Several months ago I was at Target when I happened to bump into a young woman who’d been my son’s high school sweetheart. She’d broken up with him at some point not long after graduation. It happened to be a time when my own marriage was dissolving. Rich and his older brother soon left for Dallas,... Sign in to see full entry.

It seems there’s no end to the devilment nature can devise to prove the big-brained species (humans) ain’t all that wise, As fire and fury fall about their ears Some hunker in place, the silly dears. Even small folk from forest and glen realize they must go, they quickly ken the need to flee has... Sign in to see full entry.

Someone in Florida, several years ago, built a magnificent tree house on their property. There were no zoning rules against it at the time, and later on, when the local powers-that-be did legislate against such structures, the owners contended that their tree house pre-dated the law and was thus...

It was 50 years ago when the Otis Redding hit, “Sittin’ on the dock of the bay” was released. It’s a song people can relate to, anybody who’s ever put all their eggs in the basket but haven’t seen the payoff they’d hoped for, or people dealing with stress who just need a break. Just being on the... Sign in to see full entry.

A couple weeks ago at The Center I had a conversation with Milton’s daughter Angie, who at forty-seven had to give up her job and go on disability because of arthritis and fibromyalgia – a painful combo if ever there was one. She told me her doctor suggested she go to one of those shops they’ve... Sign in to see full entry.

“Tell me you love me, (tell me a lie) when you say forever I hear your goodbye. When you say forever your heart will be true, I’ll know the moment when I’m losing you.” It was my secret little song, never sung aloud. It came to me one morning over the dishpan.

On the same day my damaged check arrived, came a large envelope from my daughter in Florida. When I opened it, I found an unusual little gift: a dish towel. I laughed out loud even before I looked at it. Now years ago after her dad and I split up he went on to marry a woman the kids did not like.... Sign in to see full entry.

I’ve had this small annuity savings account since I retired and almost never think about it except to read the quarterly reports. It was one of those yo-yo things a dozen or so years ago when the Enron scandal hit and many folks lost their life savings. I only lost about one-third of the savings had...

I know “blogability” is not a dictionary word, but it’s kind of how we compulsive bloggers look at the vagaries of daily life. When something happens to tickle our funny-bone, to cast a light of understanding on human nature, or even a cautionary episode - we add it to our mental checklist of stuff...

It is probably no surprise to anyone on Blogit that we’re having a cold spell here in beautiful downtown Mundane. Minus zero temps have not been a thing here for at least four years, and there’s been a rash of broken water lines in the St. Louis area, chill factors way below zero. Today our low temp...
