First the dandelions, now cats

April 30th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Yes, I am a veteran of the Dandelion War, defeated by a juggernaut of flying dandelion seeds and the Garden Gnome Alliance and even nibbling now and then at a Dandelion medicinal supplement. Now it’s the cat. My mother took in a cat, Tiffy, and when she died, Alison and Summer and Robert welcomed her […]

What a comparison

April 30th, 2012 · 3 Comments

A couple of posts down, I pointed out that Gaby De La Cruz was trying to win a van for transportation since he has Chiari Malformation, a condition that allows his brain stem to drop down into the spinal canal opening . . . and, in his case, keeps him from being able to sit […]

April 29th, 2012 · No Comments

Uh, ummm, ah . . . so, yes, we haven’t posted any pictures of Cousin Liliokauna. She is fine, just a little freaked out by the hard freeze warnings we have been experiencing. Emily and I have been telling her there is no need for her to crawl inside an overturned flower pot and have […]

Gaby De La Cruz

April 27th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Okay, I don’t usually do this, but I’m making an exception here. Years ago I wrote an article on CarePages and CaringBridge pages, and while doing the research started following a few people. Gaby was one of them; he has a condition in which his brain is not fully supported and can slip down – […]

Dr. Warrener . . . and your opinion?

April 27th, 2012 · 3 Comments

For a few years I have been doing battle with dandelions and then LZP rallied the Gnome Alliance to aid the little yellow infiltrators. I have since received a good deal of information about dandelions having medicinal benefits. Today I have an appointment with Dr. Gerald Warrener so he can legally renew my blood pressure […]

Well, this is a great note

April 25th, 2012 · No Comments

My grandmother used to say that, when something untoward happened. Lilio (see post below) were going to take a road trip to the nursing home to see Katheryn Feller when the phone rang and it was Robert and Alison calling from a car sitting on Fairview Bvld with its hazard lights blinking because the engine […]

My Goodness!

Last week there was this comment from Pottermom: Oh, tell Rose I ran into her cousin this week. She wants to come for an extended visit. Rose replied that would be okay but she’d have to bring her own sleeping bag. Well, Rose’s cousin just arrived, just minutes ago. We will post pictures soon, but […]

Don’t blog when you are mad

April 21st, 2012 · 2 Comments

Good advice, but like most everything else, there is a comforting loophole: you can write a post, you just don’t push “publish”. I’ve been writing.

“13 people in her immediate family”

April 20th, 2012 · 3 Comments

I heard that sentence decades ago; it was spoken by the husband of my friend who was from a family of 11 kids. We were looking at a wedding picture of a crowd, when he uttered it. Yes, it was the bride, her parents and siblings. Sometimes, I think of those 11 siblings, conjure up […]

Pictures from Iowa

Joe, LZP’s son who is in the Air Force and is being transferred from out west to  . . . brace yourself . . . North Dakota, stopped by his hometown on his marathon trip. That would be the kind of trip Der Bingle used to do way back when – I mean way back, […]
