Episode V: The Arthropods Strike Back

As I mentioned, there’s been a war going on in my house for quite some time between myself and the slavering horde of ants. “I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.” And as it turns out, the problem is much larger… Read More

Strutting Time

It’s been kind of a ridiculous day all around. First was the morning visit from the exterminator.  We’re now officially losing the battle against the ants, but I’ll talk more about that tomorrow. Then our television receiver shorted out…again…. Read More

Class of 2033

Yeah, go ahead and let that one sink in… Because it just occurred to me this past Sunday before we left for brunch. Class. Of. 2033. How is that even a thing? Do you have any idea what’s supposed to happen… Read More

Aqua Block

Hey there. So, like every weekend, this one shot by in a hurry. Saturday we stayed home for most of the day and just played around the house.  I had an airport pickup to do late that evening, after… Read More

On Demand

I’m pretty good with dogs. Jib is an extraordinarily well-behaved puppy.  (Sure, he’s 9.  I still call him a puppy.)   He listens well, dutifully comes to me when I call him, he even carries the paper in for me on… Read More


Zoom goes the weekend. Although that’s always the feeling I have when I spend the majority of said weekend lounging around the house.  Weird how that somehow makes the days go by so much faster… Anyway, Saturday saw us… Read More

Boys of October

So I haven’t mentioned this very often on here (mostly because they were so damned awful last year), but we are huge Red Sox fans ’round these parts. My God, was she really this small just a year ago?… Read More
