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...

Meet Esther Rose

She carries her great-grandma's middle name, and her great-great-grandma's name. My mother was Rose and I am Betty Rose and now we have in our beloved family a tiny Esther Rose. In the US Army, Michael was a combatives instructor, and still loves all that kind of stuff, but I have a feeling he will... Sign in to see full entry.

Tomorrow Is Special

In the morning I will become Great-Grandma #3. Already I have Marianna, age 7, and Vivienne, 2 in January. They live here in Missouri within an hour or so drive on a pretty day. Joining them tomorrow will be Baby Esther, second cousin to the other two and she will live in the Orlando, FL area. Son... Sign in to see full entry.

Americans In Their Hearts

I've had an earworm all day today with just a little difference from what it really is supposed to be. I keep singing "If I were a Dreamer...." instead of "If I were a rich man..." though there is not really much difference between the two. I just cannot get over the sadness of these young people...

Arctic B-B-Blast

Hey! We don't live in the Arctic, and it isn't winter. What's going on here? The only one of us that is anywhere near the Arctic is Grandson Dalton who is an Army Officer in Fairbanks, Alaska. The rest of us? We should still be celebrating Autumn, but all I see out the window is white. No, we are... Sign in to see full entry.

Keeping Up Fun

Anyone still here that remembers ArGee from Blogit past. He is such an interesting man and a very good writer. I just recently ordered a book that long ago his mother wrote. It is about his parents who were missionaries to Nazi Occupied Poland and had to leave during WWII but later went back again.... Sign in to see full entry.

Just A State Of Mind...

It chaps my hide to have to let people do things for me when I would rather be doing it for myself. I resist it like it was the plague. Most everything I do for myself, but since I stopped driving about a year ago I do let people pick me up to go places, but.... I'd rather do it myself and I'd... Sign in to see full entry.

I Have A Date

Yes, I do have a date. I have it right here in my hand--a big Medjool one. I'm nibbling on it with my coffee. P.D. brought a container of them to me yesterday. I don't get them often because they contain so much natural sugar which I really don't need. The bane of the pre-diabetic is sugar, whether... Sign in to see full entry.

The Price We Pay For Love

It would seem that since I became an octogenarian a couple of years ago I have developed a certain habit of being curious about what still-living past celebrities of my generation look like now. I can't seem to help myself. It isn't that I want to compete, I'm just very curious. I don't gloat when I... Sign in to see full entry.
