I was reading thru some things today and came across that. It spoke to me.

First, I c... Read more
...so I said to Himself "I'm hungry all the time. I mean, ALL the time. It's like low-level noise in the background: it's always there, I just don't always acknowledge it.
"Take right now, for example. It's only been a couple of hours since... Read more
Dunno if that's good or bad. We tend to have quiet weekends - is that a sign of old fogeyism? Used to be that Friday and Saturday nights were for going out, but that long since went by the boards - by choice. I like my routine, and that means ge... Read more
Well, you know, ain't that always the case?
Today was mostly doubled-up housework. This weekend is a race weekend, and as Himself will be parked on the sofa for a couple hours tomorrow and hours and hours (lol) on Sunday, and since I like t... Read more
...outta ideas, outta time, just plain outta.
Over the course of my checkered career I've worked at a couple of newspapers - nothing fancy, just hometown dailies.

What needs doing is the result of years of neglect. Oh, I don't mean to ... Read more
Got the grocery list made up, went to two - count 'em, two - different supermarkets. Got home just in time to fix lunch. Did that - an hour's break - and off to the doctor to get (finally) the report about the knee x-ray.
It shows nothing. ... Read more
Well, it's not really about Sunday morning, exactly. When I sat down here to do a blog, Spanky and Our Gang's (the group, that is, not the old B&W comedy shorts) old song came into my head. Remember them?
Anyway, this will be a short one. ... Read more

Well, we went to Lytham - St Anne in search of seashore, plus Blackpool for the Illuminations. But late back, so it will all have to wait till tomorrow, complete with pix.
Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are--!
I didn't find any trouble... er, I mean, mischief, to get into today. Tomorrow is a fair promise, tho. The weather is supposed to be glorious, warm and sunny, so we're off in search of a beach.
Early night tonight, as tomorrow's a busy day ... Read more
'CROY-so eee COOM-ree' - welcome to Wales.
...so I said to Himself 'It's a beautiful morning. The sky is blue, the temps are forecast to be perhaps as high as the upper 70s. What say we go to a beach for me to dip my toes in the water?'
