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!
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 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
Christmas will be here in only three days, and I have a confession: Even though I hear about them all the time, I’ve never seen an ugly Christmas sweater. Apparently everyone else has. Everybody makes fun of them. Before COVID, there were even entire parties dedicated to the wearing of ugly Christmas sweaters. And I… … Continue reading The Christmas Sweater Conundrum
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 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
Well, another gardening season has come and (almost) gone. I’ve been gardening for decades, but every year I learn something new. For example: Never let Hubby start the tomato plants unsupervised. Each spring we talk it over, decide which varieties we want to grow, and figure about twenty plants should do us. Then Hubby plants … Continue reading Alien Volleyballs And Other Garden Lessons
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!
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
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
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:
