That’s for As Time Goes By – the British sitcom with Judith Dench as Jean and Geoffrey Palmer as Lionel. I was thinking this morning about Lionel – in fact, the episode where someone remarks to Jean that “Lionel is kinder than he wants to be.” That is about the best I can hope for, […]

The humidity . . . the humidity

August 29th, 2008 · No Comments

It is up around 80% and it feels so  . . . . moist. When the temperature climbs, I suppose it will feel – oh, dear, now what is the word? Sultry. Yes, Sultry. It will be sultry. Because there will be an overabundance of sult in the air? Who knows where these words come […]

Tremendously wonderful dog

Just thought we’d remind you . . . not that we don’t feel for Shane . . . but this is THE Sydney, your buddy, the chewer or Doc Marten tongues. Remember when you found the second shoe on the second morning and sighed, “Sydney, I thought I could trust you.”

Secret post about Biden

August 28th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Don’t be surprised, but the Cafe & Roadhouse seems to teem with GOP folks. And a couple of BullMoosers. We don’t mind folks coming in and speaking their minds and wearing their political buttons and sporting their bumper stickers. This election, we think something is terribly awry, but then we are not recognized analysts, so […]

We been sitting here in The Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse, looking at pictures of the Obama Speech Stage at Invesco Stadium. Takes your breath away. My goodness. This is surreal and it’s very scary that it is sure real.

Seven pizzas

August 27th, 2008 · No Comments

We made six large and one small pizza tonight – and I was doughgirl. You get in a groove and I just kept going until I had quite a stack. We put them in the refrigerator and starting chopping ingredients. Other people put everything together and did the oven work and I grabbed a few […]

A fire today

August 25th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Yes, it is August and yes, the temperature is up there, but today circumstances led us to have a fireplace fire. We have been working steam cleaning the basement, having discovered that jerky grandkids had spilled a lot of things. We have attacked yucky gunk on three different days and today was our finale.

August 23rd, 2008 · 29 Comments

UPDATE: 2013 Not very many people read this blog and that’s okay with me because I it’s about me writing and not about me being read. Today I noticed that on Labor Day, 2013 clicks had been recorded on this Pioneer Woman post. It was Memorial Day – maybe there was a marathon of her […]
