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

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?

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

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

I Almost Felt Guilty

Several years ago I decided to celebrate my retirement with a new car. My wife and I had been sharing one, and I’d hesitated to purchase another for my exclusive use because we lived downtown and parking was difficult. Our house was nearly a hundred years old with a narrow garage carved out of the …more

Why We Go South – Again

We’re here!   The bags have been unpacked, the clothes put away and the neighbors sufficiently greeted and acknowledged. The coverings have been taken off the furniture and the cable TV service has been restored. All is ready for another six months. We are back in Arizona for the winter.   This will be our …more
