An Old Winter Legend

Three Days of the Crow (Tre Gioni della Merla) We all know how cold the weather has been in certain areas of late, so in hopes of things warming up a bit, I thought I'd post this old Italian legend, saying the last three days of January leading into the first of February are the coldest days of the...

"All the Ladies Carried Guns in their Purses!

A Quote from my Sis... A few years ago Sis and I were discussing certain relatives who had lived in another state. We both contributed comments, each giving our take on what we had heard over the years about the goings on back in the day, the "day" being the early part of the 20th century. Sis pops...

This is really true.

Well, Almost! When I was a little girl, and even through my teen years, I'd hear relatives talking about other people they knew. The same names kept popping up, but neither I nor my cousins ever saw these people. Every time I asked who they were, the answer was always the same, "Oh, they're... Sign in to see full entry.

"The best laid schemes of mice and men..."

"What ill did poor mousie e'er do to you? " About " To a Mousie... " Since it's Robert Burns Day, at least for a few hours yet in these parts, I thought I'd share the backstory of one of Burns' most famous poems, " To a Mousie, " courtesy of an ancient book of Burns' poems I have, in which the...

Right or Left!

Ambidextrous... As folks in Blogitsville may or may not know, I'm left-handed - usually. It seems to be something genetic. My brother is left-handed, as are many relatives on my father's side. So what's the big deal? Well, for one thing, I hold a baseball bat right-handed, but catch left-handed! For... Sign in to see full entry.

You Know You're in Trouble If...

What's This Say? Since today for a short while there was a Tsunami warning, thought I'd share this pic with everyone. It's a Tsunami Evacuation Route sign, and was the first one I'd ever seen. It means to take that street to get outta Dodge if there's a Tsunami; that is, if there's still a street... Sign in to see full entry.

Racial Discrimination & Profiling, My Rude Awakening

"You Can't Go in There..." Sandy and I have been best friends longer than many folks have been alive! Our friendship goes back to the 7th grade. We sorta look alike and sure do act alike. We may not see each other in person for a long time and then pick up just like it was yesterday, chattering,... Sign in to see full entry.

Pass the Salt, Please

"It makes food taste better..." The summer of my fifth year was very warm. My dad would spend Saturdays tending the garden in our backyard, and my Mom would often be outside also, tending my younger siblings. One Saturday afternoon was a particularly hot day outside, and after lunch I was treated to... Sign in to see full entry.

Freedom Riders - Honoring MLK Day

"All Aboard!" I had the honor, unbeknownst to me for a while, to work for a short time alongside one of the *Freedom Riders of the 1960s. She was a humble, quiet, understated person, and if someone had not mentioned her being a Freedom Rider in her presence, I would never have believed that she had... Sign in to see full entry.
