Like A Ghost From The Past

"In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists." ~ Eric Hoffer I happened to run across an old television drama called The Rockford Files. I couldn't help but stop and watch for a bit. James Garner was... Sign in to see full entry.

Has It Only Been Nine Years?

I'm so behind in everything I want to do. It seems that the older I get the more I want to do, but the longer it takes for each thing that I do do. Also, the older I get, the more I think about all the things I always intended to do and have never done, and that possibly the time is getting shorter... Sign in to see full entry.

Night Passage To Blogit

January just ended an hour ago. It ended on a very cold note. As the wind blew eastward over the snow pack of Kansas and Nebraska, it dropped our temperature to 0 o with the wind chill even further down the scale. But even worse than the winter weather is the fact that for our Kansas City, January... Sign in to see full entry.

Titus Fanitus Popitus Bagitus...

Other than the Apostle Paul's "true son in the faith" that he left in Crete to put in order what was left unfinished, I have never personally known a Titus. I'm not sure I like it really well. What are they going to call him, I wonder?....Tight?...Little Tighty Whitey? But, anyway, isn't he... Sign in to see full entry.

I've Lost My Zest...

....and I'm not talking about a bar of soap. It seems that I have relegated myself to the sidelines of most everything, and that is probably as it should be. But, as Charlie Rose and Dustin Hoffman were talking this evening about all things acting and directing, I picked up on one thing especially... Sign in to see full entry.

Just Because We Can

This is a perfect day for a Senior-Citizens-No-Pants-Bus-Ride Improv for cities like ours with no subway. It's sunny and semi-warm--a good day for a woolen crocheted cap, a neck scarf, gloves, baggy undies and skinny, white legs. We kind of got left out on January 13 when subway cities all over the...

The Scent Of A Male

Every time I have been to the KC Zoo in recent years, which is quite a few times because Grandson Phil loves the Zoo, I always feel a bit sorry for Nikita. But, that is almost at an end--the feeling sorry. Berlin is here to save the day. Actually, KC Zoo is also "saving the day" for Berlin whose... Sign in to see full entry.

Control? No Control?

I'm so, so tired of hearing about guns that I'm reading an old 1940's Nero Wolfe Mystery where the murdered man was hit in the head three times with a monkey wrench. I'm 3/4 of the way through it and so far "gun" has not yet been mentioned once.....neither has "monkey wrench control". Sign in to see full entry.

At Both Ends Of The Spectrum

"Finally! I have enough hair for a bow. Don't I look pretty?" ~ 7-month-old Marianna On the other hand, GGMa TAPS is losing her hair at what seems an ever-increasing rate. Thinner and thinner, finer and finer, harder to manage, pink scalp shining through, more gray hairs left in the brush. My thick... Sign in to see full entry.

"Mum?" "Yes, dear?" "Why can't I learn to be a sheep-pig?" ~ Babe Gray day. Wet, foggy, gray day. One of those days that every time I sit down somewhere, I doze off. Coffee tastes good, but it's not keeping me awake and clear-headed. I try to get on the Internet and blog but I sit with my elbows on... Sign in to see full entry.
