In light of the recent riots in Egypt between the Conservative Muslims and Christians that rocked the streets I am even more wary when I see a house with a cross in the yard.
My mother is a pill. She was all dressed and waiting when I got there today and ready to go. But she had to wait fifteen minutes because the lady next door was having a suprise party and we were going there before the tea. … Read full post »
Well, here I am getting ready for the Mother/Daughter Tea over at the clubhouse where my Mom lives. It is going to be an English affair and I hear some people will be wearing hats and gloves. I have my sun hat… Read full post »
"I got an IDEA!" squealed the cute little girl in the park. She knew she had the attention of the grown ups now and she repeated the phrase over and over. Pretty soon everyone was saying it.
Her epiphany wasn't very profound but it was the cute way she… Read full post »
It really is and it makes me sad. I'm doing the comb over thing and the illusion isn't working anymore. I tried so many things but in the end it is just happening and there will probably come a day when I have to… Read full post »
I had the idea that a macrame hanging would provide some privacy on our balcony. So I found some fancy cord at the hardware store and bought four skeins for about twenty dollars. I paired that with some green gard… Read full post »
There were protesters in the streets of Seattle because of the World Trade Organization's meeting in a hotel downtown in 1999. A man had come into the store where I worked trying to explain what the issues were but they complicated and went right over my head. The WTO and…
This is a new way to tell stories. My cyberfriend Brian Alexander has published a book called Digital Storytelling. … Read full post »
"Inspire Park has a new build, Let's go see!" My friend, Coral, teleported me inside the giant sun and sure enough we were in a vibrant sea blue enviornment with techno music and spotlights.
What will they think of next? Most everyone was on the… Read full post »
A beautiful bud opened today and I saw our first Iris flower in the garden. They were planted before we moved in so I had no idea what color they were and it was a disappointment at first. Brown. Who would plant a brown Iris? But as the day progressed… Read full post »
Why couldn't the house next door have been sold to another quiet retired couple? Instead the two old people watched in horror as a single mother with two teenage sons and a live in girlfriend moved in. One teen wore dreadlocks, the girl had pink dyed hair and the… Read full post »
It occurs to me my life would have been easier if I had followed the rules. When I think of the odd ideas I have had and the way I can justify anything I wonder if I haven't been fooling myself all these years.
What… Read full post »
In 1998 I was working in an old mansion on Capital Hill in Seattle, managing it as a Bed and Breakfast. The place was creepy and the owner was insane. I took over the wedding planning, the morning brunches, the laundry and room clean up and I went to… Read full post »
Here is the little traveler studying the emergency flight instructions. I have no doubt she would survive anything and she and her mother would have a wonderful time saving the day. She is taking her fourth airplane trip in her tiny life today. They are h… Read full post »
I had to have something. A Dairy Queen Peanut Buster Parfait would have been on the top of my list but the freeway exit dictated a stop at Mary's Donut Hole. I zipped in and ordered two plain twists and one chocolate twist and then I saw the giganto twists. … Read full post »
I was all alone in here for an hour and a half while my mom had a colonoscopy. All is well. She was tired. I was wishing this room could tell some stories. I did take a walk around the block as it is a beautiful spring day but… Read full post »
In Seattle I learned of the fight of the Natives of that area. They lost their land, 54,000 acres, by the Duwamish River that is now a polluted industrial waterway and entrance to the Port of Seattle with all the container ships. The Duwamish natives have built a cultural cen… Read full post »
Walk with me along this path,

We cannot walk together forever.

"My" show is Sunday Morning on CBS. I usually have the house and the television to myself because everyone is sleeping at 7am on a Sunday morning. But I get out of bed with a smile on Sundays for "my" show. I like to make it for the beginning of… Read full post »
We went to this wonderful old restaurant for dinner tonight. When we sat down my friend said the people in the booth next to us were talking so loudly we couldn't hear the cute little waitress with her dyed scarlet hair… Read full post »
Dear Mrs Person,
I'm sorry I fell asleep in your class. It hurt when you hit me on the arm with that ruler. To tell you the truth the whole class is afraid of you. I promise not to fall asleep anymore but you see my mom and… Read full post »
"What would you like to do for Easter, Mom?"
"Why don't you take a cruise that weekend."
This is the subtle way my mother has at 92 for not wanting anything to do with holiday dinners or family time. The truth is we both annoy each other,… Read full post »
