Prayers For Grandma

When I started writing here I had great plans of being able to put something down each day, but families and life always put up roadblocks, don’t they?. Jim’s up in Pittsburgh. He flew up Tuesday because his mother had a heart attack, and it looks like she’s going to be ok although the doctors say she belongs in a home and not living by herself in that big house. She’s a sweet old lady and I love her a lot. She’s always been good to the kids, remembering birthdays and holidays. We're all praying for her.

It's a wonderful day today. The sun is hot, but there's a breeze so it isn't overpowering yet. I bought some lovely flower trays yesterday at Semples and theyre going in today. I love pansies, even though no one puts them in anymore. I think the combinations of colors just make a flower bed look so colorful!

Al Gore

I think Lurch is exactly right. I watched the Republican debates. They're a bunch of old rich men with no connection at all to us and our problems. In fact I think they made most of our problems.


When I read Nelumbo's piece about composting it struck a familiar chord with me because my yard is small, and the smelly effects of a compost pile are just impossible. Have you ever tried to put a swingset upwind of a pile of dead stuff?

First Post

This is my first post. I wanted to write about my life, my family and my country. I have a lot of thoughts and sometimes I can't sleep at night, thinking about all these things.
