Global warming is not outside my window

February 28th, 2010 · No Comments

Fresh snow is resting on the neighbor’s house – otherwise known as “the green house”; snow on that roof is usually my first indicator of the day’s weather trend. And the bushes are bending with snow. I don’t particularly mind this; it has been a trying few months and the weather-encouraged reclusive hibernation provides a […]

Psychic Chile shaking

February 27th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I had trouble sleeping last night and finally I got up about about five and with bleary eyes looked at the breaking news on the computer. An 8.8 earthquake had hit Chile, about 200 miles SSW of Santiago. I know that South America is actually shifted farther east than North America and that daylight was […]

Hairdresser day

February 26th, 2010 · 1 Comment

I am going to get my hair trimmed, colored and styled today. It will take two hours – the color process, dontcha know. I still have to put on my socks and shoes and find my Sudoku book before I get in the car and drive over to Main Street. This morning I wandered around […]

I am sitting here in my special little spot, after having stood in the doorway to the main gathering room at The Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse and  shushed them all to whispers. I am sitting here and I am going to watch Julia and Julie . . . or maybe it is Julie and […]

A dark house

February 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

I have always taken it for granted that a house would be dark at night, but many times in the past years since younger generations have been living with me, lights have often been left on. I don’t like to wake up to a house and find lights brightly burning, but that has often been […]

Old lady

February 23rd, 2010 · 1 Comment

I have been thinking about the movie Five Graves to Cairo lately. Tonight I turned on the TV to Turner Classic Movies and there it was, starting. I called Der Bingle and told him and then I started to watch. I thought, “Oh, heck, I’ll just lie down and turn the light off and watch […]

Wal-Mart, prescription glasses

February 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

My son wears glasses and his insurance covers Wal-Mart; so he ordered a pair from there. The promised delivery date was between 7 – 10 days.  That was on February 8th. When Alison checked today I was in the store and when I met her at the front door, she told me they still weren’t […]

Highway Six – dividing line

February 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

US 6 – The Grand Army of the Republic Highway – runs coast to coast and here in Indiana, in Northeastern Indiana, it is a weather dividing line. The East Noble School Corporation straddles it and so, with rain to the south and sleet and snow right here a few blocks south of US 6 […]
