Am I bright enough for a smart phone??

Probably not... ... it was a possibility voiced the day the chimney cleaner/fixer guy came to the house and she waved her arm in my direction saying "she's not too bright". But since she's lost those filters that prevent most of us from saying rude things about a person, especially when they're standing right in front of you... I can cut …

Do you read every page of every book you start?

Honestly, I don't.  And I feel guilty about that. So I'm thinking our upcoming move will be a good opportunity to purge my book collection.  I need to get rid of some guilt. I'm also thinking it might not be a bad thing to not complete a book.  Perhaps I learned what I needed to learn from the pages …

Mom, Where am I?

So after you've announced you're leaving your job...what next??

That said, as a family we have a history of fashion oddities beyond the white …

Plant History

Every time I've moved much is given or sadly thrown away, but the houseplants must always go to a good home. One of my favorites was a "Prayer Plant".  The leaves roll up at night as if in prayer and open wide in the morning as if giving thanks for the day.  It was relatively new before our move …

You’ve Got To Be Tough To Get Old

First thing I do every morning is take my thyroid medication because the instructions say to take on an empty stomach, 30 minutes before a meal and continue on the same schedule forever till you die (instructions don't really say that last part).  If I don't do it this way I forget.  In the past …
