Been away

Cameron, Summer and I took a bit of a side trip up to Scott – the homestead of the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse.  We don’t have internet there and, so I tried to post via my phone. It wouldn’t take my password to get into WordPress.  I don’t know if that is because there […]

Not a bad trip

May 28th, 2010 · 1 Comment

A rare moment in my life – I slept for 30 minutes while my alarm clock was doing its horrible sound. You know the sound, the one that makes you leap over the bed and lunge at the clock to turn it off before you go mad. So I was running a little later than […]

The day before

May 26th, 2010 · No Comments

Tomorrow is Kingman Fraternal Cemetery Day. I drive down with a big pot of geraniums located in the backseat –  seat belt holding them in place – and a little cooler next to me in the front. And a camera. Right now, my rear end is sore from working with the mighty wet/dry vac at […]

Geraniums are in my garage

May 24th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Big pots of geraniums, each with a spike in it and each waiting for the addition of some sort of ivy looking stuff.  I looked in Mother’s bank statements to see to whom she had written a check for flowers last May and found Nature Scene. I looked and looked for the place and then […]

It’s a jungle out there

May 24th, 2010 · No Comments

I mowed at Mother’s last Wednesday or Thursday and yesterday, when we took Shane and Sydney up there to romp and to share charcoaled hot dogs and brats with us, we had to mow again. Zounds! And bushes are growing longer tentacles to grab me as the mower skirted them. Do you know I found […]

Soon it will be time for Breaking Bad

May 23rd, 2010 · No Comments

According to the computer, I have eight minutes until another episode of Breaking Bad begins. I got hooked on it a couple of years ago and now we must be coming up on the end of the third season. I think it alternates with Mad Men, which is another soap opera type of show on […]

The sound of Wubba

May 22nd, 2010 · No Comments

We are adapting here with Shane, or maybe Shane is adapting to us. Frankly, I find the sound of the loudly squeaking Wubba comforting – it says Shane is close by and Shane is enjoying himself. I believe I will record the Wubba-ing, maybe even film it. Perhaps we should play along with our home-made […]

A heck of a day

May 21st, 2010 · No Comments

We took Shane to Mother’s yesterday – we being Cameron and I. We had the leash that is like an infinite slinky; we had a 30-foot aircraft cable; we had the “when all else fails, squeak the Wubba toy.  He was so good in backyard, we were able to let him off leash and he […]

Yesterday Sydney and I stopped by to check if Mother’s monument had been erected yet, since it had been promised by Memorial Day. It was there. Dogs aren’t allowed in the cemetery, but Sydney stayed in the car. The cemetery is one that is not laid out in straight rows with a couple of perimeter […]
