My son and I have been playing "Pool" and another game that's like Scrabble,  called "Literati" I think.  We play them online and this concept is totally new to me!

Being tech challenged I lost almost every single game until just this week,  then one night,  shortly after my blog about inmates and their meals,  somehow I managed to win 7 or 8 games in a row!  Gosh dang it,  he was "letting me win"! 

Don't ya just hate it when someone "lets you win"?...

Things are going along swimmingly well here,  no new outbreaks of serious diseases,  no landlord just walking into my apt. when he feels like it,   no shortage of food,  and man oh man there's lots of heat in MN.!

Just when it finally cooled down to a comfy 74 degrees,  the weather did an about face,  again.  That's the mid-west for ya.

Well there's a cool front on the way,  should get here next Monday or so..

Perusing the local paper's "Sheriff's Report" is always an entertaining event.

From the 4th of August came the story of a concerned citizen that called the Sheriff to report a suspicious person walking down the street,  carrying what looked like a gun.

It turned out to be unfounded,  it was young blong girl,  dressed in jeans and tee-shirt,  carrying a birthday cake.....

Ya that's the kind of stories we get up here.  

Sadly there's always the "bad news"...

My cousin's daughter is close to death,  from cancer.  She has three children.  It started out as a simple case of a "little cancer"  in her finger and now she's lost her arm and it's infiltrated her body.

This is what I hate about life. 

It isn't right that a sweet, beautiful,  and otherwise healthy young person have this happen to them.

The family is going to stay with the grandparents,  my cousin and his wife,  and then the kids will go with t...

Christmas cactus,  oh what a lovely plant.  My dear neighbor, Mary,  gave me her cactus as she doesn't have a green thumb.  Her daughter Rene,  who gave me rides to the Stillwater Courage Center,  told her mom that I love to rescue plants so now I'm inheriting plants...

I feel rather like a fraud about the whole situation,  when I moved here I got into a bout of depression,  and my palm plant died off,  as did my violet ( that was an accident due t...

What a Friday it's been so far,   the heat of course is unrelenting and continues to burn up the grass,  drying out the flower beds, vegetable garden,  and making it difficult to do much outdoors without breathing difficulties.

I headed off to Wally-World this morning to get some milk and bread,  and though I'd planned on treating myself to a big bouquet of flowers,  headed off instead to the clothing area...

Oh boy,  I came away from there with...

So my son was engaged,  in October of 15. He proposed to her at the local pizza place,  he had them spell out "will you marry me?"  in green peppers!  The ring was placed in a box,  on top of the tray of garlic bread...

She was all happy,  showing one and all her ring.

October of 2016 my son was married to her.  Just her step-dad and 2 sisters on her side,  me,  my older sister,  and my oldest niece attended the wedding.

Because of ...

Well....a place to get water,  unless it runs dry.  That's how it is with writing.  Been trying to write a book,  it's so much more difficult than I had ever had imagined. Movies make it look easy,  just find a nice country house and take a break from life.


  Another day,  and as my older sister likes to say, "life is what happens while you're busy making plans".   Ain't it the truth..

I've lived in this apartment for almos...

After a couple of days of feeling blue,  tonight I'm more in the pink

I'm inheriting my son's "clunker"  as he bought himself a much newer,  prettier,  classier car.  He's sooooooooooo happy with his new toy and I'm happy to be getting wheels.

It might not look like much,  however it'll get me to points A and B,   just enough to get out of the house,  and perhaps by spring I'll trade it in for something a tad newer myself..

I'm not gonna get...

Fair warning here,  if ya don't like "boring trite blog enteries"  then do piddle along to the next blog...

Thank you.

Now,  it's been a strange day here,  I don't quite know what to make of it.  People are so damn strange,  so wonderful,  and so,  so.....well just plain confusing.

One lady that lives here has been so nice to me!  She gave a caftan that is satin in fabric,  and the colors are rich and vibrant.  Colors I'd never choo...

Figuring out that new Kodak camera isn't as hard as I thought it would be for me.  Usually I have to read and re-read directions a cajillion time before I get it. 

Tonight,  after figuring out how to use the video cam part,  the first two videos were of the cat,  then I spied a herd of crows perched on the garage roof,  LOL.  My Lord,  they were struting around and playing in the stagnant water like a bunch of teenage boys!

There is Elvis Presl...

I"d just finished up an email to a dear friend,   shut the computer down cause it was thundering,  and lightening was streaking around..... and then turned on the tv and of course was shocked and sickened to see the 35W bridge bent in half,  like a deck of cards,  with cars crossways from each other,  cars in the Missisippi River,  half in and half out of the water,  like a scene out of a bad movie.

I used to use that bridge when I'd drive to the U...

I'd heard of the movie,  however hadn't seen it until tonight.  It was on the Hallmark Channel and I promptly fell in love with it!  It reminded me of tv shows and movies I"ve seen,  part "Little House on the Prairie",  "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers",  and "Bonanza".

Nothing like a feel good movie after a rought 24 hours....

Yesterday I went shopping for bread and milk and came home with strawberries,  two new blouses,  and a new skirt! ...

A perfect day,  clear skies,  sunshine,  a soft breeze,   and....I have to go to the dentist.

Who'd have thunk it?   a dental clinic open on Sunday?!

Ya,  the Smile Center is open on Sunday,   so I get to go in and have a small piece of bone shaved off the roof of my mouth,  it hurts my mouth when I wear my upper denture,  and as a result haven't been using my denture.  Let me tell ya,  that ain't a pretty sight!  ...
