A Decade of Difference

Day one, 2020. 1970 is now half a century ago, and I for one must say, time flies when you’re having fun. I usually write a recap of the year that had just passed but since this is the change in decades, I thought it would be worth looking back at the last decade of […]

The Holiday season is always stressful. I think it is for everyone, even those that don’t work in the retail sector. There is stuff you have to do, and a time limit in which to get it done. The holidays are the same for almost everyone around here. We’re all working the same schedule. We […]

Anatomically Corrected

I have had different injuries throughout my life. Knees, shoulders, arms, hands and my back have all had something or other happen to them. All of these injuries healed over time, with very little residual effects short of a couple of scars. I have been on crutches a couple of times but have never required […]

Book of the Month Club

Welcome to the book of the month club. It is not called that because there is a book coming every month, it is called that because it is how long it took me to write it. It took me two weeks to live it and two and a half to write it. Once I started […]

The ‘Caravan of Chaos’ arrived around midnight Thursday. I heard them come in the door and do their best to be as quiet as possible, and to their credit they did okay. I pretty much acknowledged their arrival in my head and went back to sleep. Three hours later I got up and went to […]

Agent

Currently, on the ‘road of life’, I am on a straightaway. The GPS is telling me, “stay straight for 22 months and 10 days before turning south”. Sounds simple enough. I know that the ‘road of life’ is never simple, but assuming I reach the next turn, what then? What happens to the ‘road’ when […]

Christmas Finally Arrives

Honey tells me the whole thing began a week or two before Thanksgiving. It actually started when I finally fulfilled a promise made two years ago, and had the picture window in the kitchen replaced. The seals were gone and the space between the panes had developed permanent condensation and you couldn’t see through it. […]

Never finished… that’s where life stands right now. Everything needs a little piece of me and ultimately nothing ever gets finished. I have eight paragraphs of writing completed, none actually related to the others but I have nothing finished that I can share with you, my loyal reader. This is the only excuse I can […]

Pilates Have Nothing On Ceiling Fans!

The kitchen project continues, and yes, I am aware that it started in November. It took a week after our return for Honey to get out of ‘holiday mode’, and back into ‘home reno’ mode again. The countertop has been templated and arrives in 15 days (professional installation). To Honey’s relief her new cupboards passed […]
