Gateway To Spring

Check on your friends in Kansas City. The whole city is a giant pothole; we have a snow storm every week that comes down before the previous one can be gone; we have run out of snow-melt/salt several times; we are stuck inside with children for days at a time; the kids are going to be going to...

Never The Twain Shall Touch

All kinds of bits and pieces of subject matter for a blog post are flashing before mine eyes and moving on, but I can't seem to grab on to any of them and hang on long enough to get something going. I know that it can't be just age, for there are many people much older than I that write fascinating... Sign in to see full entry.

The Chutney Choo Choo

A packet of ground hot chilies straight from Thailand was a Valentine's Day gift for Ribcage and I. They are called a lot of things, but perhaps the most fitting name of the bunch is Thai dragon peppers. These chilies have some fire, they are red when ripened like dragon's breath, and their shape,... Sign in to see full entry.

Hearts And Flowers

Love is among the greatest muses, inspiring the world’s most famous romantics. Have you ever tried to write a love poem when you were not loved, not in love. Forget it. Just get a heart-shaped box of chocolates and gorge. I'm p reparing for my Valentine's Day outing for this year. With 80 of those... Sign in to see full entry.

His Shade Of Blue

Unwelcome is the problem when it shows its ugly face sticks out its yucky tongue, grins, and puts me in my place. My problems of two posts ago have gradually righted themselves with the help of my two sons here in KC and the prayers of my Florida son. I do have lots of support for which I am very...

The Avenue

Freezing rain all day today. Not a good day to take "The Avenue" that runs through the old Northeast part of Kansas City east to Independence, MO. It is especially not a good thing for big trucks to do. When the yellow sign on the train overpass says 12' 0" it does not mean that it is made for... Sign in to see full entry.

One Crazy Outlet

It is amazing to me how some little thing that seems so unimportant, can cause big problems that compound themselves into more problems that seem to have lasting, or nearly lasting, effects. Been worrying with this since Thursday sometime and here it is Sunday already. Though the basic problem was... Sign in to see full entry.

Doc Of My Heart

I forced myself to go today. I didn't want to. I was in a really bad mood due to things piling up and things going wrong, and things being worried about and the deadly cold, the ground covered with fused ice pellets, and anything else that I could think of to worry about and complain about. I was... Sign in to see full entry.

Day Unto Day

You just don't know how much one misses Blogit until the power goes out and you can't get on the computer even if you want to. That's when you wonder why you have been lying low, just sneaking in to read without commenting or writing tidbits to share with others. It is never a convenient time for...

The World Is Not Impressed

Not only am I not impressed with the Super Bowl game today, Ribcage is not impressed, P.D. is not impressed, Phil would rather be watching cartoons. The fans at the Super Bowl are stuffing themselves with hot dogs costing $150 each and large cokes costing $150 each because they are so bored they... Sign in to see full entry.
