It Does Make One Wonder

Ribcage: "Did you know it is only three weeks until 2018?" TAPS: "Yeah, I've been thinking about it and wondering if I should make any changes in the way I've been living. Have you any resolutions for the new year?" Ribcage: "Actually I do, but only in my head. I'm not telling a living soul!" TAPS:... Sign in to see full entry.

At the corner where two roads meet across the way within our forested complex, I do believe an insane person lives. He stays to himself, but in a way he shares his life with others here. He has glass patio doors facing both directions with no drapes or blinds and his rooms lit up. He has two... Sign in to see full entry.

Last Year's Christmas Present

Two days have gone by since I posted in this place. Time just keeps rolling along and doing what it does no matter what we wish it would. The sun comes up in the morning (later every day) and goes down every day earlier and earlier. It will do that until sometime in the 24 hours between the 21st and... Sign in to see full entry.

Yesterday being the first day of December, I got in my December mode which is dressing the house in Christmassy attire. I got out my favorite red tablecloth with the gold threads running through it in a plaid formation with some black threads here and there, and a really nice fringe all the way...

President George W. Bush sat across the table from me today at the Corner Cafe in Riverside. All he ordered was one of their famous buttermilk biscuits, no gravy, just the biscuit, and then he only took two bites. I could see him plain as day, and his entourage, even though his time and mine were... Sign in to see full entry.

Fighting In A Tent

When I was a child I thought that tents were for the circus or for a Revival. I had been to both and I liked the circus best. At the tent revival there wasn't much to see except the back of people's heads and a yelling, Bible-thumping preacher. It never occurred to me that sometime I might sleep in...

What A Mother Won't Do For A Son

I'm supposed to be receiving a book in the mail before the week is out. It is not one that I ordered, or one that I probably would have ordered, but it is coming none the less, free gratis, and signed by the author, Stephen Strang. It is being released November 7 and the title is "God And Donald... Sign in to see full entry.

O Tannenbaum

No, I did not put up my Christmas tree today (not either one of them). Actually, I haven't had a Christmas tree up in my place for over ten years....not because I don't just adore a pretty Christmas tree, not because I don't have the Christmas spirit, not because I don't have any decorations. So,... Sign in to see full entry.

Crazy Old Woman

I will have a wonderful and loving Thanksgiving but mostly by myself. Right now Ribcage and I are pretty much watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade but he is aiming for football in his room before long. He has mentioned several times that the pre-game stuff starts at 10:00. He has already told... Sign in to see full entry.
