And I am back

September 30th, 2014 · No Comments

I went to Turkey Run State Park and had a long lunch followed by an equally long talk with my cousins out on the lawn under the trees. We avoided the walnut ones – no one wanted a real knock on the head. It was good – a lot of things were talked about face […]

Do not leave without leaving dog treats

September 28th, 2014 · No Comments

I need to post the title above on my refrigerator. I am getting up early tomorrow morning and heading down to Turkey Run where I will be meeting with my cousins on the Grismore side of my family. It’s going to be a quick trip and I may even try to manage a backpack trek […]

Kendallville Articles: #3 Hospice

September 28th, 2014 · No Comments

Once you have had experience with a good hospice program, you never forget it . . . ever. And you always appreciate the job it does. Yet, it is a fairly new concept in American medical care, and when Karoline Carney at the Noble branch at Parkview Home Health and Hospice hears about an article […]

Articles about Kendallville: #2

September 27th, 2014 · No Comments

You can pretty much tell a Carnegie library just by taking a gander at it- even if it is not being used as one anymore. We have seen them everywhere in towns across the United States. I suppose you could say they were one of the first “chain/franchise” buildings to pop up. The symmetry, the […]

Articles about Kendallville and Noble County: #1

September 26th, 2014 · No Comments

Looking at Noble County today, what we see is not what the Indians saw, it is not what the explorers saw. It is, for the most part, not even what the first settlers saw. Where once were marshes, woods and bits of prairie, there is agricultural land – think corn and soybeans and barley, along […]

Articles about Kendallville: Introduction

September 26th, 2014 · No Comments

Scroll down for articles relating to this introduction. I’ve probably been writing all my life; I think I started with finding ways to choose the right words to reflect what I was experiencing before I even knew how to write. I believe I instinctively wanted to be able to remember things with vibrance and an […]

Two books and two frowns

September 26th, 2014 · No Comments

I read a couple of crime books this week and for the most part both of the books progressed with intricate little plots and I wondered just what the answers would be. One book dismissed a subplot with an Oh, well, that was weird but it happened. The other pulled the two perpetrators out of […]

Forks

September 24th, 2014 · 4 Comments

For decades, I had the same forks, supplemented by forks from my childhood. When I went to LaGrange when my folks were living, I had my favorite utensils and I knew just where to find them in the drawer. Some of them had a history that was passed along to me – like the tiny […]

Hey, I’m getting it over with; I’m fasting tonight and by the time I make it to the lab tomorrow to have my blood draw it will be oh, 13+ hours.  Fasting goes slowly sometimes, but at least it has started. Please, don’t let me forget and get up in the morning and in a […]

Feet up, laptop on lap, raspberry iced tea

September 23rd, 2014 · 1 Comment

Ah, I have to fast soon for blood tests, but I think maybe I’ll do it Wednesday or Thursday night. I probably should sort of practice tonight.  Usually I don’t mind fasting, but the weather is cooler and fall food smells are in the air. Fortunately, I can drink as much water as I want, […]
