I'M JUST ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE ...

Here's the thing:  I'm always cold.  Always.  Hubby is always too warm.  Always.  And we have to live in the same house, for one thing, because we're married, and for another thing, because we can't afford two houses.  So here we are.   All...

AUNT LELAH THE SPINSTER

My aunt Lelah was a pushy person.  She bossed everyone around every chance she got, including me.  She was a large person, tall and bulky and not in the least feminine.  She was smart, though, and had a good job working for the county.  One of her...

SORT OF LIKE AN OBIT --

I gave up on reaching the guy about the writer's booth by email and called him.  One long-distance call - oh well!  He said he hoped it wasn't too late to get me into the booth at the Block Party.  He asked me to write a short biography of myself (~...

Got through my colonoscopy.  Just two little polyps, gone now - have to wait to see if they're anything bad, but I doubt it.   There was an article in the paper here about "local authors" and I wasn't in it!  This is the same newspaper that...

Okay, here goes!

My "good" leg has started to hurt just the way the bad one did before the surgery.  I'm trying to decide what to do about it.  I sure as hell don't want two knee replacements at the same time.  I've heard that is not the way to go!  And Hubby isn't...

LIFESTYLE CHANGE ON THE WAY

Hubby went to the grocery store early this morning, mostly to buy cans for the postman's can drive for the food bank.  He came to the kitchen door after delivering all the sacks of food and said, "I have a present for you - one you probably don't...

AN UNBELIEVABLE STORY THAT HAPPENS TO BE TRUE.

The day after I got home, I bravely went to the potty by myself.  Hubby said not to try to get up until he got there.  I don't remember what he was doing, but I didn't want to wait for him, and of course I was sure I could stand up by myself.  And I...
