The wayward poster

June 30th, 2015 · 1 Comment

I haven’t been posting very much – a little here and there. I think it is a phase. I think it is a bunch of stuff going on at the same time. I think it is fugue. I think maybe I’m making excuses. Well, see if I bounce back or if I go bouncing over […]

Ah, it was 57 degrees and raining in Kendallville, Indiana

June 27th, 2015 · 1 Comment

That temperature was not when I got up to take Alison to work; that temperature was around 9 O’clock and I actually turned on the space heater for a bit. June 27, global warming, go figure. Being the weekend before the 4th of July, I wondered how many people were settling into their vacation homes […]

A Little Tikes swing from A long time ago

June 26th, 2015 · No Comments

I remember when we bought this swing, Der Bingle and I; it was when we lived in West Chester, Ohio and I was in my mid-40’s. It hung from a tree in our backyard where we would swing our grandson. That was a long time ago. That yard was a huge hill in front, and […]

Caught up in the grapevine

June 24th, 2015 · No Comments

I have been trying to rescue part of the hedge from a grapevine – little did I know when I started that grapevines can be as much like a forest as a hedgerow. I believe I am going to set up a support a bit away from (what is left of) the hedge and let […]

Drug manufacturers price gouging?

June 22nd, 2015 · No Comments

I have take a certain medicine for 40 years. It was on Wal-Mart’s $4 list and so I didn’t use insurance. Now, Wal-Mart cannot offer it for that price, but rather wanted to charge $183. Why, because the drug manufacturer’s have raised the price – a lot. I am going to cite an article HERE […]

Lagrange county house = Rose’s punishment

June 21st, 2015 · No Comments

Yeah, that recitation of all the outdoor work I’ve been doing in the last post . . . and Rose’s comment about taking me to task for my pride? Well, Rose sent me up to Lagrange county to work in the yard there. It was in the 70’s and the humidity was 80%; we have […]

Little by little

June 19th, 2015 · No Comments

Between Fairborn and the nursing home, not to mention Lagrange, I have not been spending much time with the Kendallville yard. Driving in after dark made it hard to see and the garage is in the back . . . so it went from bad to really bad.  I have pruned, I have mowed, I […]

Ah, the sample read

June 18th, 2015 · No Comments

Most of the Kindle books offer you a free sample, which lets you explore totally bland books without paying the $4.99 being asked. Why such authors set a price at $4.99, I have no idea, unless it is to get dedicated friends to buy the book and leave good reviews and just maybe entice someone […]

Cloudy days and wet grass

June 18th, 2015 · No Comments

Those words is that post title sum up the past few days. However, I pulled myself together and put on my walking shoes and went out into the 86% humidity – yes, I’m proud of myself, I won’t deny it. My clothes are sticking to me, my hair is dripping sweat and tepid tea tastes […]

Fairborn walking route

June 17th, 2015 · No Comments

The part of Indiana in which I live is fairly flat, not like the Great Miami River Valley or the Ohio River Valley which include both Dayton and Cincinnati where I have lived.  Those places have hills and winding roads; you go up and you come down – not like a mountain, more like up, […]
