Friday, October 7th, 2016   4:24 pm |  Category:   Humor, Life   |  4 Comments  | Author:     bio

You know how it is when you retire. You have at least a dozen things you plan to do: you will travel, take up golf, knit toques for homeless people, skydive, refinish furniture, work part time, learn Spanish, paint landscapes, volunteer, and figure out how to use a complicated camera. Stuff like that. And, you …more

Have You Ever Kissed the Blarney Stone?

Friday, August 26th, 2016   2:43 pm |  Category:   Humor, Life, Travel   |  1 Comment  | Author:     bio

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

Did you once-upon-a-time play a musical instrument?  Maybe like me, you started in elementary school with group lessons and played for years in bands and orchestras before putting the instrument away.   It was predetermined that I would play the violin since my dad bought me one at the age of five months. Yes, he …more

The Current Condition – OLS and CRS

Sunday, April 10th, 2016   4:23 pm |  Category:   Humor, Life   |  2 Comments  | Author:     bio

My current problem—at least the one I’m telling you about today—has been with me a couple of years. I didn’t know how to deal with it. I couldn’t find proper “do-it-yourself” improvement books about it. My husband just didn’t want to talk about it. So, I’ll subject you to it. Perhaps you have experienced these …more

It wasn’t that long ago that I found out I owned a prostate. Now, my doctor tells me, I have a colon.   I was sitting in his office discussing some test results, when he said, “I saw something I didn’t like in your stool sample.” It’s hard to keep a straight face when someone …more

Say What? Braces? At My Age?

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015   10:07 am |  Category:   Health, Humor   |  1 Comment  | Author:     bio

One of the things about aging no one ever mentions is the inevitable transmigration of one’s teeth. For the last 50 years or so, my teeth have been slowly but surely jockeying for position. A position, I might add, they have absolutely no business being in.   That’s because my teeth are unrealistic. They are …more

Retirement–Time for Television

Thursday, April 30th, 2015   7:25 pm |  Category:   Humor, Life   |  Add Comment  | Author:     bio

Who knew television viewing would change with retirement? I could just write, “We now have high definition TV–HDTV! And a streaming device!” But you’d never know about the radical change, the loss my father-in-law “Muns” suffered or TV service providers’ weather reports.   Pre-Retirement TV   Before we retired, my wife Vicki and I had …more
