Blessed Quietness

So quiet. Everything is so quiet today. I don't hear anything but the hum of a fan nearby, and the twittering of a few birds outside my window. The celebratory noises of people getting ready to have fun yesterday at this time, are silenced. No car doors banging, no car trunks being packed with... Sign in to see full entry.

Somebody is wasting a lot of money around here on B OO M B OO M 's tonight. But, I guess it's not a waste if they are enjoying themselves, and being careful. It's kind of fun listening to them and picturing them having fun doing all the things with them that I used to do when I was a kid, like... Sign in to see full entry.

Long Ago And Far Away

For anyone who read the previous two posts and feel concern that there may still be that sort of thing going on in that place of worship, rest assured that nothing is the same there. (I would not say that those sort of things do not go on anywhere, though, because humans can be quite toxic, and... Sign in to see full entry.

HM of DL Addendum (a long one)

With my desire to find my quondam friend renewed by my sharing the previous posting with you, my inability to get the thoughts off of my mind, and the encouragement of Sinome with ideas of how to go about the search, I spent the rest of the night last night, and much of today in a concerted endeavor...

Haunting Memories Of Delicious Laughter

A very interesting quondam companion and friend disappeared years ago into the mists of time, without a word of goodbye or an explanation of her reasons. For a time, I thought that it was something that I had done, and perhaps it was, though I have been at a loss as to what could have happened. We... Sign in to see full entry.

Big Bang Picnic Offering

Layered Cornbread Salad for that Fourth of July picnic coming up--goes with any backyard BBQ, cookout, camp out, porch party, pool party. It is even a great meatless meal all by itself. All the summer flavor a person could possibly want. An icy pitcher of iced tea or homemade lemonade will follow... Sign in to see full entry.

Layers Passing Through

Scientists tell us that the atmosphere has five different layers that are determined by the changes in temperature that happen with increasing altitude. I don't know if that is what is pictured here or not. All I know for sure is that the bottom layer was just about to get us when I took this pic.... Sign in to see full entry.

The Heat Is On

"Some people change their ways when they see the light; others when they feel the heat." No, I'm not talking about Paula Deen here (though it might seem that way). I'm talking about the weather (isn't everyone?), and specifically, the reaction of Son #2 to our hot and humid "Heart of America". One... Sign in to see full entry.

Baggy Pants Fight

If you go down to our town today, you're in for a big surprise.......or maybe not. Perhaps you have the same thing going on in your city. There is a rally going on here--a rally for support for a ban on sagging pants in Kansas City, MO. A group, led by a KC Bishop, is petitioning for an ordinance to... Sign in to see full entry.

I hate it when people do things like that.... The Pioneer Woman, a life-size, bronze statue of a pioneer woman in a calico dress and sunbonnet, carrying a child in one arm and a bucket in the other, was sculpted by Juan Lombardo-Revera of Mexico City, Mexico, twenty+ years ago. It was mounted on a... Sign in to see full entry.
