MY NEW HABIT drives everyone Nuts!

A silly habit, I had no idea they could even hear it.  I got into it during my long winter in the hospital.  It was quiet but not totally, you could hear people moaning with pain, even screams from somewhere down the hall.  I did not watch TV even...

WHen the student is ready, A TEACHER WILL COME

I'm a great believer in this, I have never seen it fail to happen.  A few times it has been an actual teacher who decided to become my mentor, but more often it is a book that just pops off the shelf at me, or one I browse through at a used book...

ENJOYING FATHER'S DAY PRESENT

Chocolated coated truffles.  I'd seen them in stores but they didn't appeal to me.  Chocolate coated mushrooms.  That is what I assumed them to be.   I mean they grew under ground and use truffle hogs to sniff thrm out and then root thm out with...

THINGS I BIT ON, before I could stop myself

I was, I think, 13 when this  happened.  You know how it is, if masturbation wasn't at the top of my list of favorite things to do, it was very high on that list.   I was in the city bus waiting room waitng for the 7 pm bus.  it had been raining...

DESOLATE LANDS?

To eastern eyes, used to seeing blues and verdant greens, the SouthWest of America seems  Desolate and forbidding. From the browns of west Texas, To the clear, lunar landscape of New Mexico  To the sun-parched Arizona lands  And...

CLOUDY DAYS are Welcome in Summer

The temp will not go up much on the dark days.  It may even be cool and hold in the 60s F, but usually in the upper 70s or low 80s.  A welcome relief from the heat.  Occsional showers will bring it down further, though if you have to wear a plastic or...

TASTES CHANGE

I don't mean my taste preferences, I am referring to the taste of the foods themselves.  I woke this morning and none of the usual breakfast foods appealed to me.  No toast and jelly, no bacon and eggs.  Nope, I want... I want...   I want a BLT....

UPDATE: DOCTORS REPORT

The doctor was smiling,  No growth, no edema or fluid build up, No nothing.  The doc listened to my lungs and my heart beat, felt pulses on both arms together, strong beat and steady. no bad news since last visit and this was the best news I could...

Wondering???

Why do men always seek to flatter women's good points, and why do women always seek to downgrade men's?   Maybe you know the answer, it just mystifies me.   Case in point:  In the old movie "Four Weddings and a Funeral," Lydia complains that...

Live to be a hundred IF NO CATASTROPHIC DISEASE

I recently published a blog where my veinous speciailist said there was no reason in my case why I would not live to be a 100 or more  but he also said this wouldn't include catastrophic illness. My family phisician has found a potentially harmful...

ATTEN: Thoughts and Denimyte

I want to read more of the series on the Civil War but apperently Denimyte has been hacked and taken over by heroku.  Chrome identifies them as a possible harmful site, so i'm afraid I wont be able to read what was actually said. Whether they are...

MAGNOLIAS AND MIMOSAS IN FULL BLOOM

The June air is sweet with the scent of mimosa, and all around the Magnolias are at their peak of color.  The white blooms, echo the white clouds overhead.   It is great to be alive.  June is truly "busting out all over," and, yes, the...

SMALL TOWNS - THEY HATE THIN SLICED BACON

I moved the the town I now live in almost 25 year ago.  And just so you know, I love thin sliced bacon becuse you can make it crispy or tender as you want it to be.  But in this town no one likes thin sliced, they don't even like medium sliced bacon....
