Gonna Be a Grandfather Again,

It's a boy and it seems it will be named after me, partly.  That is both the grandfathers are named Tom and each grandfather has been told the same thing, "Naming it after you."   I don't mind,  It's really an honor, I was named after my grandfather...

We're BACK!!!

After 11 hours without power, phone, cable, Intrnet, TV we are back among the living creaturs again,  It was a very dark night.   we were under a storm and tornado watch at about 8 pm last night,  Thunder and lightening were parading up and down...

SLEPT LATE, WOKE LATE, BIG BREAKFAST COMING

Some of you know, I've had troubles where nothing tastes good anymore, but this morning my taste buds are calling for Hot Cakes, maple syrup and bacon.  Yummy!     Get out of the way, cooks.  The kitchen is mine, this morning,

To SEE what Condition My Condition is in

Still waiting on my Doctor's report on the blood lab last week. Apparently Easterweekend has made it late.   I got my drivers license, but they gave me a temporary one and will mail the real one to me from some central (US ??) point.  One more...

Is Winter Finished With the Curtain Call?

We can hope.  We are coming up on Good Friday and Easter.  I love warm Easters. with blossoms all around and everyone in their finery (If they still do that stuff).   I don't know about 5th Avcnue but in smaller towns all over America it is still a...

A DAY OF DOCTORS AND TESTS

They are testing me to see why my energy is so low, blood labs, lung capacity, echo thingamabobs of my veins.  I was worn out when it was over.  My physician thinks it is just the natural aftermath of my recent surgery but I have never taken so long...

WINTER DOES A CURTAIN CALL

And why not?   It just did a long, arduous performance.  Now it wants to revel in the afterglow.  Take a few more bows,   I can't speak of the rest of the country but the south had long been awaiting spring, it finally came a couple of weeks ago, and...

'MY GOD, WHY HAST THOUGH FORSAKEN ME?'

---   Jesus on the cross.  This phrase used to bother me.  Had God forsaken him? Did he now doubt?     I think you have to be old and face emmenent death to understand the reason Jesus said this.  He was now ready to go but death did not...

GOOD MORNING, ALL

It's a nice day here,  My driveway looks empty,  no more truck sitting in front of the garage.  My french fry running truck, that is: made to run on vegetable oil.  It did -- or it used to run on the stuff.  One of my early experiments to see what...

The LEAVES ARE OUT~ SPRING

Just out for a walk around, a million leaves from trees greeted me,  Spring is here.   The big oaks especially, showing off their Easter finery!  

The Iron pills are working -- WOW!

I can't believe the energy that showed up after I started my iron deficiency pills.  I must have been starved for it.  It is a whole new ME.  Two hours after I took the first one, I could not sleep and got up to work in the middle of the night,  Then...

DOES ANYBODY KNOW THIS SONG??

It came out in the 1950s and hung around for a while.  It is driving me nuts because I can't remember the rest of the song or who sang it:   "My father was an engineer, my mother drives a hack, my sister takes in washing and the baby balls the...
