A collection of things that have been going on around here of late: We lost my Mom in early May. She was 93, and had a stroke last August which she recovered from relatively well. She had some weakness, although she was walking a little. Her speech was slurred at times and she had trouble … Continue reading Miscellanea
A mélange, if you will, of tidbits on a variety of topics. I mentioned a few weeks ago that we got one of those DNA test kits for Lambeau. We have always suspected that he has some bully in him, but the actual results surprised me. He is 100% American pit bull terrier. Surprising because … Continue reading Much Ado About Nothing
In the good old summertime, I am sitting inside in the nice air conditioned rooms. The air temp (Sunday) is 95. Heat index is 102. I am not going outside unless I have to. I watered all the flowers and veggies earlier, swept the deck, and took the dog out this morning. He'll need to … Continue reading Monday Musings: In the Good Old Summertime
We are a divided people. We are broken apart by race, religion, politics, class, wealth, privilege. In recent times, those differences are beginning to look like chasms that seem uncrossable.

I also understand (and to some extent, am pretty sure) that's not even long enough. Our governor here in MA said today that predictions are that the confirmed cases of … Continue reading Monday Musings: Goin’ Nowhere
Lots of people are talking about the pandemic, what we are doing, what we aren't doing, and how we can get through this and come out on the other side- well, maybe a little bit better in some ways. I'm going to put links to two things I read in the last few days that … Continue reading A Couple Things I Found
Like pretty much everyone, we are under the shadow of the COVID-19 virus. We are fine here, but we are following the recommendations to stay at home as much as is possible, limit contact with other people, washing hands, and practicing social distancing. I know it's what has to be done, but it all feels … Continue reading Monday Musings: Behind Closed Doors
