Who Stole The Cheese?

My quandary is quaquaversal at this time. Not one person who lives in this low-income housing for senior citizens is exempt from suspicion, not even my Sis, who has called me in to help her prove her innocence. It all began with this note that was attached to the bulletin board in the community... Sign in to see full entry.

You, But Not Me

I'm finally going to go get my flu shot for this year. I've been putting it off but my sons are so insistent, and I am a believer in flu shots helping out with a terrible disease that kills many people. Actually, I have no idea how many flu shots I administered myself in the years that I was an... Sign in to see full entry.

What's With Wiggy?

The winds of autumn blow now and then, sometimes lightly fluttering the yellow leaves of the shagbark hickory, sometimes hard enough to already be making bare the top of the sugar maple. With the record cold, and rain, and early snow of this area the landscape will soon be laid bare and winter will... Sign in to see full entry.

Suddenly At Midnight

All was dreamy quiet and I was falling asleep when at midnight, almost on the dot, without thunder or flashing lightning, the heavens opened and a sudden downpour of flooding rain began falling on the roof, the grounds, the streets.... I jumped up to see if the bedroom window was totally closed and... Sign in to see full entry.

Staighten Up And Fly Right

Just be here and keep posting I tell myself repeatedly. I don't want to fall by the wayside, but I fear that is where I'm headed if I don't straighten up and fly right. So I'll see what I can come up with for tonight. This morning was dark, gray and damp with lowering clouds, rumblings of thunder... Sign in to see full entry.

When a man loves a woman, and she leaves him for another man, leaving him wounded and hurting, ashamed, and not knowing what to do next, unable to think how to handle the situation, he is not the only one who hurts. Shock envelopes family members who had no idea there was anything wrong with the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Day Of The Genie

The day before the Baltimore Beauty flew away home, Genie Joel spirited we three away to his magic aerie where David dances, and Joel prepares fine and fancy things to eat and drink, music plays, and Marcel does his share in the entertainment. We laugh. We linger. We imbibe. We hug. We share until... Sign in to see full entry.

The Season Is On (Football Season)

We are off to a very good start. We are very thankful to have very good... Sign in to see full entry.

Brownie Time

The older I get, the longer it takes me to do anything that I used to do in a flash or the snap of a finger. I assume everyone is that way as they age, but I may be wrong. Perhaps it is just me. Tomorrow, Son#3, P.D., has his birthday #55. I've been trying to get things done all day for a little bit... Sign in to see full entry.

Time And Tide

She fell on her bum again. Didn't bother her a bit except for a bit of frustration. She flipped over to her knees and crawled a few feet to where she could pull up on the easy chair near her and begin trying all over again to gain her balance and take a few steps. I'm afraid it sounds like me at 80... Sign in to see full entry.
