Cows and Skittles Trump Trump in our news

January 20th, 2017 · No Comments

Yes, we watched the Inauguration of Donald Trump and listened to all the opinions about this and that and his speech, which I will admit, took me somewhat aback. I remembered that I always liked and respected Bob Schieffer a great deal. I rolled my eyes at some of the commentators. I thought I should […]

Maybe is British TV series withdrawal . . .

July 17th, 2015 · No Comments

Maybe it is not laziness that is keeping me from going out walking in the humidity; perhaps I am languishing in withdrawal from the British TV I watch when I go to Der Bingle’s West Facing Cave, Ohio Redoubt apartment. I got in the habit of going on Friday and having Cousin Vinny’s pizza and […]

Back in time for vacuum crisis

July 8th, 2015 · No Comments

I am the “go to” lady when it comes to the vacuum, and I got the 911 call this morning. It was clogged; that sucked – well, no it didn’t, but it was an excuse for a bad pun. I have discovered the marvelous extra purpose for the leaf blower. Quite frankly, I am thinking […]

Dumpster filling

May 29th, 2015 · 1 Comment

For the next to weeks, we will be filling a large dumpster with trash, unnecessary clutter in out house. It is intimidating and challenging; I don’t want to waste one cubic foot with an uneven loading job. We started today. If I turn up missing, I might have a suggestion where someone might look – […]

Grass in Kendallville

May 24th, 2015 · No Comments

I’ve mowed the grass twice now and it needs it again. Actually, it needs a master gardener, but I’ve put a sign up by my hedge that says DELIBERATE WILDERNESS in that color.  I stuck a shepherd’s hook in close to it and hung a basket of yellow flowers as sort of a peace offering […]

Well, where is Lassie when you need her?

September 18th, 2014 · No Comments

I’ve stayed away from this blog for a couple of days because we had some treachery happen and I really don’t want to write about it on this public forum. (The Hell I don’t; I want to let my let my razor tongue extend its essence into my fingers. Might be hard on the keyboard, […]

I feel awful

June 2nd, 2014 · 1 Comment

Yes, I know I am sort of ignoring the power of positive thinking here – big time. No qualifying adjectives, just straight to the complaint. And it’s a declarative sentence, not a drawn-out whine. I’m not sick. I’m just psychologically and physically pooped and just awake from a short little morning nap. I am minutes […]

Chow mein and What About Bob?

April 29th, 2014 · No Comments

While Quentin was here, we watched What About Bob? because it is one of our favorite movies when it comes to comedy. In that movie, Dr. Marvin writes a prescription for Bob: “Take a vacation from your problems.” And, of course, we know where that led for Dr. Marvin and Boob, er, Bob. Today, the […]

Steady

February 20th, 2014 · No Comments

It was 34 degrees this morning when I looked and 36 degrees now . . . and it was supposed to be 53. How can that be when I am simmering?

A target of opportunity – I should have learned

October 28th, 2013 · 1 Comment

September of 2006 LOOKS LIKE RAIN We took some clothes the kids had outgrown to the Salvation Army truck at the Rural King parking lot area today and the two men working at the truck helped us unload our TWO loads. To load the clothes, we opened a window upstairs and threw out garbage bags […]
