Rita’s Advice Works!

Rita’s advice works! I asked her this morning, as we walked around a long block (for the first time at last), what to do about all the tent caterpillars crawling over everything in my backyard. I have to be careful to brush away the bugs before I grasp a garden spade or hoe, else I’ll […]


Shirley’s Birthday BBQ

I got a late invitation to my friend Shirley’s Birthday BBQ on Saturday at noon. Well, I got a call on Friday night that Shirley had asked that I be invited too. I had planned a full day of things to do at home, but for Shirley – sure, I’d make time to attend the […]

Reviving Exercise Habits

Yes, I’m reviving exercise habits after a winter of sitting too much. All through the winter I’ve noticed that I was gaining a pound or two nearly every week. Just knowing where that can lead got me a bit worried. But all the dieting tricks weren’t helping. That bout with shingles set me back considerably […]


My Wee Yard Sale Results

It was a gloriously sunny day. I was up at 6 and by 7 was setting up my make-shift tables with stacking stools, boxes and wide boards. My stock was almost all in the front porch, so I didn’t have to carry the boxes and things far, and I made a point of trying not […]
