The World Keeps Spinning Along

Two family members that have worked for the government for years, this morning were told to sign a bunch of papers and then go home and not come back. Due to Government shutdown (Trump Shutdown) they were informed that they were on unpaid furlough. One of them works in Maryland and the other here in... Sign in to see full entry.

WHY? As in a dream, I see us there, framed by years that carried us to places never planned, or never seemed to call to us at all. Whence came those years that crept upon unsuspecting naive youth that never once suspected age or fate would come their way and interrupt their play? Down flowing,... Sign in to see full entry.

Should I Be Worried?

What does it mean to me for the government to be closed down? I'm certain that I don't know. I could make a few guesses, but what good would that do? It wouldn't help anything, would it? I guess that I will just keep on keeping on no matter what. Worries and fretting usually take over the mind when... Sign in to see full entry.

Wash Your Hands

It finally got above freezing today and the sun is shining, so I am going out for lunch and have some fun catching up on everything. We don't exactly gossip, but it is fun catching up on what has been going on, which happens to be pretty much nothing. I have just a bit of time here before my ride... Sign in to see full entry.

Murder In The Northland

The sound of gunfire at 11:00 p.m. was called to my attention, off in the distance. Multiple shots were fired. I would not have noticed on my side of the house and the T.V. playing, and me half asleep in my comfy, over-stuffed chair, wrapped in my winter robe but for Ribcage bursting out of his room...

The weather man is being hard on my Subaru. I guess a lot of weather watchers are being hard on him. He looks like he has been pulling his hair out. He has more bald spots than I remember last winter. But, back to the Subaru, I haven't been able to drive it for nearly a week because I cannot get... Sign in to see full entry.

The Way It Was - Part II

Alfred came to my wedding. By that time we had become good friends. Not only did he come to my wedding, he married us. Somewhere along the way he had graduated from Seminary and had become the preacher/pastor of our little church. He walked with a cane because his right leg was still six inches...

The Way It Was

Alfred died in '97, a few years after my dad passed away. They had been friends off and on for as long as I can remember. Their off times usually had something to do with their differences in how they interpreted various Scripture passages. But when they were not arguing religious interpretations,...

Good Night 2017

An hour before midnight on New Years Eve and I'm ringing in the occasion by myself because I preferred not to get out on this horribly cold night. Almost everyone I know preferred not to get out on this horribly cold night, so most everyone I know is "celebrating" by themselves, as am I. Actually... Sign in to see full entry.
