Welcome to my blog!

I post new content every second week or so — usually nothing too serious; and often downright silly. I figure life is short, so we might as well laugh when we can. 🙂

I welcome your comments on each post!


…And I Missed It.

Well, it’s been an interesting couple of weeks… as far as I know. To be honest, I was stoned and I missed it. I knew in advance that I wasn’t going to enjoy my COVID booster shot. My second shot had made me feel as though somebody had thumped me in the back for a … Continue reading …And I Missed It.

Happy 2022

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you made it into 2022 unscathed by weather, viruses, or discomfort from overindulging in holiday goodies. Well, maybe a bit of discomfort is okay. As the saying goes, “Everything in moderation, including moderation”. 😉 Hubby and I had a quiet Christmas and New Years for two, but we stuffed … Continue reading Happy 2022

Apparently I’m A Sissy

I’d give credit to the person who originally said “Old age ain’t for sissies”, but even Quote Investigator doesn’t know for sure who it was.  Nevertheless, the older I get, the more apt the adage seems.  It’s bad enough that my body is staging a slow and sneaky mutiny.  First my thumbs complained about heavy … Continue reading Apparently I’m A Sissy

Fate: The Practical Joker

Fate seems to think I need a surprise every now and then to keep me on my toes.  Last month’s dough snake certainly succeeded in that, and now Fate’s twisted sense of humour has struck again.  The setup for its latest practical joke was elaborate, going back more than two years. My vehicle was only … Continue reading Fate: The Practical Joker

Beware the Dough-Snake!

Sunday evening I was making myself a cup of herbal tea, with my brain completely fried after a grueling weekend spent putting on the conference I mentioned in my last post.  I steeped my tea in the pleasantly dim kitchen, then groped for the compost bucket to dump my tea leaves. But instead of the … Continue reading Beware the Dough-Snake!

Fall Colour

Hi everyone! The last couple of weeks have been a bit crazy — we had a death in our family, and the rhododendron society where I volunteer is presenting an international online conference in ten days. As the resident techno-geeks, Hubby and I have been pouring intensive hours into organizing the IT end of the … Continue reading Fall Colour

This Post Doesn’t Suck

Well, I thought I was over it, but apparently my attention-deficit dyslexia is back. When I first started misreading words almost ten years ago, I figured I’d be doomed to unintentionally discover psychological vomit, lap-dancing, kiss-ass guitars, fanfarts, and killer raisins for the rest of my life. Maybe I got used to my reading glasses, … Continue reading This Post Doesn’t Suck

So, This Happened:

Yes, this really happened. I have no idea why my brain thought it needed to throw out those two particular words this week. I don’t know anyone named Culpepper, and I can’t even remember when I last heard or read the name. I’ve never cooked brisket, or considered cooking brisket; in fact I don’t think … Continue reading So, This Happened:
