Fragile Beings

Why are our heroes such fragile beings? I want my heroes to be strong and kind, Honest and moral. Not just handsome Or beautiful with more ego than sense. Why are our heroes such fragile beings With flaws of omission and commission? Politics and business, religion and arts Draw those with more ego than sense.… Continue reading Fragile Beings

In Case You Wanted to Know….

Here are a few historical facts that you may find interesting but probably not useful. Since a friend of mine received them from a friend of hers who received them from a friend, who copied them from the Internet, I’m certain they are true. Early aircraft throttles had a ball on the end of it,… Continue reading In Case You Wanted to Know….

Sick, Ill, Flu, Under The Weather?

Yep, I’m slowly recovering from what I’m guessing is a heavy dose of the flu. That means I’ve been feeling sick, ill, not well, or as some would say, I’m feeling ‘under the weather’. Now exactly what does that mean? ‘Under the weather’? Really? I have to wonder where that term originated. I’ve been conjuring up mental images of what… Continue reading Sick, Ill, Flu, Under The Weather?

I’ve been thinking (and that is a dangerous thing) about this drive we seem to have as a nation to work out…as in exercising (eating could also be in that category). I’m not certain if we all want to lose weight, improve our health, look better, catch up on local gossip, flirt with someone, or… Continue reading Was This Addiction? Oh No, It Was Running.

Marching Into History

As you read this, I’m on my way to Washington D.C. to lend my presence, support, voice, and pink pussy hat to the Women’s March on Washington scheduled for Saturday January 21. My desire to march is because I think this change in our government’s leadership is history-making. No matter which side of the political divide… Continue reading Marching Into History

Ain’t Snow Wonderful?

With all the snowfalls in the past few weeks, people are talking fondly about going skiing. But me? I just shudder with dread at the thought. You see, my last experience on the slopes was memorable—exciting and memorable. It was Christmas Eve, on the slopes overlooking beautiful Lake Tahoe, my first trip down the mountain,… Continue reading Ain’t Snow Wonderful?

Garden Cats…and Ol’ Blue

I’ve just discovered Dutch Goes the Photo blog and the weekly Tuesday Photo Challenge. This week’s challenge is ‘Animals’, so I decided to feature some cats I found on my recent visit to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. I know…maybe not the animals you had in mind, but you said to have fun. Momma Cat watches… Continue reading Garden Cats…and Ol’ Blue
