TAPS' Take

Wednesday, November 29, 2017


President George W. Bush sat across the table from me today at the Corner Cafe in Riverside. All he ordered was one of their famous buttermilk biscuits, no gravy, just the biscuit, and then he only took two bites. I could see him plain as day, and his entourage, even though his time and mine were... Sign in to see full entry.

Fighting In A Tent

When I was a child I thought that tents were for the circus or for a Revival. I had been to both and I liked the circus best. At the tent revival there wasn't much to see except the back of people's heads and a yelling, Bible-thumping preacher. It never occurred to me that sometime I might sleep in...

What A Mother Won't Do For A Son

I'm supposed to be receiving a book in the mail before the week is out. It is not one that I ordered, or one that I probably would have ordered, but it is coming none the less, free gratis, and signed by the author, Stephen Strang. It is being released November 7 and the title is "God And Donald... Sign in to see full entry.

O Tannenbaum

No, I did not put up my Christmas tree today (not either one of them). Actually, I haven't had a Christmas tree up in my place for over ten years....not because I don't just adore a pretty Christmas tree, not because I don't have the Christmas spirit, not because I don't have any decorations. So,... Sign in to see full entry.

Crazy Old Woman

I will have a wonderful and loving Thanksgiving but mostly by myself. Right now Ribcage and I are pretty much watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade but he is aiming for football in his room before long. He has mentioned several times that the pre-game stuff starts at 10:00. He has already told... Sign in to see full entry.

Dank, bleak, good-for-dozing day--all day long. Who needs more than hot coffee, tea and a little rhubarb-and-red-cherries preserves on a hot buttered crumpet, and a window through which to watch the world go by. Sis wanted me to go out with her for brunch, or lunch, or tea, or any reason at all but... Sign in to see full entry.

Something Just Popped Into My Head

Out of nowhere the answer came to me when I was thinking of something completely different that had nothing to do with anything. That happens to me quite often but this time it was so clear, and so many people have asked me and I could not answer them before. It just popped into my head why I had a...

No Entry

No entry have I today for Blogit posting. It seems that writing something original is impossible anymore. My head just refuses to work like it is supposed to. Writing used to be so much fun. Words seemed to drip off of my fingers, first with a pen, then with my first typewriter, later with my first... Sign in to see full entry.
