My husband has an aunt and uncle who have no children. He’s 89, with a weak heart; this is the most prominent of his numerous physical ailments. She’s 78 and physically sound but Alzheimer’s is stealing her mind. Neither one has ever been the brightest of crayons, but she was the… Read full post »
After reading Lezlie’s (L in the Southeast's) post on pain and the comments that people wrote in which they shared some of their aches, I thought I’d share a form of exercise, which is new to me but has been around for a while.
I have always loathed, despised and hated… Read full post »
I received this in an e-mail a few days ago. I then followed the outcome. Very interesting. This father has stirred up quite the controversy. Any opinions?
This is hilarious and you will love it.
Got this e-mail today. I could not have said it better myself. Hope you have a wonderful 2012.
May you get a clean bill of health from your dentist, your cardiologist, your gastro- enterologist, your urologist, your proctologist, your podiatrist, your psychiatrist, your… Read full post »
Christine Geery and I grew up in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. It's a city that is comprised of two levels; the older part, which is between Lake Ontario and an escarpment known as "the mountain" which was developed later in the city’s history. Christine and I might have ridden our dinosaurs… Read full post »
Every once in a while I have a severe attack of stupid, and I suspect this could be one of them.
I’ve always had a love of horses but being a city slicker, my opportunities to ride have been very few and far between. In fact, I’ve only ridden twice;… Read full post »
I have become quite well acquainted with chipmunks in the years my husband and I have been feeding them at our cottage.
They are always running, to where I have no idea, but they are a busy bunch to say the least. I guess I would be also if… Read full post »
These great questions and answers are from the days when the ' Hollywood Squares' game show responses were spontaneous, not scripted or censored, as they are now. Peter Marshall was the host asking the questions.
Q. Paul, what is a good reason for po… Read full post »
My husband and I recently returned from a trip to Poland and as we did a lot of traveling around, we were able to taste many of the local foods of the regions. I’m not much of a cook but I love to try new foods so when I saw… Read full post »
Thirty-eight years ago, we said “I do”
I was shy, he was not. I liked the way he asked the girls that other boys avoided if they would like to dance.
I took decks of cards and books with me to these teen dances so that I would not sit… Read full post »
On a recent bus tour of Poland, I was amazed to see HUGE nests
atop posts and on peaks of roofs, usually barns. In the
nests were birds that
required extremely large accommodations. I learned they were storks. I was so excited that I would finally get to see… Read full post »
Last Thursday, my husband and I went on a bus tour with a choir. We and 26 others were the groupies. I will not join this choir because they sing for the pure love of it and are totally dedicated. They meet every Friday without fail and perform almost every weekend. … Read full post »
It was on a typical day after school that my friends and I were walking home from school. We were, Christine Geery, of Open Salon, Mary Jane Short and I. As usual we were giggling and talking as only teenagers can. I no longer remember what was said (it was, after… Read full post »
We got him when he was three years old and he allowed me to take care of him for twelve years.
He was an extremely handsome fellow. A Himalayan, he had the biggest bluest eyes. His name was Symba. To me this name did not suit him so I ended… Read full post »
Until four years ago, I used to teach 5th grade. I couldn't teach any grade higher than that because I couldn't do the Math. One of the things that I was to do was to prepare my students (aged 11 and 12) for the public speaking contest held in May. … Read full post »
My mother- in-law makes an amazing cheesecake and a few years ago I felt the time was ripe to ask her to show me how to make it. (She’s now 86). She is generous with her recipes but because she has made this, her signature dessert, so many times, she makes… Read full post »
I am a Roman Catholic of Polish descent. I like being Roman Catholic. I don’t want you to be Roman Catholic. I want you to be whatever you want: whatever makes you happy.
I enjoy Polish/ Catholic celebrations. They are like comfort food and remind me of my childho… Read full post »
Did you know that there are THREE muscles in a row, horizontally, above the pubic area? The teacher told us to focus on crunching them one at a time. I was in the process of developing an aneurism when the lady beside me felt sorry for me and told me to… Read full post »
I no longer feel like The Orangutan Woman, with arms stretched to the ground. I can now write of my first belly dancing class.
Why were my knuckles scraping the ground? From trying to keep my arms up gracefully in the air and simultaneously soft looking, but also making sure… Read full post »
