I’m smarter in the morning

September 30th, 2015 · 1 Comment

I get up after getting quite a bit of sleep and I believe I’m smarter for a while. For instance, why should I be all upset about snarfle-faced, overly- whitened teeth JOE BIDEN even being considered as a presidential candidate? Centuries make up history – millennia. And more than that, even. I mean, whoa, that […]

Reading Kindle book reviews

September 29th, 2015 · No Comments

Whoa, someone out-AmeliaJaked AmeliaJake*. I don’t usually write book reviews because reading is such an individual activity, and because I wrote enough of them in school. Occasionally, I will feel obligated to comment that a book is really bad, unless you want to read for the purpose of finding a way to transfer an emotional […]

Where has AmeliaJake been?

September 28th, 2015 · No Comments

You don’t want to know, but part of it involves taking a kitchen range apart and putting it back together and part of it involves standing on a woodpile with an extension pole to reach a spot that needed to be painted. Part of it also involves a shifting in the house Internet network coverage […]

Warmer with a possible cold

September 24th, 2015 · 1 Comment

It has been very pleasant this week, with highs in the mid-70’s, but today it warmed up to 78 and it may be warmer tomorrow. This would not be bad except I think I am getting what would be my first cold in a long time. Couple that with a possible UTI again and I […]

An incredible amount of fence

September 22nd, 2015 · No Comments

FENCE. That has been my occupation – on and off – for a couple of weeks now, maybe three. It is not really an incredible amount of fence – BUT IT SEEMS LIKE IT. Crevices, corners, more crevices, cracks. I will never again paint a fence a light color; it only makes the above list […]

A postcard from Italy

September 20th, 2015 · No Comments

I received a postcard this summer from an Internet friend who was in Europe, and I was glad to get it. Yesterday, in the basement of the Lagrange House, I came across another postcard from Italy, one I received 63 years ago. I don’t remember getting it, but I was glad to find it – […]

Awake

September 19th, 2015 · No Comments

There are occasions when you are sleeping along just fine and someone wakes you for some reason  – maybe worthwhile, maybe not – and then you are AWAKE. Obviously AWAKE and then that word begins to stretch itself out and grow taller and pretty soon you are  AWAKE with a Times Square New Year’s Eve […]

Keeping things in perspective

September 18th, 2015 · 1 Comment

I read a book today and a book yesterday and one I ranked because the Kindle asked me to, and one didn’t bother asking, and I think I know why. Why I kept reading it is the real question. The first book was okay, but I was really in a mood to read and I […]

I found the purse

September 16th, 2015 · No Comments

Having gone through a state of catatonia, I failed to mention the fate of the lost purse, which after three hours became the “had been lost” purse. It was in the basement, hanging on a chair with something thrown over it. It seems that I was cleaning the freezer when I got the call to […]
