Phil's Surprise

When P.D picked up Grandson Phil at the adult daycare today, the manager informed Son of a Phil surprise for everyone. He described how Phil thought he'd try something new today. For those of you who might not have read my previous posts about Grandson Phil, he was born with Angleman's Syndrome--a... Sign in to see full entry.

A Lost Soul

A new experience for me today. Someone thought that I was a lost Alzheimer's patient wandering around. Usually it is me worried about someone else. Stephen and I were going to go grocery shopping together at HyVee. HyVee at Englewood & North Oak Trafficway is my favorite grocery store and has been... Sign in to see full entry.

The Czech Side

It is fun to surmise from whence one came in the far distant past and imagine what it was like then and how times got from then to now.

Boundaries For A Great-Grandma

I thought I had run out of books to read--ones that I had never read before--I go through them pretty quickly since once I begin I do not want to stop until I reach the end. I didn't feel well. The barometric pressure on a dark, thick cloud-covered day had set my right-side sinus cavity to painful... Sign in to see full entry.

Very Deep Purple

Blinding flashes of lightening, rolling pounding thunder across the sky, pouring down rain and river of water running down the middle of the street, then when the rain finally stopped, it turned to snow. I think March is trying to go out like a lion. And....today, the Kansas City Royals are supposed... Sign in to see full entry.

No Rain Needed

Opening day for the Kansas City Royals and the Chicago White Sox at the Royals Stadium Kansas City--the opening pitch was to be thrown ten minutes ago. The fans came, but they are sitting in the stadium beneath small umbrella's and rain gear as the thunder rolls, the lightning flashes and the rain... Sign in to see full entry.
