Smells Like...

There is a wonderful aroma emanating from the kitchen and creeping through the vents to where I am. It is making me hungry, and it is not even close to time to be eating again. It is meatloaf baking for Ribcage. It smells so good, and I don't even care for meatloaf. Then yesterday P.D. brought me a... Sign in to see full entry.

I must warn you that this is not a real post....It is a fake one. I must also warn you that this post is completely fabricated and is designed as click bait. The information in it will not protect the innocent. Any attempt to pass it on, as is, you will find impossible to verify. I may be who this... Sign in to see full entry.

In The Year Of Extremes

Twenty-one hours ago I finished a post for this blog. Now it is already time to begin thinking about what I want to write for the next one. Posting once a day is my goal, and that often seems quite difficult for me to accomplish. I just sat down to begin when Ribcage told me that our POTUS was about... Sign in to see full entry.

Just A Number

I really hadn't realized how tired I was of numbering my sons until C_C_T asked if he could use the name "Ribcage" for the eldest. I ran that by Son and he loved it. He got a very big grin on his face and a twinkle in his eyes. It was then that I realized that I had been numbering my sons for so... Sign in to see full entry.

Ribcage It Is!

I was cleaning the celery stalks for chopping, snacking, cooking or apple/celery/nut salad, which I love and I had cut off the root end and lay it aside nearby, going on about my business when Ribcage came into the kitchen. "What's that?" he asked picking it up and studying it. "it's the celery root... Sign in to see full entry.

I'd Rather Be Named Ribcage

Many times during the hour and a half PBS National Memorial Day Concert at the Washington Monument Mall at the White House, I heard sniffles from Son #1 even as tears came to my eyes. We watched together the beautiful and touching songs, instrumentals, memorial stories, dedications, introductions... Sign in to see full entry.

I Don't Cook Much Anymore

I slow cooked a beef brisket for Memorial Day celebration eatings, and then I looked around for the Gates BBQ sauce (made in KC) for dousing the sandwiches. But, I couldn't find any--not even a partial. Someone had cleaned it out and forgot to tell me that we needed more. Not about to make a trip... Sign in to see full entry.

I Thought Old Age Was Ten Years Older Than I Am Now

I should have thought of it yesterday when it was new and vulnerable--my tail bone injury (medical term--coccyx). I should have thought immediately of ice pack, or specially formed pillow for sitting. I have both, and nursing knowledge, but all I could think of was sitting down, which was painful,...

The Fattening Room

One Minute World News of BBC yesterday covered The Fattening Rooms of Calabar and how important it is for a man of Southern Nigeria to sport a well-fed and pampered wife to show what a good husband he is. A woman there is put in a "fattening room" for up to six months, fed starchy foods, sleeps a... Sign in to see full entry.
