Life After Life and Dream After Dream.

June 30th, 2013 · No Comments

I have been riding my scooter; I didn’t lie, but really a good deal of my time the past couple of days spending the Kindle edition of Life After Life. The book review in the New York Times, which I read after finishing the book is HERE and, no, I did not spend anywhere near […]

Riding the scooter

June 29th, 2013 · No Comments

Time for a tattoo – I’ve been a biker* girl for a couple of days. The guys at the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse don’t know what to think. *Uh, that’s a 50cc Honda Metropolitan.

Government and how much medicine you can have

June 27th, 2013 · 1 Comment

I am bummed. I learned today that someone in a nursing home who has a severely arthritic shoulder can no longer have the amount of tylenol she was receiving because insurance (Medicare) won’t pay for it. I’m not in a mood to say anything more.

Rain and light storms

UPDATE: Well, that’s a fine kettle of fish; my update didn’t publish. I don’t know where it went; it hasn’t shown up on any draft or whatever. You didn’t miss much, I was simply remarking that I had noticed blue skies and felt that might mean I should go out and be active. However, I […]

Followed

June 24th, 2013 · No Comments

I left the nursing home as big black clouds hovered right out the west-facing door. I had no idea – Kathryn’s window faces east. I drove along, thinking I would see dark clouds in my rearview mirror. Well, I did, and then I saw them on top of me. It seemed odd because on Hwy […]

Hit over the head

June 22nd, 2013 · 1 Comment

Well, I had to take desperate measures and hit myself over the head. I spent yesterday upset with myself for pointing out how someone else should be really happy at a good situation; I knew I shouldn’t remark on it and, yet, I couldn’t stop myself, couldn’t not push the send button. I was wrong. […]

Old days

June 20th, 2013 · 2 Comments

I see that a little town around here is having a 3-day festival. A lot of little towns have festivals with old-fashioned midway games and food booths and a DJ playing records at a park in the evening. One of the major attractions at this festival, according to the notice, is the return of the […]

Scooter riding day

June 19th, 2013 · No Comments

I did stomp the trash and did some other stuff and then I hopped on the Honda Metropolitan and rode around the block. All the time I was thinking, “Remember, look where you want to go . . . because you will go where you are looking.” I don’t know remember that happening on a […]

Trash-Stomping Day begins

June 19th, 2013 · No Comments

Today is Wednesday to most of the world; to me, it is the day before the trash is picked up early Thursday morning and that means we have to stomp it down so the trash lids will close. Why? Well, because a lot of our trash bags are, in a way, airbags, If I could […]
