Where's My Purse?

"Anybody find a purse?" I once left my purse in the shopping cart after buying groceries on my way home from work. I remember that I was so tired. Up early, work all day, stop to buy food, then have to go home and cook the food... You know the drill. Anyway, I had put the groceries in the car, but... Sign in to see full entry.

Surveillance, You Never Know...

"That Man is Talking to His Pen!!" One summer night, many years ago, in the days before cell phones and before the advent of malls, at the time when there were phone booths with pay telephones which cost only a dime to use, in the early evening, after my husband had come home from work, and after...

Gimme That Ol' Time Religion

"Pull Over!" When he was a boy, my little brother had one of those now near-obsolete things called a newspaper route. It was back in the day when newspapers were delivered to one's house on a daily basis, or, for those who so chose, on Sundays only. I used to drive my twelve year-old brother along...

Charles Manson's Body

"What'd He Just Say? " This just in from tonight's news. As you may know, there has been an ongoing legal battle over who "gets" to claim Charles Manson's remains, mainly because along with it, also comes possible monetary compensation as controller of his estate. Three people have come forward. I... Sign in to see full entry.

Strength

On Kindness Our Amanda posted a quote by Plato today about being kind. It's one of my favorites. But that's beside the point. Just a quick anecdote for today. A few years ago, I was "babysitting" my twin grandsons, who were then older grade school age. They began posturing, spouting off to me about... Sign in to see full entry.

à la Check Berry, Lyrics from "School Days"

"American History and Practical Math..." - I don't know about any of you, but in school I often tended to study the instructor as much as, or more than, the material being presented - not always the brightest idea, but it provided a modicum of entertainment throughout the most boring of...

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...
