OK, Now I’m Over It…Thank you Humidity

June 10, 2021

At the beginning of a new romance, everything’s dreamy until reality sets in and you start noticing things. You know, like the noise he makes when he eats, or the dishes he never does, or the make up she gets on the steering wheel, or her incessant talking on the phone…need I go on? Western Pennsylvania is beautiful and would be perfect if it wasn’t for the humidity.…

Wanna Win a Dinner Worth $250?

May 19, 2021

As the daughter of a woman who entered every possible contest, and won a few, I have weak moments. So when a friend, who works for San Marzano tomatoes, asked if I would post a contest in my blog so that (potentially) one of my lucky readers might win a dinner at a local restaurant valued at $250 dollars, I said, "Heck yeah!" …

I’m Baa-aak

May 16, 2021

Lyle Lovett’s Pontiac brought us together, but I think my favorite moment was when we bonded over "Let’s Get Excited" by the Pointer Sisters. I was impressed and only somewhat concerned that Andy knew all the words, but we really belted it out.…

Can You Ever be Too Thankful?

December 31, 2020

Wow, what a December. After much debate, stress, confining ourselves to the same five rooms in our respective homes for weeks, Covid tests, and a very long drive for my daughter, I got to see two of my three kids for the holidays. When my daughter finally got here, we greeted each other with what may go down in history as the longest, most emotional hug we’ve ever…

VOTE! It’s Safe and Easy

October 7, 2020

I’m at my dining room table staring my mail in ballot. I like the fact that I can vote with hair conditioner on, under an electric heating cap, looking like an alien in a bad 1950s Sci-fi movie. I’d share the image, but am too vain to give you that kind of belly laugh right now. I usually vote in person because my parents did, and took great…

2020 – It’s all About Waiting

September 16, 2020

I think I might finally be getting the hang of this year – it’s all about waiting. We waited to see what Covid would bring. Then we waited to see if our jobs would come back. Then we waited to see if the protests would really bring about change. We continued waiting to see what Covid would bring after Memorial Day, the Fourth of July and Labor Day.…

A Cure for the Covid Grumps

August 29, 2020

I woke up in a very crabby mood today, in spite of a perfect Los Angeles day with deep blue skies and an actual cool breeze. Maybe it was weeks of 100 degree temperatures, plus two political conventions back to back. Or maybe it’s living alone during five months of furlough with no discernible end in sight. Either way, my grumpiness wasn’t lifting. My usual ventees weren’t available…
