A Word from Joe Longo-Geremia

A Short Note to Everybody Just thought I'd tell those of you who remember Longo-Geremia (Joe), who is a cousin of mine, that I spoke with him yesterday, and he said to say hello to the folks on Blogit. If you don't know him, or don't remember him, he had posted poetry here since 2008, and is now in... Sign in to see full entry.

Shine, Hooch, Bathtub Gin

"Don't You Ever Drink It!" And I never did, Mom. Mother had warned us from an early age about the dangers of ever drinking anything "homemade" that was an alcoholic beverage. She said we'd have no way of knowing what was really in it, and then proceeded to tell us stories of people who'd died from... Sign in to see full entry.

What's a Mother to Do?

"Ya Can't Tell 'Em Anything..." My girls are great, just a bit testa dura (hard-headed). They are adults. They don't need Mommy telling them what to do. Especially an opinionated Italian mama whom they say almost enjoys worrying about too many little things, like this latest cause for obsession:... Sign in to see full entry.

Dragged Out to Sea

"It was dark and murky..." With the advent of yesterday's Solstice, it brought to mind one summer when I was about 10 or 11 and my family went swimming in the ocean off of Santa Cruz, CA (and no, we didn't live anywhere near there). It was the first, and only, I might add, time we'd ever been to... Sign in to see full entry.

Dream On

A Glimpse into the Future? When I was expecting my second daughter, I had an unusual dream about a machine, like an x-ray machine but not an x-ray machine, that enabled one to see the baby (in this case, my baby) while still inside Mommy. In my dream the baby was not in the normal head-down... Sign in to see full entry.

Pulled Over - Again

"I Stopped You Because..." As a teen driver, I seemed to get stopped a lot. I didn't once get ticketed, mind you, just pulled over for a variety of odd reasons. I had my own car, an older two-tone black and white Merc, which I'd "purchased" from my dad (no, he would NOT give it to me, but he did... Sign in to see full entry.

When the Word is Right but the Meaning's Wrong

To a Child's Ears - and Eyes... Kids' minds collect and process information in ways adults don't always consider. For example, I had an uncle who was an engineer. His daughter and I were "bestie" cousins. When she was in her twenties she confessed to me that as a child she'd always thought her dad... Sign in to see full entry.

The Coolest Dad...

Not Really, but Just This Once The coolest thing I ever remember my dad letting me do was to DRIVE HIS CAR when I was twelve. Oh, the thrill of it! Before that happened I'd often sit behind the wheel, wishing I was sixteen and could drive. After all, I could drive bumper cars pretty good, couldn't... Sign in to see full entry.

They May be Angels, but They Can't Walk on Water

Even When You're 'Right There...' I was filled with deep sadness and a heavy heart when I heard of Olympian, Bode Miller's daughter, Emeline, drowning in a neighbor's swimming pool last Saturday. Her poor grandmother was the one to find her in the pool. Horror of horrors! And, Mother is pregnant.... Sign in to see full entry.

It's a Good Thing

Inclusion in Public Schools I usually keep it light here, so count this as just an "extra" post. I mentioned in a comment to Amanda that I might write a blurb about the choice of educators to add the policy of Inclusion to our schools. Inclusion is simply that; including children in the classroom,... Sign in to see full entry.
