$399 – not a toy

December 27th, 2017 · 1 Comment

I clicked on a link to decorative items and took a close look at TWO wine glasses . The description of the glasses designed by Steven Weinberg reads: Make your dining experience a memorable one with this set of two modern and sophisticated white wine glasses. Their stems are filled with clear crystals for a […]

The plunge

December 26th, 2017 · No Comments

September was warm and so was October; November flirted with snow and the next week it was pushing 65 degrees. But now, oh now, we have fallen – not eased down a slope – but fallen off the cliff of temperature doom. Technically, the temperature is above zero, but the windchill is -8 . . […]

A daybreak moment of Christmas

December 25th, 2017 · No Comments

Actually, this is a wee bit past daybreak, for with the snow the light quickly brightens. When I walked out the back door, the air above the snow was a charcoal color, but by the time I grabbed my phone and made it out the front door, everything was growing lighter, although you can see […]

Kingman, Indiana in the Wall Street Journal

December 15th, 2017 · 1 Comment

My cousin – the younger one by nine months – sent me an email about an article a member of her family found in the Wall Street Journal. It was written by a young woman who grew up in the town where my father was born and where he is buried. It is the town […]

Inappropriate remarks? Dan? Jane?

December 9th, 2017 · No Comments

Der Bingle and I were talking this morning about Bill Murray, which led to a mention of Dan Ackroyd and some hesitation and then the rather embarrassing, but in unison, question: Is he dead? No, he is not and he is four year younger than we are, which makes me pause. However, forget all that […]

And so it begins – snow

December 9th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Just before daylight, out the front door. I see no elf prints; perhaps I should go look under the windows.

The Fat Toad Farm

December 8th, 2017 · 1 Comment

I surf the internet in the morning, looking at the news first to see if anything happened that the media feels does not have a Trump twist to it, and then just peeking in nooks and crannies on various sites.This morning one link led me to BuzzFeed, which highlighted a segment on “special” gift-giving.

Am I in the category with CATS????

December 5th, 2017 · 3 Comments

Oh, dear, while checking on a blog to see if there was a new post that would lend itself to whimsical joshing – perhaps a few tongue and cheek verbal tennis ball lobs between another comment leaver and me, I was stopped in my tracks by one of the sections of the frequently changing banner. […]

I miss being Mother’s sous chef

December 3rd, 2017 · 1 Comment

I am going to be more accurate – I am a sous to the nth degree chef, actually to infinity degree, and possible negative infinity. In other words, in finding my way around the kitchen, my mother, who was an exemplary cook, indicated where the doors in and out of the room were. So, when […]
