   In March 2014 I was sitting in the waiting room of the Mercedes-Benz dealership as they gave my work-truck its regular maintenance. I was reading the newspaper and I came across a story buried way in the back, one my father would have called a filler piece. If there had been more news that […]

Seagulls And Schooners

   There was plenty of down-time during our road trip. Time spent sitting sipping a beverage, with no place to be and no time to be there at. I would call it leisure time. The only real decision to be made was what and where to eat. Some places we were didn’t offer many choices, […]

Treasure Hunt

   Ten days to go before we, Honey and I, embark on our odyssey towards the Outer Banks. Yes, that stretches the truth to its outer banks, but we are headed in that general direction. There are zero plans of going there, it would involve a boat and probably bad weather. I just thought it […]

I find there is too much going on in the world and that managing to have one complete thought, before another one pops into my head, is all but impossible. It would probably help if I didn’t spend time watching and reading the news. Mind you if I didn’t, I might never have known about […]

I Have A Tail... Who Knew?

Since spring appears to have finally arrived my weekend has been spent outdoors, therefore you get retreads today. Just to help your understanding, the cat I refer to in the following piece belongs to IT Genie and is not the current feline that has taken up residence in my home. Honey and I gave shelter […]

Dogs and Cats

We installed a cat door in the screen door to our deck. I watched the cat go through it the other day and all I can say is… “Damn that cat is fat!” It made me think of when she first arrived and I wrote the following.   June 2015 Her name is Cleo. The […]

I promised you the story of Tequila Wendy in my last post but after a week I seem to be struggling with getting it down on paper. So rather than torture myself I thought I would move on for now and come back to it later or never… we’ll see.   I am back at […]
