I FORGOT MY OWN RULE!

The rule is, don't go to those medical sites because you'll just convince yourself that you have the plague.   First of all, I noticed that the site where I got my pneumonia shot itched.  I got the shot on August 18th, just over a week ago, so...

SOUR ENDING TO THE DAY

We went for a ride Thurday to try to find an old house or abandoned public building that will do for an orphanage.  We're trying to plan a collage for the cover of the next book.  We went to Coldwater, Michigan because there are tons of old houses...

I HATE IT WHEN THIS HAPPENS!

So, there I am typing away, on page 220-something when I decide to look for some more detailed info on the Civil War.  I should have just stuck to my vague ideas.  Now that I know how the timeline really worked, I can see that mine is all wrong.  So...

WORKING HARD - NOT!

Hubby is off at the grocery store and I'm not.  The thing is, my feet already hurt and I've got cooking to do.  I fixed pork chops with cornbread stuffing yesterday, and the pork chops were those thick cut kind.  They didn't get done all the way...

AND A FINE TIME WAS HAD BY ALL ...

I think Hubby had a good 72nd birthday.  He got lots of cards reminding him how old he is.  Once you pass 50, that's all you ever get.   The cable dude was here at 8:00am and got us all fixed up again.  Here's hoping whatever critter is chewing...

Damn woodchuck!

We've had on-again, off-again (mostly off) internet for a week.  Hubby finally noticed the reason.  The cable running into the downstairs bedroom has been nearly eaten through by a beastie, most likely our neighborhood woodchuck or one of the...

How old did you say you are?

Okay, folks, I'm 71 years old.  It's 4:56am on August 3, 2015.  It's my 53rd wedding anniversary.  I'm wearing a sexy red nightie and I'm about to go upstairs and surprise my almost-72-year-old husband.  How cool is that?   Don't worry.  The...

MARTIN ALWAYS DID HAVE POOR TIMING ...a story

The house was old and had lots of strange little quirks - squeaky floors, slightly crooked doors and bumps in the night.  But Martin said he loved the old place and always had.  It was his grandfather's house and when he inherited it, he insisted that...

End of Day

The time is 9:51pm and it's finally fully dark outside.  The fireflies are out.  It's 73 degrees and on its way down to 64.   I had an easy day, as days go.  I supervised Hubby in the kitchen while he cleaned strawberries and baked a shortcake. ...
