An Ordinary Saturday Morning

This morning I woke up around 4:30 AM thinking for some odd reason that it was Tuesday. I got up and went to the bathroom, then started downstairs to feed (and shut up) Yella Fella. Only then did it occur to me that perhaps it wasn’t Tuesday after all. I checked the phone and saw … Continue reading

Believe What You Want, but Leave Me Out of It

Sunday I attended a church service with the rest of my family. Now let me start by saying I am an atheist, and while I was raised in this church denomination, I have always taken issue with their teachings, even when I did consider the possibility of God. The topic of the sermon was, Is … Continue reading

Imagine That! -a commentary

Facebook founder and uber-rich white boy Mark Zuckerburg has fought efforts to curtail harmful posts to his social media megasite. He didn’t care when a pizza restaurant was targeted as the supposed site where Hillary Clinton ran a child sex trafficking gang. He didn’t care when Sandy Hook was labeled a hoax and grieving family … Continue reading

Breaking Up is Hard to Do

I want to end it with Facebook, but I can’t bring myself to say good-bye. I have my reasons for wanting to stay, the most obvious being my desire to stay connected to people I wouldn’t otherwise connect with. Let’s face it, things have changed. When I first met Facebook, it was a cool place … Continue reading

Making Memories

My dad died. I’ve been trying to make sense of things since I got the news. Our relationship was…. complicated, and I don’t want to talk about that here. Death makes me think of a clean cut with a sharp knife that removes a limb, but not the phantom sensations. My father is no longer … Continue reading

How Could That Have Happened?

How could Larry Nasser get away with molesting so many girls for so long?  . To answer that question, I’ll ask a few others. How was Jerry Sandusky able to sexually abuse boys for years, though others had reported his behavior? How was a serial sexual predator elected president of the United States, even though … Continue reading

Living in the Now

One thing about Trump being our president: he’s led more people to live in the now than Eckhart Tolle. From the threat of nuclear war to the fear of a long, drawn-out government shutdown, many of us are embracing gratitude for what we have in the moment and knowing at any minute things could change. … Continue reading

What I Want for the New Year

At last we count down to saying good-bye to this no-good, very bad year. For me, 2017 cannot be gone too soon.  I hope the new year brings some positive changes. Here are some I’d like to see in 2018: A total ban on fireworks. Yes, they are pretty. They also scare the daylights out of … Continue reading

I’m Telling You the Truth, I Swear!

There are plenty of people out there telling us lies… if you can believe that. Continue reading

Talking About Retail…

I have made the decision that it’s time to move on. To be clear, I miss Rumpy, Buggie and Bubba dearly, and I will for a long time to come. But they are no longer here. Graybie, Hissy, Yella and Little Girl are. As am I, and our lives go on. I best get in … Continue reading
