That Kind Of Day

June 19, 2014

When it rains, it pours.  And even when it doesn’t, it does. Yesterday, I heard the unfortunate news that a childhood friend had succumbed to Esophageal Cancer.  We visited him in February in Southern California.  His funeral is this Saturday and several of us, his classmates from our Elementary School, are carpooling to the funeral […]

Heathens Conversate

April 20, 2014

Picking up my Little Honey Bunch from BART on Friday, I ask how his trip was. Him:  There was hardly anyone on the train. I guess because it’s Good Friday. Me (this is easier than using quotation marks and what not):  What is Good Friday again? Him:   I don’t know. You’re the one who […]

Random Musings

April 17, 2014

My mother died on 4/20. Big deal being made of 420 this year. My brother died on 5/11. Mother’s Day is 5/11 this year.  And today is my baby brother’s birthday. Happy Birthday, Little! That’s all. Just a random musing.

Lame Blogger

December 27, 2013

So, I just realized that I had a bunch of comments to approve from some posts.  I apologize for being a #lameblogger and not checking and approving!  On the other hand, I realized many of the comments were spam. About 2% made sense, with proper grammar and punctuation.  However, the majority seemed to be translated […]

(Moved from main site for comments ability.) I need your input. Is it appropriate to let your 16 year old daughter (who you trust) stay at her 19 year old boyfriend’s (who you trust) house, “with his parents there as chaperones”, even though you have never met them and they deleted you from Facebook, because […]

Paris Observations Part II

July 12, 2013

It is actually 8:54 am on Saturday, 7/13, not 11:55 pm on Friday French women don’t believe in boob holders, even though some should For the love of Pete, every American, please send a stick of deodorant to your fellow Frenchmen What the French lack in deodorant, they make up for in diligence in using […]

Paris Observations

July 11, 2013

Women don’t wear makeup I have not come across any mean, snooty Frenchness.  Everyone has been kind and helpful. Seriously, DOES anyone in this country own deodorant? The ham and eggs taste like farm. The French only make sunny side up eggs. A lemonade is a Sprite. You take your life in your hands crossing […]

Vacation Adventures

July 6, 2013

Once upon a time, my Little Honey Bunch went on vacation to Tahiti only to be stuck in a monsoon (typhoon – whatever – something bad).  He spent 5 days of the week holed up so as not to be swept away. On our very first trip to Eagle Lake, we were in Old Blue […]

Giving up alcoholic beverages is TOTALLY overrated.  It’s been three days since I’ve had a drop of liquor.  I’ve eaten less, exercised like a fiend (three back to back Zumba classes yesterday), I haven’t been able to sleep, AND…I  HAVE GAINED WEIGHT! 6:00 PM, I can’t wait to see you, gin and tonic in hand!

June 24, 2013

I can’t believe it’s been about 2 1/2 years since I last tried to quit drinking alcohol during the week (post here)!  Today, I just didn’t drink.  No gin and tonics, no wine with dinner.  I expect to be down 5 pounds tomorrow morning.  OK, maybe by the end of the week.  If this streak […]
