Westward Ho!

In April, I was stuck in traffic a few miles from home and the drive seemed to take forever. Five minutes passed and we barely moved. I rolled my eyes. Would the drive ever end? Fast forward to early May, my son and I were driving cross country, more than 2,500 miles away to get... Continue Reading →

The wind at our back

In the middle of the craziness, I don’t think I yelled it, but I could have. I know I was certainly thinking it: “Run Toto run, run like the wind.”  My son needed his car with him in California, so when he was on leave earlier last month, we drove it cross country. The “California... Continue Reading →

Stay out of Mother Nature’s way

I cursed the snow. While I was working, it had snowed another inch to two inches of snow.

It starts off cold and wintry and then somewhere along the line, the trees start to bud, plants and flowers to pop up out of nowhere, and spring is here before you know it. For the record, Spring 2023 starts on Monday,... Continue Reading →

Low-down, cheatin’ dirty dog

I felt like I was cheating.  I felt like I should be wearing a large scarlet letter A on my chest for "Adulterer." At the same time, though, I could help but ask myself out loud, "was it really cheating?" Nah, I tried to convince myself as I reached over and gave her another rub.... Continue Reading →

Where’s Mr. Heat Miser!

And just like that the Christmas holiday is over, the decorations have been put away, January is almost over and February is knocking on the door. January is a strange month for me. I grew up loving the winter months, mainly because it meant the chance of snow and getting a snow day. (I hear... Continue Reading →
