Okay, sometimes a Kindle isn’t enough

August 30th, 2012 · No Comments

Kindle/Amazon sends me emails about books there computer analysis thinks I might like. It is probably right on this suggestion, but the title and description made me think I didn’t want to spend $10 on an electronic version. This was a book I needed to hold and see sitting on my cluttered, over-sized window sill. […]

Andrew Barker – We didn’t know you

August 29th, 2012 · No Comments

We didn’t know Andrew Barker of Kendallville, who passed away at age 46 on August 26, 2012 – didn’t know him at all. Didn’t know who his father was until the obituary was published. Now we know: Reverend Dan Barker. We’ve written about him here – about an award he deserved a hundred times over.  […]

Tomorrow is neck doctor day

August 29th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Early in the morning I will pull out of my driveway so I can be at Lutheran Hospital’s professional building at 8:45 to see the surgeon about my parathyroid gland. That didn’t seem so early when I made the appointment three weeks ago. I expect he will send me for an MRI and maybe even […]

Torture on the dining room table

August 28th, 2012 · 1 Comment

In this post there is a picture of the Gingerbread Grandma that Summer made for my birthday. Oh, heck, maybe I have the picture still; let me see. Yessirree, Bob, here it is. Then we ate it, but not all of it. There is a grandma torso now on the table; I can’t complain, I […]

Well . . . a link

August 27th, 2012 · No Comments

It’s raining and my lower intestinal tract is upset . . . and I thought, “What an opportunity to sit here all comfy and read and surf the web. I don’t know what site I was on, but I saw a link to a Travel & Leisure series of photos about scariest bridges. Of course, […]

A birthday card

August 27th, 2012 · 1 Comment

I don’t know if this will work or not, but I wanted to share a card that popped up on my computer this morning. It’s from Jacquie Lawson collection and I hope you can see it HERE. Obviously, my comments on mowing have been noticed. Now let’s see if this works.

Oh my gosh, in 1967 I turned 19

August 24th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Yikes, this time moving on thing is a trite saying, a cliche, a rumor you hear when you are younger – but, this month, it’s a kick in the pants. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Remember one of the songs? Will you still love me when I’m 64? That song; those lyrics. Well, I […]

No picture

August 23rd, 2012 · 1 Comment

You will have to use your imagination because I took no picture of myself yesterday as I emerged from a day of mowing into evening. A layer of mosquito repellent A sheen of daylong perspiration A covering of dust from all the stirred up dirt from the drought conditions. Gosh, almighty, do I love soap.
