Preview posts – lesson learned

September 30th, 2017 · No Comments

Holy Moses!! I quickly added three newspaper clippings to my last post and did not then go and look at it. BAD MISTAKE. It sprawled across the entire page. I went into site administration and did what any 69-year-old unaccomplished post poster would do – I spent a lot of time figuring out how to […]

September 28th, 2017 · No Comments

My younger son’s middle name is his great-grandmother’s maiden name – Akers. I found three quick references to her from about 100 years ago:

Tweety Bird

September 27th, 2017 · 1 Comment

I read a blog entry about Trump tweeting and on the spur of the moment commented that I thought sooner or later a pundit would start referring to him as Tweety Bird. Now I can’t get it out of my mind. This could make for a long day.

A shark and memory

September 25th, 2017 · 1 Comment

That is a misleading post title; I should have typed my shark vacuum and my memory, but what is done is done. Oh, I know there is a delete key and it would me so easy, but today is : Return to Your Past Day and so I doing it like we did waaaay back […]

Joe Kenda is the new John Wayne for Policeman

September 24th, 2017 · No Comments

I am just a wee bit younger than Joe Kenda; let’s just say that Joe and I are separated by almost two years. Had I been born on the 28th of August rather than the 27th, he would be two complete years older. Oh, if you don’t know who Joe Kenda is, well, don’t feel […]

Wrong Turkey

September 24th, 2017 · No Comments

I just posted not ten minutes ago, but I am here again because I must confess to a totally AmeliaJake type of mistake. I glanced at a sub-headline on the Internet news that announced a Miss Turkey had lost her crown due to a tweet. And I thought – please brace yourself – that it […]

Rule # 1

September 24th, 2017 · 1 Comment

This started out as one of the major no-no’s for trial lawyers: Do not ask a question you do not already know the answer to or are an answer you are not prepared to hear. I suppose it derived, as so many prudent things do, from the old adage that curiosity killed the cat. Firemen […]

Water: a danger if taken internally?

September 22nd, 2017 · No Comments

I have upped my consumption of regular old water, although I will allow that most of what I drink is bottled water from Ice Mountain. The main reason I stick with Ice Mountain is because I like the sound of the name and the flash of pleasant mood I feel when I glance at the […]

BookBub blindsides me again

September 8th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Drat, I made an inappropriate pun in the title above, and, really, it was totally unintentional; it had to be subconscious. I caught it almost immediately and could easily have changed it, but maybe it is appropriate because it testifies to the intensity of the emotion that wells within me when a certain topic comes […]

Well, a Hoosier hello to Harvey

September 6th, 2017 · 1 Comment

I met a part of Harvey’s extended family this morning at the gas station. I winced at the price per gallon and turned my back to the pump and when that pump shut off automatically, I turned slowly and groaned. And it occurred to me: With all the notifications about voluntary help for Hurricane Harvey’s […]
