Currently Updating... Please Do Not Turn Off Your Life

I realize that every person on this planet has been affected by COVID-19, even the hermits. The disruption it has caused, to routines and life plans, is universal. But I can only tell you about me. What has this pandemic done to me? Time hasn’t stopped, and the calendar on the wall tells me that […]

I think I’m having a reaction to Phase 3. I might just be having a reaction to what appears to be happening in Phase 2 and therefore I am applying it to Phase 3 but I’m definitely having some kind of a reaction. Our area, relative to the rest of the world, has seen little […]

Warning... Relaxing Restrictions Could Lead To Hugging

Spring/Summer in my world has arrived. I have to include both seasons together because where I live, they are both so short in time that they basically comprise only one season, ‘Spummer’.

One Giant Step Backwards

The Final Delay

Part 4- Out of the Dish Row 30. I hadn’t paid any attention to my seat assignment when it was issued in the Dominican Republic. This was truly a mistake, one that I will never make again. The only thing further back than me on this plane, are two toilets, the galley and the rear […]

Even More Delays

That’s right… go back 2 posts for the start of this saga 😉 Part 3- The Deep-End We’re on schedule, go figure. Even though we have been a part of many delays around us, Honey and I are not really late. According to the big board at Pearson International airport in Toronto, we are on-time […]

To start at the beginning go back one post 😉 Part 2- Crossing the Dish Whoever penned the phrase “Misery loves company”, has never sat on an airplane. Absolutely no one is enjoying each others company. Miserable? Yes. Happy to be with others who are miserable? Not a chance! I know I wouldn’t want to […]
