How to Avoid Spending $70.00 Each Time

Every day I stop at Walmart. We always need something, and I always wind up spending $70. So today, with my account at a low level, six days out from payday, I decided to think ahead. I decided that I would only buy things I absolutely needed. Not wanted. Needed. Big difference. Wants 1. New socks... Sign in to see full entry.

You Never (or Rarely) Walk Alone

There is a certain joy in the early morning darkness. For one, I feel well rested. Protected from the wind and cold precipitation, I stand and listen to the sounds of the furnace. I sit down at the kitchen table and read the headlines. The trees' bony and black limbs present naked to the sky outside... Sign in to see full entry.

The Morning After -- Oh My Gosh!

I read today in the paper that John McCain, with no transition team to appoint, walked to Starbucks for his morning coffee. Imagine, you have the freedom to do as you please; you have your health; you have a beautiful world to experience and think about, or write about; you have a beautiful woman...

My Morning So Far

I was greeted this morning at the drug store by, among other fantasies of the recenly deranged, a one-armed man and a hot Asian lady in short shorts and running shoes. Taking my daughter to work at the hospital I was reminded of why I was able to settle down in Des Moines. We passed Owen Crist body... Sign in to see full entry.

Blogger Makes Way for the Inexorable March of Time

I experienced a senior moment today. Or several. I got up early and had a beautiful hot shower thinking, it's Friday! Go for coffee. I got my right foot successfully through the leg hole of my boxers, only slightly confident that it was the right one. But my left foot hung up. I bouncd on one foot... Sign in to see full entry.

Back Home Again

How we enjoyed our four days in paradise. On the last day, around noon, I sat in the sun with a glass of Starbucks. The sun baked my face for ten minutes and I could really feel it. On the return flight there was a tall handsome man, talking non-stop, evidently a drinker. He knew more about the... Sign in to see full entry.

Benzhina, Thanks for a Wonderful Cyber-Visit in Tucson

We are at the Tucson Airport again, this time checking the rental car in. What a wonderful weekend! My eldest daughter said that it was her best vacation in recent memory. I take that as a real, the supreme, compliment. Now we are going through security again. I expect to have to remove my shoes and... Sign in to see full entry.

A Mother Spends Her Life Caring for her Children

Another night under the stars out back, the mountains unable to contain the forces of the moon. First a halo of light behind the peaks of the Santa Catalinas, then, too soon, the appearance. It told us we were earlier than the night before. More precious time alfresco in the desert night. I changed... Sign in to see full entry.

Rancho Alfresco, Tucson, Arizona

As we were leaving the hotel yesterday we met our beloved and dear cousins from Texas. These are the daughters and grandchildren of our departed brother, John. We drove in tandem, three cars, thirteen cousins, and arrived at the party the last ones. Meatballs and spaghetti all around, then outside... Sign in to see full entry.

We Made it to the Hotel

And a nice one it is. Swimming pools, movie stars. I now want the gals to pack up so we can make the dinner. But they want to play around the pool. What do I expect, that's what they've always done since they were little kids. Get to the motel and go swimming. Get this: a hundred Italian meatballs... Sign in to see full entry.
