So here I sit.  In the doghouse, my stomach churning after the spat with my wife.  She is a hard one to figure out, a protean woman if there ever was one.  One day all is well, she is cool as a cucumber, sweet as maple syrup.  Then up pops a day like today.  I trampled through the utility room completely unprepared for the fireworks that were about to come.  And there she sat like a wallflower stiff as starch. She says in a staccato voice, “You…had… better… buy some time… out… of my sight.”  I felt like a dummy as I put on my emotional armor and tried to appear uncaring, and hard as a walnut shell as I waltzed carefully out of her sight.  “Relax,” I say to myself, “and keep your proboscis out of her reach. Scoot over, Bowser.  It’s might be a long cold night.”

Wordle #116  Use at least ten of the following words:  starch, trample, protean, walnut, strop, staccato, waltz, churn, wallflower, dummy, proboscis, fireworks

Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
