On the mower for over five hours

July 31st, 2015 · No Comments

This is better than being behind the mower for five hours, pushing and manhandling it under bushes and such.  It got a little bouncy on the rider – maybe because I was giving it a little too much gas.  I do not have a farmer’s tan now; I have a rider mower’s little old lady […]

What, no storms?

July 29th, 2015 · 1 Comment

With storms in the forecast, I went upstairs and started taking old wallpaper off some walls. Sometimes this is satisfying; other times, it just might cause one to exclaim to one’s one self: Holy Moses! What is this weird looking orange plaster? I probably scraped and peeled for about three hours and then I came […]

Thunderstorms likely to begin Wednesday at 1:00 pm

July 29th, 2015 · No Comments

That’s what it says on weather.com. Right now the humidity is very high and it is predicted to be so after the storms, so I guess it will be a sticky day. I don’t feel like humidity today; I don’t really crave that “tough guy, I can take it” you get when the sweat is […]

Selling a Kendallville house

July 27th, 2015 · 1 Comment

I’ve been giving this some thought. I’ve watched HGTV and lots of shows about decorating – not because I like to decorate, but because I like to see the different ideas people have and how much personal taste influences how welcoming and comforting a space can be to a family – or with the wrong […]

Der Bingle’s birthday

July 27th, 2015 · No Comments

Yesterday, July 26th, Der Bingle turned 67, with not as much enthusiasm as he had when he turned 16 and could drive; but still in good spirits since as he says, it’s so much better than the alternative. I did not write about it or send a blog Happy Birthday because I was afraid I […]

Kendallville’s walking drunk-like lady

July 27th, 2015 · No Comments

I have been walking my path around Kendallville for three years now and it dawned on me that once I had adapted to walking, I was simply using the same muscles over and over again. Now that’s good for my heart muscle, but my legs have lots of muscles and some of them were not […]

Kendallville Pruning

July 25th, 2015 · No Comments

I thought about titling this post: Where did the italics come from? because when I looked at the site, almost all the post had switched to that font – and I believe some things in the sidebar. I don’t know. Maybe it will come to me; maybe not. I did get an email I ignored […]

Change of pace from my usual drivel – So this is new drivel

July 25th, 2015 · No Comments

I don’t have anyone to talk to or with, although I have to admit that I am one to do most of the talking and usually it doesn’t involve listening, so I should have just put a period after “I don’t have anyone to talk to” and let it go at that. I don’t talk […]

Life goes on

July 24th, 2015 · No Comments

I ran several errands today, the last one taking me to Albion, which is southwest of here, Kendallville. I usually go SE to Fort Wayne, or a longer SE vector and end up in Dayton, Ohio – or NW to this little village in Lagrange County. Up until May 12, I did often go to […]

History can change its definition

July 23rd, 2015 · No Comments

I just finished a book that was an easy read, a mystery that depended on one not knowing much about the industry involved. It was set in two time periods: the late 70’s and the late 90″s. I find it difficult to read about eras in which I personally felt up-to-date and realize that they […]
