The day warmed up, and I was at the machine before noon.    Son Jason came to visit while I was taking a quick nap.    Later in the day, Son Guy helped me tidy some things up.    In the early evening, I watched one of my favorite movies, a sleeper, entitled 2 DAYS IN...

Last week I was meeting friends for a birthday lunch (Oh yeah, did I mention the past couple of days it was my birthday last week? Hope people got the memo) I couldn't figure out what dress to wear, so I played fashion show. One dress was too big (I've lost weight, go me!) one had a big spot, but...

Woke a bit groggy this morning, my lungs sore from bleach spilled in the kitchen.    Still no word from the management about our bathroom.  [Much drilling and hammering goes on at the apartment next door.]    A highlight of my Email time was laying criticism on DISH for...

          For some time now I’ve been concerned about the direction our culture was taking, but I’ve been reluctant to write about it, because there’s nothing more annoying than some old guy waxing pathetic about the good old days.     ...

The day is bright, but we have a raggedy schedule.    Son Guy had been sleeping deeply, and I was at the machine most of the early afternoon, doing my Email chores.    The phone alerted me that our friend wanted to come in from the dangerous sunlight, were he suspected that a...

Son Guy woke me at 8 a.m. this morning; it's been a long day.  But much was accomplished at the old Miles and Irma(sic) Archer Memorial Information Center.    First, I helped Guy through some glitches in his laptop program.  He was quite anxious, but as the day went on, he came...

Son Guy's computer helper stayed overnight, but was gone before I woke.    Guy is highly excited about his laptop.  He is beginning to get a small hang of it.   Son Jason made several visits.    I spent the day finishing putting my CD's in the machine, in between...

Mother's Day was a little rough for our little posse.    Son Guy had been up most of the night trying to generate his laptop into action, with only limited success.  I tried to work with him in the late morning and early afternoon to get him onto the  wi-fi, after his mentor at...

That's kind of a weird statement, isn't it? "Now that it's still fresh" ? Well, what I am referring to is the current season of Mad Men. Astounding. I was under a deadline through most of the current season, so I haven't been able to comment about it until now. Super-duper loyal readers of this...

Another warm day.    Arranged some more papers, had another disagreement.   Son Jason appeared, and we had a chat, preparing for a birthday at week's end, as best we can.    Talked with Grace.  She was preparing a "four hour pork roast."  She sounded sunny and...
