First snake of the season

May 31st, 2014 · No Comments

Yesterday, after going a summer or so without snake sightings at LaGrange, I saw a skinny, long black one hurrying away from the side of the mower – the RIDING mower, thank heavens. I had been concentrating on something, trying to figure it out when my peripheral vision started flashing ALERT ALERT ALERT ALERT!!!!! Part […]

We are entering the downhill slide of another Norfolk Pine. I have always loved them, especially since my Chicago days. But they dry out and die, or they get sick and dry out and die. I stopped getting big ones because I felt guilty about buying one. At Christmas time, however, the grocery stores sell […]

Change in plans

May 29th, 2014 · No Comments

No more Okie Dokie to mowing at LaGrange today; I had to man this fort this morning and by the time I got gas – in my car and in my containers, it would be mid-afternoon before I actually began chugging. That’s if I don’t have to jump start the mower – not exactly a […]

AmeliaJake, who is me, or if you want to be grammatically correct – who is I, has one leg up on a coffee table, the other hanging from the sofa and is typing whatever comes into her mind. She does not want to continually have to type the lengthy “AmeliaJake” and isn’t opting for “AJ” […]

Some rain today

May 28th, 2014 · 1 Comment

Some rain today means no mowing, but it also means mowing tomorrow. I’ve been all over the mowing stories, including the gas cans that fell over and leaked in the trunk. I am ready for sheep and goats in the yard in LaGrange. I had a tiring day yesterday, which led me to toss a […]

Well, it’s Memorial Day . . . sort of

May 26th, 2014 · No Comments

Yesterday was the Indianapolis 500. For almost forever, until modern times when holidays moved to Mondays to make three day weekends, the race was run on Memorial Day, unless Memorial Day fell on a Sunday. Now, they run the race on Sunday. Things change. I caught myself looking at the calendar on my laptop and […]

Can’t spell geranium

May 23rd, 2014 · 1 Comment

Oh, for Heaven’s sake, I mis-typed geranium and then didn’t notice it in the previous post – even though it was in big print in the title slot. Well, I guess my peanut butter level was a little low. I want to have a party; no, I want to go to a party where everyone […]

Kendallville to Kingman – Geranium Road Trip

May 22nd, 2014 · No Comments

Well, I started off in a rainstorm, drove in so-so skies for a while, then had rain come down in a torrent and finally got steamy hot all on the way to put flowers on my dad’s grave. The pot rode on the floor behind my seat down there and now sits at the Kingman […]
