TAPS' Take

Friday, February 22, 2013


Today we are discussing mondegreens. By we, I mean me, for one, stuck here inside with my car battery inside with me recharging with the aid of the battery charger of Son #3 who dug me out of the snow. Baltimore Sis, for two. Friday is always one of her days off work as she works four ten-hour days... Sign in to see full entry.

What do you have when there is thunder, lightning, blowing snow, no visibility except white? Definitely a thundersnorm. Yesterday, in preparation for the winter weather warnings, Son #1 took my keys and went out into the cold to run my car for a bit and perhaps go for a ride and gas it up if he felt...

Double The Fun

I am a singleton. I come from a long line of singletons. All of my children, my grandchildren, and my only great-grandbaby have been singletons, though one of them, one of Phil's brothers was almost a dizygotic twin, though it is not commonly known. On the other hand, though, my husband was a... Sign in to see full entry.

Bag Of Jello

It is hard to imagine that Grandson Phil turned 27 this month. I've never known a person quite like him. Diagnosed with Angelman's Syndrome in his early years, he definitely has been a "handful" but he has also been a wonderful blessing and a lot of fun. February is a busy, busy month in our family...

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...
