Ack! Time flies. Or memory dims.

A glance at my calendar shows I should have a blog ready to post by tomorrow. Seriously?  How has this happened? I have only a vague, ill-formed idea of a subject. It is my usual practice to write a rough draft about five days in advance of publication day. Then come daily editing, rereading, clarification,Continue reading “Ack! Time flies. Or memory dims.”

Change of Venue: New York to Utah

Photo: Guest appearance of famous Clydesdales at Oakley rodeo. I was recently invited to attend a rodeo in Oakley, Utah over the July 4th weekend. Excellent! I combined a couple days solo in Park City to roam unencumbered into every art gallery on the street with the rodeo trip. As luck would have it, IContinue reading “Change of Venue: New York to Utah”

Brooklyn Trip, Part 2

Brooklyn Heights Tour Group: Samantha, Eleanor, Tour Guide, Dave, Dryden (small photo clarification–Dave is taller than Dryden, I am taller than tour guide but shorter than Eleanor. How can that have happened? I am the shortest in the family. Yikes) There are just a few more things to say about my Steam Punk hotel room.Continue reading “Brooklyn Trip, Part 2”

New Freedoms: Brooklyn Trip, Part 1

Finally! I was able to take a long-anticipated trip to Brooklyn, to see my children (two) and grandchildren (also two) in a narrow window of time when everyone was together. My older granddaughter was home from college for a brief visit; I timed my trip to see her, give her a million hugs, and hearContinue reading “New Freedoms: Brooklyn Trip, Part 1”

As I Was Saying…

I don’t think I’ve written two sequential blogs on the same topic before, but time for writing them has dwindled. Lack of hours, lack of interesting topics, have been rate-limiting factors. Posting every two weeks has not been a strain until this month. Yet now I have additional responsibilities–I have been released from COVID jail!Continue reading “As I Was Saying…”

Any Port in a Storm

I’m an avid collector of American sayings. As to their origins, I demand neither truth nor accuracy. It’s the thought that counts. And, if several sayings are based on a single premise, so much the better. I must admit my captive audience must be of a certain age to appreciate the origin of these idiomaticContinue reading “Any Port in a Storm”

I’m baaaack!

Where to begin? No blog-worthy events have occurred for weeks, but finally a few mildly humorous (as opposed to humerus, the long bone of the upper arm that I have not yet broken, praise God) situations have happened. I have acquired a constellation of symptoms that include overwhelming tiredness not associated with any type ofContinue reading “I’m baaaack!”
