Browser Feed Sources on Crack

There was a bear rescue in Russia. I think. A mama bear and two cubs were stranded in the water. The problem is I may never know how the story turned out because I got too irritated to complete reading it. Like everyone else, I typically flip through the feed of stories on my browser, but I rarely click to read things from sources I’m … Continue reading Browser Feed Sources on Crack

It’s a Dunderstorm!

That’s what my kids call it. Is there anything better than a thunderstorm in the middle of the night? Lying in bed, feeling snuggly under the covers as the skies rumble outside. After my mom passed, I did what you call, took to bed, and for many weeks, comforted myself listening to thunderstorms. You can play them through a variety of apps, but I listened … Continue reading It’s a Dunderstorm!

Design Home. An App to Reckon With.

Adding to my long list of confessions, this one, sigh, is similar to my last. I’m addicted to another game called Design Home. According to my stats, I got sucked into this game on New Year’s Eve, 2017. I was either bored, alone, or drunk at a party. Frankly, I don’t recall how the introduction was made. If you haven’t used this app, let me … Continue reading Design Home. An App to Reckon With.

It’s a Beautiful Day in My Neighborhood

I have a drawer in my kitchen completely devoted to candy. I blame my Aunt Betty. As a child, I would visit my Aunt Betty and Uncle Eddie, sometimes even staying with them for lengths of time, and marvel over the fact that they had this not-so-secret drawer stocked with candy. You could visit it any time. Just grab candy, then hit the garage fridge … Continue reading It’s a Beautiful Day in My Neighborhood

Can Being Fabulous Get You Arrested?

I recently had the joy of sitting at the social security office for many hours, clutching my number and waiting—not patiently, for it to be called. As legal guardian for a relative, I needed to present myself with some paperwork. That’s fine, but damn, the wait was long. I made a few acquaintances, played a lot of games on my phone, read the paper, and … Continue reading Can Being Fabulous Get You Arrested?

Time to Smudge

There’s a paperclip in the butter. I’m just staring at it. A jumbo-size green one. How did it get there? We have a butter dish cause that’s how we roll. (What’s that joke? Maybe I’m butter, cause I’m on a roll? Sorry, I’m sure I got that wrong.) We’re a butter family—not margarine. Never have bought margarine, but hey, good for you if you choose … Continue reading Time to Smudge

Beware of Kohler Trash Cans!

What a trivial thing to be writing about, but I can’t stop myself! Ask anyone in my family, and they’ll tell you I’ve bored them crazy over my ongoing trashcan problem. It’s a forever problem and Kohler, you just made the shit list. I’d thought I’d found it. It was Heaven-in-an-aisle as I walked down the row of beautiful, well-made trash cans at The Container … Continue reading Beware of Kohler Trash Cans!

The Great Coffeemaker Puzzle. Do We Have Gremlins?

We recently went through four coffee makers and are on our fifth. How did that happen you ask? Good question. Part argh! Part stupid. Part what? Part shit! Oddly, after we got our fifth, I’ve been dreaming of another. The first one broke. Just wouldn’t turn on one day. Its job is to turn on, but no. It stopped cooperating. The second one was purchased … Continue reading The Great Coffeemaker Puzzle. Do We Have Gremlins?

The Password is What?

“George,” I yelled down the stairs. “Did you re-set the user name and password for the bank?” I waited patiently at the top, not wanting to deal with the puppy gate and the need to tread down to the construction zone which is currently our basement. No answer. Argh. I pushed the rambunctious dog out of the way and closed the gate securely behind me. … Continue reading The Password is What?
