Safe Zone

When I was just a kid, maybe 4 or 5 years old, my mother would go to bingo at the local church hall most Friday nights. She would leave me in the care of a neighbor down the street, an older woman named Mrs. Cannon. Mrs. Cannon had an older son named Joey, in his …

Random Stuff

The latest headlines in the news speak to the urgent need to push the COVID vaccine out much more quickly than has been done up to now, including the addition of those 65 and older and those who have underlying issues. Folks like me. I’m fine with that, and I look forward to getting the …

My favorite tools

One of the most useful tools in my kit is Google’s Keep. It is the handiest thing ever to capture ideas or thoughts, no matter where you are or what you’re doing. I generally use the Keep app on my phone to take down an idea, a thought, a quote or whatever, and then I …

Huh?

I’ve spent the last 24 hours wondering… how in hell did he do that? Let’s clarify. Yesterday morning, at 8:15 or so, my orthopedic surgeon did this for me: It seems I’d managed to put a few tears into the meniscus on my left knee some time ago, which were worsening as old age and …

Birding…

My wife and I are avid photographers and often go to the shore to take photos when the weather is good. One thing you can count on while walking the Atlantic shoreline is gulls. They are everywhere! And what better than a presence hiding in plain sight to seed a story idea? This photo of …

At the eleventh hour, I realized that one of the stories in the collection had been submitted to the …

As my wife and I watched the evening news tonight, the anchor wished viewers a good start to the new year. I smiled at my wife and said, “If you’re wishing a happy new year to anyone today, you’re already off to a good start. It means you survived 2020!” She agreed. We were very …

2020

Henry looks tired, doesn’t he? After all, he’s had the busiest year in decades, so I can see where he’d feel a little tuckered out. I sure would if I’d wreaked as much havoc as he has! I guess we can only hope for massive improvement in 2021. I would say it can’t possibly get …

Op Ed

Not the sort of thing I generally choose to write about in these posts, but I felt compelled to vent. In a page right out of the Twitter playbook, news outlets seem to be taking delight in using their most somber tones to deliver the news that a Boston doctor had a severe allergic reaction …

Tis The Season

As 2020 progressed and forever redefined insanity, I wondered if we’d actually make it through to the holiday celebrations at the end of the year, and yet… here we are. Since we’ve made it, I’d like to wish all that read this a Merry Christmas and a Happy (and BETTER) new year. Just to be …
