Well, into all plans a little rain must fall

July 31st, 2012 · No Comments

That’s not necessarily a bad thing. I went to bed expecting to get up, walk, mow my little lawn (if I remember how), go to the LaGrange house and then down to Albion, while leaving something here for people to munch on. But I got up and it was lightly raining . . . and […]

A resting day

July 30th, 2012 · No Comments

I went to the store and bought myself a pair of walking shoes, ones with comfy, cushioned heels. Then I came home and decided a nap would feel so good, so I took one. Then I stretched, got a drink, started to read but felt myself dozing off . . . and went with it. […]

This afternoon I wanted to go visit Kathryn at the nursing home and I wanted to be clean, so I showered and shampooed. Then I brushed my hair and decided my roots needed to dry upright . . . so I scooped up most of my hair into a topknot and stuck a hat on […]

Uh, have I been lost?

July 29th, 2012 · No Comments

I know where I have been; I just didn’t realize how things blended together, as did days. This has been a week of trips to Fort Wayne, hours spent at the LaGrange house as the new green metal roof goes on, extra time at the nursing home because Mrs. Feller’s daughter’s been sick . . […]

We are gathered round in the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse

July 25th, 2012 · No Comments

Just a bit of evening light is coming through the windows and individual lamps make pools of cozy light here and there. A lot of us have our butts on one chair and our feet on another – that is, we each have our own two chairs. Glenn Miller is on the music player and […]

This just sucks

July 22nd, 2012 · 2 Comments

It has been a long day and my head aches. I came home, shucked my clothes,looked at my email and saw that there was an update on a CarePage. The patient is a little boy and he is all right. Someone fed his dog, Buster, rat poison and he died nine days later. He was […]

Continuous burst saves Der Bingle

July 21st, 2012 · 1 Comment

Uh, I tried for a group picture and LZP, of course, has a variety of expressions – one of which was fairly normal. Unfortunately, in that one Der Bingle was not as his best. So we tried a little tweaking: Here are the original four shots.

What comes to mind

July 21st, 2012 · 2 Comments

I have been scatterbrained of late, more so than usual, and I am having trouble organizing anything – even little post tidbits. I don’t see improvement on the horizon, so I have decided to adapt and just open a post and drop off any thoughts that are falling out of my head at that time. […]

In the nick of time

July 18th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Yesterday morning I went to Fort Wayne for my blood testing appointment and on the way home I pulled into a gas station that was advertizing $3.17 a gallon. I filled up. When I left I noticed the sign jumping to $3.54. YES! Yesterday afternoon I took others to Fort Wayne for appointments and on […]
