TAPS' Take

Friday, August 3, 2018


Celebrating Birthdays wears me out. That is not just because I am old and tired anyway. They have never been a favorite pastime of mine, though they have been an important part of family life.... and I have a lot of family. The end of July and the beginning of August is the time of year for a lot of... Sign in to see full entry.

Suicide Sometimes Runs In Families

Warning: You may not want to read this. Today is Preacher's birthday (my Son #2). He lives in Florida so I will not be celebrating with him in person, but my heart, my love, my thoughts, my best wishes and my memories are with him. This last year has been very hard on him. It has been months since... Sign in to see full entry.

The Little White Lie To Keep From Hurting Someone's Feelings

Some people have the worst taste in clothing. I could care less if they are wearing the clothes themselves. But when someone buys me something for my birthday, thinking what a beauty it is, and that it will look wonderful on me, and are so proud of their choice, and I just hate it, and they can't...

What's Going On?

It isn't just Blogit that has lost participants. It seems to be a trend these days. Facebook has had a difficult year with lack of user growth, stagnant user base, and just plain running out of people. Twitter reports a million-fewer users. And, when people do visit blogs now and then, 43% of the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Last Day Of Eighty

Life either goes on and on....or else it doesn't. If it does, it continuously changes. Last evening I spent quite a bit of time on one of those Internet sites where you click on one person at a time. It was a site with pictures of aged celebrities still living and active, and their present looks... Sign in to see full entry.

The traffic downtown is a tangled, unmoving mess! President Trump is supposed to arrive at our airport in an hour from now for a five-hour visit to Kansas City to speak at the VFW Convention for a half hour, a luncheon with those who are willing to fork out $10,000 support, and then fly away again....

No Duck Boat For Me

Those ungainly-looking things never called to me even though I've always loved water and spent time in lakes, pools, streams, oceans, bays, ponds, gulfs, rivers, creeks, and waterfalls. Somehow it didn't surprise me too greatly that a duck boat went down in Table Rock Lake Saturday evening taking... Sign in to see full entry.

Gossip Is As Gossip Does

The place where Kansas City Sis lives is a place for people 65 and older to live. It is a place where just about 95% of the residents are female. As you can imagine, the women residents' major topic of conversation is the few men that reside in the establishment. The men are quite voraciously... Sign in to see full entry.

Exhilarating Summertime

Seventy years ago it was hot in July...just as hot as it is now...hotter I do believe. It is hard to tell because then we didn't have air/conditioning....an oscillating window fan at night for sleep-aid was about the best we could do. We didn't have TV or computers and I don't remember people... Sign in to see full entry.

Please Don't Bring Me An Avozilla

"Can I get you anything at the store while I'm there?" asks P.D. quite often, always the solicitous son. I'm learning to say no when it comes to fruits and vegetables. He is just not picky enough for me (grabs up anything without inspecting it), and he just cannot get it through his head that though... Sign in to see full entry.
