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!


The Whole Fan-damly

It seems like only a few years ago I had to show ID to prove I was old enough to buy liquor. Now, suddenly, I have to show ID to prove I’m too young to qualify for a Senior’s Discount. I miss being young. I miss the absolute conviction that I’m smarter than any old … Continue reading The Whole Fan-damly

Pop.

The other day my friend Swamp Butt mentioned that one of her co-workers had guessed her age at nearly twenty years younger than she actually is. “Must be nice,” said I. “Nobody has ever said anything like that to me.” But Swamp Butt was blessed with superb genes passed down from her father, who lived … Continue reading Pop.

Revealing!

A while ago on Facebook, I was grumbling about stubborn characters who refuse to do what I want. I promised to explain who was giving me trouble and why, after Book 17 was released. But meanwhile, here’s a teaser: I’ll reveal the culprit and the “conversation” we had; and I bet you’ll recognize the situation … Continue reading Revealing!

Rubber Chicken

I’ve had a love/hate relationship with rubber chicken for most of my adult life. (And after re-reading that sentence, I’d like to clarify that ‘rubber chicken’ is not a euphemism for anything unmentionable. Just sayin’.) It all started (as so many things do) with my friend Swamp Butt. I can’t remember the circumstances exactly, but … Continue reading Rubber Chicken

On My Knees, Preying

The past week was unusually hot. I like summer, but 38°C/100°F is a little too warm for me. So I’ve been getting up at 6:00 AM to pick veggies and water the garden. It’s gorgeous outside at that time: The sun is just coming up, the air is cool and fresh, and the only sounds … Continue reading On My Knees, Preying

Half-Naked Ant-ics

Well, Mom’s admonition to ‘always wear nice underwear, just in case’ has proved (once again) to be good advice. I used to think it was just silly. Seriously, Mom: What could possibly make me strip off my clothes in public? (The Fates let out an evil chuckle.) So. There I was, out in our front … Continue reading Half-Naked Ant-ics

Pithed Again

’Way back in 2014, I compared IMS to the experience of pithing a frog (from the frog’s perspective). At the time, I was slightly perturbed by the latent sadism in modern medicine. But now I’m here to tell you that if you’re looking for sadism, IMS is for amateurs. Yep, if you really want to … Continue reading Pithed Again

Eating (With A) Crow

Last week I went through the MacDonald’s drive-through for a quick bite. Not wanting to be disturbed by passersby, I parked at the farthest corner of the lot, next to a tall hedge. With my window open to admit the sweetly scented breeze, I chowed down. I hadn’t taken more than a couple of bites … Continue reading Eating (With A) Crow

Bee-Watching

I had a post all ready for today, but then I read it over and thought, “The world doesn’t need any more snark.” Yep, it’s been one of those weeks; but I’d rather concentrate on the good stuff instead of the tear-out-my-hair stuff. (’Cause I don’t think I can pass off bald spots as a … Continue reading Bee-Watching

Of Loggers and Lapins

We live in the country, so we’re beset by garden-destroying wildlife. Our big fence keeps the deer out (mostly); but nothing stops rabbits. They usually stay away from the house, but every now and then I discover that my perennials have been ‘pruned’ by sharp bunny teeth. It’s a love/hate relationship: They’re furry and cute; … Continue reading Of Loggers and Lapins
