FALLING OFF THE EDGE…

I think my last post was...well, it was some time ago. This is not an excuse for not writing...but since that last post I've dedicated a lot of hours reading other web postings, and have tried to find a happy medium between my own thoughts and...others.  I've thought of it as gathering seeds. Of weeding... Continue Reading →

MY BRA IS TOO TIGHT…

I’m on my way to see my Mother and Step-Father at the assisted living facility where they have lived for the past three years. I’ve taken great care in dressing this morning since I’m meeting with an administrator to discuss their care: past, present and future. Actually, since they will both be 89 years old...

WILL YOU STILL LOVE ME WHEN…

I turned sixty-four last year...which means, by the sequential rules of maths, I will turn sixty-five this year.  My  birthday is several months away but My Reader knows and understands that the light bulb has been glowing but has not been fully illuminated to the albeit dimly lit, soon-to-be reality of the happy sixty-five birthday...

JUST PASSING BY….

OVERHEARD: two women, seated, waiting for their afternoon bus to arrive...one is knitting furiously talking to a seatmate who is watching her and has commented on her obvious talent, "....I guess I get it from my Mother, although she didn't knit...."

This is after 16 hours of reading blogs written by other...people...you other guys.  I'm going to call you those people only... Continue Reading →

Book characters can and do reveal much of what an author wants to say whether time [and I refer to present time in this instance) appropriate or not. Author Peter Steiner's L'Assassin...

REQUIRED FIELDS….

There is, at long last, something to be said about all those pesky required fields I neglect to fill out..or in...as the case may be.  After spending (what seems like) hours filling out forms, ticking box after box, and also having gathered numbered and coded personal information needed to supply and satisfy all supposed rules...

HALF TRUTHS…

My friend Bill has quite a wonderful way with words. He writes "musings" now and then and distributes them... I'd like to think to very special people. I'm on his distribution list which confirms...how very special it is to receive from Bill. In his own words, "In writing these Musings, I know that not everyone... Continue Reading →

IN LOVE WITH….

I’ve got a confession to make:  I’m in love with Lyle Lovett. I’m fairly comfortable  making this  declaration out loud in writing  because  the only person who reads JOTS is on holiday. (I do so hope My Reader remembers to bring me a present.) You must realize by now that Lyle and I have a... Continue Reading →
