Jansen Dentistry

May 31st, 2016 · No Comments

The people at the dentist office will see me first today – officially, in my capacity as a public persona. They are lucky. It is after five am now and I am a mess, having mowed the lawn and sweat under my hat and then plopped down on my sofa of pain. My hair has […]

No rain for Kendallville

May 27th, 2016 · 1 Comment

Yesterday, I went out and sweated and hurried and got everything ready for storms and NOT ONE DROP OF RAIN. I was in a storm mood; I wanted heavy rain. After a bit, I got disgusted and decided my hair was humpy and went and got it cut; it is more in a summer mode […]

They predicted rain and storms and thunder and lightning

May 26th, 2016 · 1 Comment

It is muggy outside, very muggy and I am covered with mulch dust and dirt from pulled weeds roots and have a triple layer of dried sweat on my body. However, rain was predicted for today. So, last night, after I had picked up someone at Kroger’s at 10 pm, I decided to leave my […]

Memorial Day, 2016 – Because I could not be there

May 25th, 2016 · No Comments

This Memorial Day, I could not make it down to the small cemetery in Fountain County, so I asked my cousins to please put flowers on my father’s grave. This morning I received this picture and the following message: Sue and I did this yesterday. We talked to Uncle Bob about memories and told him […]

The basics

May 23rd, 2016 · No Comments

What was it we used to say in grade school? Oh, yes, Present or Here. I guess if they were calling role this morning, I’d have to put up my hand and respond with one of the words above, but, gee, it is almost with a sigh. Still, I can find something good and productive […]

The morning after the backyard fire pit experience

May 20th, 2016 · No Comments

I have made it sound as if something dreadful happened; it didn’t. At one point I placed a plastic chair fairly close to the fire and sat there and then began to think, “Hmm, I’m hot and is the side of this chair starting to melt?” I started to write about the weather. Blast! I’m […]

And what happened to that snowball?

May 17th, 2016 · No Comments

I am not referring to the cold, white stuff – even though we have had yo-yo weather which sported a high of 43 degrees just a few days ago. It is chilly and rainy today as well. Tomorrow it could be in the 80’s. Who knows? There is a less abstract question that I would […]

The new Kindle from Amazon

May 15th, 2016 · No Comments

They are calling it the Kindle Oasis Oh, please. Really? The ebook reader with adjustable print and ability to hold lots of books has been great. Believe me, sometimes the expression “good enough” is correct.

Me and my Mobius Strip

May 15th, 2016 · No Comments

It was rainy and cold on the 14th and I got my hair cut and then decided it was too chilly to plant ferns and hostas; I also decided I would wait until Colin leaves for his group home to start a major reorganization of things in the house. I was thinking piles for right […]

Friday the 13th – Thanks for telling me

May 13th, 2016 · No Comments

UPDATE ON MAY 15TH. See, I missed the 14th; was it because of the 13th? I don’t know, but look down at what I wrote on the 13th. Yep, I typed except instead of accept. Of course, it could be argued that miss a lot of typos because I loathe proofreading. However, let us not […]
