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.

Wednesday 

Good morning! It's about 8:30, another bright sunny day on our hands, A strange post-Election Day. Things are still up in the air as far as counting votes and the race to 270 continues.. I suppose I'd prefer this news…

Tewsday 

Good morning! Just shy of nine o'clock here on Election Day. I've already voted, so the challenge today is in staying away from the news. There is that feeling of great anticipation though, like a little kid on Christmas Day.…

un-manic Monday 

Good morning! It's 8:42 this side of noon. Like many folks, that extra hour threw me off a little bit. 'Why is it dark out and it's only 5:30?"  The days get shorter, until I think December 20th. One thing…

Sunday 

Good morning! It's 9:23 this side of noon. According to Facebook, Halloween did happen last night. I left my porchlight off, just like the Convicted Sex Offenders, so I missed all the fun. Hopefully next Halloween will see us all…

Saturday 

Good morning! It's 9:33 in the a.m., another beautiful day on tap. And tonight is Halloween. I used to love Halloween as a kid, and as a younger adult taking kids on their first such adventure. The magic has been…

Friday 

Good morning! About 9:40 on this honest-to-goodness beautiful Friday. I commented earlier, when it was dismal  outside, what a wonderful day it was. A coping mechanism I picked up from a boss I had working for the State. But today…

Thursday 

Good morning! It's about 8:30 here in the best of all possible worlds. This is a little earlier than I usually post, but it was one of those nights. Woke up from a sound sleep at 0-dark-hundred to use the…
