Quick Notes on a Work Day

* I am delighted to tell you that Ronni selected a story from the Kay for The Elder Storytelling Place. It appears today. I am honored and proud to have my work there. I hope y'all enjoy it! Drop by and leave me a comment. And thanks, Ronni!

* One of my favorite blogs is Baghdad Burning. If you've never read it, it is written by a very intelligent, obviously well-educated, Iraqi woman who calls herself River and gives excellent commentary on the state of life for the Iraqi people in that war-torn country. It is intense and often disturbing. Her last post was April 26th and she talked of her family making the decision to leave the country. I am worried. I hope you all will join me in praying for the safety of her and her family.

* All the hell of the past month has caused me to lose ten pounds. I'm not unhappy about it because I'd put on a few pounds but how I lost it bothers me. That I'm not eating or sleeping much doesn't seem to bother the doctors. They worry about me being depressed. All I can say is: Duh? Sigh.

* If you're a complete klutz like me, trying to refill printer cartridges is difficult. If you're frugal like me, you hate paying huge prices for new printer cartridges. If you have a Walgreen's near you, you're in luck! They will refill your printer cartridges for you for a mere ten to fifteen dollars each. Cool, huh?

* I'm delighted y'all like the Groaner of the Week! It will be here for a long time. I have hundreds in my archives. Prepare to groooaaaaaan every Monday indefinitely!

Today is a work day -- both at the office and at home so I'm going to try to get a semi-decent night''s sleep.

Y'all have a great day!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  1. Kay, my printer cartridges cost $15 each, so why should I go to Walgreens?

    I read your story at Ronni's - it brough tears to my eyes!

  2. Awwwwwwwww thanks, Judy!

    You don't need Walgreen's. My cartridges cosr $27 and I do.

  3. Your story over at Ronni's place was very heartwarming, Kay, and poignant, too. I was conjuring all kinds of pictures up in my mind. I didn't have a lot of contact with my own grandparents and later when my dad's folks moved in, grandma was mentally ill and finally had to be institutionalized. But grandpa lived in a trailer on the lot outside my bedroom window and he was my best friend.

    Thanks for sharing this with us.
