Entries from November 2015

Well, this was a fine thing

November 29th, 2015 · No Comments

I went into Walmart here in Kendallville and just after I cleared the entry hall, I encountered a display of Christmas holiday costume jewelry. So I bought a reindeer whose legs moved and I got it home and put it in my pocket and when I reached in to get it, a leg had already […]

Fairborn to Kendallville: November 27

November 28th, 2015 · No Comments

I think the most posting I did yesterday, the above mentioned November 27, was to text “Here” to Der Bingle and “Lots” when he inquired about rain on the trip. I think I was in a bit of a daze because and, oh crap, I’m going to pun and I didn’t intend it, the days […]

The turkey in the trunk

November 26th, 2015 · No Comments

Yes, we cooked a turkey, but not in a trunk; we cooked it in a bag we got at the last moment. And we cooked a turkey in a last minute bag because when I got to Fairborn, I opened my trunk and realized I still had a 13 pound turkey in it. And it […]

Round two

November 24th, 2015 · 1 Comment

This morning, starting at five, I began dropping people off; the last one was at 7:30. In about 15 minutes I will leave to start picking them up. I am cleaner on the pick-up trip, but that’s about the only difference. I have been packing the car for a trip to the Ohio Redoubt, though. […]

Elmer’s Glue trees and shrubs

November 23rd, 2015 · No Comments

Saturday morning the roads were dry, but there was talk of snow having hit Iowa and moving across Illinois and, gee, about 11am, big flakes started to come down. They stuck to everything; then the wind picked up and the snow got finer, but it stayed wet and heavy and the temperature was at 32/33 […]

Political incorrectness in Kendallville – take two

November 19th, 2015 · No Comments

I took a spectacular tumble this morning, launching ice, sandwich and myself into the air while walking on the porch. The ice and sandwich impacted and ricocheted; I just impacted, with the brunt on my knee. This is the paragraph with which I am starting “Take Two.” The “Take One” post started with the following; […]

The Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse network is airing a special series for this time of year. Please welcome Dave* Darinko and UDO Masterpiece Theater: Looks interesting, doesn’t it? *UPDATE: Dave has just revealed that his real first name is Alistair. He is Alistair David Darinko; it seems fitting. No?, well, let it simmer in […]

Picking the holiday playlist for the Foo Bar

November 17th, 2015 · 1 Comment

Everyone knows that Foo likes to keep things upbeat at her bar and so, with holiday season coming on, she has been screening Christmas songs – trying them out on the regulars. It hasn’t been working out too well. She included two versions of “I’ll be Home for Christmas”: Bing Crosby and The Irish Tenors, […]

Housework

November 16th, 2015 · No Comments

I have been on a cleaning frenzy, which abated today. How can I run the dryer so much and still be left with wet blankets? Don’t worry if that seems an odd combination of sentences: it makes perfect sense to me.
