Big V Mumbles About Something

Thursday, December 27, 2018

I just added another 750 to the opening salvo of "The House at 407." If you read it earlier, take another look to see where the story has gone now. This story has a lot of information to lay down in a quick hurry, and the goal is to do it in such a way that it doesn't become pedantic. I have roughly... Sign in to see full entry.

It's snowing heavily on and off today and should turn to rain soon. The temp is about 30, but we have a 25 mph wind, making it absolutely lovely outside. /sarcasm The wind is howling and the main floor has a cold draft that seems to come from everywhere, even through the door itself. The basement on... Sign in to see full entry.

How I Spent My Christmas Day

After I posted my material here per my morning wont, I decided that I couldn't spend my Christmas here, so I loaded up the dogs and we made the 35 minute trip up to the upper Tahquamenon Falls. There were a lot more people there than I had anticipated, but the place is huge, and 'we' went for a walk... Sign in to see full entry.

Christmas Morning Musings

I stood outside last night until about 2 AM, watching the sky here in the UP. The night was wonderfully clear with a huge full moon that rose in the east and made its way to the southern sky. The stars were not to be outdone by the moon, and they punctuated the darkness as crisp stabs of light. It... Sign in to see full entry.

Merry Christmas!

I just stepped outside for what I hope is the last time tonight with the dogs. There is a huge full moon filling the eastern sky, and the stars are shining brightly despite the glow of the moon. As I ponder the night and its meaning to me, I can't help but wonder if it wasn't a night like this some... Sign in to see full entry.

Things

Pay no attention to the blathering of the man stuck in the middle of the snow covered place in previous places. It's Christmas and my emotions are high right now. I just posted the poem I told you that would come with the rest of the story. This was my first serious attempt to do prose in one of my... Sign in to see full entry.

It seems that the Post Office, the bank, and even some of the local stores all wanted to close early, and I don't blame them. Of all the holidays we have, Christmas is my most sacred and favored. I had a lot of 'monkey' business to attend, so I haven't even sat down to do much more than make a... Sign in to see full entry.

My Grown Up Christmas List

This is one of my first for public videos I ever made back in 2001 for some friends who live in Brooklyn, NY as the first Christmas post the disaster there in Manhattan. It is a collage of photos set to one of my favorite songs, My Grown Up Christmas List. I hope you enjoy it. Sign in to see full entry.

I was up late last night, but not writing anything. I got a call about ten PM from a friend who has been living alone for the last fifteen years. Lonely and lost, we talked until about 2 AM. I don't see how people can see someone who desperately needs help and keep walking by them, looking the other... Sign in to see full entry.

The word of the day is "Cold." "Windy" is the runner up. I was in the hardware store looking to buy a roll of wire for a project, and happened to mention that I had moved to my basement for the winter. I was taken back a bit when the man there told me that probably half of Newberry had done the same... Sign in to see full entry.
