I seriously thought about keeping it open into later September as the days were looking so warm. Ah, but the nights are not! The temperature has dropped dramatically and if my heart wasn't stopping on it's own, it would be in the cold water! So,... Read more

After being horribly in the dumps for a few days, I found something to keep me busy. When I made calls for my 97 YO neighbor to get her gutters cleaned, I was disheartened. One company wanted over $500. Another promised me the moon and didn't ... Read more

Who says these things? "an unstable niece, who was now rightfully shunned, scorned and mocked her entire life" 'Not MY president' in a tweet about his niece. How can anyone respect a man who thinks shunning, scorning and mocking i... Read more

We're anticipating the greatly reduced effects of Laura tonight and tomorrow, could use the rain. My trash find was a disappointment. While the doors are really nice, they don't work in our tracks; totally wrong. Unfortunately my neighbor d... Read more

I'm disturbed reading about all the violence. The killing. I don't understand why people need to loot. I remember the '60's. This is different, close to anarchy. There's a surface purpose of rightful outrage but the undercurrent? It's opportun... Read more

Wednesday is trash day. Which also means if I don't time my walk right, I run the chance of following the trash truck and the trash "JUICE"! ... Read more
What's in your recycle bin? Being nosy.

Today is recycling day As I walked my walk I noticed what people recycle which led to contemplating the people in the homes. I know quite a few of the people on my route and yes, I was being nosy! My house had pizza boxes (stuffed with ju... Read more

What you don't "hear"

Lest you think I've become COVID-numb or cardiac stunned, not so, my friends. I still get 2-3 miles in of walking each day and usually in two sections so as not to tax my knees and hips. I have backed down from my strength training and shame... Read more

The day has progressed and so have I. Enjoying memories and talking to extended family makes things feel better. Thanks for all the blog-love! What I WANTED to blog was today my surgeon gave me the green light to return to my usual activi... Read more
Wasn't the blog I'd wanted to write
Tuesday, August 18, 2020      18 comments

I sat to write a blog, send a few messages, then I got THE phone call. End of an era. My father's brother passed away Sunday night. He was 15 years younger than Dad, 15 years older than me. We were more co-conspirators than uncle and niece. It... Read more
Mostly about nothing on a rainy day.

It's rainy and 20 degrees cooler than it has been this summer. It's refreshing! I got on my scale this morning and I'm up 5 pounds since last weigh in. I'm hoping it's an effect of my new medications but I think it's more a byproduct of feelin... Read more
