Foldover – California Bear Style

June 30th, 2008 · No Comments

Bing’s friend served me a foldover this morning on a nice Pfaltzgraff plate. He made it in modified California Bear Style: whole wheat bread with peanut butter on the entire slice and then folded over. True CBS is with honey added. He likes the physics of it better. I never thought of putting the peanut […]

Well, this is a great note

June 30th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I spent the night cleaning yucky, yucky stuff. I scraped, I scrubbed, I cleaned the place and then I went to the beach and cleaned it. Then, I went upstairs and cleaned some more and managed to get a rattlesnake into a trash bag. Before I closed it up, though, I heard weird sounds and […]

Sunday morning once again

June 29th, 2008 · No Comments

Ah, Grandpa in the kitchen making pancakes – AmeliaJake all stretched out on the sofa, well partly sitting up. I’m stretching my leg muscles; they ache from mowing the lawn, I think. I totally plodded through it yesterday. I’m thinking of taking some aspirin and making myself a cure. Then I think I will stretch […]

Long trip for Bing’s friend

June 28th, 2008 · No Comments

That Georgia guy is coming today – all the way from Warner-Robins. It is a long, long trip but at least he doesn’t have a long, long trailer behind him. Now, most don’t know to what I am referring; it is just not a passing nod to RV’s. I’m talking about the movie with Lucille […]

Red Dragon

June 27th, 2008 · No Comments

I once read the book Red Dragon which started the Hannibal series and the whole thing about it was this serial murderer was in the act of “becoming” the Red Dragon. He referred to his “becoming” and even ate a famous painting to get it actually inside him. What this has to do with me […]

Creamy or Crunchy or Extra Crunchy?

June 27th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The question has been posed about a little variety in my foldover consumption. Well, I guess my younger days were my creamy phase – and I held on to the tradition long after crunchy was introduced. I don’t remember when I started with the crunchy preference, and, as I think about it, I believe I […]

Still sitting, mind wandering

June 26th, 2008 · No Comments

Yes, I’m back because I started thinking about evil plots in movies that were foiled at the last second. You know, the kind of things that could change history and I am thinking, “Well, gee, in real life, the odds are against all of them failing.” And come to think of it, I’ve watched a […]

Sitting, but running in circles

June 26th, 2008 · 2 Comments

I am perched on the corner of the sofa on the porch, but inside my skin I am running around in circles, overwhelmed by all the stuff I should be doing. This is the old clinging to the roof like a flattened squirrel scenario  – wanting to end my agony by just stopping the clinging […]

Tiffany and Sydney

June 24th, 2008 · 4 Comments

This is (I think) Tiffany and (I know) Sydney. It was taken when poor Tippy was still alive but he was always so shy I don’t think it can be him. Tiffany is the cat at Mother’s who came into the house shortly after Tippy’s sudden and totally unexpected death. I am hesitant to post […]

Sprint – the heart attack maker

June 24th, 2008 · No Comments

My husband opened our cell phone bill . . .  somewhere around $750. Fortunately, we had noted a seemingly inaccurate accounting of minutes on the Internet a few days ago, accompanied by the announcement that some statements weren’t available due to a change in their accounting/billing system. So he did not grab his chest and […]
