The Great Alone

February 25th, 2018 · No Comments

When my eyes came open this morning, I saw that the bare branches outside the window were moving vigorously. The sky was grey white and I had to stop myself from frowning at the gloom because, after all, I was awake and not aching anywhere. When I stuck my head out the door to grab […]

Egyptian gypsies?

February 22nd, 2018 · No Comments

I turned the TV on while I was sorting through some papers in boxes and up popped one of those reality shows that have become the staple of The Learning Channel – one about Gypsy weddings. Quite frankly, I thought, “Oh, rats, I don’t want to see this,” but the remote was over by the […]

However, I have watched the Alexa commercials […]

A snow day. Oh, wait, I mean SNOW DAY!!!!. Listening for the radio announcer to work his way through the alphabet for your school and the WOO-HOO’S. Were we terrible? I don’t think so, but if I were a student today, this is what a school closed would be: eLearning Day. Here’s a selection from […]

Valentine’s Day – a holiday to be done without

February 14th, 2018 · 2 Comments

It’s Valentine’s Day AGAIN? I did not like this day in the 50’s when my little hands stuffed valentines in handmade sacks on small school desks. That, by the way, was in the day when the desks bolted to the floor and joined together like portions of a railway train. The front of your desk […]

Hoarding : A different look at “Bonnie’s” house

February 12th, 2018 · No Comments

Whoa! I’m not looking anymore

February 10th, 2018 · 1 Comment

It looks so much worse than it is, but, gosh, it’s fascinating. But not fascinating enough to look again. Lana, you are so right; my angels were wiping their brows . . . and now they are giving me a good talking to.

Could have been Kendallville headline

LADY IMPALES SELF ON RETRO TV STAND LEG. When I was little my father was very diligent in trying to teach me to be careful – handwashng, avoiding rusty things, never leave sharp objects in a potentially dangerous position. On and on and on with the cautions; sometimes it seemed overwhelming. But he was right. […]
