I sat, head down, in the Peanut Butter Cafe

July 31st, 2009 · 1 Comment

Last night, having searched for most of the afternoon for the shut-off valve to the unisex bathroom on the first floor of the PBC&R, I threw caution to the wind and flipped the house shut-off main valve and started to change out the fill valve. When I reached underneath the tank to work with the […]

a) My nose is still tingling. b) My mind seems disorganized. c) I have no motivation. d) I am irritable. Well, all things are probably being observed, but only one is the lingering response of skunking. Can you indentify the correct answer.

A few minutes ago I glanced at a news site and saw a headline about a vet’s traumatic brain injury. And I thought, “Oh, wow, did a dog bite through his head?”  Then I went, “Oh.” Yes, I myself am appalled by that. I think I tend to say veteran when it comes to soldiers […]

AmeliaJake, step away from the computer . . .

Hi there. I am a person who checks things out; no, not for safety purposes or legitimacy, I mean if someone mentions something I will be curious enough to push the button or open the door or, in web times such as these, click over to a site. Now, this is not an entirely horrible […]

July 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Summer and I sat down on the porch sofa when I returned from taking her mother to work and somehow one of us leaned right and the other left and we have been snoozing. It is a long sofa, but not that long, so old legs and young legs entangled and in moments of partial […]

Talk about crazy . . .

July 27th, 2009 · No Comments

It was at 4 am this morning that I had Sydney in the bathtub with ketchup and Dawn dishwashing detergent. We didn’t have any tomato paste in the house, nor stewed tomatoes . . . so it was ketchup . . . ketchup and the Dawn to combat the smell of skunk. I don’t think […]

Crazy lady in Kendallville, Indiana . . . yes, me, AmeliaJake

July 26th, 2009 · No Comments

I was here on the porch at the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse thinking about getting some motivation to do something, anything that would improve the general state of things.

Today Der Bingle is 61, but we had a little party yesterday because he is leaving early today to get back to the Ohio Redoubt of the West Facing Cave. We’ve never been too much of birthday people in our family, but Alison tends to be . . . and this is what came about: […]

I don’t know why I am here

July 24th, 2009 · No Comments

No, no, no . . . this is not a psychological crisis. I just really don’t know why I am here typing on my cow; I have nothing to say. It could be I am hiding out here, grabbing a wee bit more  downtime before I get to doing something – and let me tell […]
