Below The Sod

I just ate the best tomato. It was luscious. I cut it up in small cubes, drizzled it with EVOO, sprinkled it with lemon pepper seasoning, dried oregano, and grated Romano cheese. I was going to save it for game time, but I made the mistake of tasting it and then I couldn't stop. I can't believe I... Sign in to see full entry.

Life Without Talking

After 28 years, Grandson Phil still cannot talk. Not one word can he say. Sometimes I can tell that he wants to talk so badly, but body language, signs that he has adopted with his hands, and expression, are the only ways he can communicate. Sometimes, they are just not enough for him. There is... Sign in to see full entry.

Remember Show & Tell

Acorn tree we called it then, or simply, "The Big Tree". We had no idea it was a magnificent oak-- quercus veluntina with shiny leaves and a multitude of acorns to draw the red squirrels. It was there beneath the tree one beautiful autumn day in October that I finally learned to walk again,... Sign in to see full entry.

Rocking Blue Kansas City

Kansas City is rocking tonight...as they did 29 years ago...but I think perhaps even moreso. Perhaps it just seems to be moreso because I am 29 years older than the last time we were World-Series bound and now I'm a bit more sedate, though just as happy and excited that "The Boys In Blue" took "The...

October Zest

"Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest." ~ Christian Dior Zest is what I feel in October--every year. I see it in the colors. I feel it in the air. I taste it in the seasons bounty I hear it everywhere... children's laughter and squeals as they play in... Sign in to see full entry.

Disney World is celebrating Halloween by expanding its annual after-hours Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party to 26 select nights in the Magic Kingdom between September 1 and October 31, 2014. That's the real reason that Son #3 and Grandson Phil went to Florida. Oh yes, he loves visiting his... Sign in to see full entry.

A Blogit Mariner's Tale

Having convinced myself to finance this voyage, as tapsel-teerie, I departed the mainland of wishful thinking on February 28, 2004. I made port without incident in a small land populated with busy natives who paid me not the slightest attention for quite some time. After all these years, there are a... Sign in to see full entry.

Justi Says Repost

I must obey Justi, so here is one I wrote from an October of years past: While We Can When nothing pleasures as the hue of sunny days and skies of blue with crackling leaves of bronze and gold, your step with mine, your hand to hold as autumn's treasures all unfold for us to view. To stay inside... Sign in to see full entry.

Not Since 1985

I must say that I looked a little bit better in 1985, but the years take their toll. During that Playoff Season and World Series lots of family still lived and still lived in Kansas City. My parents were great Royal's fans. My mother was totally in love with George Brett. We would gather in... Sign in to see full entry.
