I Finally Caught the ‘Vid

Hard to believe since I’m triple vaccinated and wear my mask so much and avoid dining indoors in restaurants I contracted COVID but lo and behold I sure did. I’m pretty sure I got it from the Middle school where I volunteered to be a Proctor for 2 days in a row. What’s it like?Continue reading “I Finally Caught the ‘Vid”

Earth Day

Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22. When I was a kid I was never specifically told WHY we have an earth day. I know now that in spring of 1970, Senator Gaylord Nelson created Earth Day as a way to force the issue of protecting the environment, restoring damage ecosystems and to encourage living aContinue reading “Earth Day”

Cruise Travel Is Back!

Bikers vs Hikers

Today my youngest and I went tromping through the “woods” which is not much more than a patch of trees that are not developed. It is supposedly a protected tree area. It is attached to our subdivision and very convenient to walk to. As we were exploring we came upon this sign: This took meContinue reading “Bikers vs Hikers”

Why Is Life So Hard?

Life can be so very, very good sometimes. Other times it just feels like you got the bad end of a “deal”. There are plenty of reasons why people’s lives are so hard, unfortunately.
