Lessons relearned, again and again and again.

November 26, 2018
It's my birthday. I am 80 years old today. After all of this time one might assume I have learned the necessary lessons in managing income vs. outflow. Well. apparently this is not true. I don't know how often I have to learn about assumptions, the old "assumptions make an ass out of you and…

    One of these days I would like to have a picture of the way my heart works or displaying some indication of a brain living inside my skull. In all of these years I have only seen maybe ten pictures of myself that didn't make me want to cry. I am not pretty. I am…

    I don't know whether I am following the correct procedures here when I respond to notices. Do you receive them at all ? If not, thank you for commenting. I read them, appreciate them and I wanted you to know it.

  • My country ’tis of thee
    October 28, 2018
      Oh, God! The crazies are running free and they are everywhere we look, especially where we don't look. Could we have one day without staining it with the blood of innocents, just one day? We are a nation gone rogue, set on self destruction and trying to take the world with us. So, World,&h...

  • The Second Time Around
    October 27, 2018
    The Second Time Around   We just had out ninth anniversary and it passed by unnoticed. Our eleventh anniversary would have been on October 13.  It was also unnoticed. Confused? So were we. We had a brief high school romance, circa1954, broke up, went our separate ways until 2007. His first w...

    Wednesday 10/24/20/ Thursday  10/25   After the horrors of today, a day when bombs were sent to two former presidents of this country and the members of a free press et al, I saw protesters saying "Fake Bombs. Fake News".  I am speechless, numb with astonishment, nauseated by what I see. If ...

  • Spitting into the wind
    October 22, 2018
    Monday         70/22/18   We completed our mail in ballots and sent them out today. Our "one thing we can do" about everything is done. It feels woefully inadequate.  It feels like spitting into the wind or pulling on Superman's cape. It feels like the sands of time running through my finger...

  • Shameful
    October 19, 2018
    I am ashamed to be American today. Every time I think the president has sunk to the lowest possible level, he surprises me yet again. His open adoration of tyrants and dictators, bullies all, smacks of the deepest form of cowardice. He would wet his pants if any of these men came after him with&h...

  • The courage to be
    October 15, 2018
    Monday               10/15/18   I really don't want to spend time here discussing politics. I loathe and despise our president, most of the house of representatives and a good chunk of the senate. Add to that those latest soulless justices on the supreme court and you have a full house of lo...

  • Getting through, getting on
    October 13, 2018
    Yesterday I vented a lot of anger. Today I am, perhaps, a bit more rational. It isn't just them. It's me, too. I am as stubbornly opinionated as anyone else in my family. I would be disappointed if the family members didn't stand for what they believe.  If truth be told, I can't understand why&he...
