Oh no! It's Monday! 

Good morning! 8:58 in the a.m., a beautiful sunny day we should've had yesterday, for the benefit of those still in the workforce. Once you retire, the days are much more "modular". As far as I'm concerned, it's still Sunday.…

Sunday 

Good morning! Just now 11 o'clock on this steadily improving Sunday. I just wrote something in here an hour ago, which somehow got swallowed up when I went to post. Grrrr..All you can do is start over. But an hour…

Saturday 

Good morning! It's 9:43 on this dismal Saturday the 14th. We got what should've been yesterday's weather today. My brother was born on a Friday the 13th, reportedly during an electrical storm. If he were a blues artist, he could…

Friday the 13th 

Good morning! It's nine-twenty on this Friday the 13th. The quintessential Unlucky Day. Its origin goes back to the Last Supper, that 13th guest. I did find one amusing bit of information though:

The Thirteen Club 

In the late-19th century…

Thursday 

Good morning! Just shy of nine on another knocko day. Already made a dent in that first cup of Morning Joe. Unlike working days, where coffee consumption was often an all-day affair. These days I just fix one pot in…

Mittwoch 

Guten morgen! Just coming on 9 o'clock on this Hump Day. Considerably nippier but still bright and sunny- which, to me, trumps a warmer but darker day. My cat and I are both at our "battle stations"- me on the…

Toozday 

Good morning! Just after nine on this overcast Tuesday. And here comes Mr Sun. So much for my prognostications. Maybe we'll get just a little more of that Indian Summer before we begin our final descent. Back to overcast. Well…

un-manic Monday 

Good afternoon! It's about 1:20 on this variable Monday. Just came from getting my eyes checked. I had cataract surgery back in 2011, and have checked in every year since. Always a bit of uneasiness going in(I'm a bit of…

Sunday 

Good morning! About 9:30 on this beautiful Sunday. Yesterday was a pretty emotion-packed day. People were either rejoicing or lamenting our new President and Vice-President. I was, and am one of the celebrators. As far as I'm concerned, he won…

Saturday 

Good morning! It's about 8:40 in the a.m. on a Saturday that just can't be beat. Indian Summer is my favorite season-within-a-season. Glad it's still sticking around. We'll begin our descent into Winter soon enough. 

Music news. First off,…

Friday 

Good morning! It's 8:40 this side of noon,. In bed at 11, up around 7. Geezer hours. Having been a lifelong night owl, it feels a little strange. But that just goes with advancing age I guess. I do like…

Thursday 

Good morning! It's 8;25 in the a.m. where I'm sitting. More Indian Summer before the weather really takes a nosedive.I wish it could just stay like this until next March. Make hay while the sun still shines, I guess.
