Good guesser

I’m not a big fan of texting. Not because of the terrors of texters and their lack of awareness. This isn’t a diatribe about distracted drivers or pedestrians. Nope, I’m not a big fan of texting because I’m just not good at it. I never considered my fingers stubby before, but I have no fluency… Read more »

Serendipitous

Or, how I love it when a plan comes together. Sometimes, things just work out for the better and the pieces fall into place, through simple good fortune. Such was my week as a non-hermit. As we all know, I prefer the solitary, seldom bothered life of a hermit. Or as much as a member of… Read more »

Music drives me

Or, more accurately, music walks me, but that’s just not as sexy a title. In this case, though, music writes me, as I welcome you to a cornucopia of musically influenced random ramblings. Maestro, if you please… You cannot be Sirius! I’ve had XM Satellite Radio almost since its inception. Most of that was the… Read more »

Spell uncheck

Occasionally, posts wander across my Facebook feed showing various texts gone “bad”, purportedly due to the autocorrect features on people’s’ phones.

For some reason, I was unreasonably sleepy-headed.  I got my usual departure day sleep (4-5 hours after completing the blog), but I just couldn’t stay focused. Of course, trying… Read more »

GNABRT Day 26 – Nowhere left to roam

With the unfortunate (but probably inevitable) “item left behind”, this blog and tomorrow’s will have to be kept miserly. Sadly, I left my ac adapter to the laptop still plugged into the wall in Kalispell.  Unfortunate, but replaceable.  I tried this little town’s (supposed) version of Wal-Mart and it turned out it was more like… Read more »

GNABRT day 24 – South of the border

Canadian, that is. A pure travel day for the Great North American Baseball Road Trip.  Plenty of activity both actual and mental as the day progressed. Foremost to be mentioned is that every vista during the drive was amazing.  I won’t use the word “unbelievable”, since many people have gazed on the natural displays before,… Read more »
