About elizabethblack


Just a reader, not a writer. I strive to be quiet and listen. I have opinions, but try hard to be respectful and not let an opinion of mine, expressed without care, cause upset.
I live in a very rural area. A beautiful area, but have to drive a distance for a real choice in shopping.
I don't have the time I'd like to have to be online reading and participating in the forums.

Seems real life and it's demands get in the way of the complete life of leisure I desire.

If only I had self cleaning everything - and four full time gardners. I love to garden, but the weather must be absolutely perfect. Just looking forward to spending more time here and reading and getting familiar.

It's dinner time. Victor had his walk and his dinner already. I've made an appointment to see a new oncologist on Wednesday. This one specializes in radiation therapy. So we are getting that set up soon. I need to get it over with and move on.


It seems like you are moving right along honey. Hope you like this doctor as well as you like your current doctors. I will be anxious to hear when they get your scheduled for the first radiation.

Late, late, late. Thank goodness there were still some delicious cookie crumbs left. And some herbal tea. Perfect. Weather beautiful and cool here. Sun shining. So sorry Scott you are stuck in nasty meetings. Such a waste of time. But you are made of stern stuff and will plow through. My poor Washington Football team. Won one, lost yesterday - badly, badly, badly. Tied with the Cowboys though.

I love reading all the updates from lovely friends here. Seeing what the weather is doing. Being so thankful for all the kind birthday greetings I have received. Makes me feel very warm and special. I get messages from friends in California and Colorado with fires and sudden drops in temperatures that dropped 6" of snow in the Boulder area leaving half the city without electricity due to the snow bringing down massive amounts of trees on power lines. I always feel I must be in a special place in the country as disasters seem not to visit here. Perhaps being in a valley is a reason. Brother in Tucson is on his way to visit cooler climes with son and granddaughter. Then hope to have them on the east coast to visit here in October. Brother does not agree with our darling Rump about the wonder of hot temperatures. He is very happy he did away with the ancient swamp cooler and got good old real air conditioning this spring. Today is a very solemn memory for us all. My heart hurts with the remembrance.
Sara, darling one, your cookies are taken and enjoyed every day, I just don't let you know that I am part of the reason they disappear so fast. Thank you.

Tilda Green

It is surprising how much changes in a lifetime. Cars, airplanes, refrigerators, telephones, electric stoves, big highways all over the country. All sorts. And people. Gosh, what changes. For instance, there was a little baby girl born in Tennessee and named Annie. Now, the parents of Annie’s daddy said they didn’t want that baby girl to go with her mother when she went to Washington, D.C....

Back to School Challenge: High School Disaster Averted

  High school is starting and I should be so excited.  I am going to high school and my expectations are over the moon.  Maybe just a little nervous ‘cause there will be so many students and teachers there I haven’t met.  I don't know if any of my friends will be in my classes. Makes me nervous to have all new people. It still feels warm, but knowing the cooler autumn weather is just...

Bewitched and Beguiled

The world revolves my angel, and once more   The time is coming when the days grow short, When happy thoughts of summer flee away,  And all around is desolate and bare.  Come fly with me to some exotic shore,  Where bathed in golden light, we two can sport, Dancing gaily on the strand all the day,  And through the night mount high into the air.   O cruel lady, tell me what I've done, ...
