Ol’ man Simon, planted a diamond. Grew hisself a garden the likes

of none. Sprouts all growin’ comin’ up glowin’. Fruit of jewels all shinin’ in the sun.Colors of the rainbow. See the sun and the rain grow sapphires and rubies on ivory vines. Grapes of jade, just ripenin’ in the shade, just ready for the squeezin’ into green jade wine. -Shel Silverstein I thought... Sign in to see full entry.

I Will Never Understand the Obsession with the Reality TV People!

I use as one of my news sources and a homepage. But, for the life of me I cannot understand the obsession with the reality TV stars, as it were. I personally could care less what the Jenners or Kardashian’s are doing or what black guy they are currently married to or dating. Then there’s the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Heartbreak of Watching For Four Hours Only to see it Gone!

I started watching the Tigers’ baseball game at 2:00 p.m. Mountain time today. It’s 6:12 p.m. now and the closer threw the game away! I had a bad feeling about it since he did the same thing last night! They should have swept the Oakland A’s but they leave town with a 1-2 record. The A’s had been... Sign in to see full entry.

Where in the World is sam444! LOL! Missing, Just Like Carmen Sandiego...

I just realized it has been 12 days since I last posted to my blog! There really isn’t any good reason for it but I have either been busy or down with a migraine. The migraines seem to be more frequent of late! And, I must say it’s not what I would like to be dealing with! Jessica and Chris ordered... Sign in to see full entry.

Some Really Great News Came My Way This Afternoon! And Two-Fold!

The first great news deserves top billing! My son, Christopher, called a few minutes ago and asked me if I could keep a secret! I said, “When is Lindsey due?” LOL! I was right, baby number two is expected around December 10 of this year! LOL! Better be this year or YIKES for her! The second great... Sign in to see full entry.

Big Party at my Son’s House Today! I Declined to Attend!

My son, Mik, and his wife are having a 4/20 party today! I was asked to make potato salad. I was happy to do as much! I am not one to celebrate the big pot smoke out day! I do use pot to control the pain of my migraines. Luckily the weather is cold and rainy so I could decline to attend without... Sign in to see full entry.

It was the Best of Times, It was the Worst of Times, It was the Age…

I’ve always adored the opening paragraph of “Tale of Two Cities” by Dickens. It ranks among the very best for me! For some reason the first part seems to fit my life at this moment! The best of times are looking forward to the upgrades in my house and my daughter’s house. I am set for my financing... Sign in to see full entry.

I Wonder Why The Same People Are The Only Ones Who Leave Comments!

I have been back on Blogit for a few months now and rather amazed that the same people day after day are the only ones commenting! I see many posts but so many of them do not comment but certainly thank those who come to their blog! I know it’s ‘to each his own’ but one would think that folks who... Sign in to see full entry.

My Boys of Summer are off to a Great start! Go Tigers!

Opening day for my Tigers was rained out yesterday! They had an open date today and the game was made up! They won 6-3. Justin Verlander, Kate Upton’s finance, (LOL), got the win. Jacoby Jones, a rookie, got his first career home run! A 3 run shot at that to put Detroit ahead and they never looked... Sign in to see full entry.
