The Last Day Of Eighty

Life either goes on and on....or else it doesn't. If it does, it continuously changes. Last evening I spent quite a bit of time on one of those Internet sites where you click on one person at a time. It was a site with pictures of aged celebrities still living and active, and their present looks... Sign in to see full entry.

The traffic downtown is a tangled, unmoving mess! President Trump is supposed to arrive at our airport in an hour from now for a five-hour visit to Kansas City to speak at the VFW Convention for a half hour, a luncheon with those who are willing to fork out $10,000 support, and then fly away again....

No Duck Boat For Me

Those ungainly-looking things never called to me even though I've always loved water and spent time in lakes, pools, streams, oceans, bays, ponds, gulfs, rivers, creeks, and waterfalls. Somehow it didn't surprise me too greatly that a duck boat went down in Table Rock Lake Saturday evening taking... Sign in to see full entry.

Gossip Is As Gossip Does

The place where Kansas City Sis lives is a place for people 65 and older to live. It is a place where just about 95% of the residents are female. As you can imagine, the women residents' major topic of conversation is the few men that reside in the establishment. The men are quite voraciously... Sign in to see full entry.

Exhilarating Summertime

Seventy years ago it was hot in July...just as hot as it is now...hotter I do believe. It is hard to tell because then we didn't have air/conditioning....an oscillating window fan at night for sleep-aid was about the best we could do. We didn't have TV or computers and I don't remember people... Sign in to see full entry.

Please Don't Bring Me An Avozilla

"Can I get you anything at the store while I'm there?" asks P.D. quite often, always the solicitous son. I'm learning to say no when it comes to fruits and vegetables. He is just not picky enough for me (grabs up anything without inspecting it), and he just cannot get it through his head that though... Sign in to see full entry.

None As Sweet As A Pluot

T he reason for the season is pie. That season is not quite ready here in Missouri, but the peaches of Frog Hollow Farm (in CA) are going strong, the juiciest peaches of all, along with the organic dapple dandy pluots. I must say, I got no pie made as the fresh fruit was way too good just eating to... Sign in to see full entry.

The Pleasure of Wasting Time

Once upon a time, time went by so slowly, as if it were in slow motion and things I awaited impatiently would never come. I didn't really worry then about accomplishments, getting things done, or wasted time. Somehow that all changed and now time is rushing on at an unbelievable speed. "Time is...

...But For Now...

I love red rocks country (Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona...). Memories fill my mind as Internet photos please my eyes and I visit once again from my rocking chair. Some details remain a bit fuzzy and others sharp and clear....and calling me, calling me to come.....come...visit just once more.... Sign in to see full entry.

His Latest Account

Two big fellows from New York dropped in here in Missouri yesterday, took me captive along with another old lady that I love, and forced us to go with them to Gates Barbeque and gorge on BBQ beef covered with Gates BBQ sauce, baked beans, French fries and an enormous amount of pickles. They didn't... Sign in to see full entry.
