Thursday – A Little Personal – Decorations

“Hey, you guys. What are you doing?” “Decorating the tree. You want in?” “Goodness. All the ornaments are already on the tree.” “Well, you wanted to go outside and chase the squirrel.” “I know but no one said anything about decorating.” “That’s true Little One. I think they thought it would go better if you […]

Wednesday Story Day – AKA – Hump Day

  It is Wednesday Story Day again, and last week, we witnessed Charles the server denies he went home with Mrs. Rafferty, which was information received from Jerry the server.

Top Ten Things Not to Do Wrapping Presents – Redo

This post was published in December of 2017. Since history does not lend itself to humor this week, I thought you might enjoy a revisit or a visit for those who missed it. I always enjoy wrapping presents. I pretty much avoid the “store gift wrap” in favor of the messes I create. I think […]

Views of the Neighborhood – Holiday Shopping

Friday John Ku – AKA – TGIF

  Friday is here and a very welcome sight. “I wish I could work all weekend,” said no one ever. (Well maybe there are a few.) This was a pretty uneventful week. I continue to pour over my WIP. I did a run-through Grammarly and found 4,323 things that need attention. Most are commas, which […]

Thursday – A Little Personal – Twiggy Under the Weather

“So Twiggy. What are you doing?” “I’m resting. Mom says I have a Youteaeye?” “Yeah, the vet says to rest for sure. And it’s UTI.” “Looks like Lucy caught some too.” “No, dad, she is just lazy.” “That fire looks good.” “You poor lamb. You’ll feel better tomorrow.” “Well, I hope so. This is no […]

Jerry, the server, told Andrew and Larry that Charles left a party with Mrs. Rafferty and didn’t show up […]
