Past Tense Pup Tents It’s been a long time since I have thought of pup tents.  There was a time when camping was a part of my life.  Albeit, it was short.  I digress. Tents remain a part of life.  Tense too.  Even back in my rather limited foray into camping anticipation(I wasn’t sure of the actu...
Not A Roads Scholar. . .  The other day, I had a memory from last year that made me smile.  That’s saying a lot for some since 2020 might not immediately come to mind when thinking of happy moments.  I understand but also disagree.  Please follow along. . .   In my opinion, there’s something to b...
Synonym Rolls. . .Somewhat Random Thoughts Taken In Another Direction Recently, Alexandra Ron and Alexandra Seigel mentioned synonyms in a featured post and that reignited an idea about the role of synonyms in our daily lives.  You know, synonym roles as well as synonym rolls.  Well kinda.  Becau...
Sloppy SecondsOr Something Like That. . . I typically avoid hyperbole but there are times when opportunity presents it as a viable alternative.   Waiting and pausing, even a few seconds, can help eliminate embarrassment along with other fates that most fear or should likely fear.    Words, like d...

On many subjects.  ActiveRain continues to be a source of...
Meat Me In St Louis Over the years, I am sure all of us have heard/seen words or terms misinterpreted in some rather unusual ways. In a comment on one of my posts last week, Sharon Lee mentioned a funny memory of her Mom’s pronunciation of the name Phoebe.   Her memory “fit”  with this-at-the-tim...
A Cookie By Another Name   This post is based on something not just years but decades old.  My mom's sister, our aunt and my godmother, was an exceptional talent in the kitchen.   I remember as a child asking for a cherry pie rather than a cake for my birthday because I knew where it might come f...
Life As A Guinea Pig     This is not a medical protocol-of-any-sorts but another glimpse of work-in-progress for everyday life.  It’s an ongoing study it seems.    As we know, this year is one where disruption has played an active part so much so that even the word disruption has a somewhat  dist...
 Checking The List. . . Like many of you, I am a list-maker.  While Santa has his routine, especially during this time of year, I am including things beyond the naughty and nice on my list of things-to-do plus experiences of manykinds to participate along with other priorities of the day/week/mom...
Although this post is now featured, attracting even more eyes with a reblog of it can certainly help reach more members.  And besides, it's the holiday season and staying on the "nice" list rather than the "naughty" one is typically a smart idea.    Comments for this reblog have been disabled, pl...
