April A-Z: World War tWo

And to think I thought I’d have a hard time finding something for “W” Monday, December 9th, 1940 I don’t mind working at the office when things are going well.  Lots of times I feel as if the girls don’t like me.  Today was all right.  Went to choir rehearsal.  Jakey must be getting rested…

April A-Z: Nickelodeon

I have fallen behind on the challenge, but that’s ok!  “Blame Naw’lens.” New Orleans Vacation SNL Yes, we try our best to never be those people, but I can blame our New Orleans vacation for the reason I have not been posting.  It has been a bit uneventful but very relaxing.  Anyway, here is the…

April A-Z: A Month of Many Tears

February, 1941 was a month of many tears. Friday, February 7th, 1941 I was having pains down low today and tears stood in my eyes several times.  Right after supper, Jacob came up and we walked in pouring rain down to the library.  Brought back some magazines and then brought my radio into the kitchen…

Just a day in Janurary, 1941

Nothing in wrong with a simple day. Friday, January 17th, 1941 It rained and thawed after the snow and now it’s just slush.   Emmy brought some potato chips today that have flavors of onion, celery, and tamale.  Ernie is worried about paying an income tax of over 7.00.  Washed my hair tonight and cleaned my…

April A-Z: Grand Adventures and Ghost Towns

The desert has such an allure.  I want to move out there.  I want to live out there.  At the very least, I cannot wait to visit again.  That will have to wait as I, sigh, live in New England and, sigh, have to work for a living.  There will be an adventure for us…

April A-Z: Franklin D.

Wednesday, October 30th, 1940 The president of the U.S. Franklin D. Roosevelt visited Springfield today and we all saw him.  We were hanging out of our office windows as he went by and he looked up at us, smiled and waved.  It was a thrill and I waved and shouted with the rest.  Jake and…

This Sunday I’m sharing something a little darker.  I ran across a blog by a writer doing amazing and amazingly creative things.  She is CL Muller at Daydreaming With Ink and Paper and she writes Fantasy, Dystopia, and Science Fiction.  A little known fact about me is how much I love all of these genres yet I…

Sunday Share: Kitsch
