Control? No Control?

I'm so, so tired of hearing about guns that I'm reading an old 1940's Nero Wolfe Mystery where the murdered man was hit in the head three times with a monkey wrench. I'm 3/4 of the way through it and so far "gun" has not yet been mentioned once.....neither has "monkey wrench control". Sign in to see full entry.

At Both Ends Of The Spectrum

"Finally! I have enough hair for a bow. Don't I look pretty?" ~ 7-month-old Marianna On the other hand, GGMa TAPS is losing her hair at what seems an ever-increasing rate. Thinner and thinner, finer and finer, harder to manage, pink scalp shining through, more gray hairs left in the brush. My thick... Sign in to see full entry.

"Mum?" "Yes, dear?" "Why can't I learn to be a sheep-pig?" ~ Babe Gray day. Wet, foggy, gray day. One of those days that every time I sit down somewhere, I doze off. Coffee tastes good, but it's not keeping me awake and clear-headed. I try to get on the Internet and blog but I sit with my elbows on... Sign in to see full entry.

Hungry Children in Africa

It isn't often that any of my sons rave about left-over concoctions. I don't like to throw food away, so I often take what is left over from one meal and make vegetable soup or a casserole for the next day. It is a habit I grew up with in a waste-not-want-not family. As children, we were always... Sign in to see full entry.

Apps -- Scam. Scum, or Fun?

The Birthdays just keep coming--not mine--Well on second thought mine keep coming too but just not yet. You'd think that for a time, after Christmas, one could rest from buying presents and from celebrations. But, today, the eighth day of the year, and this is already the eighth birthday of a family...

How New Year's Resolutions Can Get One In Trouble

Now I'm in a pickle because of what I posted on my other blog that I keep going. Nautikos infers that I'm crazy, and I well might be. It's just hard to tell if you are crazy, if you are crazy. If you are "crazy", what you are seems like what you should be. So, Naut, I might be and just don't know... Sign in to see full entry.

Is Work Fun?

"...so, what is the most fun job you have ever had--not the most lucrative, not the most important, but the most fun?" I posed this question because the conversation had segued from going back to work after the holidays, to things very much disliked about one's job. Silence as each thought about the...

Moving On

How fun to see what the new year brings--like Blogit members posting who have been gone for a coon's age. With regular home life following a months-long holiday season of celebrating from Thanksgiving to New Year, it is fun to take time to see life moving on. Some things have taken me by surprise,...

Grannie On The Go

My car was totally winterized recently in every way but the tires. I left that pending for a time because I wasn't in the mood for it even though I knew the tread was practically gone. I don't drive much anymore so I assumed there wasn't any hurry. Then it snowed. I forget how many inches we had,... Sign in to see full entry.

Where's My Vit-C Pills?

The little lakes across the way are frozen over, not enough for humans to ice skate, but it is very cold out there and tiny, solid snowflakes are coming down, not pretty lacy ones. The Canada geese seem quite surprised when they come in for a landing on the water and instead land hard and slide... Sign in to see full entry.
