Season Finale of Breaking Bad

May 31st, 2009 · No Comments

I am watching The Fugitive – well, sort of watching it – so I will not forget to tune in to see the season finale of Breaking Bad. Der Bingle told me one of the promos showed someone being zipped up in a body bag; just now, another promo quoted a reviewer as saying the […]

May 29th, 2009 · 2 Comments

This is Flowerama in Iowa City as LZP approached for the Harmony Cemetery trip. This is a picture of Flowerama from their website. Sydney would have to sleep for two days after sniffing all these displays.

Bayer takes on BC Powders

May 28th, 2009 · No Comments

When Der Bingle was in Georgia, he introduced me to BC Powder – a pain reliever that came in powdered form (obviously) inside a package that resembled a stick of gum. For some reason, it tickled my fancy – made me think of Driving Miss Daisy, perhaps. Besides the package looked so retro and bland, […]

So, sort of in a funk

May 26th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Yes, I am not finding any movies on the cable channels that I want to have on in the background. I was busy these past few days showing support for the Memorial Day Marathon; I’ve been on subs, on carriers, on destroyers, on battlegrounds and sitting in the cooler throwing a baseball at a wall. […]

Harmony Cemetery – remembered family

May 24th, 2009 · No Comments

LZP went down on Friday and said, “We remember” at the cemetery where his father and grandparents and uncle are buried. And he sent these pictures to his brother, Der Bingle. This is where Der Bingle’s grandparents rest – Lydia and William A. Vance Sr. Liddy and W.A., that’s what their contemporaries called them. I […]

It’s early

May 24th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Sydney has it in his head I should be up at about, oh, somewhere around six thirtyish in the morning. And he thinks then he should go back to bed. I guess he has heard me say that I like the sunlight of mid-summer early mornings when the whole day stretches out ahead of you, […]

Thursday

May 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

I have much to tell about my trip to Kingman, but I’ll wait until the next post to do, or maybe the one after that – stories of the Bus Stop restaurant and lunch with my cousins and little quirks of the trip. But right now here is one video. The sun was warm, the […]

News in the Dandelion Wars

May 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

Following a period of quiet on the Indiana front, we were surprised by the drone of low-flying plane . . . and then the propaganda came from the sky: This picture and on the back this message: SURRENDER BEFORE YOU ARE DESTROYED. THE DANDELION WILL PREVAIL. YOU CANNOT WIN. Well, we have rallied the Home […]

Kingman Fraternal Cemetery

May 19th, 2009 · No Comments

This is where I’ll be going Thursday morning come dawn: This is where my father is buried, my grandparents, my great-grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. The man who taught my father to play Euchre, an Indiana tradition for those of us who came before video games, is there too, not far from Daddy’s grave. The […]
