Born Again

"Except ye become as little children," except you can wake on your fiftieth birthday [or sixtieth, or seventy-fifth] with the same forward-looking excitement and interest in life that you enjoyed when you were five, "ye cannot enter the kingdom of God." One must not only die daily, but every day we... Sign in to see full entry.

I Guess I Should Have Known

One thing I have learned in the Blogit world--don't make a comment on someone's post telling them that their post is bad, unless you want lots of negative attention. It is best to either lie and tell them the post is the most wonderful thing you have ever read, or to swallow your honest opinion and... Sign in to see full entry.

Longaberger Baskets & Tea

"Life is like the blink of an eye. What is that worth? Nothing. But the eye that blinks - that is something......Come, let us have some tea and continue to talk about happy things." ~ Chaim Potok Laughing Girl, my Dad called her when, due to his progressing Alzheimer disease, he could no longer...

Organizing My Put Log

The other day, I overheard Son #1 and Son #3 having a conversation about the definition of the word "putlog". Since I had never heard of the word, I kind of was eavesdropping, which I am not above doing if I think I might learn something interesting. Of course, Son #1 who is the studious type and...

CSI My Home Town

An awful lot of crime scene investigations have been coming down recently in my city because there have been, and continue to be many crime scenes to investigate. In fact, a Kansas City Crime Scene Investigator finished his night shift on Saturday, and pulling out of the crime lab parking lot about... Sign in to see full entry.

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.

POW! POW! KABOOM!

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.
