I’ve been lulling

February 29th, 2016 · No Comments

I usually have something to gripe about all the time, so why have I been so silent for almost three days? Heck if I know – people got lucky I guess. I did get my dent looked at and guess what? It popped out on its own; the repair guy thinks it was because of […]

Ah, this is actually painful

February 26th, 2016 · No Comments

It’s a given that AmeliaJake is sarcastic, and can be so in an extremely cutting way. It comes so easily.  I am going to show you a picture: I will type: Hi, I’m a vacuum, but AmeliaJake’s the sucker. Now, of course, there is not much to that. However, if I chose to do so, […]

Winter Storm in Kendallville – AGAIN

February 25th, 2016 · No Comments

I am not  referring to  yesterday.  Yesterday we had snow and I wrote about it. I also had a fender bender in a parking lot and my son had a flat tire. I thought today I would be writing about those two things. No, not yet – not after this morning’s trip to take my […]

Snow . . . Well, here it is

February 24th, 2016 · 1 Comment

As I sat in the laundromat last night because I did not want to spend the entire night catching up on the wash, my phone popped up with a weather warning. It does that a lot; it’s usually not for me, but perhaps they have refined it now – zeroed in, so to say. A […]

Rupert Brooke

February 24th, 2016 · No Comments

Not a name that I think of daily, but of late the first line of one of his poems has been marching through my head in a continuous loop. IF I should die, think only this of me;   That there’s some corner of a foreign field That is for ever England. I sometimes think of […]

MAYTAG: DAY SEVEN

February 23rd, 2016 · 1 Comment

The repairman came; the washer is working although I have not given it a real test run yet. I took scads of laundry to the laundromat, because I couldn’t trust my luck. The fellow had to replace the guts of the machine. He asked how long I’d had it. I told him since October. He […]

MAYTAG: DAYS Five AND Six

February 22nd, 2016 · No Comments

Maytag preparation did not get a Day Five post all of its own because my typing fingers were attached to a really tired body that had moved a too big dryer out of a too small laundry  room. Do you know how the delivery guys got the washer into that room? They lifted it up […]

“Psychology is not rocket science”

February 21st, 2016 · No Comments

Psychology is not rocket science Someone made that statement a couple of weeks ago and at the time, I thought, Boy, are you right. However, I agreed for a different reason. The speaker was implying that it was not all that difficult, but I think she is way off base. In rocket science, people know […]

MAYTAG: DAY FOUR

February 20th, 2016 · No Comments

I have spent the day reading so that I can keep my mind off my hopes about my Maytag washer repair and wind up jinxing myself. What I read was just an airhead book. That is the one thing I don’t fancy about my Kindle; I cannot read a bit and then think, okay, airhead, […]

Jessie Wisler Shimp’s ring

February 20th, 2016 · 1 Comment

I don’t wear Grandma’s ring all the time; I don’t want to lose it or subject it to harsh chemicals – as if I would ever clean. But there are times when I want to feel my grandma with me, because it is comforting and because when I am wearing her ring, I feel like […]
