More Will Come

One wonderfully warm day and a large wasp is out and trying to mark his territory on our balcony. Yes, he is moving very slowly and basking on the railing, checking things out, not much flying (if any). I could easily swat him and be done with it, or spray him with immediate death, but more will... Sign in to see full entry.

Sliced Ketchup Is On The Way

One thing leads to another and changes are explosive, wisdom increases, ABs become more definitive and the technical device becomes tinier. Anything you have today is outdated tomorrow. I've known that all of my adult life but I never imagined in my wildest dreams that the ketchup in my bottle might... Sign in to see full entry.

Villanelle Pettifog

Quite often, when I am writing a post (which I do less and less as time moves along), or a letter, or an email even, I waste quite a bit of time wordsmithing for clarity of meaning of content, or style. I can't help it, it was bred into me. Ribcage carries on that family trait having learned it from... Sign in to see full entry.

When You Fall On Your Keister Keep Your Eyes On The Sky

It will fool you if you are not careful. Our beautiful morning sunshine with azure-blue background smacks of warmth and summer breezes. Instead we are in the midst of a winter-like spring with record-breaking freezing temperatures. I see a young fellow down at the parking lot, messing around with... Sign in to see full entry.

Stucco And Beams

It is not quite the same looking at beautiful images of forests and mountains, desserts and shorelines, of waves rolling in and breaking on the sand or against the rocks at the foot of majestic cliffs, as it was to be there in person, sometimes alone. It is not quite the same, but close, when that... Sign in to see full entry.

I Forgot To Pause

Spouting riposte to a criticism or a comment with which I disagree is one thing I usually quickly rue. I am definitely one that needs to pause and to consider, and not say what had first come to mind. I try to watch that, but I am so, so human and my tongue often flaps at both ends before I stop to...

Thinking Up Stuff

Used to, when I was out and about (I'm holed up here at the time being), it wasn't too difficult to think up interesting things to write about. My favorite was to go out to breakfast on the way home from work (I was a nurse on the graveyard shift) carrying a book and a pad of paper and a pen. The... Sign in to see full entry.

Diary Of An Injured Grandma

It was eight days ago I fell and broke my rib. In all that time since, I have managed to refrain from coughing (because that is very painful) by faithfully using my Aerobika to keep my lungs open and to breathe deeply. Also, in all that time, I have not sneezed, not once...until just a few minutes... Sign in to see full entry.

No Place To Hide

What do you do with a phone pest? Yes he is kin. Yes I love him, but I just don't want to talk to him again today. How do I not hurt his feelings but get rid of him for now without telling him some kind of lies? He thinks he is the authority on everything. He, like, interogates for every detail of...

It's Not An April Fool's Joke

In addition to my falling and breaking my rib, Ribcage fell and broke his leg (upper femur) so we are both stove in. He is a bit grouchy about that and I don't blame him. I'm still trying not to cough or sneeze or hiccup or laugh. Needless to say, I am not entertaining anyone for Easter Dinner. Snow... Sign in to see full entry.
