Brownie Time

The older I get, the longer it takes me to do anything that I used to do in a flash or the snap of a finger. I assume everyone is that way as they age, but I may be wrong. Perhaps it is just me. Tomorrow, Son#3, P.D., has his birthday #55. I've been trying to get things done all day for a little bit... Sign in to see full entry.

Time And Tide

She fell on her bum again. Didn't bother her a bit except for a bit of frustration. She flipped over to her knees and crawled a few feet to where she could pull up on the easy chair near her and begin trying all over again to gain her balance and take a few steps. I'm afraid it sounds like me at 80... Sign in to see full entry.

The Lollard and the Famulus shared tiffin one fine day, he dressed in wicked wear she in lace camiknicker. All who passed by were prone to snicker. The Lollard in his vow to poverty left without paying the tab, Unhappy Famulus went through the roof and vanished completely in one big poof. Poor... Sign in to see full entry.

When The Company Goes Home

Quiet reigns for a bit, but not long. That's when Ribcage comes out of his quarters and tries to make up for everything he didn't get to say when only women were having a good time and he was staying out of the way. I can breath deeply and slowly once more because I don't have to be funny or wise,... Sign in to see full entry.

Pretty Baby

Looks a lot like me (80 years ago). She is my darling great-granddaughter and her sister Marianna is growing more beautiful every day. She is in kindergarten now. Don't you just love happy little ones. Sign in to see full entry.

Three Old Ladies

She has always had very short haircuts, even after she got older and her hair turned gray, so I was pretty surprised when she arrived in Kansas City this time with long limp hair hanging about her face, the top held out of her eyes by a big clip. When I exclaimed my surprise at her long hair, she... Sign in to see full entry.

After Dark

I don't know about the antelope, but we live in an area where deer play and freely roam. P.D. and Phil see them often, day or night on their property or even walking down the road. Sis sees them out her third floor window just about anytime from the wooded area there. They cross the road and graze... Sign in to see full entry.

The Microburst Aftermath

They are cutting my favorite tree down this week--one that I have loved ever since I have lived here. It makes me sad, but I have lots of pictures I have taken of this tree through the years. I was hoping to see it through another fall, just one more, but it is not going to make it. Its problem... Sign in to see full entry.

A Speech Worth Listening To

For those of you who despise the fact that Donald Trump is our POTUS, we must remember that as former President Barack Obama said, Trump is not the cause of our problems, he is a symptom of the problems of our country's government. Former President Obama is in Champaign-Urbana, IL where he received... Sign in to see full entry.

A Nonuple For Me

I knew the amount of points I got for my word in Scrabble long before I had any idea what the word was. Well, I knew the word I played was "QUIETING" but what I didn't know was that in this case that word score was a nonuple. I don't think I had ever even heard of a nonuple before and I certainly...
