It's Been Fun

WUclassic is gone for good as of May 4. ment.html?entrynum=0

I've been a paying member for 13 years, but it doesn't look like I'll make it to 14. I find I can get better weather info from local TV meteorologists and Intellicast than I can from WU. That wasn't the case a few years ago, but it is now. Navigation of the blogs has gone downhill. As to the photos, well, I won't even go there.

Closed for Repairs

Remember my dental bridge that failed back in January? On March 11, I go for oral surgery, to have the broken root removed and get a bone graft and two implants. My mouth is too small for the three implants I would have preferred, so when all is done, I will have a new, smaller bridge made. The time-frame laid out by the surgeon tells me I will be lucky if all is done and healed by Thanksgiving. Between now and then, it will be soft food only :^{

With all...

Just across the Cowlitz River from Toledo, South County Park is centered around a former gravel pit that is now a lovely 14 acre pond. It is stocked with fish, has a public boat ramp...

Monday morning, I heard the sound of chain saws nearby. The sound continued into the afternoon. On Tuesday, I heard the powerful engine of some piece of heavy equipment. I went outside to investigate and saw that a neighbor was having the tall fir trees around his double-wide mobile home cut down. It seemed the sensible thing to do, as one fell in a storm last year and two the year before.

Chain saw and heavy equipment noises continued Wednesday and T...

Lost My Mind

I seem to have lost my mind.

Have you seen it anywhere?

What is that crazy woman talking about now? you wonder.

Case in point: I wanted to do some baking and set about getting out the ingredients and utensils to make a cobbler. For that, I needed my favorite stainless steel 9x13x2-inch baking pan. It wasn't where it belongs. I was sick with the flu not long ago and DH had done the dishes a time or two. Maybe he had stored it a...
