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

“Days of Our Lives” won the daytime Emmy for best daytime drama, just as I was about to poke fun at the never ending recycling of plot lines, the unreal situations and patterns of the characters. But it must be serving a purpose if the show has been on the air for 50 years. There’s a concept in... Sign in to see full entry.

I was all hyped up to do a run-down of the daytime soap opera “Days of Our Lives” story line and characters, but something more interesting came up. My kids. Half of them. Dinner. I got a message from daughter Lorrie, my firstborn, that she and Mike were going to be in town Saturday and would like... Sign in to see full entry.

It’s been too cold, rainy, snowy, just plain miserable to do yard work outdoors for the entire month of March and the first 25 days of April. But, after three sunny days in a row, I finally took the snow shovel off the front porch and hung it on its hook in the garage. Here in beautiful downtown... Sign in to see full entry.

Once upon a time in the 70s, as I sat at a corner table in the break room, working out of the office to get away from the phone and the constant interruptions, several women come into the room, mid- conversation. I was at the time enrolled in a couple classes, and one of the women was Betty R., my... Sign in to see full entry.

Everything old is new again… I was dusting objects on my bookcase yesterday – don’t look so surprised, I did manage to find my duster. Front and center on that spot is a Remington portable typewriter, made in 1929. Yes, it still works, although last time I tried to replace the ribbon I had to buy... Sign in to see full entry.

I ran on autopilot yesterday, outwardly ordinary in my jeans and tunic, answering only 3 calls at The Center – perhaps a record low number for any shift I’ve ever pulled there. Abdel brought a book for me to look at. It was titled “Funny in Farsi,” and was written by a woman with a gift for good... Sign in to see full entry.

It seems the sci fi writers’ paranoia that robots would one day take control of humanity had some basis in fact. Now, in addition to having Alexa and the others turn on the TV and look up facts online, we’ve got robots who will not only clean our carpets, they’ll make a Google map of our floor plan...

Went to lunch with the boys on Sunday, and then they came over to the house for coffee talk afterward. We talked about the upcoming move, where I’m to relocate to an active senior community when an apartment becomes available, the yard sale to get rid of hand tools and furniture that won’t be moving...

It’s my belief that sooner or later every individual is forced by circumstance to walk through fire. We face desperation, deceit, unfairness, abuse, critical illness (both physical and mental) among our close family or tribe. If we’re lucky it’s only about money. Poverty is cruel, it can alter our... Sign in to see full entry.

Some time back another volunteer at The Center named Pat asked me if I was working on a writing project these days, and I said yes. She’s the Thursday gal, covers the desk during the time our WYOS group meets to cuss and discuss and write a page or two. She said she’d like to see it. (Big mistake,... Sign in to see full entry.
