Homeward Bound 

Good morning! It's 8:33 on this not-quite-cloudy-but-not-quite-sunny-either Tuesday. Same old same old: birds singing, cat dozing in chair(and probably thinking about eating one of them), me with that first cup of coffee just starting to wake up. Lots of dreaming…

un-manic Monday 

Good morning! It's 9:30 here in the best of all possible worlds. Nice and dark and cloudy, just like I like it. NOT! But everything else is okay. The birds are singing, my cat is napping in the chair next…

The Robin Hood of Toilet Paper. 

 Good morning! It's just straight-up nine o'clock on this beautiful Sunday. Got that first cup of Purpose to my right and a dozing cat to my left. Unlike her late sister, she won't jump in my lap, but she'll sit…

Saturday 

 Good morning! It's about 10 of nine on this overcast Saturday. In about two hours, I pick up a grocery order from Hy-vee. I didn't get enough of what I needed, and have another order to pick up this coming…

Friday 

Good morning! Just comin' on 8 o'clock on this can't-make'up-its-mind Friday..A clouds n' sun affair today. The days are rough enough by themselves right now.  They really need to all be sunny at this point. C'mon now..

This is still…

Thor's Day 

 Good morning! It's just after 8, a little earlier than I'm usually here. Could've used another hour of sawing logs, but got enough sleep to fuel me. This is where coffee does its magic. One pot of coffee generally yields…

April Fool's Day 

Good morning! 9:53 on this sunny Hump Day. Just called my brother, who is home and enjoying some vacation time, to make sure he had enough TP. It seems to be a precious commodity right now(damn hoarders!).. Going to the…

Tepid Tuesday 

Good morning! It's 9;26 on this partly sunny Tuesday. Everything's in place. The hibernation continues. Last night I signed up with Hy-vee, and will be picking up my groceries from now on, starting with this Saturday. Still getting my meds…

A beautiful day for a change 

Good morning! It's just now 9 o'clock on this "uncharacteristically" sunny Monday. The birds are singing, my cat is in the chair to my left purring(and she'd purr even more if she could catch one of them!), my first cup…

Sunday, that fun day 

Good morning! It's about 9:15 on this dismal Sunday. Yesterday we had the threat of Tornadoes here in MIddle America, as well as the ongoing Pandemic. I thought of my ex-wife, who used to worry about weather conditions(even if they…

Lockdown 

Good morning! About 9;40 on this rainy Saturday. Yes, life sucks right now and so does the weather. Staying in as much as humanly possible. As far as supplies, I've got everything in abundance except for bread, so I can't…

Freaky Friday  

Good morning! Just a shade after nine. Another grim-looking day out there but the birds are singing. I don't hear Jerome Howard this morning(my nyuknyuknyuk songbird)but there are other tune-wielding birds taking his place. No, wait, there he is! Okay,…
