.... in a manner of speaking.
I had a fun conversation with Canadians.
I have another hopefully fun conversation ahead with granddaughter Kate.
I told my gasman jokes twice once to gasmen and I ...
… best movie I’ve seen in a long time. Of course I almost never watch movies but that doesn’t matter much.
Keep your eyes open for the BMW porn.
It’s a Roman Polanski movie from around 2010 - ...
This gave me great pleasure.
I do not expect ANYONE to waste the time to experience - Amis, McEwan and Rushdie but I wants to let people know that they exist and this video exists. We all like ...
I meant to write yesterday. The month is my favorite unit of time. Not too long, not too short. You can do things in a month .... and then if you don’t do them, you have another month to try...
This is one of my old Photobucket pictures. I think I might have Photobucket back. For $29.99 a year - already paid.
Has anyone else heard from them lately?
I’ll put this here because no one cares what I do here.
What do you think though - what would happen if I posted it on Facebook? Where my friends and neighbors and relatives all live?
DT and I finally have something in common. I am not a fan of MM either and I too wish Harry luck - BUT - what the ex-royal couple said does not endorse Biden. It could just as well be interpr...
‘beamer and beater alike’ = second best phrase this morning.
First was ‘rough hewn locals’.
I’m beginning to feel a little like I did about Open Diary.
God, we need some creativity around he...
Not a bad one. Edgy maybe. My life feels full right now. I have things to say and I think I might be able to sit still long enough to say at least some of them.
Thank you for reading ab...
I visited my brother’s grave yesterday - first time since his ashes were buried in the Minnesota Veterans Cemetery in Preston. It’s a new cemetery and it’s beautiful. The stone work was done...
Oh my god - not another list!!!??
Here goes —
I ate a whole Amish apple pie in the last 24 hours. Half in daylight, half in dark. It was quite tasty - made with fresh apples, I bel...
Not transubstantiation, but petrichor, defined at the end.

I’m stealing for you… but it’s s...
One too many syllables for the first line of an haiku.
One too few for the middle line.
Doesn’t work for the last line either.
Feel free to argue with me about whether haiku deserves ‘a’ or ...
But take a look and listen at this. It’s Bob Crosby’s band. He was Bing’s little brother and pretty good in his own right. The song Bing Noise in Winnetka came to my mind when I saw one of ...
Look at the hairlines
I’ll be back in a bit.
Look at this.
It’s only 27 seconds… Listen too. Let it run a couple times. It gets better with repetition.
Is it Whitney?
.....my mama said....
…too bad they have to grow up.
Oh heck. I was going to give you Mrs. Biden for equal time, but then I found this and it was charming as heck.
Note - Dave plays the same number game with both ...
No news tonight. Uncomfortable feeling. I’ll write tomorrow.
Is 750 too many words? I’m sure entries can be written with fewer words. Good ones, insightful ones, ones that comfort both writer and reader. In the long run, it probably doesn’t matter. We...

I was out on the deck this morning for sunrise. Troubl...
Not sure if you can get there or not but it’s a lot of fun. IMHO.
Rater likes exposed brick, plants, lit lamps, and art.
Saturday morning. Waiting for Joana to get up. Pills on her plate. Cereal bowl and spoon, half a banana, a graham cracker. When she gets up I will mix a Carnation Instant Breakfast and pou...
