Posting to move Joe Biden down

January 31st, 2014 · No Comments

When I posted the video clip of Joe (I can’t stand that man) Biden, I realized it would be on the front page for awhile. I thought I could handle it, and I’m not going to go jump off a cliff or anything, but I saw it this morning and felt like puking. God, that […]

Oh my goodness! It’s him.

A friend met on the Internet is Pottermom and we tease each other back and forth. She is very familiar with my opinion of Joe Biden: I can’t stand that man. Yes, that opinion. I think she has upped the stakes on the teasing, though, because on her blog, she posted a link to this […]

Back to school

January 30th, 2014 · 1 Comment

There is a two-hour delay, but school will be in session for East Noble today. For me, this means I will get some idea about which day of the week it is – that Saturday and Sunday have not Twilight Zoned into forever. The sky is blue, for now, but in two days we are […]

Ah, relaxing on Riley Street . . . er, or not

January 29th, 2014 · No Comments

I was almost certain trash pick-up would be delayed by at least a day during this period of snow, more than usual cold, and more snow. I wasn’t 100% absolutely sure, though.  Our trash is picked up Thursday morning – sometimes very early, so we need to have it out there Wednesday night. Yesterday, I […]

At night, quiet

January 28th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Sitting in a pool of light, with a comforter around you and your nose running, is not necessarily a bad thing. You are cozy; you are warm; the pressure in your sinuses is easing. It is especially not bad if you have washed your face in a gentle cleansing cream, pressed hot washcloths against your […]

Don Moore Sr. and Don Moore Jr. Kendallville at its best.

I had a good day because I got stuck in my driveway, I got stuck right where it meets Riley Street, which the plows had cleared to a nice, smooth surface. But right there, right before the smoothness, was a wide-based snow dyke where the plows had pushed the snow. And, despite my grandkids digging […]

Which path?

January 27th, 2014 · No Comments

I can get myself up and going and shower and GET IT OVER WITH or I can sit here and type a long post and then maybe decide to read a little, all the time having the chore of the shower hanging over my head. It’s 6:11 am; what will I do? 6:54 am: Well, […]

A few remarks and then . . . I’m a serf

January 26th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Hello and okay, I did not go back to sleep; I do not even have covers on me.  If you would like a visual, and, gee, who wouldn’t? – just think of me, AmeliaJake, coming onto the porch, rolling up a couple of afghans on one end of the sofa and then sitting at the […]

Am I tired or not?

January 26th, 2014 · No Comments

It’s just after five in the morning and I am awake and wondering if I want to lay my ugly head down upon my wretched bed – oops, sorry there, a Muppet reference just hopped into the flow of my thought. Actually,  I feel like being a little sneaky here and getting something to drink […]

Drifting

January 24th, 2014 · No Comments

We do not yet have snow coming down, BUT there is snow blizzarding across the roads from the gusting winds.  The wind is picking up any snow that is not packed down and moving it; I noticed about an hour ago that my eastbound lane on Hwy 6 was narrowing. It is a little unnerving […]
