Odd Sign


That is the sign I saw in front of a house when I was driving home this afternoon. I decided to take a different way home from some errands I was running (I could have gone […]


I found my thumb ring! Yeah!!!

At the beginning of March, I was getting out of my car one night and the ring slipped right off my thumb. It got caught on my purse and went flying. It was cold that night and my fingers had shrunk a little, as […]


My brother and I finally made it out on the water tonight.  Finally!

The weather was beautiful. Not too hot, not at all chilly…temperatures in the 70’s. Sky was brilliant blue with a few fluffy clouds, the water was glass smooth in some places and only a little choppy out in the middle of the […]

Today’s Thoughts (6/25/11)

A few thoughts on the 25th of June:

I was thinking about how they just accepted gay marriage in New York State. As anyone who has read my blog for a while knows, I am in favor of gay marriage. I don’t judge people and I don’t think anyone else […]


Today was the first full day of summer. My grand plan was to get up early (3:50 am), get dressed, drive to the beach, walk on the beach as the sun rose and then go home to take a nap. Then, later in the afternoon, my brother and I would go boating and, as I […]

A friend and I were out shopping and lunching today and we were astounded by the idiotic way people were driving. People cut us off, passed on the right (at an intersection on a two lane road), went too slow, went too fast…generally driving like idiots! Maybe it was because of the […]

Dad’s Day

Today is Father’s Day. My dad resides in heaven so I don’t get the joy of spending the day with him in person and wishing him a Happy Father’s Day. But I do want to honor him and recognize what a great dad he was to myself and my brothers and sister.


Big As Saucers

I had my bi-annual (is that right? once every two years?) eye exam today. They had to dilate my eyes because, now that I am diabetic, they need to check for bleeding. That’s what she said. Great….bleeding eyes. Something else to go wrong with my body. Sigh.

Anyway, they dilated […]

Preventing Violence

A man in Dexter, ME killed his wife and kids and then himself on Monday. Absolutely tragic. In the news coverage about it, they mentioned that the wife had taken out a restraining order against him. He also was out on bail because he had been charged with threatening his wife and […]

Holding my tongue…

There are people in this world who blurt out anything that passes through their minds. If they think it, they say it. This can lead to awkward moments, embarrassment for both the speaker and the listener(s) and hurt feelings.

I learned early in life to hold my tongue. It isn’t […]
