Changing tastebud problem

August 31st, 2013 · No Comments

When I was little, I would not eat a tomato. YUCK! Then one day I discovered I loved them and one year I planted some and ate so many my both developed sores from the acidity nature of the little red guys. This year has been a slow year for tomato maturation in Indiana . […]

Cold and Diarrhea

August 29th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Because I have an active cold that is keeping me from visiting people and because  sudden onset of diarrhea episodes are keeping me at home totally, I sat down and decided to try getting the pickle card video posted. Maybe you didn’t need to know my reason . . . But anyway: Well, I had […]

Patrick Alexander’s father

August 28th, 2013 · No Comments

Actually, this post could be titled What I Found in Daddy’s Wallet or Robert Allen’s Picture or Forever Relationships. I suspect, though, that the most accurate title would be, Oh, the timing of  it . . . Patrick Alexander passed away this month at the age of 38 after a long and valiant fight against […]

Here I am

Shane and I have been resting – he with his snout snuggled between his paws and me with my mind closed for maintenance.

Okay, here’s a picture of the little friend who arrived in the LZP box; she’s named Wild and Woolie, but we think maybe, just maybe, she is Wily Wooly.

The conversation

August 22nd, 2013 · 1 Comment

Last evening, after supper and our Solitaire losses, after Kathryn’s shower and her being tucked into bed, after Clara had been settled for the night in her special chair with her blankets just the way she likes them, I got up from where I was sitting and reading between them and quietly eased my way […]

Moooving in

August 21st, 2013 · No Comments

We had some friends-to-be knocking on our backdoor, seeking sanctuary with our pasture. The little red-striped legged folks here open the door and welcome them in, because along with peanut butter, they really like ice cream. I must be honest, it is just not their craving for the iced treat that motivates them; I’m certain […]

How the global warming issue was reported today

August 20th, 2013 · 1 Comment

What you can do with numbers and statistics . . . sigh, sigh and sigh. I haven’t written about global warming and I’m not doing so now.

A reminder

August 19th, 2013 · No Comments

I’ve been offline for over a day – GASP – and puttering around at the LaGrange County house. I didn’t bring this rug from there – I’ve had it for a long, long time. My grandmother made it for me when I was a little girl. That was a long time ago. Today I put […]

More from the LZP bag

August 19th, 2013 · No Comments

The gummy worms were accompanied by a Gummy Octopus bag: As you can see, the bag announced a new look to the little guys – the fellows so gifted to be shoplifters if only there wasn’t the water issue. These two are on top of my Kindle; having a lot of arms makes it easy […]
