Bad News At A Youthful Age

Since I was 58 so long ago, I still think of that age as youthful. After all, Ribcage, my oldest child, won't even be 58 until the end of December. So, both he and I were shocked by a bit of news this evening received by a phone call. In years past, I have written Blogit posts about Craig. He and... Sign in to see full entry.

Explosive Expansion of Women in Politics

My sciamachy is lacking oomph today. Instead I'm more often seeking out my fuzzy blanket & soft pillows and making me a nest in my recliner. With a good book nearby, a video of a movie I have not seen, three controls (one for the TV, one for the video player, and one for an extra heater), a hot cup... Sign in to see full entry.

Before The Rain Begins

My body is trying to keep me from doing my civic duty. First, I woke with a headache. I decided to not let that get me down and to go anyway so I began my attempts to make me look decent for being out in public. In the midst of that, I sneezed hard and then blew my nose and started a nosebleed. That... Sign in to see full entry.

Voting Incentive

Bad politicians are elected by good citizens who don't vote. I plan to vote tomorrow. Of course no one knows what tomorrow will bring, especially when the one doing the planning is an old one, and the weather is not cooperative, and related aches and pains seem at their worst, and other problems...

Trauma Comes In Many Faces

Life brings many unintended jolts and most often leave no lasting scars. Often people laugh, even at themselves. But sometimes scars are left behind, both visible and unseen. Trauma is a part of life. No one seems to get through this world unscathed, and often traumatic experiences make us what we... Sign in to see full entry.

The smell of smoked oysters is permeating the place, even to my bedroom where I sit at my desk and play with my computer. I say "play" because I'm doing nothing important....a game of Scrabble via Facebook with Sis (she definitely is winning), a solo Mahjong Solitaire, and a video of "Beloved...

We didn't have anything like this when I was a kid. When we dressed up for Halloween, we took old bedsheets and turned into ghosts, or black crepe paper and dressed like a witch and that was about the extent of our ingenuity for costumes. Once, though, I did make like a pirate with an eye patch and... Sign in to see full entry.

Death's Surprise

The meadow is strewn with red and gold, yellow and brown amongst the carpet of green, and yet the trees have not let go their grasp of the bright colors of autumn. The colors are at their peak, and the weather exhilarating. The beginning of the turning, Color creeping day by day, Green is going,... Sign in to see full entry.

I Don't Go Looking For Trouble...But...

I knew it was on its way here. The smell of trouble has been in the air, especially around the weekends. It seems to come looking for me...trouble that is. As much as I try to stay away from trouble, it is impossible to stay free from its environs. Tonight, an hour or so ago, I noticed there was a... Sign in to see full entry.

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.
