TWO VETERANS

My Uncle Hubert was in the army during WWII.  He was 6'1" tall and weighed 120 lb. and had a stomach ulcer that could hold a Buick.  I don't know how he got in the army, but there he was.  He was in at the end and spent a lot of time doing "cleanup"...

NOTHING TO SAY AND NO REASON TO SAY IT.

Here I are again.  (Oh no, run for it!)  Too late.  Gotcha!   My adorable sister wrote good review for my last two books on Amazon, bless her little heart.  And she's re-reading the third book of the Carla trilogy because she loves it so much. ...

The Beautiful Pink Dress, a story

Caroline didn't mean to fall in love - with the pink dress, that is - but she had to walk past Shirley's Frock Shop every day on her way to and from school.  She always looked in the display window, of course, but this particular day, there it was. ...

REFILLING PRESCRIPTIONS

For those who are unfamiliar with the Wonderful World of Pharmaceuticals, just wait until you get old.  Yes, indeed, there's nothing like it.  But I've actually lived long enough to see improvements in the system, at least in my little home town.  ...

Waiting for Hubby

Hubby just finished the dishes.  He's on his way to put out the trash, then he will come in here to work on a chapter of my book.  All I have to do it keep him from putting a semi-colon in every other sentence!   I've been trying to think what...

I Read the Whole Thing!!

It seems our dear Pastor Mike has quite the little imagination - or else he's had an even more exciting life than he has led us to believe.  I finished reading his book tonight and promptly posted a 5-star review on Amazon.com.  It was an enjoyable...

Another Book Nearing Completion

This is a link to my latest preview on Createspace.  I'm hoping to have this book out in three to six months.   https://www.createspace.com/Preview/1172483

SOMEONE SPECIAL FOR EVERYONE, a story

The two girls, Rosalind and Jenny, had shared an apartment in Las Vegas for the past year and a half.  Rosalind was a showgirl, in fact, the most beautiful girl in the show.  Jenny worked at the same casino for the same show where Rosalind was a star,...

CONTINUATION OF THE PHONE COMPANY POST

Turns out it wasn't my father-in-law's fault that the phone was disconnencted.  The phone company sent him a bill for the $50 that Hubby had gotten the phone company to take off the bill!!  He got the bill for the $50 on a Friday, June 12 and they...

WELL, CRAP!

I don't know wether I mentioned it or not, but my father-in-law (age 93, living alone) got tangled up with *69.  He was unaware that it cost 50 cents or something everytime he used it, and he used it enough in one month to have his phone bill top...

A LONG DAY FOR AN OLD LADY!

Today, I decided to go to the grocery store with Hubby for the first time in several weeks. I did ask him to let me out by the door, which irritated him a little, but I thought it would help me keep moving longer in the store and that was the idea,...

SCRIBBLES & BITS #140, WORD SALAD

  All right, boys, this pastooza has got to stop.  I won't put up with it anymore.  Putting hemorrhoid cream in my toupee was bad enough, but the three of you are like a celestial syzygy - I just get rid of one of you and there's another one coming...

WHICH IS WORSE??

I got dressed up this morning to give myself a reason to go outside and walk around the block.  Okay, that's not true - I'll never make it around the block.  I intended to walk from our driveway to the stop sign and back again without stopping to...

TWO REALLY GREAT HUGS (AND SOME GOOD ONES, TOO).

When you haven't seen someone for over thirty years, you tend to do a thorough job of hugging them.  I've missed my favorite cousin so very much that we got in a really great "hello" hug!  We talked for just a little while, admiring his cute little...

All Packed! (I think)

The problem is, you don't know what you've forgotten to pack until you get where you're going and need it!  As far as I know, I've packed everything except my hairbrush.  For some reason, I only have one.  I don't buy a new one until the old one wears...
