My younger daughter signed our family up with an online genealogy site.
A few days ago I received a message that there had been updates in our family.…Continue

It's music that does the best to pick me up when I am down. Irish Whiskey, bourbon and beer are tied for second.
Isaiah was quoted in the bible as saying,"Awake and sing, ye that dwell in dust; for thy dew is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast out the dead." Although he always struck me as an old grouch, I always liked that.
When I feel down, I like to play a little music. I try to do that when no…Continue
Annie ask the man beast, “So are you the devil?”
The beast stopped moving and laughed a deep thick oozing laugh, “There is no devil. I was just lucky enough to be listening in that night. You silly human beings thinking you are the only things that matter and that there is…Continue

My husband, the alien, and I have been trying to buy vacant lots that belong to the city of Philadelphia. We want to build a one-story home because my husband is having trouble climbing stairs. Philly is a city of row houses and over 40,000 vacant lots. The city has created a map of these lots with “for sale” signs on a good fraction of them. We only want to build one home. We have been requesting to purchase lots that have “for sale” signs. Every time we…Continue

I have been known to get down; like super down, to the point, I sit outside with a bottle of whiskey and stare at the ground for days.
These are things I do to get up and at them; instead of staring at the ground with a bottle of whiskey and a 19 year old hooker from Peru.
His name is Steve.
THINGS TO DO -
1. Run through the streets of L.A. naked. I've been known to carry…Continue
Oh how death plays tricks with our brains.
We create entire visuals of a God and heaven
Out of the fear of dying.
We love to say, “No one here gets out alive” as

Annie wheeled over to her two laptops and art supplies and figured it was time to set up the new laptop and do some painting.
Ol John Harrington was out in the hallway talking to Delbert. Ol John could do some talking and it would always get back to his kids and what…Continue

Reality pays a visit
The Cross Creek Mental rehabilitation center was a place where the elderly, broken and crazies went to vacation their golden years away. The new philosophy of government spending was to just gather all the derelicts up into one group…Continue

I write to attempt to expel new thoughts going through my brain. In essence, my life has so many ups and downs like everyone else it has become a real Mouse Trap Game. Sometimes I feel like I am playing the lead role as the mouse.
So why do I relate my life to a game of toys gone by? That is because every single one of us remembers a favourite doll, game, or truck, that helped us through life. Toys are expensive, and these times money is not really growing on…Continue

There are magical things that dance about the fields and towns of Lanark County. No doubt there are tales to be told. I do not know who builds these fences throughout our county, but one day I hope to meet this magical artist. Each time I pass this house on the Appleton…Continue

Annie hears its voice
She opened her eyes and stared at the pit blackness of her room. There was an immediately noticeable sweet warm smell in the room. As she began to more to her right side she remembered that it had been another one of those nights where…Continue

Yesterday I wrote about the Witches of Rochester Street. Most of that story was true, with the exception of Martha Stewart. As far as I know Martha's spatula has never hit the town lines. Last week however, I met the closest I will ever come to the pioneer sustainable…Continue

Why am I in love?
I have no idea, I sit here, looking towards the sky,
Waiting for life to expand, to explode, to give me the answers.
John was sitting at the bar, looking for the answers, waiting for life.
He tried to figure out the answer, nobody knew what it was.
I stood at the bay, looking towards the sun, I knew mother was dying, she was trying to figure out the answer too.
"Would you like a drink?" the bartender…Continue

On the way back from the restroom at a local business, I noticed a new sign: Best Wishes
This sign never makes sense to me. Nobody ever offers mediocre wishes, or damaged wishes. I wouldn’t know where to look for used wishes or remaindered wishes, or seconds.
I expect any business I patronize to want the best for me, if for no other reason than their desire that I come back and buy more stuff from them.
On the other hand I sometimes have…Continue

What am I looking for to in spring?
Warm temperatures? A nice warm spring rain?
All of them?
The sun coming out, warming us out, tanning us?
Yes, I'm ready for…Continue
