The plumber is gone and so is the clog we couldn’t reach with our own little snake.  Life is good and my wallet is only $113 lighter.  I had nightmares all night about replacing 80 year old pipes but that good old 50 foot electric snake did the trick.  Thank Heavens.



Prompt: Broken & Over

The sink flows over

The snake makes no difference twice

Broken call plumber




My 97 year old uncle Harold with a portrait he drew, of a women he was dating way back when.  The portrait was in pastels and is still vibrant today.  Sorry I can’t flip the emailed image.  ~~dru~~

Popping Corn the old fashion way, can be an Act Divine!

Wonderful little bites of cream cheese pastry and sweet and tart filling. Perfect for the holidays and cookie exchange.  I was able to get 80 little mini tarts from the recipe.  Normally I make tassies but one of my grandchildren has a nut allergy.  I saw this wonderful cranberry jam filling here.   I knew this was perfect to make these little cookies. I could put my little tart baking trays back into service that I have had for decades.

The little tart cookies turned out wonderful.  They are pretty as well as good.

I just spent an hour and 45 minutes waiting at my doctors office for the orders for blood work.  The orders were supposed to be on file but weren’t and the whole thing was supposed to take 25 minutes, which it didn’t.  My HMO is really inefficient but cheap.


My counselor said I should try deep breathing; 4 inhale, 4 hold, and 6 seconds exhale, then repeat.  I think chugging another beer should do the same trick.


why is it that when crows caw directly over your head, you feel they are talking specifically about you?
