The Keys are Found, and a Speech is Made

So, after I turned the Front porch and our entry way upside down yesterday, Papa walked out into the garage and immediately found my keys on top of a box of boots. I am grateful, and thankful that I had the good sense to marry him almost 39 years ago. He never once said anything …

And, the Keys are not:

At the restaurant we ate in on Sunday.  Mixed in with the kids’ toys on the front porch (it’s cold out there).  In, around, on or under the clothes washer and dryer. I’m beginning to think they are lost for good..

Where They are Not

There were 7 cat toys, a die cast car, an bookmark and some dust in the sofa, but no car keys.  More cat toys under it, but no car keys.  Not in or under the chairs, tables, TV or Papa’s computer desk in the living room either.  Not in the basement.  Not in the garbage.  …

Bad Monday

So far this one has been underwhelming.  I started out with a little correspondence, including an inquiry from our insurance company.  They want to know the odometer reading on one of the cars, they probably don’t think it could move a little as we say it does.  I’d love to fill in the space and …

The Lewis Family

OK , watch this: Late last summer,  Janis mentioned we might be interested in attending this taping. I sure wish we had! You might find more at the Lewis Family site.

A Little Drive

I headed over to Kalamazoo today, to retrieve our three “little” grandchildren. It’s a happy occasion, Sesame Street Live is playing at the Fox Theater. Since the oldest of the “little” grandchildren was 3 or so, I or we or whoever have made one of those shows with some combination of them. the year GD2 …

Growing Up?

D2 called last night to let me know that GD2 had ambition, perhaps more than we realized.  The cute little one was wearing a dress that I made for her older sister.  D2 said, how big you’re getting, to wear this dress Grandma made.  GD2 replied, “Soon I will grow big enough to wear Grandma’s …

The Dresses

You remember the dresses, don’t you?  If you don’t, GD1 and GD2 are going to be flower girls.  The wedding isn’t until June, but I’m a worry wart.  The dresses have a colored sash, which is called “orchid”, but which looks like blue on my monitor, and let me know what color on yours.  Knowing …

Do Something

Sometimes I have a hard time getting things moving around here.  this is one of those days.  Usually, when I can’t really decide  to do, or can’t start something  I clean.  And clean I have.  The place is vacuumed, the floors are dusted and mopped, the stairs are vacuumed, the dishes are washed and I’ve …

D*** that Blog Roll Thing

I want it to sort one of my categories with the NEWEST first.   My problem is with the “Listening To”, I want you to see what I’m listening to when I write, not yesterday’s, or last week’s.  Ick.  I’ve got an idea, though.  It won’t be pretty, but I’ll bet it will work.  There, I did …
