There Were Also Books

Short, dumpy, gray hair with a boy-type haircut and never a smile made for an awesome teacher for seventh grade sewing and cooking class. Everyone was pretty much afraid of her....except for me. I loved learning to sew and cook and had a ready smile in school. I loved everything there--the long... Sign in to see full entry.

In Remembrance Of Hulda

Yes, autumn is here--today. I always revel in the beauty of nature, especially in the fall. I got out the last two days just to see the changes taking place and yesterday to see the changes taking place in P.D. It was his 54th birthday and I love to watch the aging of my sons. All three of them have... Sign in to see full entry.

Do You Remember?

Several years back, I posted several times about my Great-nephew Miles. At that time he was in high school and working toward making enough money to finance a year as an exchange student in Argentina. He made that goal, loved his time there and made lots of friends and became fluent in Español... Sign in to see full entry.

How About That?

An 80 year-old with her first iPhone and no idea how to use it. How about that? In fact, I'm a bit scared of it. I feel so dumb. But, I'm going to have lots of help from my Sweetie Family members who have always wanted me to have one. Well, if I can't do it, it will definitely not be their fault. It...

Spoilsport

If I had gone to the Renaissance Festival, Sis tells me I, could have gotten a massage, in the forest, from a guy in a kilt. That message reminded me how I tried several times to get my husband to dress for Halloween parties as a Scot. He was built just right for it. He had great calves and muscular...

Where Went The Normal?

After all that pouring-down rain we had a month ago, now we're as dry as a bone. The leaves on the maple tree out front are starting to scrunch up, turn yellow-brown, and fall off of the tree without even turning the beautiful fall colors that we always have in October. The cicadas don't sing... Sign in to see full entry.

A Woman With No Hair - Part II

I'm not sure whether there are more bald women these days, or whether it is just that media shows more of them. We see bald children and bald women who are temporarily bald because of cancer treatment. We see young people shaving their heads in support of them, and for other reasons. And yet, it...

A Woman With No Hair

I was visiting my son, his wife, and their four sons in Portland, OR some years back. On Sunday I went to their church with them. We sat in a pew about half-way back. The beautiful choir music and congregational singing had finished, the offering plates passed, and the sermon had begun. All was... Sign in to see full entry.

National Encouragement Day Is Almost Over For 2017

Preacher said that today is National Encouragement Day. I Google searched that and, sure enough, there it was with all kinds of ideas on how to encourage others. He is just bubbling with encouragement for others since he, and his, came through the Irma Hurricane with only a few hours of power outage... Sign in to see full entry.
