Monday Musings: The NFL Has Officially Become the Touch Football League

Fair warning: I don't usually talk sports here. I know not everybody is a sports fan, so for those of you who are not into sports and/or football, you can skip this one.

I am writing this post on Sunday afternoon, so I have no idea how the Super Bowl will turn out. I will say this right now, though: Fly, Eagles, Fly!

Monday Musings: A Nip in the Air, Vacation’s Over, and Football

It has been cooler here in the Northeast lately. I can't say I am not enjoying it. I am not a fan of extreme weather. I don't like really hot or really cold.

Tuesday Thoughts: A Day Late, and Most Likely Several Dollars Short

Yes, this should have been done yesterday. I came downstairs yesterday and the house looked like a tornado had hit the kitchen and dining room, and then backed up to assess the damage.

Monday Musings: There’s a Chill in the Air

Yes, indeed, there is. And even I have to admit that it's kind of nice. This summer was brutal far too often, with high temps and high humidity.

Even hats and gloves, … Continue reading Monday Musings: There’s a Chill in the Air

Thursday Thoughts: I Think I Missed Something

Which would be my usual Wednesday post. Of course, I spent most of yesterday thinking it was Thursday, and I didn't have to do a blog post. Not sure when I thought I did the Wednesday Wanderings, but there it is. I blame it on the Monday holiday. I mean, yeah, I like a long … Continue reading Thursday Thoughts: I Think I Missed Something
