Our Mortgage Has Finally Been Approved

I Should Have Followed My Own Advice

Well I like to think I'm not slower 'n molasses. But sometimes I wonder. Today I wanted to clean up a tiled stool that was painted on its vertical and under surfaces. So I grabbed a bottle of 70% rubbing alcohol (to kill anything that could be on it) and s

Inventive Genius or the Height of Laziness - Writing a Book Report

During some of my school years, in middle school and into high school, I would have to write book reports. That might not have been so bad, but I had to read books I did NOT want to read. Now I invented the words "couch potato." I'll admit it. I have a la

Autumn is my time of year.

When the leaves that were green turn brown, it's the start of cooler weather, even here in Dallas. There are days that start off low, in the upper 40's or lower 50's, and then as the day moves on, temperatures can climb to as high as the upper 80's or lowe

My Weirdest Dream to Date

OK. What I am about to relate is not informative. It is not particularly helpful. It will do little to brighten your day. What it will do is put down via electronic paper and pen the weirdest dream I've ever experienced. I don't remember where I was or wh

One man's trash is another man's treasure!

IT'S AMAZING WHAT people have lurking in odd corners of their home which they regard as junk but, to the right person, is pure gold. Take Mrs Kasman. Over the years she has accumulated odds and sods of jewellery as gifts from friends and relations, none o

Not sure about this weather. It went down into the 40s over nignt but this afternoon will be up to 70 degrees.

The trees are shedding leaves at different rates. One sick-a-more is about fully empty of it's leaves but the other sick-a-more has over half of it's leaves still on so while I wait until they ALL FALL OFF, I won't bother raking anything. The day

R U hooked on Television or Internet?

When I am doing something I like like writing a post for one site or another, and listening to a YouTube song or educational video, I get up and walk by the television set, Wendy Williams show is running, and I walk right past it without even paying it a s

Is Dividing an Inheritance in Equal Fractions the Best Way?

You want to demonstrate to your three kids that you love them equally. At the same time (perhaps unconsciously) you want to make the writing of your Will as simple as possible. So you decide to divide equally whatever assets you will leave. Each child gets

It's about time for me to take a long look at my life.

After being tested after 20 years of being diagnosed with both OSA and CSA I have to look ahead at the day when I finally get a new CPAP or APAP or BIPAP machine. I am alive still, in spite of not having a nasal CPAP machine since sometime back in Septembe

Oldsters, Tax Preparers, and You

If you've read very many pieces written by me, you may well know that my most highly detested song is, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." No it isn't! Not only is it dark and dreary, cold and windy, so-forth-and-so-on, it is followed without a br

President Trump in Dallas 10.25.17

I hope the fundraiser got lots of people helping it grow so some positive change can happen. Yesterday I found out that President Donald J. Trump was in Dallas and I was happy for it. The days are getting shorter, the nights longer. Coole
