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 […]

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 […]

A Parent's Nightmare

I hate hospitals. Sorry Dee Dee, it’s nothing personal. I don’t like the ambiance, the antiseptic smell, the way everyone talks like they are in a library. With the exception of the maternity ward where there is screaming and the crying of little voices announcing their arrival into this world, the rest of the hospital […]

Have you ever noticed that the hotter it gets the more people slow down and the colder it gets the more they speed up? It doesn’t make much sense but it seems to be what happens. Cold seems to invigorate while heat makes you lethargic. Kind of odd isn’t it? I’m sure that there is […]

Uncle Jeremiah recently told me that the one thing he had realized about getting older is that the future gets shorter until there is no future. He said you reach a stage in life where you simply wake up, realize you’re not dead, get up, feed yourself, bathe yourself, and find a way to entertain […]

I always seem to adapt. I change with the flow of the river and usually I make a point of not sweating the small stuff. I wasn’t always like that but sometime in the past I must have made a conscious decision to try my best not to let life get to me. At least […]

Millennials and Vegetarians

Hamburger comes from a cow. Bacon comes from a pig. Turkey burger and turkey bacon come from… you guessed it… a turkey. Why am I telling you this?   The other day a work associate of mine, a vegetarian, celebrated his birthday. He and his wife went out to a local micro-breweries restaurant/pub to enjoy […]

Friday the 13th

Friday the thirteenth.  I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t care. Lousy days can appear on any day of the week or month. Tuesday the sixth, Saturday the twenty-third, it’s irrelevant.  Luck, good or bad, has nothing to do with the day of the week.   The fear of Friday the Thirteenth is […]

Out Of Sync

There is an odd effect that happens to someone as they age; the body gets older faster than the brain. That is what has happened to me. My body says I’m 55 but my brain puts me at barely 30. Frequently my brain will convince my body to attempt things it can no longer do […]
