Remembrance Day Reflections

As the secular Memorial Day weekend draws to a close, I’d say it was a productive start to summer and a relaxing– in a bone tired sort of way– long weekend. Last afternoon’s storms continued into morning. No farm work in the rain so no reason to wake with the chickens. We enjoyed morning coffee talking […]

Oh My Goodness! We Should Play A Game!

We could resurrect the Dinner Party with fictional characters. We could learn more words. “Boooorrrrringgggg.” “ruff.” We could dig into those sentences in that canister. That’s some history. “You could, if you were so inclined, remember us, Marica. I mean, seriously, I spent almost the entire day in my box. “I remember you! You’re my […]

As is my habit when on a public university campus, […]

It's an Honor to Be Nominated!

PREFACE: I had a lot of work to do today, and I knew there was a storm brewing. And there was. It took me all day and into the wee hours (it’s 10pm and the lights have just come back on) to get this done. Plus… Miss M & Tony are real troopers about conversing […]

“What would you like to talk about?”

I was one-upped by Miss M’s Friend the other day. I pronounced the Dinner Party Game finished. He countered with a question, “How can we be finished when our guests haven’t had any conversations?” Right he was! How can you have people such as we all invited around a table and then not allow them […]
