Connecting

Sometimes, when you least expect it, something happens in your life that takes you aback. It infuses you with a totally new and different perspective. I had one of those moments at breakfast yesterday morning. Truth be told, I was feeling a little down on myself for hurting so much even though I have reallyContinue reading “Connecting”

Good Karma

Everyone needs it. Karma is tangible to those of us who believe in it. It is inevitable. Putin needs good karma if anyone ever did. He was humiliated to the point of pity at his Big Day celebration of his “swift and efficient” defeat of Ukraine. Except the Ukrainians didn’t get the memo. They didContinue reading “Good Karma”

Catching Up

Whew! It has been a very busy week and today we both felt it. We ended up laying around and watching movies and reruns of Special Victims Unit. On top of that the temperature dropped as snow appeared, probably for one of the last times as Spring takes center stage. Believe I will post someContinue reading “Catching Up”

Mom’s

I was on another unknown road I took on my personal odyssey in the seventies. We were up in the beautiful Wasatch mountains of Utah. A beer in one hand, a doobie in the other, and my German Shorthaired Pointer Chopper with his head out the passenger window, pink tongue flapping in the wind. IContinue reading “Mom’s”

Super Sunday

One of my fondest memories from living in England was staying for six months in a very old English manor house in Oxford when we first arrived. When you are in a military family, it was the moving that got to you after a while. Girlfriends, schools, countries; always changing. So when we arrived inContinue reading “Super Sunday”

The Night Before Christmas

Only my very favorite night of the year. Still. The Domestic Despot has already hit the sack. She has been running all over the place this season and she is beat. I hope she sleeps well tonight. I won’t. I will be up at midnight and will probably wake her up so I can openContinue reading “The Night Before Christmas”

Stripes

Used to be the only people wearing stripes had done something bad enough to land in prison or those with bad fashion sense. I never got the whole “stripes are slimming” thing. I don’t perceive as anyone being slimmer or fatter unless they are nude of course, but short of that, who gives a shitContinue reading “Stripes”

Corn

Who doesn’t love corn? Creamed, on the cob, or popped with that warm butter-like substance they put on it at the movie theater. Who doesn’t love a warm slab of cornbread wet with butter, and oozing with sweet honey? We first taste corn either through Gerber Baby Foods strained corn, or Tony the Tiger’s CornContinue reading “Corn”

Second Chances

There are no second chances. We are undeterred as we push forward with our second offer on a house. We were really hoping the inspection done this morning would be free of any major problems which would cost us, but alas, we have put a repair list together for the sellers to address, or notContinue reading “Second Chances”

The ‘Barrel

My first Sunday in Ohio in 31 years, and I will definitely find a church to worship at. It is hard to go a mile without seeing at least one church in these here parts. Since I can’t practice at full strength in the hotel room, I have to grab time when I get it.Continue reading “The ‘Barrel”
