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.

Our Governor has been very careful, but all of a sudden he is going ahead with Step 3 on Friday. Crazy. Now is the time to wait and see because 3 is too open and lax.

All is well for me and my cancer at the present. The places that cancer was in the past are still "unremarkable" now. That simply means they cannot see cancer there. The spot on the ilium is still "stable" and again means it is not growing that they can see.

This is all good. I won't be going back for another CT Scan and checkup until September.

I'm having my last cuppa coffee for the day now.

Larry, this is the news that makes a perfect excuse to go dancing tonight with a lovely picnic tomorrow. We can take Victor tomorrow. Deep sigh of happiness at your wonderful news.

Well, we have the best leader in the world. He said that if "we would quit testing, there wouldn't be any more cases of this flu." Wish I had thought of that.

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, ...
