Every morning I sit on my cabana deck at The Playa and watch as the staff arrive for work. Coffee is first as they chat and putter about the kitchen. Once the sun rises, one of the young men will grab a rake and start to groom the compound, picking up leaves and any debris […]

Dissatisfied

Travel day is not something I ever look forward to, coming or going. If it were possible to beam myself to my destination, I would be fine with it, but so far that mode of transportation seems to be only available on television. For now, I must be at airports 90 minutes prior to departure, […]

Am I The Only One That...

Am I the only one that thinks the American’s are resembling the Three Stooges more and more every day? Their three levels of government are the Larry, Moe and Curly of the modern world.

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 […]

Rule Of Signs

My flight to The Playa is booked for February. Three weeks on the sand, just me and the insects. I can already feel the itch. Even though I am not physically there, my constant communication with Wendy, allows me to stay in the loop with The Playa, at least in a business sense. This is […]

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 […]

Crazy Fast

The last of my grandchildren is now walking. At least I hope it is the last, I don’t think Honey and I can afford birthday presents for more. He took his first steps a few weeks ago and with that, keeping an eye on him just got tougher. Kids grow up crazy fast. As a […]

Time To Take The 'Twit' Out Of 'Twitter'

I am not one of those people that reads the paper everyday, trolls internet news websites and has CNN turned on at all times. I know people like this, but I am not one of them. I watch an hour of news during the week, the half hour Canadian National broadcast followed by the half […]
