Bits and pieces

No feature-length topic today, just some scribbles to keep those cards and letters coming. So, without further ado, here are some bits and pieces. The short arm of the law Keen-eyed readers can see a certain increase in rambleosity (hey, Merriam, new word here!) in my recent posts. Using those keen minds along with those… Read more »

Feet don’t fail me now

Newsflash! Getting to the end of the post at the beginning – my feet didn’t fail me at all. In fact, unlike Snoopy, my feet were asking for more! Post the bloated Thanksgiving dinner, I definitely needed to do something about my roly-poly feeling. Cue a reasonably warm morning (70) and some rain clouds that… Read more »

No wind beneath my wings

Man. Totally out of shape. And by shape, I don’t mean “shape” (that’s a topic for another post), I mean “playing shape”. Stamina. Wind. Lung capacity. I haven’t played tennis since my “boys” went so far south I almost spent as much time driving to and from the courts as playing on them. That’s been… Read more »

I should have been a bug

Little did I know when I penned the amorous adventures of Jeremy with the Queen Ant that I would one day be the subject of life imitating art. I’ve always been on good terms with insects. We get along well. Ants, dragonflies, even spiders. Mosquitoes positively adore me. And now, it seems I have a… Read more »

Master of my universe

Too long have I played the role of the mastered. No longer. Now, I am the master. I have allowed the preternatural cold air lingering in South Florida to imprison me in my domicile. Eliminating from me that pristine time before cars and small mammals roam the roads and the colorful appearance of the sun… Read more »

Toothless

Technology is amazing. It seems as if there’s an endless game of “top this!” going on. There are so many advancements and changes it’s hard for anyone to keep up. During my meager shopping spree over the holidays (mostly clothes and some cheap blu-rays), I did pick up a couple of technology items. Nothing phantasmagorical… Read more »

Between me and beauty…ants!

Gosh knows I’ve posted about ants; heck, I’ve even written about ants! So, you’ve gotta know by now I have great affection for the little critters (well, except for the several hundred tiny sugar ants that parade through my kitchen every year or so). However, they are really causing me problems these days. More specifically,… Read more »

I’m a 10…again

Missed it by that much. I strongly pursue a policy of making as few goals as possible for the year. I find that goal setting and, more frequently, goal accomplishing tends to get in the way of my stress-free (read: lazy) existence. Note: you get to make statements like that – guilt-free – after you… Read more »

It’s so sad

You’re probably expecting this to be a post about the election. Wrong! Feel free to get your fill on that subject through social media and cable news. I’m certain you’ll be inundated. Here on the JMD blog, we only discuss important things, such as what can cause the blue feeling suggested by today’s headline. It’s… Read more »

My bad

As frequently happens, my daily walk provided fodder for another blog post. Last week, as I dodged the myriad flying buzzing things on my walk, I had two near collisions with cars not looking both ways. The first was less severe, since I anticipated the rolling stop, but I was still a bit miffed. The… Read more »
