Yesterday, the newly improved DH decided we needed to take our large generator in for service. That meant hooking up the cargo rack on the back of his van. A few years ago both of us would have bent over, squatted under and had the darned thing ... Read more

I can stand on the roof of my former employer and see New York City. I see it every time I visit DD2. I am opposite the WTC site if I walk up her street in her New Jersey city. I still can't bring myself to visit the memorial there. Since T... Read more

Sigh. Perhaps it's the lack of sun. Perhaps it's the fact that on June 6th I'm still wearing my winter robe. Perhaps it's listening to my spouse moan the same complaints. Perhaps it's my yellowed drooping vegetable plants. I need to st... Read more

The two ladies were waiting in the warm pool. The trainer apologized for being 10 minutes late and started their lesson. Days later one of them was still miffed that he gave no reason for being late. Mom needed one when dinner was cold. ... Read more

This morning I'm heading to my weekly strength/cardio pool workout. I take those skills, the ability to use the equipment and pick my own days to add extra workouts on my own. Sometimes. I found a (free) water cardio class in the early evening... Read more

I've performed that reality check and it was interesting! I stalked myself when opening cupboards and doors in search of the elusive fix for whatever it is that ails me. Bottom line is part of me really doesn't care. So for this next cha... Read more
