Views of the Neighborhood – A Gloomy Day

Well, today is certainly gloomy. Here’s a shot of the fog in front of the house. Today’s trip is to see if we can find any trace of spring after our 144 hours of freezing temperatures. It looks like we will need to amp up the food, so we have hired The French Laundry in […]

Stream of Consciousness Saturday – Prompt – “Sty”

  It is Stream of Consciousness Saturday time again, and I looked up in time to see a balloon floating down into the yard. Not being cautious, I ran over since I could see an envelope attached to a string on the balloon. Sure enough, the return address was Linda Hill’s. I ripped open the […]

Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF

    It is Friday, and what a difference in the neighborhood.  Now that the power is back and the temperatures have gone from below freezing into the high 70s, I have to say I’m a happy camper. The investigations into the cause of so many homes without power are underway. Six board members of […]

“Whoa, Lucy. This ground is warm.” “Yes, it is. The temp is 81 degrees F today. That’s 27.2 C for our metric friends.” “Why are you laying there staring at the fence.” “No reason. I just wanted the sun on my back.” “I’m not buying it. There must be something over there.” “There isn’t anything, […]

Wednesday Story Day – AKA – Hump Day

  It is Wednesday Storytime again, and last week, we were there when the tech felt he could get a court order and intercept calls that were being made from Stennis, the lawyer, to phones which had numbers that had been previously assigned to three dead undertakers.

Top Ten Things Not to Do on National Margarita Day (Which is Today)

  It is National Margarita Day today, and I would be remiss in allowing that kind of day to pass without providing some helpful advice. The top ten list won’t help prevent a time continuum disruption, but it might keep you out of jail. Top Ten Things Not to Do on National Margarita Day © […]

Views of the Neighborhood – After the Storm

It is in the 50s, and the snow is almost gone. Today’s tour of the neighborhood will be a mixture of some sad things and some to make you smile. We will take the bus even though it is a short ride. Of course, we need to take food, but since most food stores have […]
