The Sopwith Camel


In the Shadow of the Cult

Posted by Jedi Cool , 09 November 2011 - * * * * * · 1,625 views

I remember it must have been about 1980 or 1981. I was in 4th or 5th grade when a girl around the corner from our house in a small suburban Indianapolis neighborhood invited me to her house for a Bible study.

My parents said, "No". I didn't understand why.
"We don't know them". What did that matter?

As I understood things, the Bible...

As a companion piece to my husband's (seen here: http://forums.nightl...p;showentry=526 ), I thought I'd relate my frozen tundra experience yesterday when Mother Nature dropped a foot of snow on Indianapolis.

My workplace delayed starting time by 2 hours. I still decided to give myself 1 1/2 hours to get to work. I am not...


Trunk (or Truck) or Treat

After my husband dropped off his son at his cousin's to apparently cash in on their better trick-or-treat opportunities, he returned home to hand out candy. At the apartment complex where we lived up until May of 2007, we rarely had trick-or-treaters so he had never been able to appreciate the joy (or perplexity...see his companion blog) of handing o...

51 years ago, the descendants of my great-great grandfather got together for their first family reunion. Since that time, most of his children have died off. Only one remains and the younger extended family of nieces, nephews, grand-children and great-granchildren continue the tradition.
As a child, I remember enduring an endless trip down to Indiana...

Since my Papaw died in 1996, my Mamaw has lived alone in their big ole house. My other grandma lived two streets away but moved when the neighborhood began to slide downward.Mamaw refused to leave. Over the years, she has gotten help from people. We chipped in to fix her roof and make other repairs. She has a neighbor across the street that is very...


Gimmee an "A", Gimme a "D", Gimme a "J", Gimme an "S"

I'm an aunt again.

My youngest sister gave birth to a baby boy recently. She took a long time to decide on a name. A few months back, I asked her if she knew the name yet and she said they were stuck between Mathias and Andrew. I told her, "Well, you know you have to name him Andrew". I explained that every grandkid in the family had a n...


On Tracks of Steel

Last night, I was sipping a Dr. Pepper and trying to log onto drpepper.com to see if the letters under my cap would get me a prize. No such luck.

It's funny how the mind works. I started thinking of things that annoy me. My own personal geekdom begins to flinch whenever someone mispronounces a character's name, such as Pee-card instead of Pica...

Approaching High School Graduation in June of 1989, I was very excited about another event - the release of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade . My cousin took me out for a haircut, makeover and a viewing of the movie when it opened. It was a very special day and I loved the show. Indiana Jones was one of my favorite movie characters and I was a great...


When the Saints Go Marching On

I love my church.

As a young girl, my parents took us there and attended for awhile. Generally, they would be faithful attenders before my dad would get tired of going and sleep in and my mom would dwindle on until she, too, would give up since she had no encourgement or support.

My dad returned there after his second marriage. My mom really liked the...

I don't dislike children. I find them generally intelligent, cute and with a cheery outlook on life that we could all use.

On the other hand, I am becoming concerned as to the lack of manners being imparted to our young people. It's not that I am the parent of a perfect child. There are those well-intentioned people who dismiss my stepson'...
