The plunge

December 26th, 2017 · Comments Off on The plunge

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 · Comments Off on A daybreak moment of Christmas

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 […]

Is it really me, AmeliaJake?

June 16th, 2017 · 1 Comment

I think so; I think I have emerged from the shadows. I may wander back in, but while I’m here, I guess I could at least say HI. Let’s see, Der Bingle was taken to the emergency room on April 19th with lights flashing and the siren going. I was three hours+ away and did […]

Johnny Cash – what I didn’t know

January 29th, 2017 · 2 Comments

There are, I’m certain, a lot of things I don’t know about Johnny Cash. But last week, there were a lot more. That changed because I came into the living room, sat down and realized: Oh, my gosh, the remotes are here-not misplaced. So, I turned the TV on and there was the beginning of […]

Cows and Skittles Trump Trump in our news

January 20th, 2017 · Comments Off on Cows and Skittles Trump Trump in our news

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 […]

Isabella Selmes Ferguson Greenway

January 19th, 2017 · Comments Off on Isabella Selmes Ferguson Greenway

I had to look up this lady’s name because only once did I run across an account of her decades ago in a book about Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. I really should have looked more into her life; I should have realized that an short anecdotal reference in a book does not normally stay with […]

Supervolcano coming next

January 17th, 2017 · Comments Off on Supervolcano coming next

I decided I’d rest today – on a sofa, in front of a TV; I should have planned a series of DVD’s, either a binge or a bit of this and that of favorite movies. I threw myself to the fate of cable TV, however, and have watched several dark shows, thinking, “Oh, how dark […]

Hospital Duty

September 17th, 2016 · Comments Off on Hospital Duty

I am holding down the guest love seat in a hospital room; it is really something I would like to have at the house. One end pulls out to make a bed and I’m going to make a video. The vending machine on this floor is of a new design – I’m going to film […]

Thelma and Louise at the PBC

September 4th, 2016 · Comments Off on Thelma and Louise at the PBC

I remember several years ago, the movie It’s a Wonderful Life was playing all the time- first on TV because there was something about no fees for the stations and later, in stores during the Christmas season. I have found the perfect movie to play on the TV mounted up on the wall here in […]

Tossed away the CLOSED sign

August 31st, 2016 · 1 Comment

Yes. we had our own little SNAFU here at the Peanut Butter Cafe & Roadhouse and put the little hook in the eyelet on the screen door, closed the big old winter door and pasted a CLOSED sign in the window. After whatever number of days it has been (This is not a Ted Koppel […]
