A Credit Card Christmas

I expected activities to slow down this Christmas because of the pandemic, but think again. I noticed the frantic internal rush to spend money began around mid-November, and it reached a boiling point hours before Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday…and it hasn’t let up. The breaking of Hoover Dam would be comparable to this adrenalin… Continue reading A Credit Card Christmas


What Happened to Simple?

All I want to do is write something and post it. Is that too complicated? Well it wasn’t for several years, but suddenly it has become cumbersome, awkward, confusing, frustrating, and yes, complicated. The new WordPress block editor is driving me a bit nuttier than I have been known to be. And I want to… Continue reading What Happened to Simple?


Is it Over?

Whee, it’s over! But it isn’t. The chaos continues and we, the American citizens are left shaking our heads and our fists shouting ‘Enough already!” With both sides claiming victory when about 5 million votes separate the two, it is hard to understand how there could be this much controversy.

Leaves of Change

Fall means change and nothing shows change quite like colors in leaves. From years past I’ve pulled a couple of pictures that show the season’s beauty in southeastern Oklahoma.

Power of Humor

I’ve come to believe humor may be the best way to dismantle an overgrown ego. What bully do you know or have encountered who can stand to be mocked, laughed at or discounted by the jab of a joke? Most people who have a habit of pushing people around and belittling them are ill-equipped to… Continue reading Power of Humor
