There are so many papers among my parents things; some have been passed from my right hand to left hand and back like soldiers digging holes and refilling them. Today, while going through stuff again, I noticed quite a few newspaper clippings in one envelope, which contained old, old scraps not needed for these present […]

February 26th, 2013 · 2 Comments

A nice person-Brandi – was better than a shot of Brandy today. Sprint’s tower upgrade is going to continue until – wait for it- some time in March. That is the official line Sprint is having its employees relay to customers. Oh, woe is me, BUT Brandi helped me adjust my phone settings so that […]

Sprint tower upgrade troubles

February 25th, 2013 · No Comments

Last week my phone started dropping calls and/or people could not hear me. I went into the Sprint Store and they told me the towers were being upgraded. I said, “Okay.” Well, a better response might be, “Oh Crap.” Yes, my phone, or phonie, as I am wont to call it because I am some […]

Well, okay.

The book I just finished was good reading until the end; in other words, in my opinion, the author wrote well, but wanted to have A BIG PICTURE plot as well.   In the last short chapters, everything was neatly wrapped up – or buried, as it were – think  four old ladies who pushed an […]

I’d better write this right now, before I get caught up in some Saturday morning to-do. While checking my email, I saw that on one of my rare forays into Facebook, I had sent a friend request to Kathy Young, who is a very, very nice lady here in Kendallville.  She had sent me an […]

We’re here

February 22nd, 2013 · No Comments

Shane and I are here, holding down the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse and keeping a light on in the window. Shane has made a couple of trips to check and see if Quentin has reconstituted himself from the scents he left behind on pillows and blankets; he comes back then and lies down with […]

I knew this day would come of course – the day when Quentin returned to Houston. It is tomorrow morning, early; Der Bingle and Q will leave about six. I note this tonight because I think I will be quiet tomorrow.

In the moment

Yes, it’s a cliche and I know it. I am also figuratively smelling the roses. Oh, and I danced around the fire pit again this afternoon – Socmonkeyjawea, don’tcha know. Three days . . . two more.

How much wood would an AmeliaJake chuck?

February 15th, 2013 · No Comments

We have two kinds of wood here. Our woodman each year brings a couple of loads that are seasoned and we have a stash of wood that he has brought from previous years that is more dried out.  I let it dry out because obviously the old wood will get burning faster.  Of course, I […]
