May 29, 2021 – Pinball Machine

Wow! Yesterday was a real humdinger! I spent the majority of it haphazardly running from one room in my house to the next, ping-ping-ping, just like one of those metal balls in a Pinball machine, trying to gather up bits of ‘this and that’ to take along on my trip. I think I ended upContinue reading “May 29, 2021 – Pinball Machine”

May 25, 2021 – The Number Three

What is it about the number three? Nearly every night/morning, before I’m able to completely relax, close my eyes, and go to sleep, I gaze over at the digital clock on my nightstand, dismayed to see the number ‘three’ once again staring back at me. “Again?!” I think to myself. Why not 12 or 1Continue reading “May 25, 2021 – The Number Three”

May 17, 2021 – Trouble in Paradise

My family didn’t have the means to ownContinue reading “May 15, 2021 – Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

April 19, 2021 – Hawaiian Adventures

I consider myself very fortunate. I’ve had the opportunity to travel to many places over my lifetime. When I was a kid, I’d heard about Hawaii and yearned to go there someday. I grew up in a location where if you had to place a bet on the weather, if you bet on ‘rain’, you’dContinue reading “April 19, 2021 – Hawaiian Adventures”

February 25, 2021 – Big Blue Marble (Part One)

If you were alive between the years of 1974 – 1983 and a fan of PBS, you might have come across the TV show ‘Big Blue Marble’. I was a big fan and watched it every week it was broadcast (with the exception of the 4 years we didn’t actually have a TV after myContinue reading “February 25, 2021 – Big Blue Marble (Part One)”
