Bite Me in Life After 60

Some of the phrases used today amuse me. Of course some I would like to take literally. But the lawsuit might not be worth it. Being charged with Battery is not one of the things on my bucket ...


Commercials irritate me. They are every where. That free program or game you loaded on your phone. Chances are it came with a disclaimer that it contains ads. Solid evidence that there is no ...


This idiom is actually a misquote of a line from the play The Mourning Bride from the year 1697. The British poet William Congreve wrote this originally as music hath charms to sooth a savage bre...


By looking at the word I would break it down to Lethal Logic. Deadly reasoning. I remember studying medical terminology a few years back. We were taught to look for a root word to aid us in le...


Just get over it. To be fair, people who have never had to deal with clinical depression are totally clueless. It is as if they think it is, pardon the pun, “All In Your Head” and by humming an...

Let's Make A Deal in Life After 60

Amusement Parks are not for me. The rides make me sick as in throwing up your insides, sick. I road a tilt-a-whirl once with a friend. The longest 5 minutes of my life and I swore if I got off...

Reincarnation in Life After 60

I’ve had many deja vu moments in my life. So many I have lost count. While the theory behind them is wide spread I still don’t know what to make of them. But this week end was more like the mo...

Irresistible in Life After 60

Something that it is so powerful that it makes you act in a certain way, and there is nothing you can do to prevent this. Sounds a lot like losing your self-control. But maybe more politically ...

Broken Road in Life After 60

Since I started down the rabbit hole yesterday with my Great Depression post, I thought I would just continue today. Why change direction? After all, this is therapy. I look back at my lif...


Both of my parents survived the Great Depression. I remember the stories they would tell of what life was like. My dad was stationed in Honolulu HI on Dec 7th, 1941. He would never talk about ...

Donkey Hotay in Life After 60

English Lit was one of my favorites in school. Some memorable works that made a difference in my life. The Ransom of Red Chief, The Adventures of Mark Twain and Tom Sawyer were among the first ...


I still remember the sound of my modem connecting with AOL. Back in the early days of the internet and email, a 56K modem was all you needed! Plug in your house phone line and the world was at ...

Vacation Lag in Life After 60

After a two week hiatus, I am back at it this morning. Well, I am back on the time clock. My biggest mistake? Failure to get up at the same time during my vacation. And this morning I paid fo...


No, that is not a political statement. I try to leave politics to the so-called experts. Our exit polls are showing a strong swing in the direction of a moral dilemma. Conscience, that st...

Famous Quotes in Life After 60

Every so often I hear a quote that I really enjoy. Usually from a movie. Sleepless In Seattle had some great lines. And here are a few. “Verbal ability is a highly overrated thing in a guy, an...

Pandora's Box in Life After 60

Oh, those crazy Greeks! Life could not have been dull when dealing with their mythology. So many gods and stories. Eros was the god of love, lust and sexual activity. According to all the Greek...


Medical terms. I have never understood why we have them. Much like the legal jargon in a contract which seems to be just double talk to protect the wrong parties from being liable for their mis...


Yeah, I know, but it’s easier to look at things from a different point of view than the, I’m waiting for Cinderella story! At least this way it shakes things up a bit, though the principle is st...


You can’t fix stupid. Actually, you can. It’s called Education, but like the proverbial horse being lead to water you can’t make them learn. My theory on the leading a horse is, you can’t lead...


I am a Meg Ryan fan. Starring opposite Tom Hanks, she is, in my opinion, at her best. And add a storyline with the absurdity that, in the end, love conquers all, then I am hooked. I am one of ...


Does anyone in your family suffer from mental illness? No, they all seem to rather enjoy it. Please understand I am not making light of those who have this illness. Full disclosure? I have it...

Lord of the flies in Life After 60

What was God thinking? Why create flies in the first place? And then why allow them on the ark? Okay, if you are anti-religious or whatever PC term you wish you might be offended by this. Tha...

Moral High Ground in Life After 60

Doing what is right as opposed to doing what would benefit one’s self. I will confess, that I don’t like being in those situations, but I find myself there. Morally I should walk away. I led w...


I have never understood why the President of the United States can talk for 30 minutes and it takes the news commentator an hour to explain to us what the President actually said. Are we not cap...
