Yesterday we trimmed bushes . . .

September 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Why am I mentioning something as mundane as hedge-trimming? Oh, I don’t know . . . maybe because my grandson used an authentic Ghurka knife to assist those of us who were using clippers and snippers and a saw. I think he was born in the wrong era. Which gets me to thinking . . […]

stacking firewood

September 27th, 2008 · No Comments

Sitting down, cooling off, drinking iced tea . . . becasue we stacked firewood this morning. A loadful. I don’t know how much that is because the fellow we buy wood from – David Reidenbach – has always sold it in loads. Maybe at one time my mother and father knew. We now have a […]

what do they call it

You know, something comes back to haunt you. Or you hand somone a bag in a little prank and the next thing you know, you are holding the bag  – unless it has a lot of money in it and then they wind up holding it . . .  and you gave it to them. […]

Yes, I am foiled in my attempt to make funny at AmeliaJake, who is, by the way, the most wonderful, charming, courageous, loyal, intelligent, witty, delightful person I have ever met. I am sorry for my attempted little joke. I apologize AmeliaJake. You are the most wonderful, charming, courageous . . .

secret update

September 24th, 2008 · No Comments

Hello there. Bob here. I managed to get a couple of quick snaps of AmeliaJake in her foil hat. The first is while we were waiting and the second is after she received the message. Oddly enough, I, Bob, heard nothing out of the ordinary – just the slow swish of the ceiling fan. Notice […]

Diet cranberry juice

September 24th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Ocean Spray now makes a cranberry juice product that has 5 calories per serving. The Light version has 40. I love cranberry juice, so I bought it. It isn’t as good as the stronger brew, but it is delightful to just drink it freely – from a nice glass with ice. I don’t know why […]

September 24th, 2008 · No Comments

I forgot yesterday. Mother asked if I had forgotten; she knows me well enough not to ask if I had called.  I forgot to call David for firewood – a couple of loads for me and a load for Mother, cut in short lengths for her stove. I don’t have to make a note of […]

Tomatoes

September 24th, 2008 · No Comments

I think I am tomatoed out for a while; the idea of placing a slice of tomato on my tongue and savoring the moment no longer appeals to me. I see a tomato on a vine and think, “Oh, another tomato.” Not that I still don’t like them – I am not to the “Oh, […]

sniffles

September 23rd, 2008 · No Comments

A lot of us have had a cold here, and I’ve got it now. I also had a toothache, but my dentist feels it may be an old filling going bad, so  Dec. 4th I will get a new one. Fortunately, and knock on wood, it doesn’t hurt of late. Oh, yeah, we also have […]
