Tomorrow and Sunday are Apple Festival here in Kendallville. It has been raining a lot this week, but the local workers have been out there getting ready. I have seen them; I admire them. Today is going to be a tough one for them – the high will be 52 and there is an 80% […]

In one hour and 45 minutes, give or take, I am going to be in Fort Wayne with the “one whose leg is in a cast.” Right now I am on the sofa wearing underwear and a long San Diego shirt. Last evening Summer ventured that she would like to do the same, but didn’t […]

Long day goes south

September 28th, 2011 · 1 Comment

We were busy here – sort of a bubbling hodge-podge of activity without much of import getting done or, for that matter, enjoyed.

A challenge for AmeliaJake

September 25th, 2011 · No Comments

I foolishly proclaimed today NICE DAY because I have been especially unkind of late and people are complaining. Obviously, it was a shoot from the hip decision. How can I possibly be nice for a day?
