Enough Is Enough

"Weariness can snore upon the flint, when resty sloth finds the down pillow hard.” ~ William Shakespeare I Tried to give Slowpoke, my Beanie Baby Sloth, to Great-grandbaby Marianna, on Sunday afternoon when they were here. She was tired and testy, though, and didn't like him. She hid her face on... Sign in to see full entry.

UNFAIR!

Everybody everywhere desires fair treatment, fair opportunity, fair pay, fair play. Unfairness causes unhappiness, and worse, in families, on the job, among friends. Some people react more strongly than others to what they consider unfairness, even to the point of violence. They forget that this... Sign in to see full entry.

Hat Check

A combo of negative events and personal problems have sort of kept me away from this favorite place of mine for the last several days. I say "sort of" because I did drop in once in a great while, read someone who had just posted, and then retreated again. But, I woke up this morning feeling... Sign in to see full entry.

Performance/Looks Ratio

"Performance stands out like a ton of diamonds. Non performance can always be explained away.” When I look in the mirror, I must admit that I look like what I do.....not much physically challenging. There was a time when one could look at me and pretty much guess that I was a regular jogger, a... Sign in to see full entry.

On Criticism

It is definitely a part of Blogit--criticism--though we call it "comments". Mostly, we look upon it favorably. Actually, we desire it. It is the way we can tell if people are really reading us. I know, we get "view" pennies anyway. But we get those whether a person reads or not, just from the click.... Sign in to see full entry.

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. Some people don't even know that there are more than a hundred different kinds of maple trees, that... Sign in to see full entry.

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.
