I'm Starting to Figure Out How It Happened

Posted on July 21, 2018 at 5:56pm 16 Comments

Do not lecture me on what I am supposed to do or say or feel at the end of this post. This post is not about my future plans, it is about my musings on this horrible age in which we live. 

One of the most enduring questions for human kind, which has been asked in many languages and in many cultures and over many millennia, is "How did they let that happen?" Most of the people who ask this question do so with the assumption that…


Summer 2018

I made it through the flu okay, I've had a lingering cough that seems to disappear on the weekends. Go figure, at least I don't have to worry about choking while gardening.

I finally bought a new phone today, the Samsung S9+. It's pretty spiffy, and learning all of the bells and whistles could take me a few years. There's something in it called Bixby that may drive me a bit nuts, it's some kind of virtual assistant…


Feeling Better, but Not

Tamiflu, DayQuil, NyQuil, Cepacol lozenges, Halls cough drops, generic pseudoephedrin, generic guaifenesin. I think the Cepacol lozenges are what saved me by numbing my throat, my ribs are about sprung from coughing. The -Quils don't use pseudoephedrin anymore, thanks to the meth addicts, so I supplemented very occasionally. That stuff just works. My voice is, nonetheless, wrecked right now and I had to exercise it on the guy from the pest control service who…

I got a little too busy cleaning house and inadvertently deleted stuff I didn't mean to. Hadn't realized the comment on your post was one of them. Red's a caution. I wrote about her on our 35th anniversary in November.

Let me be the first to wish you happy birthday Phyllis!
And don't you dare worry about life's contingencies today.
Sit back and glide thru it. Think happy thoughts of
a happy place
all that happy shit they say you should do!
And DO NOT rake
nor volunteer

Do something life affirming & fun
like sit around all day on the computer in yer jammies
or something..

Hey -- thanks for the note, Phyllis !  Yes, it is a major disappointment.... I hope for news soon, but since the car's been wrecked, it's all over anyway. It was an '84 bmw and the clean body was why this 'old lady' loved it so much -- the teens around here love this old car, lots of them in town. Mine was just too tempting for that 16 year-old idiot...

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your reaching out ~ thanks again,

Let me know if you decide to sign up for Sparkpeople. If you like, we could be "buddies".

Thanks Phyllis.

I'm grateful I can share with you ~ I hope there's some harmony too, where you are.

Let's have a wonderful New Year.
