Doin’ Anything?

| February 27, 2009

I have had a slow week.  I did finish painting the bathroom, and I put some of the items back yesterday.  But the towels are still in the living room, I think the painted shelf needs a few more days to dry out before putting things on it.  The door also needs painting.  Papa will […]

Not So Wordless Wednesday

| February 25, 2009

I know this isn’t my Genealogy blog, but this isn’t exactly a genealogy post. I became acquainted with Wordless Wednesday as a geneablogger, but Wordless Wednesday is used by other bloggers as well. S-Dad passed on a book of photos that Mom had saved for me, or for herself, or whatever. There aren’t a lot, […]

It Was a Weekend

| February 23, 2009

Friday was pretty nice, so I painted. I’m working on the bathroom, trying to get a little paint to drag me out of the winter doldrums. The Wings won, life was good. Saturday came, and Papa and I went to the home improvement big box store. We didn’t find what we wanted, but bought a […]

Saturday is Right Around the Corner

| February 20, 2009

There are a bunch of options for bluegrass in the D this weekend.  After careful consideration, Papa and I have decieded to head down to the Huron Valley Eagles and see B0 and John and ‘em.  We’ve seen Bo sing quite a bit, but this will be the first time we’ve seen this group.  Bo […]

Twitter in Plain English

| February 19, 2009

You all know by now that I’m a big fan of  Lee LeFever, and his product, explanation.  Common Craft is GOOD at explanation.  Here’s their latest: There, since you’ve learned something today, you can take the rest of the day off.

Sixty-Four or One-Twenty-eight?

| February 19, 2009

I read a few tech columns and blogs, but not enough so you would mistake me for a technology wiz, or even someone with more than basic knowledge of “How stuff works”.  Today, however, a headine in my reader caught my eye, and I didn’t mark the item as “read”, I actually read the darn […]

Have I Mentioned

| February 18, 2009

That I sometimes wander. Not just my mind, but my entire universe? “Off on a tangent,” my Mother used to say about my personality quirk. I actually looked that little word up the other day, after I went on one. I sometimes wonder how these side trips happen to me, but not for very long. […]

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, […]

Just a Little Tune for Monday

| February 16, 2009

Monday, Monday Can’t trust that day… I have no idea why the Mama’s and the Papa’s song floats through my head so many times on Monday.  I guess it’s just an ear worm that never ends.  Well, this one ends, but comes back on Mondays;  not all Mondays, but many of them. There are a […]

RIP – Janice Paige

| February 12, 2009

I’m sorry to say that we received a call informing us that Janice Paige, Ralph’s wife passed away on Monday.  Ralph has provided sound for many of the Michigan bluegrass festivals, and is well known to Michigan bluegrassers. Janice had been ill for some time, and was a dialysis patient.  Please let those who will […]
