It Was The Snow That Did It

The "Big Snow of 2013" slammed Kansas City, in February like a violent thunderstorm. it piled high, caused buildings to crumble, roofs to fall, cars on freeways to be abandoned and towed, and a few MI's for out-of-condition shoveler. It's all gone now-- melted away, but while it was here... while it... Sign in to see full entry.

No Bags Or Shoes

I finally made myself begin my version of spring cleaning--beginning with the closet in my bedroom and my big old chest of drawers that is a beautiful family piece from years back. And now I am worn out. Should I go to bed, or make a pot of coffee? It is just a bit after midnight. What I ended up... Sign in to see full entry.

Rumor's Mystery

Maple trees are so famous for their brightly colored leaves in the autumn, that many people only notice them at that time and ignore the other times in the yearly cycle of the life of a maple tree.

Sign The Guestbook!

Knocking on the bedroom door of Son #1 this evening after washing and drying a couple loads of laundry (one for him and one for me), I sung out, "Can I bring in your clean socks and tighty-whities and put them on your bed?" They really are not tight ones and neither are they white but that is what I... Sign in to see full entry.

Another Month Cometh

As I drove over to Son's house yesterday afternoon with a basket of orange flavored shortbread cookies for Phil, I saw several different family groups hiding Easter eggs in yards and park areas. It was fun to reminisce about my four boys when they were little and the fun they had out with their... Sign in to see full entry.

En Garde

It seems that one must always be on guard, for one does not know what someone else might do. Angelia proved to be a real US Marine wife today even though she has not had special training in that direction. She does have a temper and is not timid at standing up for herself. She and Peter are in the... Sign in to see full entry.

A Degree Of Insanity

So many things that I see these days in the news, or read about, or observe on a day to day basis, so many political opinions, or beliefs ascribed to religion, make me wonder. If a writ De Lunatico Inquirendo were directed to the sheriff, directing him to "Inquire by good and lawful men whether the... Sign in to see full entry.

They're Taking Over

Since there are more chickens than people in the world, let us pray that they don't all decide to cross the road at the same time. Often that's what our Canada geese are doing here--all crossing the road at the same time, as slowly as they can, haughtily thumbing their webbed-foot toes(?) at the... Sign in to see full entry.

Today It Was A Tulip

" It's such a pretty world today look at the sunshine (Look at the sunshine) Today and every day since I met you..." ~ Eddy Arnold Beautiful day! Lovely for going, and doing, and sharing, and enjoying, and helping someone else have a lovely day. Even though it is still quite chilly and more snow is... Sign in to see full entry.
