I Used To Be Whistled At

Now it's, Vrrrooom, Vrrrooom and, "Hey Granny, get a move on it!" Making a stop at QuickTrip on a beautiful Saturday afternoon can be a bit harrowing with vehicles continually in and out, people who never signal, and you are not sure what they want to do. If I'm not sure, I do not take chances. I'm... Sign in to see full entry.

After All, This Is A Journal

It seems that, after all these years, I still have not really focused on what kind of journal this is. I figured it would be good to evaluate what I have in this blog to see if it meets any kind of standards for the word "Journal". It would seem, from the title of this "journal", "TAPS' Take," that...

Stymied By An Unknown Quantity

My driver's license came due on my 80 th birthday. I decided to get it out of the way ahead of time, so I went yesterday. First off, I will say, that, yes, I did pass the things that one must do on the examination in order to pass, but there were a few aggravating moments, my new photo for one of...

SURPRISE--And, Not A Good One

I found out just today that my Grandson Michael was not deployed to Kuwait the way I was told that he probably would be. Instead, I have another Grandson deployed to Afghanistan. I was so glad when Grandson Peter completed his last deployment to Afghanistan and came home safely. Now, we are doing it... Sign in to see full entry.

Dizzy Daisy

Well, this is one of those days that I have now and then where the dizzies take over suddenly and stay with me for the rest of the day. It does it all of a sudden, usually if I'm bending over or something like that. It made me think of way back when I was young and Daddy was real firm about not... Sign in to see full entry.

Happy Canada Day to Wiley, Kabu, Nautikos, adnohr, Celine Dion, k.d.lang, gomedome and anyone that I can't think of living in Canada. It is a great place to be alive. When I think of Canada, I see the movie Rose-Marie with Jeanette MacDonald & Nelson Eddy singing Indian Love Call. Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Worry/Be Happy

I have so much for which to be thankful. I try to count my blessings everyday but the list gets longer and longer. When I have what looks like a problem, most often what comes from that problem is some kind of blessing. No, I'm not going to start naming them off to you, but I am going to tell you...

Plans For Doing

He slept beneath the moon, he basked beneath the sun; he lived a life of going to do and died with nothing done. ~ James Albery I always have good intentions for tomorrow. I decide before I go to bed at night what I am going to do when the sun rises on the morrow and I crawl out of bed. I plan when... Sign in to see full entry.

The Tech Doofus

I know that I should not label myself with derogatory terms, but sometimes I get so put out with myself when I don't take time to do things right and later find myself messed up because of my lack of attention. I think I was just born too long ago to be a tech whiz. I still use my mind, my fingers... Sign in to see full entry.

A Day Of Crying

"Tears are words the heart can't express." It has been a long time since I have cried tears of real sorrow, but today as the storm hit and the rain fell in heavy torrents, washing the cars, filling the ditches, running into the sewer drainage carrying flotsam and jetsam away, it was as if God...
