Just got through driving nearly a thousand miles. It was a long journey over remote desert and isolated countryside. It’s a trip we take every spring and fall. Being a snowbird requires it.   On the road there is a lot of time to think. Long stretches of bleak landscape and miles of open road …more

When I was a little boy my hero was Mickey Mantle.   In those days, CBS owned the New York Yankees and the only game on TV was the Saturday Game of the Week featuring the Yankees and whatever hapless team they might be playing at the time.   Whenever I could, I would spend …more

Christmas has come and gone. The presents have long been stored away in a closet or taken back to the store and returned. The last of the Christmas cookies and candy have disappeared and the decorations are safe in their boxes for another year.   While it is already well into January as I write …more

There was a time when I owned nothing that started with the letter “I”.   My first actual iPhone sighting happened innocently enough at a sporting goods store some years ago. While I stopped to look at some over-sized fish in the aquarium which was located in the center of the store, a movement to …more

I first met him at the monthly potluck.   He was pleasant and affable, willing to engage in social conversation at the drop of a hat. My first impression of him was one of warmth and friendliness. I could tell in just talking to him for a few minutes that this was someone with whom …more

My legs were aching as I trudged up the slippery stone steps.   The enclosed spiral staircase, dank and claustrophobic, ascended one-hundred and twenty steps up to the top of the ancient castle. It was proving to be more of a challenge than I had anticipated.   Occasionally I would thankfully step aside and lean …more

One thing about retirement is that it gives you a lot of time. Suddenly you have to come up with something to occupy yourself during the hours and hours of those long retirement days.   For some it’s easy. They just transition into retirement by throwing themselves into a lifelong hobby which they could only …more
