Death's Surprise

The meadow is strewn with red and gold, yellow and brown amongst the carpet of green, and yet the trees have not let go their grasp of the bright colors of autumn. The colors are at their peak, and the weather exhilarating. The beginning of the turning, Color creeping day by day, Green is going,... Sign in to see full entry.

I Don't Go Looking For Trouble...But...

I knew it was on its way here. The smell of trouble has been in the air, especially around the weekends. It seems to come looking for me...trouble that is. As much as I try to stay away from trouble, it is impossible to stay free from its environs. Tonight, an hour or so ago, I noticed there was a... Sign in to see full entry.

Who Stole The Cheese?

My quandary is quaquaversal at this time. Not one person who lives in this low-income housing for senior citizens is exempt from suspicion, not even my Sis, who has called me in to help her prove her innocence. It all began with this note that was attached to the bulletin board in the community... Sign in to see full entry.

You, But Not Me

I'm finally going to go get my flu shot for this year. I've been putting it off but my sons are so insistent, and I am a believer in flu shots helping out with a terrible disease that kills many people. Actually, I have no idea how many flu shots I administered myself in the years that I was an... Sign in to see full entry.

What's With Wiggy?

The winds of autumn blow now and then, sometimes lightly fluttering the yellow leaves of the shagbark hickory, sometimes hard enough to already be making bare the top of the sugar maple.

Suddenly At Midnight

All was dreamy quiet and I was falling asleep when at midnight, almost on the dot, without thunder or flashing lightning, the heavens opened and a sudden downpour of flooding rain began falling on the roof, the grounds, the streets.... I jumped up to see if the bedroom window was totally closed and... Sign in to see full entry.

Staighten Up And Fly Right

Just be here and keep posting I tell myself repeatedly. I don't want to fall by the wayside, but I fear that is where I'm headed if I don't straighten up and fly right. So I'll see what I can come up with for tonight. This morning was dark, gray and damp with lowering clouds, rumblings of thunder... Sign in to see full entry.

When a man loves a woman, and she leaves him for another man, leaving him wounded and hurting, ashamed, and not knowing what to do next, unable to think how to handle the situation, he is not the only one who hurts. Shock envelopes family members who had no idea there was anything wrong with the... Sign in to see full entry.

The Day Of The Genie

The day before the Baltimore Beauty flew away home, Genie Joel spirited we three away to his magic aerie where David dances, and Joel prepares fine and fancy things to eat and drink, music plays, and Marcel does his share in the entertainment. We laugh. We linger. We imbibe. We hug. We share until... Sign in to see full entry.
