Sydney’s pain shot

November 29th, 2009 · No Comments

Sometimes you are just so fooled by a dog –  or maybe it’s that you want to be. Yesterday, the vet drew blood to test enzymes for pancreatitis and gave Sydney and antibiotic shot and a pain shot, along with more pills to of the same purpose. Do you remember how Sydney wanted to do […]

A long night

November 28th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Sydney paced most of the night, trying to lie down and getting right back up to pace some more. He went in and out and in and out again . . . and again. So at 6 am we called the answering service at the vet’s and they just called back and he is going […]

The icebox cube

November 27th, 2009 · No Comments

I’m old enough to have lived with a generation of people who called a refrigerator an “icebox” because that is exactly what it was; and then there was the generation who kept calling refrigerators iceboxes out of habit; actually, I still sometimes refer to it that way and my grandkids understand what I mean. Well, […]

God bless Scott’s Senior Citizen Day

November 25th, 2009 · 3 Comments

YES! Tuesday is 6% off at Scott’s (Kroger’s) for senior citizen – that would be 55 and above. Well, yesterday I was in the store with many other Thanksgiving shoppers – not just senior ones – and I was just being my own little self, thinking of thawing times and onions and yams – Yuck […]

East Noble’s two-hour delay

November 24th, 2009 · No Comments

Aha! It is after eight o’clock and the delay has not been extended; Summer was betting they would close, but I the all-knowing grandma who just happens to have interviewed Craig Ream about delay/closing procedures am wise to the fact that if they haven’t changed status by 8, it’s not going to happen. Sooooo, it […]

The Pilgrim Tree

November 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

Yesterday, out of necessity, I set about getting the dining room slightly ready for Thanksgiving, which is about the level that I do anything – slightly. Got out the better silverware, washed it and put it out on a side table and threw a napkin over it – a cloth one, probably from Faith Methodist […]

Sam’s culinary past

November 21st, 2009 · 1 Comment

Actually, this may be what he eats today in his finishing up years of high school. Sam is LZP’s second son; the first son just earned his second stripe in the AF. I don’t know what Joe – the second-striped first son eats – but from 4th grade, here are Sam’s recipes, which are (gasp) […]

This nagging urge

November 18th, 2009 · No Comments

For once this post is not centered on ME, you know, the great and wonderful AmeliaJake. I know, it’s hard for me to believe as well. Darn hard. But, on with it. A few days ago, I was reading something someone had written -yes, I often do this – and this time I got a […]

Everything in its place

November 17th, 2009 · 3 Comments

When Mother passed away – and right before – there was quite a bit of paperwork. I remember thinking many times, “I will put this in a SAFE SPOT” or “I will put this HERE” or “I’ll remember I’m putting it in this cute little wooden box, drawer, shelf, elf’s pocket . . .” Well, […]

I have no patience

November 16th, 2009 · 2 Comments

My father used to tell me that a lot; no, he used to shake his head and say, “I tried and tried to teach you patience.”  I just couldn’t catch on and with today’s technology, I find I am reminded of it often. Like today, when I am expecting a package and the store has […]
