PATZ HATZ

GO FRIEND ME My daughter in Florida stays in touch with her friends from back home, this little town I call Mundane. A few months ago Robin had a breast cancer exam that didn’t go well and went in for follow-up, including a lumpectomy. Fortunately it wasn’t the Big C, just a wake-up call to keep her...

BLACK FRIDAY AT THE OK CORRAL

It was the kind of day where all Kari wanted to do was eat chocolate, prop her feet up and watch soap operas. She wanted the brats to go to school or with their friends to the mall – anywhere but underfoot. As for George, if he worked night every night for the foreseeable future that would suit her...

HO! HO! HO! - JINGLE ALL THE WAY

TOYS There’s a saying “The difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.” Like all clichés, there’s some truth to this statement. But toys in this the 21st Century – for boys, girls and grownups, are all quite expensive. Electronics, tech items especially. Folks want the latest version... Sign in to see full entry.

INFINITY SCARVES

RPresta commented on yesterday’s post about the infinity scarf that she didn’t know what that was. The design of it is based on a math thing called the M ö bius strip. "An example of a Möbius strip can be created by taking a paper strip and giving it a half-twist, and then joining the ends of the... Sign in to see full entry.

OLD FRIENDS AND KIND HEARTS

An old Blogit bud of mine has been on my mind in the past week or so, I’ve been wondering how he’s doing. He was one of several excellent thinkers and writers I used to follow daily until he decided Blogit was a bit too much of a good thing and no longer shared his take on the world. He used to tell...

IT’S ALL A BLUR

As “everyone” told me, the surgery was no big deal. I’ve been doing the eye drops as dr. ordered, don’t like ‘em, but there you go, do it anyway. It was kind of fun stopping by Denny’s on the way home and watching people pretending not to notice my plastic eye patch. The food was extra tasty because... Sign in to see full entry.

FUNNY YOU SHOULD ASK

While channel surfing, avoiding the college football wasteland that is weekend TV, I came across a listing “Funny you should ask.” Turns out it’s a new spin on the game show, low dollar prizes, trivia questions, and the panel is made up of stand-up comics. The MC asks a question – such as how many... Sign in to see full entry.

SCOUTING FOR FOOD

In this neck of the woods, throughout the Greater St. Louis region in Missouri and here in southern Illinois, the Boy Scouts of America do a food drive just before Thanksgiving each year. One weekend they deploy through neighborhoods and subdivisions, tying blue plastic grocery bags to doorknobs and... Sign in to see full entry.

SNOW DAY IN THE TWILIGHT ZONE

Yesterday, with unseasonal early snow everywhere, much of my little world shut down. No work break to rake leaves, no quick dash to Mickey D’s for an order of chicken strips, no story session at The Center. Just me in my jammies, a ball of yarn and cable TV. I try the news networks. They cover: the... Sign in to see full entry.
