Memories can hurt or be happy

March 6, 2016 Rock bottom sucks. Even if there are no rocks. Last Sunday I hit rock bottom. I cried more in one day than I have in years. It started with a young girl in a television commercial dancing. more »»

Glasses, shoes and disturbed packing

February 28, 2016 Stranger things may have happened. I just don’t know where or when. My glasses were dirty. My glasses are always dirty, but I decided to clean them before a new HGTV “Fixer Upper” episode came on. more »»

Lists can help fill all needs

February 21, 2016 Strange thing. Some nights, even though I’m tired, I go to bed, sleep for an hour then open my eyes, wide awake. I’ll try to rearrange myself to keep on sleeping, but it just doesn’t work. more »»

Watching, doing are not always equal

February 14, 2016 Dad was a great carpenter, and I loved watching him work, so it only stands to reason I’d enjoy watching HGTV. My obsession for watching HGTV, however, is difficult for even me to understan. more »»

Electronic ineptitude not good

February 7, 2016 If you saw smoke over the west edge of Dodge on Monday, it was me. My sales tax form was ready to submit, after hours of problems, but when I tried to pay, all sorts of new problems came u. more »»

Loss of Internet hurts

January 31, 2016 For five days my Internet connection disappeared. Off and on, off and on. I restarted the modem so many times I’ll have a permanent imprint on my finger. And still I had nothing. more »»

Great night brings on memories

January 24, 2016 OK, I’ll admit it. I like to sleep unencumbered. Always have. Likely, always will, even though it’s not about to happen. A person can’t sleep in the altogether when she sleeps alone. more »»

Bested by meatloaf

January 17, 2016 Mortification. That’s the feeling that runs around your heart when you have to throw out most of the meatloaf you just made because when you ate some of it, you had to wash it down with a nausea pill. more »»

Revision helps birthday stories

January 10, 2016 New Year’s Eve means more than babysitting these days. When I was young, I always babysat because the money was really good when parents came home happy. more »»

From hawk to lunch with friends, trip sparkled

January 3, 2016 Resolutions be hanged. What I need this year is a way to get somewhere with a whole camera. When Dana and I went to the buffalo roundup in South Dakota, the disk stayed behind in Denver. more »»

Angel speak puts miracles in motion

December 27, 2015 Sunday, Dec. 27, 2015. That’s today. I can remember when even the thought of that date was so far-fetched I didn’t even consider it worth a thought. more »»

Joy brings happy smiles, crinkly eyes

December 20, 2015 Oh, Joy. Joy means more to me than Christmas happiness. Just seeing the word brings another kind of happiness, because my son-in-law’s mother was Joy. more »»

Good things keep coming and coming

December 13, 2015 No one ever has too many good things happen to them. Just ask me. My house needed to be cleaned. As in do I water the top of the buffet to start the garden growing clean. more »»

Solutions don’t come easy

December 6, 2015 Keeping your neck warm will keep your entire body warm. Who knew? My house is a toasty 66 degrees. I like it that way. more »»

‘These are a few of my favorite things’

November 29, 2015 We all know I can climb a soapbox faster than the speed of light, but I feel remiss in not equalizing that anger with the good stuff. Someone should invent a sweetbox for that. more »»

Offensive phone calls give way to laughter

November 22, 2015 OK, here’s how it’s going to be. Here’s how it must be until we get a new president or I could lose my mind. I still have a land lin. more »»

Craving for tuna sandwich creates problem

November 15, 2015 Talk about a kick in the … well, where you really don’t want to be kicked. For weeks I’ve been craving a tuna sandwich. I’ve got the tuna. I’ve got the sweet relish and Miracle Whip I mix with it. more »»

Halloween dance brings high highs, low lows

November 8, 2015 Life has its ups and downs. Everybody knows that. But to have high ups and low downs because of the same activity seems as if I’ve gone off my rocker. And I do have a rocker. My recliner rocks, too. more »»

Barking dogs vie with words for worst

November 1, 2015 Pull out the soapbox, honey, Sandy’s got a brand new gripe. Well, two, if the soapbox will stand the strain. Let it be known right here, right now, that town dogs are not outside dogs. more »»
