Walker & Wheelchair Fun

Kicked out! Back in the day when I was still working as a nurse, I did a stint in a healthcare center where most of the clients/patients were geriatrics, but..... most of the time they acted like "kids". So many of them had "girlfriends" there, or boyfriends and they acted more like teenagers often.... Sign in to see full entry.

Four Years Ago Today...

Old age is an ordeal, of flesh and mind. Of winding down, of slowing down, of dying cells. It's accepting the loss of physical attractiveness and replacing it with the power and wisdom that can only come with old age. ~ Colleen McCullough I'm learning this.....gradually. I still don't feel old on... Sign in to see full entry.

Interacting With Statues

Just in case you have never looked up my Blogit member profile, you can see that by the time I discovered Blogit I was already gray and wrinkled and a bit crazy. It was about that time I began adding color to my hair and fun to my work schedule. Blogit and Blogit members added so much fun to my... Sign in to see full entry.

It Came From An Exumas Cay

I thought you might get a kick out of it. My boss wouldn't give me another month off after going to Europe so Sis and I took a shorter cruise and went to the Bahamas. One stop was an island/cay where the Bahamians had lots of outdoor shopping for tourists. I bought this bit of native drag and when... Sign in to see full entry.

Adult Entertainment For Taps

This is me when I first joined Blogit. I had been here about six months before I took a trip to Spain and France. After I got back home I made him this apron because his manhood was more obvious than my face. I have spent a lot of time at Blogit since then. I've always loved being a part of what...

I Made A Mistake Once--I Told Somebody

A peripatetic at eighty-five has her benefits and her woes. It keeps one limber to move about and embellishes strength there is no doubt... but what if she falls on her nose? Her nose? Her nose? But what if she falls on her nose? Such a casualty could cause her pain and sudden peripaty it's certain... Sign in to see full entry.

Don't Touch the Hairy Vines

I don't remember ever getting poison ivy rash, but I was scared of it. Even at at early age, I saw some awful cases of family members turning from beautiful people that I loved to awful looking red, swollen, blistered, drippy, "monsters" that were terribly uncomfortable and not the person I knew or...

We Just Didn't Have Whatever It Took

Goldiec posted this picture on Facebook. I really, really like it. I love Christmas and Christmas music especially if it is played on a piano by a person who really plays well. It reminded me of something from the past. When I was growing up, I desperately wanted to learn to play a piano, but....we... Sign in to see full entry.

What Can I Say?

I thought I might as well try looking at all of the Categories of Blogit to see if I have been missing something. The first on the list is Antiques & Collectibles. I see nothing has been written there recently--like this year. And, only once last year, and once the year before that. I haven't much... Sign in to see full entry.

The Ankle Bracelet Conundrum

The hour is getting late and I am beginning to yawn repeatedly, but out of the past came to me a childhood memory transported via Sis and her dealings thru eBay. Several times in past years Sis has helped people sell jewelry on eBay because she is good at it and very efficient in photographing and... Sign in to see full entry.
