TO BEN, WHEREVER YOU ARE

Well, I knew something was about to happen, but not this.  I get a feeling that you are sad of heart. I have been there, where I had to let a lot of friends go at one time.  It was sadder for me than it was for them.  I think you are like that too.  i...

MY SCRIBBLES AND BITS # 2

  UNFAIR, BY A LONG CHALK, SCRIBBLES   Warping my will, o'er turning my brain, Staining my wood and withall; Forcing me to go against my grain. You're not fair to me, Scribbles, atall.   Know ye not somme charity? 'Tis not...

MY STROKE

Not recent. This was almost 8 years ago. It came without warning or fanfare. There was no pain, no tingling, nothing to warn me. I was alone in the house. My daughter was gone on a week long trip. I was thinking of something – a train of thought. And...

UPDATE ON HEALTH -- STILL LUCKY

    – NO BURSITIS I misdiagnosed myself. I did go through the misery of three no-sleep nights. Just barely napping while on my back. I could not lay on my side with my arm tucked under my head. This is almost a must for me. I have slept on my...

STICKY

Had hot cakes and bacon for breakfast.  I made it through to the last two bites before the fork got a little of it on the handle and got me all sticky. If I am ever caught and being questioned by the enemy wanting all the military information I...

SOCIALISM, PRO & CON

I am for socialism and totally opposed to it. I'll try to explain.   Socialism as a concept is needed. Help for those who need it. But it is not the job of political machinery to establish it. It should be under the churches and philanthropic...

United Way Allows you To CHOOSE... or does it?

Some philanthropic organizations such as Unite Way gives you the opportunity to select what your are donating to.  So they say.  I'm not convinced. Choose if you will. but the percentage of donations have already been decided by the board of...

defining POST-HASTE

It could mean 'beyond post haste," (very fast),  or it could mean 'after post haste.' (slowing down) Then, again, it might mean 'with the haste of the postal service, but that would be a non-sequitur.

THINKING About 'THOUGHTS'

Thoughts started with the premise of One Love.  Now I notice it is being de-emphasized.  More about games and greetings to each other.  Hardly anything about writing or discovering the meaning of one love.  Has there been a hostile take over? 

Uh Ohh. OH MY!

Oh crap.  I'm human! i have often bragged about reaching the age of 78 without pain.  No migrains, no arthritis, no lower back or foot pain.  I now have to admit to experincing some pain now. Bursitis in my left shoulder.  When I an up and...

HI, Thoughtsters

Just a note:  This is going to be one of those busy weekends.  I'll try to drop in for a minute or two to look around, but that will be about all I can manage... See you on the other side.

'KILL THE BASTARDS'

My poor Aurora, I knew you well, once. Such a quiet, peaceful town. Sort of like Englewood. And Denver, the city between the two, was a wonderful town. And now berserk killers have let their guns speak for these towns. That was not God's voice...

RICH OR BROKE, BUT NEVER POOR

(Lady Emma's challenge: This is my manifesto.)   I don't believe in poverty. Being poor is not a condition of wealth, it is a state of mind. The state one has when they just give up. I never give up. The world is mine. If you try to take it away...

BE STILL AND KNOW...

Be still... it is the German sense of the word, it literally means Be quiet, silence. God, if there is a god, has a quiet voice. If you want to know what he is saying to you, you have to become very silent for a little while. We live in a very...

PEAS AND CARROTS, NOT

We were all seated at a sidewalk cafe. Around us, the ambiance of Paris. Renaults and Peugeots wheeled along a broad Avenue. My eye could spy on a far corner a shop that said “Tobac.” My two beautiful companions and I were in deep conversation. ...

SCRIBBLES AND BITS # 1

  I am born. I lived next door to the school house where my mother was a teacher. Another woman took care of my needs except at nursing time. My mother would rush home for that.   She carried with her all the childhood diseases she had been...

WRONG END OF THE SPY GLASS

Wrong end of the spy glass Ever since Adam and Eve put clothes on, there has been an effort to peep at the other, hoping to catch them in the 'all-together.' The art of peeping goes back before recorded history. This is especially true of...

THOUGHTS??

Thoughts???   Is this Thoughts? Have I gotten through to Thoughts? The same thoughts I used to know? The Thoughts that used to be so friendly? The real Thoughts? The onelove Thoughts? Has it ever occurred to you that you might...

PUNISHING GOD

In yesterdays blog "You !!" I mentioned punishing God, but I didn't explain my references. This is not 'preacher talk.'  Most of us believe in some sort of god or gods or directing spirits that oversee us.  Maybe not, but you will get the idea of...

I'm WORRIED. CAN'T BELIEVE MY EYES

I am glad disturbed to see 59 friends on line at 5:50 am eastern daylight time Sunday morning. Can none of you sleep?  Are you in trouble?  What is wrong, my buds? Let's hear from you.  Please tell me all is OK with you.  So many of you are up and...

BODYWASH ??

What the hell is a bodywash? Are we talking soap here? Why don't we just say 'soap?' It is liquid, you say. I've got liquid soap on the sink. Mine just says “soap?” What comes next? 'facewash?' 'Footwash?' 'Elbowwash?' ...

YOU!!

I know what you are doing. You are wasting your time. You've been dealt a couple of low blows. You've withdrawn into your self. You are going to punish God for letting it happen to you. God has no time for being punished. He would tell you. “You...

GOLDEN RADIO DAZE

Radio seemed pretty well washed-up when I got into it. Its glory was past tense. Gone were the great entertainment shows, the detectives, soap operas, after school kids programs, comedians, the morning guy with his bad jokes and the snow and school...
