ooooooh, a little miscue

September 30th, 2009 · 2 Comments

We kind of all realize that Alison has a little problem with over-reminding people of things and events. Kind of like: gonna do that now? gonna do that? gonna do that? not gonna forget to do that? Then, today, September 30, when I took her to work at 6:30 am. she didn’t have anything to […]

just a quick word

September 29th, 2009 · 1 Comment

I was watching “Any Given Sunday” with Al Pacino and Dennis Quaid because I was trying to figure out with which movie I had confused it. And then I sat on the remote and I am now watching a Ken Burns special on Mount Desert which I think is a part of a series on […]

The situation

September 28th, 2009 · No Comments

A while back, I mentioned in a post that the patrons of the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse (and the Foo Bar) were distressed that I appeared to be ignoring them, going off in my own fugues and distractions. Heck, take my word for it; I’m not going to search and link to it. (Well, […]

Trip to Indianapolis

September 27th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Alison and I headed on down to Options today to see Colin for the first time now that he has settled in. He has lost weight and is a lot calmer and seems content. After about 30 minutes he told his mother he guessed we had seen everything and could go. Then he talked for […]

Out behind Mother’s

September 25th, 2009 · No Comments

I was following Mother up through the yard to the back deck when I heard a loud shout. I ignored it and we went inside and did a few little things and then I looked out back through the screen and exclaimed, “Holy Smoke!” And smoke is what it was, only I didn’t have my […]

Walter Cronkite’s voice

September 23rd, 2009 · 1 Comment

There is a good thing about being in my early sixties: I know Walter Cronkite’s voice the second I hear it. So if the television is playing in the background on the Military Channel or the History Channel International as it so often is, I am alerted that there is a good show coming on […]

Thinking of mice and men

September 22nd, 2009 · No Comments

I thought I was sleepy; apparently, I am not. I have been lying down thinking about Of Mice and Men, thanks to my granddaughter’s English assignment. Of course, there has been talk of symbolism and foreshadowing has made an impression on her. More so than on me. I’m a lot older – I can deal […]

Yo, I’m here

September 22nd, 2009 · No Comments

I have been sticking my head in various nooks and crannies, some real and some not, while trying to figure out where some real things have been stashed and  also the places some of my ideas want and/or need to go. And I haven’t figured it out yet, but that’s okay. I’ll keep working on […]

Pizza afternoon

September 19th, 2009 · 2 Comments

I will have pictures and I will add them, but right now I just want to say there has been a lot of home-made pizza making going on in the kitchen here in the Peanut Butter Cafe &  Roadhouse. Green peppers, red peppers, yellow peppers, orange peppers; onions; mushrooms; pepperoni; tomatoes; sausage and different cheeses […]

No curbside pick-up in Kendallville

September 19th, 2009 · No Comments

It used to be that on the Saturday of “clean-up week”, you could put your cast-offs at the curb and they would be picked up. The city stopped doing that some years ago and instead just issued free tickets to the transport site for the landfill. Soooooo, we accumulated some – shall we say – […]
