Life in the fast lane--where's the on ramp?

Tuesday, September 25, 2018


Have to admit yesterday’s plan wasn’t one of the best laid. I decided to check Google before heading out for the DMV. Turns out the facility is closed on Mondays. Not just the local one, but all those nearby are off the clock on Mondays. So will be going at 8:00 a.m. on my very birthday, the... Sign in to see full entry.

I’ll be heading for the DMV this morning to renew my driver’s license. Not a big deal for most of us, an inconvenience – it’s always a 3-hour ordeal, the counter clerks are not known for their warm welcome and questions are often met with one of those looks that mean “how can you be so stupid?”...

At The Checkout Counter

I’VE GOT TWINS As I do when there’s a new kid bagging groceries while I’m waiting for the clerk to finish scanning my groceries I asked him if he’s in school. Many of the workers at my store are business majors or in IT programs at the university, well on their way onwards and upwards. He grinned... Sign in to see full entry.

I had one of those prophetic dreams last night. Or maybe it‘s a product of the news I’ve been binge-watching lately – all about the fires in the West and this latest hurricane that became a tropical storm that became a disaster – a major flood the likes of which we haven’t seen in a thousand years....

I’m dealing with a bit of secret frustration that has to do with the Write Your Own Story group. It seems that one of our members has taken to presenting research he’s done on, let’s say, the origin of his name, or his educational background. Today he worked into his story his grandfather’s...

Tuesday at The Center, Abdel from the WYOS group showed up as usual for his exercise class – the stretch & move thing that starts at 8:00, and then he rode the Center’s van to the Walking With Wanda outing at the gardens walking path on campus. After he got back he shared with me the September issue... Sign in to see full entry.

I was in the checkout line, seven items but the fast lane was closed, behind a woman with a large cart piled high. She’d been unloading it onto the conveyor belt for a couple minutes before I wheeled into the lane behind her. As she worked I noticed her tee shirt, a muted shade of spring green with...

Got to The Center 5 min. late this a.m., but no worries, the internet had gone down, the computer wasn’t ready for me to use, and just to soften things, I’d brought along a few hat & scarf sets for Michelle to give out to folks in need, or sell in the gift shop… Turns out it was Big Wheels Tuesday,...

As I went to Thursday’s writing group I had the new story on my mind, thinking of getting class over with so I could settle into my La-Z-Boy with my crochet hook, working the pattern and thinking about story threads for “Villagers” as I worked. That’s when Linda surprised me with a bushel-sized... Sign in to see full entry.

Our Thursday group met at a raggedy start time, somewhere close to 9:30 a.m. I was a bit discombobulated because I’d just found out there would be no coffee that day. I couldn’t find the pot to brew up the usual pot for the group. The other Pat told me the pot, along with a pound of ground Folger’s... Sign in to see full entry.
