• Debbie commented on the post, possible 6 years, 7 months ago

    It was never really possible before. Only when she thought about it logically. She never would have guessed it would ever be possible. But life changes – that’s for sure. Her life had taken so many twists and […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, fuses 6 years, 10 months ago

    The fuse box was in the basement and really did have fuses. Not breakers, but the screw in, glass top, old-fashioned kind of fuses. She’s known how old the house was when she bought it, but this just confirmed […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, mayor 6 years, 11 months ago

    The mayor paced back and forth in his office. Election results were still coming in, and it was really close. He’d been the mayor almost all of his adult life. It was unthinkable that he could lose his job. […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, cathedral 6 years, 11 months ago

    What the hell? Cathedral? What am I supposed to do with that! I could write something like – the cathedral had a hushed interior, smelling of mold and old books. You could just tell that mildewy fabric was […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, straw 6 years, 11 months ago

    I think that standing me up on Saturday was the last straw. I’m usually pretty easy going about these things, but after three broken dates in a row, I was getting pretty angry. This was a special date, in […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, brief 6 years, 11 months ago

    The brief was in my folder and ready to go. I took a deep breath to steady myself and then walked much more confidently than I felt up the steps to the courthouse. This would be the first time I went before a […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, switching 6 years, 11 months ago

    We were switching cars when I saw the dent. It wasn’t really a dent, so much, and a few scratches. In my new (to me!) car door. Probably a shopping cart in a parking lot, but who knows what it will cost. Then […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, nest 6 years, 11 months ago

    Her nest was so small I almost missed it. Right on the front porch, under the eaves. She was a Mourning Dove. I knew she’d been hanging around for awhile, but when I realized she had a next in the porch […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, chat 6 years, 11 months ago

    We chat. Alot. But really not about much that’s important. We even chat via instant messages when we’re in the same room. I think it’s the contact we need to maintain. That connection between us. We’re apart […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, grind 6 years, 11 months ago

    It’s teh same old grind every day. Get up, eat breakfast, let the dogs out. There’s no variance, no surprises. Almost no surprises. Sometimes one of the dogs has a little present for me. Otherwise, no […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, jelly 6 years, 11 months ago

    Jelly fish. Or is it jellyfish. We saw some of those at the aquarium yesterday. I had no idea there were so many kinds, or that they got so big. My friend was amazed, and said that even in her country, there […]

  • Debbie commented on the post, cap 6 years, 11 months ago

    The cap and gown hung on a hanger in the bedroom. It was a long time coming. Three kids, two marriages, and she’d lost track of how many moves. Fingering the fringe of the scarf, a sigh escaped her.

  • Debbie commented on the post, convict 6 years, 11 months ago

    I never thought we would convict. The nine of us sat in the jury deliberation room, stunned I don’t think any of us saw this coming. The evident, when taken as inividual pieces, really didn’t make a case. But […]
