Suddenly At Midnight

All was dreamy quiet and I was falling asleep when at midnight, almost on the dot, without thunder or flashing lightning, the heavens opened and a sudden downpour of flooding rain began falling on the roof, the grounds, the streets.... I jumped up to see if the bedroom window was totally closed and... Sign in to see full entry.

Staighten Up And Fly Right

Just be here and keep posting I tell myself repeatedly. I don't want to fall by the wayside, but I fear that is where I'm headed if I don't straighten up and fly right. So I'll see what I can come up with for tonight. This morning was dark, gray and damp with lowering clouds, rumblings of thunder... Sign in to see full entry.

When a man loves a woman, and she leaves him for another man, leaving him wounded and hurting, ashamed, and not knowing what to do next, unable to think how to handle the situation, he is not the only one who hurts. Shock envelopes family members who had no idea there was anything wrong with the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Day Of The Genie

The day before the Baltimore Beauty flew away home, Genie Joel spirited we three away to his magic aerie where David dances and Joel prepares fine and fancy things to eat and drink, and music plays, and Marcel does his share in the entertainment. We laugh. We linger. We imbibe. We hug. We share... Sign in to see full entry.

Brownie Time

The older I get, the longer it takes me to do anything that I used to do in a flash or the snap of a finger. I assume everyone is that way as they age, but I may be wrong. Perhaps it is just me. Tomorrow, Son#3, P.D., has his birthday #55. I've been trying to get things done all day for a little bit... Sign in to see full entry.

Time And Tide

She fell on her bum again. Didn't bother her a bit except for a bit of frustration. She flipped over to her knees and crawled a few feet to where she could pull up on the easy chair near her and begin trying all over again to gain her balance and take a few steps. I'm afraid it sounds like me at 80... Sign in to see full entry.

The Lollard in his vow to poverty left without paying the tab, Unhappy Famulus went through the roof and vanished completely in one big poof. Poor... Sign in to see full entry.

When The Company Goes Home

Quiet reigns for a bit, but not long. That's when Ribcage comes out of his quarters and tries to make up for everything he didn't get to say when only women were having a good time and he was staying out of the way. I can breath deeply and slowly once more because I don't have to be funny or wise,... Sign in to see full entry.
