Speaking of childhood...

When I was around 10 or 11, I found some cartoon books that my parents had collected. PEANUTS, WIZARD OF ID, B.C., and best of all, several volumes of the work of Charles Addams. The cartoons themselves were amusing and some, laugh-out-loud funny. But the real thrill was the discovery that such... Sign in to see full entry.

Inspired by Pat B's post today

Some women resent being called by endearments by strangers, seeing it as patronizing. It depends on the tone of delivery, though. Sometimes some part of me just needs to hear the word, accept the salute in the spirit it is offered, feel for just that brief moment, a sense of being seen and... Sign in to see full entry.

Giving up your dreams...

When I was 6, I dearly wanted one of those dolls that was as big as me. I never got one. If someone gave me a life-size doll my size these days, I would be rather alarmed. The point is, while dreams are good to have, we do need to update them now and then. In fact, I have to do this often when an... Sign in to see full entry.

What is your favorite...?

Just hearing what is one of my favorite national songs, Australia's Waltzing Matilda. It isn't the national anthem--I am not sure I have ever heard that one. I hear it is grand--when sung well, which is, perhaps like the Star Spangled Banner, not usually... Sign in to see full entry.

Naming Girls, Women, Wives...

I woke this morning with a thought about how girls and women are named. Not given names, but family names: Traditionally, they are first named with their fathers' names, and then, should they marry, with their husbands' names. Have you ever thought about this? Apparently, men think about it if they... Sign in to see full entry.

As I wrote in my Ciel Show blog, my Seattle daughter and family are moving again in the next few weeks, and I have been thinking about houses they've lived in. Now I am thinking about the houses I've lived in, what I loved and miss about some of them, what made me glad to leave... So the prompt... Sign in to see full entry.

Three of Diamonds

I have lately been watching the JONATHON CREEK series from BBC. If you aren't familiar with it, the character is a guy who designs magic acts, and forensically dismantles 'impossible' crimes. In one of the last shows of the five seasons, a notoriously Bad Magician does a card trick, predicting the... Sign in to see full entry.

Something funny about that guy...

Did you watch BLACK ADDER back in the day, or perhaps, MISTER BEAN? The loose and lanky, goofy guy named Rowan Atkinson who starred in them is back. The show is a remake of MAIGRET, a French police detective in the 1950s. (If you watched it originally, it was Michael Gambon in the role.) It is often... Sign in to see full entry.

Puppy tales...

If you have visited my journal blog, you'll have the link to see Charlie's new adopted pup, Milo. Already, there are Milo stories being generated hour by hour as we discover his personality, what distracts him (everything), what gets a bark out of him (the cat Sokka who kinda thinks he himself is a...

still smiling...

Yesterday's prompt was about yesterday's rocket launch. This is carrying on from there... The launch of SpaceX's Falcon Heavy fille me with several kinds of happiness. I was thrilled to near tears to see another spectacular and important rocket launch, and especially glad to hear the cheers... Sign in to see full entry.
