It was apparently picture day. HERE IS A LITTLE PICTURE – OKAY TWO We went to Fort Wayne and while there had lunch at Logan’s. Here is a picture of their clock – set to, of course, DST – what we used to call “fast time.” Then I got a little artsy – and here […]

Old blog – June 2007

October 25th, 2013 · No Comments

Well, I’ve noticed that just these past six years have made me more satisfied with just having a regular day. THE PERFECT WEEKEND?? In Indiana??? You jest.

I surprised myself. Mostly by this: Suzanna Dorkeaux had become one of the wisps of Southern family history who every now a then appear in shadowy form on the outskirts of a evening lawn party. My mind . . . it is an odd one. From the old blog: So what dork is doing this? […]

Another look back – Sarah Grismore

My mother died on October 17, 2009; I thought about it all day and am still thinking about the days following. When I happened on that old website of mine, I found this post about her: I am one of those people who reads – a lot; fortunately for me, when they talk of addictions […]

Say hello to Mary Mary is new to our group and like the song George M. Cohan, sweet and old-fashioned. She did go to the Ohio Redoubt to visit, however, and Der Bingle reports she has been hanging out with Alien Poo, who is introducing her to “new attitudes” aboard the Mother Ship. We shall […]
