Bummer - it's Monday

If I were still working, I'd be unhappy.  I always hated Mondays, and Sunday nights were depressing, too.  That isn't just because of work.  I felt that way as a child, too, as soon as I started school.  What I used to hate the most was when there was...

Anyone for a Romance Novel?

Well, I just happened to have written the first three chapters of one.  Here's Chapter One: PART I, HORATIO BLAIR/HEATH LIFE IN TYLERVILLE, NEW YORK     CHAPTER I, THE LAST YEAR AT TYLERVILLE SCHOOL         Carla Pettigrew...

Uploading pictures

Okay, I've tried and tried and tried to upload pictures.  The bar comes up and says "uploading your images" and the bar finishes loading, but at the very last second, the tab says "null" and nothing appears.  I then get an error message saying there's...

Went to the grocery store, bad back and all!

We went to WalMart around 08:00AM.  As soon as we got home, we thought of 2 or 3 more things we needed.  Isn't that always the way it goes?  We had a list and got everything on it. My parents never had a shopping list.  They always just walked up...

There's no turning back now!

I pulled my back, or twisted it or something, and never felt a thing.  It went like this:  I got up at 05:30AM (very late for me) and started to walk toward the bathroom.  I got a little twinge on the first step, and it got worse on each consecutive...

Thursday Night

I'm having an awful time trying to upload some pictures.  We have an old dial-up system, so it's pretty slow.  The Thoughts system seems to be uploading successfully, but at the last minute there's an error message and no picture.  Am I doing...

Okay - it's 3:43 AM and I'm up for the day!

My cat seems to think that, because I often get up really early some days, I should get up really early every day.  She starts down by my feet and walks up my legs and side.  If that doesn't wake me up, she sticks her cold nose in my ear.  It's pretty...

Going to the Doctor

I visited the pain doctor today.  I really like him - he seems to get me.  He says he doesn't have any more medications that will work for me, so now it's one of those electronic implants or nothing.  I'm leaning heavily toward nothing.  I don't think...

Staying up late again

So here I am at 11:15 PM.  To you youngun's, that probably doesn't seem late.  Trouble is, if I ever can get to sleep, I'll be up again by 04:00 AM.  Once you get in a pattern like this, it's really hard to break out. I have neuropathy.  My legs...

Old People aren't Always Scary ...

I'm 69 now.  Good lord, how did that happen?  Since my health is so bad, I feel every year of it, too.  Not so long ago, I didn't look or act any where near my actual age.  Your life can take a down-turn at any moment.  I hope all you youngun's are...

The Apple Tree

The apple tree stood proudly in the best place on the farm.  She was not in the barnyard, but nearer to the farmhouse.  She was the first tree planted and therefore oldest.  There were many other fruit trees on the farm, but none so beautiful and none...
