LEARNING to be ME ~ part 4

Sex, love, marriage.  Love,  marriage, sex.  Marriage, sex, love.   The words formed a circle and spun around in my head.  So much so that I found which states allowed the earliest marriages.   Was i in love with love, or in love with sex?   My...

LEARNING to be ME ~ part 3

I have to say this,  Sex fascinated me.  It had been so since I was seven years old.  I had been hiking in the mountains wih some older boys. We had been on a high rock and looking down we saw some girls sunbathing stark naked on a high rock below us....

LEARNING to be ME ~ Part 2

I don't think Jenny's problem was the same as mine, though it may have had the same consequences.  We had both been fed so much Bull crap in our lives that there was no way we could be let out in the real world without making fools of our selves.  ...

LEARNING to be ME ~ Delayed Development

I don't know where to begin.  It's all so confusing.   You see, I was never ME, not really.  I was an artificial creation of  a previous generation.  My mother, partly.  Her old-maid cousins: Ruthie and Beeb. and a widowed woman whom I will call...

CAPTAIN MARVEL

There will be very few who remember Capt. Marvel - the "Shazam guy."  I'm pretty sure PastorMike did, and that leave me and burgundystblues who will remember the comic book stories.  The art was clever but not realistic in the way Superman is now...

The STORM WASHED SKY

Very pretty out today.  Sunshine,  It looks like it would be warm.  Maybe later.  We only got about two and half inches of snow here.  Just enough to completely cover the grass.   The amazing thing is the sky is so clean.  A teal or robins-egg...

BLIZZARD, HELL!

This is no blizzard,  not yet.  Maybe it will get to be one before it is all over, but it doesn't qualify yet.  Six or eight inches do not a blizzard make.   There must be some controlling definition.  Why do news sources always make it seem...

DUMB QUOTES ~ Misinforming everyone

Usually they come from people who are famouse for quotations such as Dorothy Parker or Ogden Nash or others.  As Dorothy herself said "There is a great distance between wit and wisecracks."   Anita Loos is famous for "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes."...

IS IT JUST ME??

Here it is, the last few days of January, almost groundhog day, and I'm singing Christmas songs and getting into the mood for the Holly-days.   My mental clock is slow, I'm never ready for Christmas when it happens.  Nope!  Never!  It takes to...

COTTON CANDY CLOUDS...

...Light, airy and windswept, scudding across the sky.  They come from the southwest, meaning the Gulf is still controlling our weather, warming it a few degrees.  Perhaps even beyond Central America, even from El Nino.  I'll take it.  I love the...

PROVOKER # 6 ~ Second Marriages

Why is it when divorced couples seek a second marriage, the man usually chooses a younger woman, and the woman will probably select an older man?   Your opinion, please.

SAW TWO OF MY FAVORITE OLD MOVIES LAST NIGHT

... from Turner Classics.  First, "The Bad and the Beautiful" which has been on my top 10 list ever since it came out.  It along with "Casablanca" and "From Here to Eternity" have been on my list from their very beginning.  Bad and Beautiful came on...

DUST OFF THE LAWNMOWER

Yup,  it is warm again after a couple of days of snow.  The sun has come out, the day lillies 'back from the grave" are killed but the grass and dandylions are growing like it is May.  And everything in the garage has been moved infront of the mower....

SNOW in the sunny Southland

The temp us 20 f,  Windchill and such makes it feel like 12 f.  Its been snowing since 7 this morning.  First powder snow,  then feathery snow like tiny beginning feathers on a duck.  It wasn't sticking at first but was quite heavy. you could hardly...

The GOD Mistery

I will not argue the first assumption.  You believe or you don't believe.  That is your privelage.  There are many different interpretations of what God is, and what is possible or impossible with him.  Many, many misteries surround him.  One of the...

WHAT IS THIS STRANGE LIGHT IN THE SKY?

If is like a brilliant orb of fire.  And the sky,  it is so blue.  Hard to imagine, I'm sure.  If memory serves from my childhood,  I think it is called SUNLIGHT.  Whatever it is called, I think I like it.  I may put on shorts later and see if I can...
