Titus Fanitus Popitus Bagitus...

Other than the Apostle Paul's "true son in the faith" that he left in Crete to put in order what was left unfinished, I have never personally known a Titus. I'm not sure I like it really well. What are they going to call him, I wonder?....Tight?...Little Tighty Whitey? But, anyway, isn't he... Sign in to see full entry.

I've Lost My Zest...

....and I'm not talking about a bar of soap. It seems that I have relegated myself to the sidelines of most everything, and that is probably as it should be. But, as Charlie Rose and Dustin Hoffman were talking this evening about all things acting and directing, I picked up on one thing especially... Sign in to see full entry.

Just Because We Can

This is a perfect day for a Senior-Citizens-No-Pants-Bus-Ride Improv for cities like ours with no subway. It's sunny and semi-warm--a good day for a woolen crocheted cap, a neck scarf, gloves, baggy undies and skinny, white legs. We kind of got left out on January 13 when subway cities all over the...

The Scent Of A Male

Every time I have been to the KC Zoo in recent years, which is quite a few times because Grandson Phil loves the Zoo, I always feel a bit sorry for Nikita. But, that is almost at an end--the feeling sorry. Berlin is here to save the day. Actually, KC Zoo is also "saving the day" for Berlin whose... Sign in to see full entry.

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.
