TUESDAY AT THE CENTER

Busy day. Got there about 5 min. before 8 – used to start my shift at 9:00 – but that was then. Sara (the director) the Kitchen Angels and a couple of the ladies from the exercise class were clustered by the kitchen door. Sara had changed purses, left her keys at home. So we waited until Bob the bus... Sign in to see full entry.

JUDGE SAYS NO HUNTING GRIZZLIES

I’m not one of those who turns into a bowl of Jell-O any time a cute puppy video pops up on my FB page. I love dogs as a general rule, but having raised and trained several of them over the years, I know the flip side of all that cute adorableness. They do not crap applesauce. So I enjoy the videos,...

IN THE WAKE OF AN AMERICAN HERO

There was never such a stark, obvious contrast between two opposites between statesmanship, patriotism, and civility and petty, divisive sniping than there has been this weekend in the wake of John S. McCain’s funeral. Even as Meghan McCain gave her father's eulogy, as her tears nearly over- whelmed... Sign in to see full entry.

LIQUOR SAMPLES

I was busy yesterday in the house, watching Aretha’s funeral, listening to the tributes, hearing her music. There were times when the news channel broke for bits from John McCain’s rites at the nation’s capital. All-in-all the speakers in DC didn’t come within a mile of the sincerity and eloquence...

CHANGES

We talked over coffee for an hour and a half at Panera’s, this ‘n that and remember when. We talked about the way things turned out, about scoundrels and liars, about some incredibly good souls, the twists and turns, missteps and lucky breaks. Then we talked about what now. He says: The new... Sign in to see full entry.

IRONIC

According to something I saw in the online news, “ironic” is the most misused word in the English language. Apparently we use it when we mean bitter or difficult, when it’s supposed to mean twisted and a bit funny. Or maybe I’m mistaken. (Wouldn’t be the first time.) Yesterday as I was fiddling...

WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT. FIVE LONG-TIME FRIENDS, 40-SOMETHINGS, HAVING FUN. As she leaned forward to catch Sheila’s punch line, Corrine caught the reflection in the mirrored beer sign on the wall. Some guy sitting at the bar a few feet behind her had turned toward Corrine and her friends. He was staring,... Sign in to see full entry.

TEA AND SYMPATHY

CCT mentioned tea as his drink of choice in a comment following my coffee post. The article I’d read about the health effects of coffee had mentioned switching out one coffee a day for tea. There was a box of tea in my cupboard, a box of Lady Gray. Remember Star Trek where Picard tells the computer,... Sign in to see full entry.

YOU ARE MY SUNSHINE

When the kids were little – in the era before seat belts and car seats – there used to be distractions from the back seat when kids got bored with “I Spy” and other games. So it was time for a sing-along. Usually a round of “Row, row, row your boat” would settle things down for a bit, but then the... Sign in to see full entry.

HORRIBLE DISCOVERY! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT!

Coffee is bad for you. I just read one of those “20 reasons why..” articles on my online daily news page, and it turns out my 3rd cuppa Joe is gonna make me crabby, make my belly fat, darken my teeth, weaken my bones, and cause sleepless nights. And it can cause irregular heartbeats, high blood... Sign in to see full entry.
