Tales of a Grandparent

Do you recall the family stories that your parents & grandparents shared with you? You know the ones that were passed down from generation to generation. Here’s a question, what did they sugarcoat or neglect to tell? We have all experienced the abrupt silence…

Mom, I’ve just been in a car accident.

A short time ago, the cell rang and my son’s name pops up, “Mom, I’ve just been in a car accident.” he said, voice quivering. “Are you okay?” I ask. “I’m fine, but I don’t know what happened.” I can hear his panic, which…

Where have the words gone?

Trying to figure out where my vocabulary went? Wonder how many others are experiencing brain void? Out of blue, I will be in the midst of typing or speaking and can’t remember a word. It’s the weirdest feeling, as if it’s inside playing hide…

Another year, the taxman cometh.

So, it’s that time again, TAX TIME. Figured that I likely would be paying so waited till as late as possible to begin my taxes. Knew what I had to pay last year and put aside a little more than that for this year’s…

Spring is in the Air!

Another Spring has come or has it? It was below freezing this morning with frost on the car’s window. Every year, that stupid groundhog predicts how long winter will last and I don’t know about anyone else, but who really cares. It’s a crap…

It’s the Monday after daylight savings ugh!

This is something that I never thought I would be doing sharing my feelings with complete strangers. But the way things are going, no one will read it anyway. Writing it down just might get it out of my own head. I’ve quit my…
