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 […]

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.

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 […]
