Just One More Sleep

Just one more sleep for the little ones and the gift-packages will come apart at the seams--ribbons/bows here and wrapping paper fragments there. Breakfast will be forgotten. Styrofoam packing and plastic casings, gifts of clothing (socks and underpants especially) will be littered for mom and dad... Sign in to see full entry.

Two Black Things

I've got all kinds of things to write about, but I just can't make myself do it. I did write a nice long post earlier in the day about Seasonal affective disorder and Christmas depression, and then when I clicked Save & Post it disappeared. That, of course, made me depressed when I hadn't been... Sign in to see full entry.

Just Think!

Two more days and I'm heading to Mee-Maw's and Pa-Pa's. Maybe Great-grandma will be there too. And, I'll just bet she has sparkling things, and twinkle lights, and presents at her house too. I'll even bet she has a Santa or two that I can play with without breaking them. It's going to be a mighty... Sign in to see full entry.

Trope Scope

"Too many cooks spoil the broth" ~ Old Proverb I've got two things going in my kitchen and I'm definitely not sure how they are going to turn out because I've had too much help from too many cooks and I have incorporated all of their ideas, and literal assistance, into the project. One of the... Sign in to see full entry.

On Stage

"All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts,..." ~ William Shakespeare, As You Like it If I had a red hat and a full beard, I definitely would look like Santa Claus. But, as fast as they... Sign in to see full entry.

An UnChristmas Tale

Dwelling in one of the historic Painted Ladies in The Castro of San Francisco has been a decades-long dream come true of Friend Larry, and he has loved every minute of it. Well, he didn't much like what happened last night. Every season, every holiday, every reason, he decorates his window over his... Sign in to see full entry.

Off Day

Everyone should have one now and then--an Off-Day where they can lay back and unwind. At my age, I seem to require one after every busy, active, day that exercises muscles that haven't been used in a while, strains the brain cells in unusual thought, messes with the digestive tract with too much or...

All Things New

Watching Frosty The Snowman for the very first time can be a wonderful experience, not only for baby, but for mama and daddy watching baby watch Frosty. There is absolutely nothing that quite equals being a parent and experiencing your little ones being awed by the wonders of a Christmas Season.... Sign in to see full entry.

Irresponsible Government Prevails

Financing education with a get-rich-quick LOTTERY is irresponsible government. LOTTERIES target almost exclusively disadvantaged minorities. "An individual without a high school degree or GED is more than four times as likely to be an active LOTTERY player as an individual who has an education above... Sign in to see full entry.

Surprise Cache

There is nothing quite as entertaining for a woman of a certain age (nigh on to old) than a surprise cache of old photos that bring back memories of long ago. In fact, I just love any old photos. I don't even need to know who the people were, or even place names to enjoy them. It is simply the idea... Sign in to see full entry.
