Granny Tells You What's Going On

The New Rain Barrels

| May 17, 2012

ХудожникподаръциLast fall Papa and I collected a few rain barrels. We hoped to give the plants rain water as much as possible, and lower our water bill in the process. This designer model was a Mother’s Day gift from D3 a few years back, and it has been getting a workout ever since it arrived. […]

The End of An Era

| February 16, 2012

ХудожникThat seems profound, but it is all I have to describe what is happening here at Granny’s. As his Facebook friends know well, the count down is underway and Papa will retire soon. After today, there are exactly 8 days remaining in his career at Avon Automotive. When he started working there in December, 1977, […]

Back to Blogging?

| January 11, 2012

Богородица We are approaching a milestone here at Granny’s. Papa’s retirement date is set, and he will be under my feet here at home helping me in the near future. This is a good thing, he has always been a hard worker, and it is time for a little rest. Life in the slow lane, […]

What is Really Happening

| June 2, 2011

иконографияКартинимека мебел Wow, too much to relate here. I have spent some time just thinking. What is important, what I should do first, second and so on. I was sick for a while, thankfully that is in the past. It did make me think even more, however. Our daughters are moving on, to places of […]

What You Doin’ Anyway?

| March 3, 2011

What in the world have you been doing? Well, a lot of things, and most of them take more time than I expect. Thing One? Well, the flyer for Pickin’ on CF is finished. I also updated the CMS on that page today. Anything else? One more that I will mention today. We are having […]

Sad and Pathetic — My Little Rant

| February 23, 2011

This morning, I headed over to my feed reader for a quick look at the headlines. The sad reality that the library in my city, Troy, Michigan, will be closing on May first was the first thing to greet me. Tweets showing that the Libraries in Birmingham and Rochester Hills will not serve Troy residents, […]

I Am a Guest, Again

| January 21, 2011

I submitted a few comments to fellow blogger Tipper, of  The Blind Pig and the Acorn, the other day, and lo and behold, they ended up as a guest post! I’m honored, thanks to Tipper.  Head on over and read the post!

Pickin’ On Cystic Fibrosis – September 16-18, 2010

| September 14, 2010

I have written about this before, three times, perhaps more than that. Cystic Fibrosis is a genetic lung disease , about which much is known. But there is no cure, and having the disease is a death sentence. I first learned about CF when a CF baby was born to neighborhood family, in 1973, about […]

The Steve Martin Banjo Road Show

| April 22, 2010

Papa and I headed out to the Max M. Fisher Music Center on Monday to see Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers. The performance title, An Evening of Bluegrass and Banjo, fit the event perfectly. Photography is not allowed at the Max, although you wouldn’t have known it by watching the crowd. Papa left […]

Really Missing

| February 16, 2010

I know I have been absent, very absent from this blog. Sometimes that is just the way it goes, I guess. I have been working hard on my genealogical research, and on my genealogy blog. I have been expanding my reading of genealogy blogs, and cutting back on Facebook time. The biggest change is that […]
