Why so negative?

I’ve been going on about all my purchases online, particularly through my Amazon Prime membership (in fact, I have some Weber grill grates arriving later today).

One of the more beneficial aspects of the internet and online shopping is that … Read the rest

The road more traveled

“One has to wonder what they’re worried about. There’s something. There always is.”

This isn’t where I was going for my blog post today. Really. I had been on an unannounced sabbatical from political posts. But the recent comments from … Read the rest

No wind beneath my wings

Man. Totally out of shape.

I haven’t played tennis since my “boys” went so far south I almost spent … Read the rest
