Favorite Pant...

Favorite Panties

You know when it’s laundry day and you have left that one pair of ratty, worn thin, frayed of up to your navel almost cotton bloomers left in your underwear drawer?  You search in the far back behind the single sockettes searching for a possible bikini panty but sadly you only have that one laundry […]

The Bug, The Bedroom, The Boredom

The norovirus stomach bug ripped through the house this month.  The grandbaby got it first, still no telling how … we suspect maybe a shopping cart. Next Dad, Mom and several days later Grandma … that would be me.  With each new casualty we dug deeper into Google to find out how to kill the […]

Food for Naught

I normally read labels like I’m studying for the SATs.  I know the gimmicks advertisers use to try to and avoid telling you how bad something is for you and I usually spot them spot on.  But sometimes I’m in a hurry, or like this week I had a bad virus-bug and my online shopping […]

Getting Fired from YouTube

I’ve been a monetized YouTube partner for about 10 years. It’s never been more than pocket change but at the height of my active years it was a fun little piece of pride. My channel has over 1.7 million views, 800k from my Cat Toilet Training video back in 2007. But still 🙂 it racked […]

The serenity of this new home is deafening.  So much beauty, old growth trees abound, silence so deep it punctures your heart.  And the view … (exhale,) the views alone could build ships to sail beyond the horizon.  If there was an inclination to sail away … which there is not.  Because even in this […]

Every Woman Knows a Weinstein

(content contains assault, rape, child abuse) I read a long detailed article about all the women who have come forward with their Weinstein story and while my empathy was real, my shock was missing.  As women we have all encountered the random rick roll.  Most of us did so without ever considering that we were […]

The move is a week away and this house slowly no longer feels like home Boxes line the halls and are piled high in the garage clutter and chaos in every corner The move is a week away the things that were familiar once are no more the koi pond gone fences moved grasses planted […]

Don’t Tread On...

Don’t Tread On Me

Each of us inadvertently step on the open wounds of those we pass by on our path.  It’s bound to happen as we all are in a state of repair and rebuild.  And even the unintentional, unmitigated, misinterpreted pain, that our footprint pressed upon, is still wholly within our power to try and help the […]
