Granny Tells You What's Going On

Thoughts for a Monday

| January 11, 2010

I agree with Ron Thomason who once said, “It is hard to believe that only fifty percent of the people are below average”. For my part, in an average day I meet several people, and it seems like they are all below average. What is average anyway? Who let these people out on the street? […]

City of Troy Recycling

| January 5, 2010

I learned something today, and I wanted all my friends who live in the City to  know about it. I had some CFC bulbs to take to the recycling center. I called to get the phone number and found that the City pays a fee for each trip I make to the center to deposit […]

Just in Case

| December 7, 2009

OK, I admit it, I let my subscription to the Detroit Free Press run out. I am a reader, just in case you think otherwise. I have subscribed to a newspaper for 40+ years, at one time, we received 3 different publications here at the old ranch. Now, why did I cancel? Because the paper […]

The Service Flag

| December 3, 2009

I wrote about my grandmother’s Service Flag today.  If you do not know what a Service Flag is, you can read about it and see it on Granny’s Genealogy.

Honoring My Mother

| November 20, 2009

Mother left us for a better place on June 6, 2007. I was fine for a while, and the not fine, and then fine. I rode the roller coaster of life and found joy in daily routine, family and friends, my garden and my genealogical research. A year ago today we buried her ashes at […]

Mamma Must Have Let Him In

| November 18, 2009

You know about earworms, don’t you? I have one right now, and I’m going to blame John, who posted a couple of Buck Owens YouTube Videos on Facebook yesterday. Since I am never content with just a taste, I headed over to YouTube and caught a earworm that is particularly bad news. But, before I […]

Michigan’s Electronic Library

| November 6, 2009

Do you know about the broad range of services and data available to Michigan residents on the internet? Have you used any of it at any time? Did you know that some of the resources are available even if you do not live in Michigan? No matter what your answers to these questions are, I […]

What Did We Do Before Curbside Recycling?

| October 28, 2009

I remember when I lived up north, in a rural area. It was tough to recycle, real tough. We had to save everything, and wait for the Saturday the recycling center was open. On the appropriate day, we would load up the car/truck, and drive to the appointed place. everything had to be deposited in […]

Fun, So Far

| September 28, 2009

I wish I had some cool pictures to show you, but I haven’t used my camera much this trip.  I couldn’t tell you how much I enjoy riding in Lex, and this trip has made up for a recent lack of that activity.  We drove and drove last Wednesday, and arrived at Vine Grove, KY […]


| September 23, 2009

Light blogging around here for two weeks.  I guess it’s been like that for the last two weeks, also.  I am finally ready, and we are taking a vacation beginning tomorrow.  We will be in Vine Grove Kentucky tonight, for this weekend’s bluegrass festival, in Bell Buckle on Sunday for Dare to Be Different, and […]
