    Look at Me! There is a woman I know

    who had a very strained relationship with her one remaining brother, and it really bothered her not to be a part of her nephew’s life. The brother apparently, from what I can remember, was married to another woman first, and she does have some contact with those kids, but the...

    Cellar Dweller15 Rogers St.

    It was a pretty nice apartment in a very old house, newly redone before we moved in. It was my son’s future father, who went by the nickname, “Magic”, but we called him Spock, much to his chagrin, his daughter, Cheryl (who tortured us with endless Madonna...

    Cookie Monster

    When I was four, I had a Cookie Monster book. In it, he was eating everything round, thinking that they might be cookies. I remember a picture of him in an airplane, and he'd eaten the wheels to the landing gear off. Well, I got myself so upset and was in hysterics because I...

    Hell In A Hand Basket

    Shoes I’m pretty sure it must have been

    Christmas of 1975, and it had started off reasonably well, with gifts having been opened and my brother and I were occupied with our new gains when there came a knock at the door. We really didn’t get much company, as my parents were not social butterflies and pretty much only...

    Squirrel An unusually warm day in February

    fools all manner of animals into thinking that spring has arrived. But it isn’t so. It was only a warm front passing through, and some animals would have done well to stay where they were holed up for the worst of the weather. It really seems such a shame as I drive by the...
