YO

May 31st, 2013 · 1 Comment

Well, I’m here for no good reason, other than to say “YO,” John Wayne style. And the only reason I’m thinking about John Wayne is because I just finished a walk and it was humid and I could hear this voice saying, “Well, Sister, there’s no reason to be thinkn’ about slowing down. – Just […]

It didn’t rain

May 29th, 2013 · No Comments

There was a chance of rain today – rain and maybe thunderstorms. It looked like rain often. I figured I’d take a stab at mowing until the rain ended the endeavor. Well, while I was mowing in Kendallville, it did not rain; although I drove through rain to reach the LaGrange County House, it did […]

Rainy Memorial Day

May 27th, 2013 · No Comments

My father used to put out the flags on graves in his LaGrange County area on Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day. He was 81 when he died in early 2000. I remember reading in that time period about a parade that was cancelled in a little east coast town because they didn’t have anyone strong […]

Best Buddies

I received an image of this portrait of LZP and his daughter, Jody, on my phone. It took me a bit to manage to get it moved over to iphoto. (For awhile the phone server wasn’t emailing pictures.) For the sake of accuracy, I’ll leave it for LZP to identify the artist in the comments.

Flowers for AmeliaJake

May 26th, 2013 · No Comments

I went on a walk just a little while ago, and coming from the opposite direction on Diamond Street were three teenagers – two girls and a boy. The boy had reached up and plucked a couple of blooms from a tree along the way and as I passed by, he handed them to me. […]

So, it’s Sunday

May 26th, 2013 · 1 Comment

I should probably put my orange pants on today because I am feeling somewhat foggy. Wednesday I went to Kingman and came back the next morning . . . and then, when it was 54 degrees, rainy and windy, I went up to Michigan and put out four cemetery pots in two cemeteries. Fortunately, one […]

Feeling at home

May 25th, 2013 · No Comments

I am not talking about where I am now; I am thinking of where I was a couple of days ago – at Susie and Glenda’s houses. They are my first cousins and they live in the area where my dad grew up. When I got there and walked into Susie’s house, she was getting […]

Continuation: Prison Life with Jerry

May 24th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Jerry was now locked up in his toilet-less temporary cell. Jerry could hear the police talking and in their rumble jumble conversation he was hearing, he heard his name. Jerry wondered about why his name would ever come up. After a few seconds of deliberated thinking, he figured it out. They were part of BOAT. […]

Busy days

May 23rd, 2013 · No Comments

Some days I feel like I could open my head and let words splat out. That would not be pretty, so I’m keeping the latch on today. Kingman Fraternal, Sturgis, and White Pigeon cemeteries have been visited and “potted”. I am now planted on my sofa with the heater on my feet – yes, it […]
