UNDER THE BOARDWALK

UNDER THE BOARDWALK

Here are we all, in the midst of a world of chaos. Living with the unknown, with no view of what lies ahead. Like still water our current existence reflects only what is visible in the present. However, if we look under the boardwalk, where the shadows allow us to see below the surface, we…

LET’S FLATTEN THE CURVE

LET’S FLATTEN THE CURVE

When they talk about flattening the curve, obviously they are not talking about an expanding waistline. Nevertheless, I have taken it to heart. A sign, as it were. I am working toward leveling out my body measurements … sort of flatlining my dimensions. I figure if I eat enough, my curves will be flattened, and there…

CARONA SPRING

CARONA SPRING

  Pictured here are we all … socially isolated in the midst of an infestation of splodges … clear evidence of the carona-viral-disgusting-infectious-disease-pandemic.

I LEFT IT RIGHT

I LEFT IT RIGHT

Just a heads up … It turns out that as a toddler, I missed the lesson on left and right. As a result … do not act upon any spontaneous directions you might receive from me, unless those directions are reinforced with hand signals, such as tapping on the passenger window while yelling, “Take the…

GLOSSARY OF CATS

GLOSSARY OF CATS

For you dog people this really has nothing to do with the feline that wanders through your neighborhood driving your canine protector crazy by sitting all smug and in-your-face just out of reach on a fencepost or tree branch. This is more about the actual word CAT and how it randomly appears in our language.…

Hello 2020

Hello 2020

Hello nice to meet you.  I know you are really new at this, and the learning curve is pretty steep, not to mention all the palaver that goes with ringing in the new year  … remembering to write 2020 rather than 2019,  … squirreling away all the old unread papers,  … corralling all the relevant…
