A Piece of Creative writing.

I haven’t shared entries with Babu is a long time.  It felt really good to do so today.  Here is a piece of Creative Writing from Babu!!  LOVE IT!!! Thursday, September 6th, 1934 One should be more quiet and more or less submissive on the day of confession, but to us that means comparatively little….

Autumn 1934

There’s condensation on the cars and a chill in the morning air today.  And I think I may have seen some autumn colors at the side of the highway.  The last of the blueberries are off of the bush but the tomatoes are going wild and the pumpkin vines are running away with themselves. The…

Balance…ahhhh…

We went on vacation.  For a WEEK.  And it was hard.  For the past few years we have done this dance where we himmm and haaawww about making reservations and when we finally decide on it, Adam will start saying not to count on it, it could change at any time.  We fight and freak…

Mornings

Our morning: Dash out – forgot to pick up prescription. Lay em’ all out! My nemesis.  I sure there is something in here about heroin use, drought, and Trump – all things I’ll have to talk her down, away, up from. Must fluff and flip the pillows before each time sitting down. An unflattering pic…

Sunday Share – Leaves in Fall

I just had the pleasure of finishing a blog-mates novel, Leaves in Fall.  Sam McManus can be found at Sam’s Online Journal and Leaves in Fall can be found on Amazon. I began following his wonderful blog to find out he has done the thing! Actually he has done the thing several times over and…

Happy Birthday Husband!

Last half of August, 1934 Excerpts

What a difference “two weeks” makes: Saturday, August 18th, 1934 We started for home at quarter after three and got here at 6:30. I’m so excited I can’t eat. Saw a Caveman and Penny. But Caveman as usual was silent. Jeanette wrote me a letter but gave the wrong address and it came back so…

The Last Half of August, 1934

She makes it home and she is glad!!  However, Jeanette greets her with a letter that never got to Babu while she was in camp.  It reveals that Drobey has found another girl.  Babu seems less upset by that and more upset by the fact that, at first, he wont speak to her when she…

Beginning of August, 1934 Excerpts

She might seem like a wallflower fading into a corner…. Sunday, August 5th, 1934 Went to church again. They must think I’m a regular member. I like Sunday cause we always have company and it isn’t dull. But gee! I was sure I’d go home Saturday and I’m not so it seems. Adele said they…

The Beginning of August, 1934

For the first eight days of August she is home sick.  She expects to be leaving the first Saturday and is not and states:  “Honestly I feel terrible.”  And:  “If I don’t have something to do here I’ll go screwy.”  So she paints her nails and goes to church and plays horse shoes and goes…
