Meme Bought Silly String

First of all, who is Meme?  The name Meme is what my first Grandson gave me when he was little.  When he would ask me for something, it would come out as “Me. Me.” Since I always answered that by giving him something, my name to him became Meme.  So from then on all of my Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren have called me, Meme, at least to my face.  Lord knows what else they might call me when I’m not around, but then the possibilities are far too many to imagine. My Youngest Great Grandson turned one on May 1, 2019, and a birthday party was held for him April 28, 2019....

Where’d My Menu Go?

Well now, it has been a while since the Widow let you know what she has been up to, but you can believe that it has all been days of learning how not to do things. Nancy Lou has been reading and editing, War & Commitment:  The Love Story of Nancy & Frank: Book II, but while doing that, she has been writing new chapters on this website of the fourth book of the Memoir. This widow-woman does not use a wireless mouse to move the pointer arrow around the screen.  Instead, Nancy Lou uses her pointer finger to scroll around on the computer dumafloche below the keys on the keyboard. ...

Winterizing the House

What an eventful week for me, so I am not surprised unbeknownst to me, that a real cold front is on the way.  With the weather being severely crazy in south Texas this winter, going from hot to cold then back to hot then cold again in less than twenty-four hours, I just put off doing the close in around the house thangy. The problem is that my house has a pier and beam base which means it sits up off of the ground.  Of course, not high enough off of the ground for an average size person to crawl under it.  Why would that be logical? Also, all of the water pipes are under my house, not in the...

What’s Going On Here?

As you all know, I have been spending a lot of time typing on a Memoir but I also like to do Widow’s Blogs, some funny, some just thoughts. Well, here’s the deal, I decided the best place for me to write the Memoir and Blogs was to relocate my computer to a table in my game room.  The game room was a large detached garage which we converted to an apartment then later took out a wall to make one large room as a game room and it also has a full kitchen and bathroom. My husband’s full-size pool table sits in the middle of this room.  It also has a treadmill, weight machine,...

Are There Secrets to the Polar Plunge?

I watched several videos January 1st. shared on Facebook by The Geneva Shore Report, a newspaper based in the town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. These videos were of the crowds of people in Lake Geneva getting ready then actually doing the annual Polar Plunge. Even though I live in Texas, I love this newspaper.   They share the news, weather, and special happenings of their town in videos daily and in their paper published once a week in print and online. The newspaper is owned by James Strauss who is a gifted author of many books and totally admired by his readers.  He can absolutely write...
