An Alcohol Success

I opened up my credit union account early this afternoon when I returned home after an invigorating Pickleball session to find that some toe rag had paid Neiman Marcus over $1500 from my account. I immediately called the credit union and reported the fraud. It will be reversed and hopefully the thief will be foundContinue reading “An Alcohol Success”

Sherlock the Clueless Bassett Hound

I need to preface this post with the declaration that I have never been fond of animals. That began with my paternal grandmother’s rat terrier, a small but vicious creature which always seemed bent on devouring my ankles.

The difficulty with this process is that I need then to write down whatever the thought was. Otherwise the thought would vacate my brain and be lost. As an aside, I administeredContinue reading “Freedom or not?”

Starting an aged life over

It can begin with a debilitating medical issue related to a longer life. It can begin with the loss of a long term relationship or more. Other issuesContinue reading “Starting an aged life over”
