Signed, sealed delivered

I am, by any measure, a lover of greeting cards. Any opportunity to ship one off with a personalized note is exciting for me. The holidays, however, amp up my deliveries and my requirements, so I usually start early. By the time I’m done, I’ve had plenty of practice getting everything signed, sealed and delivered!… Read more »

What about me?

Any man who is worthy of the title should be asking himself the same question these days: What about me? Harassment in general and sexual harassment in particular are difficult subjects to self-judge. There’s the overt and obvious, of course, such as sticking a tongue down someone’s throat or asking them to “twirl” for you…. Read more »

How far friendship

Getting back to last week, before I was interrupted by several days of mehness… (What? With all the unintelligible posts and mangled grammar on the web, you would begrudge me a made up word here, in my own blog, my place of power? I didn’t think so.) …as I said, last week, I was writing… Read more »

And you thought I talked a lot BEFORE…

It’s the consistency. Ever since they had a bad holiday season a couple of years… Read more »

Today, I was working hard on the outside landscaping (more on that in tomorrow’s post). Most of the time, when I’m out front doing something that will take a while, I plant my iPhone on top of my fence and run a playlist to keep me company (and distracted from the sweat). Since I start… Read more »

Can I get my money back?

I’m such a soft touch. A sucker. I thought I was helping Puerto Rico out. I totally bought into the fake news that getting devastated by a category 5 hurricane was a disaster. Silly, gullible me. It’s not a disaster. Not a “real” one, anyway. If you read yesterday’s post, you know I was ready… Read more »

Racist or coward?

Ugh. You hadda go do it. You just couldn’t let me enjoy my Halloween preparations in peace. Ugh. Okay, let’s just get through this. The latest expression of…I’m actually at a loss for words…from the person inhabiting the office of the presidency has left me further distressed over the state of our nation and our… Read more »
