A thousand words, maybe, but not two eyes

No supermoon for me, much too cloudy. But the lower-humidity “fall” air (temps could fall below 60 soon – gasp!) generates some spectacular displays all its own. Photography and I are old foes. Either ducking them in my youth or taking them over the years, I’ve not had a friendly or rewarding relationship. So, it… Read more »

A month of goodbyes

May is always a fun month for me. It’s got Mother’s Day, which is awesome.  Even though I can’t visit Mom anymore, I’m not sad, since she’s always with me (it’s probably time to do another tribute to Mom, for you new readers).  Plus, there are tons of other Moms I know and admire. May… Read more »

I came into a bit of good fortune recently, in one of those six degrees of separation type ways.  This one started out as I was visiting with my friends as they bowled in their morning league.  At present were… Read more »

Have a niece day

Enjoying kids as much as I do and not having any of my own doesn’t create as many problems as you might think. I have plenty of “nephews” and “nieces” from a variety of friends, where I am most often given the “Uncle Jeffrey” treatment.  But I only have two authentic nieces. As most parents… Read more »
