Blueberry sneakers

I’m sure I’ve mentioned before (and after more than 1,000 posts, probably more than once) how much my shopping habits have changed. Yes, Amazon has been a big part of that transformation, but I was buying off bidding sites like eBay and Qbid and whatnot long before my introduction to the megazoid that is Amazon…. Read more »

Shopping for disaster

I was never a Boy Scout, but, darned it I don’t seem stuck on that one oft-repeated motto. By now, regular readers know my background, but for the remote possibility of a stray newbie accidentally landing here while lost in cyberspace, here’s the short version: I live alone, no pets, no kids, no visitors except… Read more »

The shirts on my back

I’m a colorful character. It started when I was little, making drawings in crayon, then graduating over the years to colored pencils and art markers. As much as I enjoy pencil drawing, I’ve always had a strong affinity for color art. It’s not much of a leap to see how that color bled into my… Read more »

So, let’s just call it the follow-on to my previous diatribe on annoying clothing items. Today’s outrage is over shoelaces. Specifically, shoelaces that are too long…. Read more »

Hair today, hairier tomorrow

The Great North American Baseball Road Trip gave me many ideas, not all of them related to baseball or writing. A number of my “learnings” related to my appearance.  I’ve already written about my clothing challenges.  Another idea that has sprung from the trip is what to do with my hair. I mentioned I was… Read more »

Traveling with the TARDIS

Now my training is complete. Okay, sure, I’m mixing my sci-fi references there, but it’s a free-form blog here at JMD.com so run with it. I’ve taken up the final phase in my training for my various national park stops on the GNABRT.  I have added the backpack to my daily walks.  This has led… Read more »
