Is this New Year’s Eve?

December 31st, 2011 · No Comments

It didn’t really dawn on me until about four this afternoon that tonight was New Year’s Eve. Do you know why? Because I was run  over by the flu truck yesterday. I have had about 10 little Wheat Thin crackers in the past two hours, before that -nothing. I did not have the violent vomiting […]

Piles on the ground

December 30th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Down the road from the Grandma up to Scott Town House is a four-square farmhouse on a corner lot; they often put out several inflatables during the Christmas season. I think in the beginning, they left them inflated all the time, as did a lot of people. Well, of course, energy costs are climbing, but […]

Der Bingle flu-ed

December 29th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Well, last night was interesting  – Der Bingle started the barf cycle around 11 pm.  Oh, it was bad . . . for him. I felt okay but couldn’t take one barf bucket to empty and clean without leaving another one in it’s place. Then blankets on, blankets off, blankets on. Chlorox bleach spray is […]

On the sly

December 28th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Yesterday I spoke aloud of packing up the Nutcracker army and Der Bingle was not appalled, but did find the idea unsettling. It might be a bit out of character for me: Okay, you’ve been out; Christmas is over; let’s get you stowed away.  I’m usually the one who sees personalities in little painted faces […]

We have the flu here

December 27th, 2011 · 1 Comment

So far, I am not feeling like puking or doing anything else. Der Bingle is holding his own as well. We’re not sure about Cameron; Colin and Summer have had it for a day or so; Alison thinks she had it to some degree on Christmas Eve Day. (She had a flu shot). Late this […]

Ambassador Duxarwalkin Speech

December 26th, 2011 · No Comments

Ambassador Duxarwaklin from Gnomdelion departed from his prepared remarks this morning, and in disjointed sentences linked  pool tables filled with all yellow balls to White House lawn Easter Egg Hunts where all eggs were yellow. Alarmed aides escorted the ambassador to the hospital, while spokesperson, Dandy Lyon, explained the  ambassador has not been sleeping well. […]

Time does what it always does

December 26th, 2011 · No Comments

Quentin’s visit here has passed; we took him to the Fort Wayne Airport this morning for a 10:21 flight to Detroit and then on to Houston. Everything has a beginning and an end and this time I didn’t focus on the impending end, but on the days as they came along. This morning I came […]
