birthdays don't mean much to Ribcage. Today is his, but when he finally came out of his room for a cup of coffee today, he acknowledged my Happy Birthday wishes with a grunt that if it was a word, I couldn't tell what. To anyone who asked, he has been calling himself 58 ever since the year 2018... Sign in to see full entry.

Life's Like That

A day ago Jan, a well-liked resident of Sis's apartment complex for senior citizens, was teaching her class for Chair Yoga at their apartment in the activities room, as usual. The next day Sis exited her apartment and found a line of unkempt and upset old ladies standing like a line of vultures down... Sign in to see full entry.

To Embrace Sadness

".....and should my memory fail so that I remember no more, I think that day the gentle rain will fall as tears, in longing for the company that we kept." ~ TAPS A sadness sits upon my head, and weighs upon my heart....a sadness that will not go away with the reading of Blogit bits, or the playing...

Tell Me A Story

The small farms on the south side of Richmond, MO in those years were the Bohemian Czechs. In fact, going south on Camden Road were many Jelinek families all kin. There were three families with a Rose Jelinek and they were all cousins. There was Rose (my mom), Big Rose, and Little Rose called Rosie.... Sign in to see full entry.
