Tragedienne In The Drama Of Life

When life throws you a curve that was totally unexpected and it knocks you off of your feet for a time, it is difficult to get back up and keep going. I've been dragging my tail for the last couple of days and staring into space as the wheels of my mind keep turning in the wrong direction trying to... Sign in to see full entry.

I've Been Known To Be Wrong

“It is very unnerving to be proven wrong, particularly when you are really right and the person who is really wrong is proving you wrong and proving himself, wrongly, right." ~ Lemony Snicket, The Blank Book There is never a day that goes by without a bit of who is right? and who is wrong? cropping...

Yes, I Still Do It

I thought about giving it all up and just living on the edge of what others decide. But I can't. It's still on my mind, in my blood so, I still go vote....even though I sometime wonder if I'm helping.... or making things worse. Tomorrow is the day. My mom and dad set the example for me. They were... Sign in to see full entry.

When Do You Call The Police?

When you are making sure you are on the same page with someone, also be sure that you are in the same book, and that the other person knows how to read.

Celebrating Birthdays wears me out. That is not just because I am old and tired anyway. They have never been a favorite pastime of mine, though they have been an important part of family life.... and I have a lot of family. The end of July and the beginning of August is the time of year for a lot of... Sign in to see full entry.

Warning: You may not want to read this. Today is Preacher's birthday (my Son #2). He lives in Florida so I will not be celebrating with him in person, but my heart, my love, my thoughts, my best wishes and my memories are with him. This last year has been very hard on him.

The Little White Lie To Keep From Hurting Someone's Feelings

Some people have the worst taste in clothing. I could care less if they are wearing the clothes themselves. But when someone buys me something for my birthday, thinking what a beauty it is, and that it will look wonderful on me, and are so proud of their choice, and I just hate it, and they can't...

What's Going On?

It isn't just Blogit that has lost participants. It seems to be a trend these days. Facebook has had a difficult year with lack of user growth, stagnant user base, and just plain running out of people. Twitter reports a million-fewer users. And, when people do visit blogs now and then, 43% of the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Last Day Of Eighty

Life either goes on and on....or else it doesn't. If it does, it continuously changes. Last evening I spent quite a bit of time on one of those Internet sites where you click on one person at a time. It was a site with pictures of aged celebrities still living and active, and their present looks... Sign in to see full entry.

The traffic downtown is a tangled, unmoving mess! President Trump is supposed to arrive at our airport in an hour from now for a five-hour visit to Kansas City to speak at the VFW Convention for a half hour, a luncheon with those who are willing to fork out $10,000 support, and then fly away again....
