A Shootout and Banditos on the Run

The Bullets Fly I once worked with a lady whose grandfather rode with the outlaw bandito, Poncho Villa. She was a very short, short woman, but really sweet and pretty sharp when it came to the ways of the world. She told me a story about one time when the authorities were pursuing Poncho's gang on...

Gastronomical Sacrilege

"I Never Touch the Stuff" Okay, it's confession time. I'm a picky eater, which in no way translates to " I don't like to eat." I do. As a kid, I once ate an entire bag of Fritos! Got sick, but I ate it. So what's the big deal? I don't use black pepper on my food. Yeah, yeah, I know, everybody does.... Sign in to see full entry.

How Will My Head Fit?

"Mommy, Mommy! Help! Help!" I wasn't yet 4 years old, and downstairs in the garage was my mom's washer. It was what they called a wringer-washer. It had two rollers on top that spun around, even while the clothes washed. After the clothes were washed, Mom took them out of the machine and put them... Sign in to see full entry.

Burned Fries

"Who's Hungry?' There was no getting out of it. It was the day of my parents' final sign-off on our new house. Forget the fact that it was 150 miles away, and I was gonna have to suffer being a Senior in a new high school. We were ALL going along with Mom and Dad; didn't we want to see the brand new...

Just Like the Old Country

"Good Throw!" My Auntie X was one of the funniest, warmest, most congenial and vivacious women I have ever known! But, wow, at times that Italian temper raged! We went to her house nearly every Sunday for dinner, along with assorted other aunts, uncles and cousins. Tradition. That's because it was... Sign in to see full entry.

"How Bad Do You Want It?" Here are two items you can buy that are beyond all words in my vocabulary! Just when I thought I'd seen it all, here they come, just in time for Christmas...

There's a What, Where!

"Where'd He Go?" Summer, Fall, Spring or Winter; it can be brutally hot in SoCal, especially in the Valleys. When my girls were little we had gotten a "new" used car for me to drive. Actually, it had been a rental car and was all clean inside and so shiny bright on the outside, a pretty blue color,... Sign in to see full entry.

Stranger Than Fiction - A True Story

"Let's Do Lunch" In 1857, in a remote village of Southern Italy, two brothers, ages 4 and 7, sat still long enough to eat lunch together in their three-story stone and brick home while looking out at the landscape. They saw rolling hills dotted with mulberry and olive trees, with a sky so clear it... Sign in to see full entry.
