The day is what you make it

March 31st, 2016 · No Comments

I suppose the above popular attitude advice has exceptions: a frozen turkey falling out of the top shelf of the freezer and doing serious damage to your small pet – things like that. However, I am tempted to say that yesterday was in its own right  a terrible day, just  really terrible. I don’t think […]

Snorts are better than one nostril

March 29th, 2016 · 1 Comment

My nose keeps clogging up with what I have started calling “snot clots” because I am forgetting that choice of words says a lot about you. My father would be shaking his head; one does not have to say “snot.” (And I still feel the period should be outside the quotation mark, but the rules […]

Hall Lake, Beck Lake, Noble County, Indiana

March 28th, 2016 · No Comments

I know- and odd sort of post title. However, I imagine I have come within a couple of miles of these lakes often in the years since I was born: going  to Gene Stratton-Porter, going to Fort Wayne, going between here and my mother’s Lagrange House, going to North Ridge Nursing Home.  Actually, whenever I […]

Looking for excuses

March 26th, 2016 · 1 Comment

I have all these chores that I have to do and I used to think about them and then decide to post something here; that got to be obvious. I tried pushing both topics out of my mind, but that left me with a garage that was getting dirtier and no place to moan about […]

Having watched Richard Burton

March 23rd, 2016 · No Comments

I decided to look at something on YouTube and wound up watching most of a documentary about Richard Burton. I am now feeling not only lackluster, but just plain lacking. However,  I have no beer to cry in and that works out well since it is no use crying over spilt milk. Even I am […]

Dandelion cookies . . . The Crisco Kid strikes again

March 22nd, 2016 · No Comments

Well, I mentioned dandelions in my respond to the attack on my cran-mango juice and that was probably a mistake because it was obviously a trigger. The Crisco Kid sent a link. Here let me make it easier for you: HERE

Diet Cran-Mango by Ocean Spray

March 16th, 2016 · 1 Comment

This is an odd thing to write about – a variant of cranberry juice, but I am prompted by the need to acknowledge that I was wrong in my assumption I would not like it. Yes, AmeliaJake was wrong. I don’t know what I thought it would taste like – perhaps mango ruined by cranberry. […]

Rental car returned safely; trip to Fairborn made; return executed with gas stop at St. Mary’s. Yes, I am that boring today.

Hyundai Sonata rental car

March 11th, 2016 · No Comments

I’ve been driving a Hyundai Sonata rental car while mine has been in the shop. It is new, which is a nice treat. It is also very clean inside, which is definitely not AmeliaJake’s style – not that I am proud of that. I will always be a cluttered car lady, but I really should […]
