Standing the test of time

“Brief week” continues… I was micro-zapping some lunch today and realized that I was still using the dish and top from an old microwave meal sold many years ago (raise your hand if you remember “Le Menu”, the first of the “upscale” microwave craze). It occurs to me that I have a (trait, quirk, defect)… Read more »

Briefly

It came to my attention after reviewing the recent blogs that many of these posts are long.  Given that some of you possibly have lives outside my website, I am designating this week as “brief post week”. There may be some cynical people out there that say this is nothing more than a transparent stunt… Read more »

A nutty discussion

Our final installment for “memory lane week” comes a weekend late and a memory short, but that was Super Bowl weekend!  Who has time for workly pursuits (yes, I am destroying the English language before your eyes) when there are preparations to make? Still, today’s post is kinda-sorta a memory lane post, so let’s just… Read more »

Love hurts

We’ve all gone through it.  The heartache.  The loss.  The pain that sometimes feels so bad it feels like physical pain.  Love can do that to you.  In my case, that physical pain has been more than figurative.  Despite the pain, though, I have kept up my love affair for over 40 years.  Sure, there… Read more »

Tennis, anyone?

Regular patrons who have stayed awake throughout reading my blogs have pieced together a few clues to my likes and dislikes, one of these being my enjoyment of playing tennis. I am incredibly fortunate to live in an area where tennis can be played every day of the year.  Even on those few mornings that… Read more »

Flower of youth

Ah, February.  With it comes my second favorite holiday of the year (we’ll get to my favorite in a later post). Not difficult to figure out what day that is, obviously, so let me hasten on to today’s “memory lane” entry and explain why. I love flowers.  All flowers, really, but certainly the flowers that… Read more »

Waist not, want not

I’m running a special “memory lane” series of blogs all week.  You’ll get to find out more about me.  Probably more than you want to find out about me, but them’s the breaks of reading someone else’s blogs.  You try putting out this stuff on a daily basis and see what happens when the well runs… Read more »

Is it plagiarism if I do it to myself?

I’m on record (right here in this blog) saying I’ll keep to a strict daily blog for a minimum of the weekdays (there’s always the possibility of a bonus post over the weekend).  That’s a commitment I’m happy to keep and, while I have many topics that I can cover, another thought struck me during… Read more »

It was funny when I….

You can fill in the blank…wrote it, said it, thought it.  You know, you had to be there. The funny thing about trying to be funny is that the only thing you’re absolutely sure of is that you thought you were funny at the time. There are plenty of times when you are telling a… Read more »

Withholding comment

Time once again for our continuing series of random ponderings on life in cyberspace.  Today’s chapter:  Life as a website admin. Being but a tadpole in my writing career, I reasoned it would not be likely to need an administrator of my blog and message board.  Until I built up some mass with substantial sales, it… Read more »
