THE SQUIRRELS KEEP FLYING WHILE EVERYTHING KEEPS EATING – Marilyn Armstrong

It takes me a really long time to get these pictures into any kind of condition where I can post them and you can see what they are. The problem is not that the camera is too far away. It's too close. The infrared beam needs about 10 more feet to allow the camera to … Continue reading THE SQUIRRELS KEEP FLYING WHILE EVERYTHING KEEPS EATING – Marilyn Armstrong

NO ONE GIVES YOU SYMPATHY WHEN YOU GET A COLD – Marilyn Armstrong

I have a cold. It isn't much of a cold. It's the sniffles and a headache. Garry has the same cold. I am whiney. He is grumpy. And there's no point in complaining because no one gives you any sympathy. All they say is "Don't get anywhere near me, I don't need your germs." My … Continue reading NO ONE GIVES YOU SYMPATHY WHEN YOU GET A COLD – Marilyn Armstrong

WHAT DO YOU READ? – Marilyn Armstrong

So let's say you’re at the airport. Your flight is delayed for six more hours, and none of your electronic devices are working. Out of juice and all the plugs are taken ... and there's no free wi-fi. Oh no! How can you pass the time? Those chairs are too uncomfortable for sleep and you're … Continue reading WHAT DO YOU READ? – Marilyn Armstrong

AND THEN, IT WAS WARM AGAIN – by Marilyn Armstrong

It was bitterly cold and it snowed. Then, it sleeted. Eventually, it rained, but not so much around here. Mostly here, after the sleet blew through, that was pretty much it. The ice and snow lay on the ground and the plow came and scraped us clean. Of course, if he hadn't come, it would … Continue reading AND THEN, IT WAS WARM AGAIN – by Marilyn Armstrong
