Pioneer woman – Ree Smith Drummond

January 30th, 2008 · 8 Comments

UPDATE: MARCH 22, 2010 It has been two years since I made three or four entries in this blog about The Pioneer Woman. At that time the average person  was just finding out she was Ree Drummond, wife of Ladd, member of a rich ranching family in Oklahoma. I think she had won “Best Kept […]

I’ve have seen Joe Dorko

January 30th, 2008 · No Comments

Aha, I was just sitting here with the TV on Fort Wayne’s CBS at a low volume and when I shifted my laptop, I caught a glimpse of the screen. (You have to realize that some of my mornings I look at the laptop while in a deep sofa slouch; well, you don’t have to, […]

Cold coming.

January 29th, 2008 · No Comments

I must protect the little diesel with some more Diesel 911 because the temperature is supposed to plummet later today and over night. Well, if plummet is the word, then I guess it is supposed to happen fast, and checking in with the weather site, I see that a significant drop is looming during a […]

Dr. Doug (Jansen) and my teeth

January 28th, 2008 · No Comments

In the dentist chair at 9:00 in the morning. Hey, that’s not bad; it’s getting up and being clean at that time. I am more of a later in the day person, not to mention an on my own schedule person. My teeth are fine; I should floss more but they are okay. Most of […]

Thank God I’m tone deaf

January 27th, 2008 · No Comments

I used to hate being tone deaf. Actually, I didn’t know I was until midway through elementary school. I should have guessed. My mother asked me to sing Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and then laughed; well, I remember that moment. I asked what was wrong and she said, “Oh, nothing.” Yeah, right. Then in second […]

Another ornament – Jake

January 25th, 2008 · No Comments

I forgot to look and see what J.A.K.E.S. stands for; that is, I forgot to look again. I looked once but I can’t remember. Anyway, maybe it is a secret since it involves our dear Jakey whom we dearly love, but who does have a tendency to run afoul of the law. Jake has many […]

Dorko

January 24th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Some things I skim over and Dorko was one of them; that’s the last name of the new head guy at Lutheran Hospital. Then I saw it again . . . and it registered. Now, I feel for this man, I really do. I know he is a very successful man, and no doubt quite […]

Charley

January 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

  This is Charley, the trolley. He got the name Charley when Quentin was little; he misheard the trolley word and so Charley was initiated into our world. Charley used to run around a little tiny railroad, but over the years lost his track . . . or we lost track of it. He stayed […]

It’s me: Tasty Boy

January 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

Hi there, I’m the Gingerbread Man. AmeliaJake was going to write about me and how sweet I look hanging on the tree. Then she saw the way the camera captured my facial expression and she is backing away slowly. By the way, it only appears as if I am carrying a bat; that is the […]

Taking down my favorite tree

January 22nd, 2008 · 1 Comment

This is the tree in my sitting room; it is artificial, so sometimes I forget to take it down. It is my favorite tree because it has the traditional lights and my favorite ornaments . . . because most of them have a special place in my heart. Usually I have to tie it to […]
