Granny Tells You What's Going On

Funny, Funny Friday

| March 20, 2009

Perhaps it is funny, but maybe not. As soon as Papa got ready for work this morning, we took the bed, the top of a big shelf and his night stand out of the bedroom. He moved the TV, cable box and VCR last night. Yesterday I took all the books and notebooks and put […]

The Camper Show

| February 17, 2009

I mentioned we were going to attend the show, so you probably want to know what kind of camper Papa and I bought at the big show last week.  Drum roll please: Ready? None. We did do a good job of looking around.  As usual, I noticed a couple of things I didn’t care for, […]

Dentist, Again?

| January 15, 2009

I have to go to the dentist and get my teeth scrapped off again today. Since I had periodontal surgery eight or so years ago, I’ve been on a quarterly maintainance schedule. Last week, when Papa and I were happily enscounsed on Jekyll Island, I received a call that my appointment was in two days. […]

Home on The Range

| January 4, 2008

On December 30th, a Sunday, D3 mixed up some cinnamon rolls.  All went according to plan until the oven failed to light when she turned the knob.  I don’t know exactly when we bought that stove, but it has been more than a few years ago.  I believe it came from “worst buy”, my least […]

Snow? A Haircut?

| December 5, 2007

Winter finally happened here in the Detroit suburbs.  I had to shovel the drive today.  Well, I didn’t have to, but it’s always better to keep up on such things.  And it’s good exercise.  Papa and I are headed out for a long weekend in the Smokie Mountains this afternoon.  I guess that’s why the […]

List Revisited

| July 20, 2007

You may remember the list.  This morning, after viewing the damages made by one cat spilling one glass of water on my desk, I decided review of the lists was necessary. List one, to do: Map to Beanfor the Goins benefit. Family tree chart for the reunion (done yesterday, thanks to D3 helping me. Genealogical […]

List — or Lists?

| April 18, 2007

Last night, as the troops were helping me with the dishes, I said that something needed to be put on the list.  A family member said, “You’re always putting something on a list”.  That was a correct statement. When I worked, I kept complicated project plans, with date assumptions, and other frightening things.  Now that […]

Seventy-nine Thousand Miles Later

| March 22, 2007

Once upon a time, well, actually in October of 2003 I needed a car. I had recently quit working and economy was my main concern, so we bought a Neon that had been leased or used, possibly by a Chrysler employee. The car had about 10,000 miles, and standard options for an economy car. Not […]

Camper Show

| February 20, 2007

Papa and I went to the camper show yesterday Saturday.  Talk about up and down.  We went in and out of many trailers and class C motor homes and decided we will stick with Lex for now. Lex has some drawbacks, but is already in our drive.  Using him requires no payments, no hustle and […]

Missing spoons

| January 23, 2007

It’s been clear to me for a while that I am missing some spoons.  The pile in the drawer in really small.  I’ve complained, asked everyone to return the missing spoons, and whined like a champ, to no avail.  I just counted, and there are 36 knives, and only 23 spoons.  23?  I’m no math […]
