Redux: Kendallville to Houston

October 30th, 2015 · 1 Comment

Two of last colorful views – for Pottermom and Quentin, of course: Red leaves: These leaves are actually purple. Well, maybe you can see the purple better here, but it’s not much better. And then there are these pictures: Part of my pile at the edge of the street and driveway Part of the pile […]

Windy in Kendallville

October 29th, 2015 · No Comments

A couple of days ago I posted two pictures of the warm and glowing color on one of my trees. The day I did so, the leaves that were on the ground were dry and light and would have been easy to rake. I did not do so and that night it rained; it rained […]

Preserved Memories or, “Hey, no one’s dead.”

October 28th, 2015 · No Comments

Pottermom referenced this site about keeping your loved ones alive digitally. You’ll just have to read it yourself to see why I am offended and immediately thought of asking the author: Are you dastardly stupid and incredibly out of your mind?” It is horrible; how dare anyone talk of keeping people digitally alive so, what, […]

Car repairs today

October 27th, 2015 · No Comments

I’m going to be at Shepherd’s in Kendallville at 10 in the morning – because my LaCrosse has this little “sensor problem” that can cause the engine to lose power. It happened once on the way back from Fort Wayne and I nursed the car to the dealership, thinking all the time that maybe my […]

Leaving the leaves

October 26th, 2015 · 1 Comment

A carpet of gold and orange and red covers my yard and there are more leaves on the trees. They will come down as well and then I will have to stop imagining this Walt Disney magic of color on the ground and acknowledge that God’s leaves, like Disney’s celluloid will decay. So, were I […]

No, it’s not the perspective

October 24th, 2015 · No Comments

I opened the paper to do the Sudoku today and right next to it was a comic strip, which I glanced at and then sighed. Then I thought that perhaps I was taking it too seriously, to much to heart. After all, it’s a comic, so I changed the angle of my view: Well, nope, […]

Oh, Cubs, you will forever break hearts

October 22nd, 2015 · 1 Comment

I knew it would happen. Knew it, knew it, knew it. One of the little rooms in my mind where I keep sad things has the word CUBS on the door. I had to open it fast and throw in this latest bit of knowledge. I want to blame Joe Biden for it.

Joe Biden says he will not run

October 22nd, 2015 · No Comments

I heard the news yesterday. First, when I was in a store, I saw on a big screen TV, a special announcement crawler at the bottom: “Biden to speak in Rose Garden in nine minutes . . ” I then stopped in at a bank where they have lots of security cameras, but no big […]

White trash – a politically incorrect term

October 22nd, 2015 · No Comments

See, I added a little protection there in the post title since I didn’t want to spend time explaining to any commenter that when you are in your late 60’s, White Trash was just a part of the vocabulary when you were growing up. I realized tonight that when I went out and climbed up […]
