My Next Cataract Surgery

The date for my next cataract surgery came in the mail on Friday. I’m gearing up for it on July 28th. I’m trying to get some publishing projects done before then, because once that right eye can see I will be able to look way over there to those tree tops, but close up work […]


Selling Socks!

My most current excitement is the selling of socks. You recall, I’ve been mentioning those wellness socks that have special weaving to apply pressure on certain points of your feet to improve your stability, strength, and energy. Yesterday was a red letter day for me, as Rita, my walking friend was ready to place an […]


July 4, 2017, What's New! Selling Socks
An Act of Generosity

What else can possibly be new and exciting compared to bright clear vision? Hm.-m…..? Oh yes, I wanted to tell you about an answer to prayer on Thursday. I experienced God’s generosity to me that day in an unusual way. I had a number of odd jobs around my house that needed a handyman with […]

I found just 3 tent caterpillars last night […]


Shirley’s Birthday BBQ

Insects Spoiling My Happiness

Perhaps you’ve heard? Tent caterpillars are back! I’ve heard about them before, but I don’t think I’ve ever had to deal with them personally. This year I do! You’ll notice that this looks like two American Elms but they have just one root. (I was ready to have it taken down last fall, but it […]


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 […]
