Chow mein and What About Bob?

April 29th, 2014 · No Comments

While Quentin was here, we watched What About Bob? because it is one of our favorite movies when it comes to comedy. In that movie, Dr. Marvin writes a prescription for Bob: “Take a vacation from your problems.” And, of course, we know where that led for Dr. Marvin and Boob, er, Bob. Today, the […]

Not much to say

Quentin has gone; he left on an airplane yesterday afternoon. AmeliaJake drove him and he gave me a final fairground run and a last pat on the head at the water bowl as he went out the door.

Shane

Last night Shane was thrilled – Quentin walked in the house with Der Bingle. There was an immediate trip to the fairgrounds and this morning, someone’s furry face kept poking someone else’s trying to sleep face. I don’t know if Shane thinks Quentin climbed out of the phone or not, but he’s just enjoying himself […]

Recalibrating

April 24th, 2014 · 5 Comments

Today has been an almost meltdown day. Would an almost China Syndrome be a Chia Syndrome? I think you’re getting the drift of my instability. What kind of a brain comes up with that? I went through so many self-analysis sessions (They run about 5 to 10 minutes) and so many guilt trips (About two […]

Just one more thing

April 24th, 2014 · No Comments

So, you’ve always been high-strung, getting fired-up about all sorts of things, feisty and opinionated . . . and then having heard all your life about mellowing out and just not caring that much about some things, you just sigh at events and go on . . . and then you stumble on an internet […]

Thank God I didn’t have a wreck

April 23rd, 2014 · No Comments

Last night I decided I’d better take off my dress and actually keep it from having something spilled on it – or experience one of my “Oh, I’ll just take a quick look at this paint and just looking won’t get any paint on me” moments. So I put on sleep clothes early; then I […]

A mission of mercy

A CERTAIN NAME that had a prominent place in the title of my last post is causing discomfort to those who see it, so I am going to move it down the page as requested by showing THAT NAME in picture form. From this LINK, we have: This LINK gives us: Then there is this […]

I tremblingly type “Joe Biden”

April 21st, 2014 · 1 Comment

As I scanned the headlines on the internet, I saw one that stopped me in my tracks. Actually, I stopped breathing, but I started again or else I would be dead now, to quote Lionel on BBC’s As Time Goes By. But – oh how can I be so calm sitting here? – going on […]

Part of Easter by myself . . . with Shane

April 21st, 2014 · 1 Comment

Yesterday was warm and sunny and Easter; I didn’t see any Easter bonnets because I went up to the LaGrange House. I was wearing a SD ball cap, which I think I forgot up there and I saw people of the sidewalks with them also – one was a Cubs hat – there may be […]
