Bling Empire, The Queen’s Gambit, and Pudding Shot Recipes.

A Trifecta. Let’s go. Ah, the middle of the night. I can’t sleep because. . . (insert just about any cause and concern here.) So I turn on the TV to distract myself. First up, Bling Empire. I’m not exactly ashamed to say I watched it, but there was a bit more guilt attached to the viewing than I cared for. I mean, I wasn’t … Continue reading Bling Empire, The Queen’s Gambit, and Pudding Shot Recipes.

Can the Dog Pee on You?

“Can you come over so the dog can pee on you?” I asked my daughter. “What?” “We need to get a urine sample for the vet.” I heard the patient, deep inhale expressing the standard ‘what-now’ from my 25-year-old. “I’m on a conference call, mom. I’m working?” Along with most people, Scarlett has been working from home, but her home is joyously only two miles … Continue reading Can the Dog Pee on You?

The Crown, Season 4. My Review.

I don’t think there will be any spoilers here, unless you are newly hatched or just learning about history, or living in a cave. Thrilled that Season 4 had finally arrived, I settled in to binge watch with George, but he only made it through the first three episodes then fell asleep. I stayed up all night to finish it. The show flies by. Overall, … Continue reading The Crown, Season 4. My Review.

Synesthesia – Like a person needs another dimension to feel in.

I don’t have it, but I’ve heard of it. It’s quirky and so is my brain, so I did some research. My husband, George, said the subject was too esoteric for my blog. I told him his face was esoteric. Let’s move on and break it down. Synesthesia (pronounced sin-uhs–thee-zhuh) is the sensory phenomena from the Greek “to perceive together.” The most common occurrence of … Continue reading Synesthesia – Like a person needs another dimension to feel in.

A Story Worth Telling

Sorry I have not blogged in a while. I’ve been busy visiting relatives, vacationing, hanging with friends…. Wait. That’s just not true. While I thoroughly enjoy lying, I’m sure you will see through that one. Sigh. Below is an article written by a sweet (more or less), kind (sure), talented (ubetcha), man with a wonderful wife (his redeeming trait), named Don Deline. His daughter gifted … Continue reading A Story Worth Telling

Why You Shouldn’t Ask a Blogger for Tips

I made this mistake the other day on a Facebook site. Sincerely looking for tips as to what mistakes people had made or regretted as they began blogging, I posted the question on a conversation stream and got crickets. My first reaction was sadness that no one on the stream responded. Then confusion. Then ahh, I wonder if they think I’m trying to get an … Continue reading Why You Shouldn’t Ask a Blogger for Tips

What a World

True Story. My dear friend, Tom, was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. He’d had his routine, five-year colonoscopy where they discovered some benign polyps. The doctor asked him to come back for a follow-up colonoscopy in six months. Despite the doctor’s recommendations, his insurance denied the follow-up procedure as unnecessary.  Stop here and cringe. Tom, however, being a smart man with a smart wife, followed … Continue reading What a World

Hope in a Versatile Package

I’m waiting for the big football game, trying not to snack on the chips my husband poured into a bowl on the center island. Thanks for the temptation, George. Thank God they’re not BBQ, I’d be lost. So a supposedly fun writing exercise is to pick a letter and then four random words beginning with that letter and then write a story using them. I … Continue reading Hope in a Versatile Package
