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 of Clydesdales at rodeo, Oakley, Utah 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, I was inContinue 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!”

Lucy, you’ve got some ‘splaining to do.

There are innumerable ways to divide humans into two groups. Of course, there are shades of gray in between, one type blending imperceptibly into the other. But for my purposes, examples will be given in either/or choices. There are introverts and extroverts, morning people and night people, tongue rollers and those unable to roll theirContinue reading “Lucy, you’ve got some ‘splaining to do.”
