Not us

July 29th, 2014 · No Comments

There is an article on foxnews.com that has been brought to out attention and we want to point out that not only does it not implicate us, but that there is no evidence that the animals involved were not horses painted to look like cows, tanks painted to look like cows, people in cow suits. […]

Below 50 degrees

July 29th, 2014 · 2 Comments

Yes. It is the last of July and yes, the temperature at 7 am was 49 degrees. I am surprised, but not complaining. What I would complain about, were I a student at Eastern DeKalb, is the knowledge that the first day of school is Friday, August 1st. East Noble starts on the 7th. I […]

As it goes . . .

July 27th, 2014 · No Comments

I opened my computer this morning and noticed that a lot of recent posts have appeared in Bold print. I do not know how that happened; I tried to update one or two as an experiment and the results were a little odd given what the dashboard was showing. I decided it was not/is not […]

Shark week and Sharknado 2 coming

July 26th, 2014 · No Comments

SyFy has given Der Bingle a birthday person: Sharknado 2, but it is on Wednesday and he only has Apple TV in Fairborn. So, I guess we will have to manage to record it for him. We had a hot dog buffet with all sorts of toppings and corn on the cob and cake. And […]

A slow start to the day

July 24th, 2014 · No Comments

Just a few months ago I would have romped in 60 degree weather; this morning at 6:30, it felt uncomfortably chilly and damp. I put a space heater on my feet. How did this snow shoveling person at negative degrees become so thermometer wimpy? Just one of those anomalies I suppose. Today I am going […]

Oh . . .

July 22nd, 2014 · 2 Comments

There are times when I am referring to some stranger that I’ve seen and I’ll say “old woman” and then I think, Oh, she’s probably younger than I am.

Two rooms at the top of the stairs

July 21st, 2014 · 1 Comment

My father grew up in a small house in a small town in a rural area through which first French trappers traipsed and then settlers came, carving out farms in the fertile valley of the Wabash River. In places such as that, the roads are in a grid pattern only if they were added later, […]

Sunday afternoon

July 20th, 2014 · No Comments

I have an old bench in my backseat, resting on a Pendleton wool blanket – one Mother probably got at GoodWill for a fraction of its retail price. It is not an antique, just old – pioneer, settler type old. Relicky old. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it or where I […]

Not much to say tonight

July 18th, 2014 · No Comments

Last week on Thursday I met two of my first cousins who were visiting the Shipshewana area and we spent the day together. This morning I read an email from one of them that was written last evening. The other cousin has become seriously ill. I was shocked, stunned . . . but there it […]

Attack on the garage

July 16th, 2014 · 3 Comments

Cameron and I devoted two hours to the garage today – for the sake of establishing on-going project work. We got one half of the garage cleared out and and swept and designated the front corner for the “dumpster pile”. Everything in the house that needs to be thrown out is now going to that […]
