Moving Right Along

Winter isn't even here yet and Ribcage is wishing for spring. It's cold out there and his car is covered with snow even though he has cleaned it off three times already. The street in front of my nephew's house is being used for an ice-skating rink. The geese are standing on the lake again instead... Sign in to see full entry.

Not Quite There Yet...

...but the ice towers of the Kansas City Concourse are building and the snow is piling up all over town. The fans are sparse at the CHIEFS stadium as the game between them and the Denver Broncos already have so much snow it is hard for me to tell where they are and what they are doing. Before the...

The Last Full Moon of the Decade

One of my favorite night places to be in the month of December in Kansas City, MO is The Plaza all lit up for Christmas Season and everything reflecting in Brush Creek. It is especially great to see the full moon as a part of it all. I haven't gone this year, and I didn't take the photo but I love... Sign in to see full entry.

Fiddler On My Roof

As you know if you have ever seen the movie, or a well-done play of the same name, "the fiddler is a metaphor for survival in a life of uncertainty, precarious as a fiddler on a roof trying to scratch out a pleasant simple tune without breaking his neck." It also represents trying to live in a... Sign in to see full entry.

We began with a guided tour of what had been changed to where, and a "Beyond the Books" explanation of all new and better things booklet of upcoming interesting and fun "Access Your World" activities guide. It was the first time since the total refurbishing of our favorite branch library that the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Tiger Worm Toilet

Giving is made very easy in this day and age. Not only is it made easy, it is made educational, it pulls at the heart strings of children, and it makes one feel indubitably ungenerous if a fund is passed by on Facebook or if only once the offering plate at church is passed by without putting...

Freeze-Dried Humans

"All the tests have been completed thanks to a supply of dead pigs, which were placed in coffins, frozen, physically broken down, dried and buried in the earth with great success." When a word is new to me, I always search it out and study on it. I can't help myself. I've always been a curious... Sign in to see full entry.

Thanksgiving Made Simple

I have done so many Thanksgiving Dinners for so many loved ones for so many years and had so much fun, but now I am old and worn out. I'm never again going to do a turkey (at least I don't intend to). So we are having a Honey Baked Ham instead of turkey. P.D. picked it up this morning and brought it... Sign in to see full entry.

On The Attack

I kind of think he has been turned loose with the go-ahead to fight back. This is going to be interesting (I think). I really can't blame him as it is natural instinct to want to protect oneself from pointing fingers and wagging tongues, whether warranted or no. Since "Flight" is not a natural...
