Why am I, a 73 year old geezer, writing a Blog?
Pay attention, please
Wth social distancing, we have been ensconced in our little worlds, to which we react with anger at the movement and social limitations the coronavirus response of government seems to provoke. We absorb every little nuance of the media explosion, unable to ferret out the reality from the misdirection. We sit in front of theContinue reading “TIME BY TIME”
Sometimes its easy to begin a blog, but, while this topic is relevant to today’s environment, I am not sure of how I want to treat it. So bear with me, this will probably be a rambling post. I had planned a different post but a friend revealed that yesterday was the 13th anniversary ofContinue reading “A Child’s Death”
I ought to have written this post around Easter time but didn’t, oh well! Before we had the 22 cats (yes that’s correct, 22 cats loose indoors) Tish visited a local vet looking for a kitten. She returned home with Casey. A butterscotch colored male with Mane Coon features, longish hair and a wandering personality. Continue reading “Resurrection Cat”
Booze and Loss Emotions are some of the primary triggers for substance abuse, whether or not one has been a chronic substance abuser. As humans we tend to avoid emotions. They can be slimy, hurtful, exasperating, and more. But they can also be pleasant, attractive, and positive. The latter emotions we pursue, the former weContinue reading “Booze and Losses”
Why in the world would anyone think of bathing a cat? Almost another pet is fair game. Cats? Hell no! However I must confess I have bathed cats more than 100 times. Call me a masochist if you will, but it was more in line of being a dutiful husband. Tish was want to bringContinue reading “How to Bathe a Cat”
On the national, state, and local scene we are witnessing a conflict between a number of factions. One on hand there are those who advocate “freedom to”, on the other there are persons who advocate “freedom from”. These positions are fluid however, with members of each faction crossing the divide to use the arguments ofContinue reading “Freedom To vs Freedom From”
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”
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. Woe be to the person who attempted to dissuade the dog from taking a chunk out ofContinue reading “Sherlock the Clueless Bassett Hound”
Today I was able to play picklebll again. All my peeps were available and game was on. The new Oxford University Dictionary defines serendipity as “the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.” That we are able to play is certainly serendipitous. The stay at home orders had eliminated almost all ourContinue reading “Serendipity and beyond”
When I started this blog I referred to my accomplishments so far in Stockton. To this point I have been writing about aspects of my life that seem to be missing or have a negative tinge to them. I would like to comment on some accomplishments, some small some large, but all significant. All theseContinue reading “Financial Lessons”
