We've all been there. (Whether we admit it or not.) Someone cuts you off in traffic. Or you get stuck behind the person who thinks the speed limit is a friendly suggestion, as they proceed to drive 20 miles an hour below it. Getting angry about it just ain't worth it! You see the news … Continue reading Anger Management
Short and sweet
This weekend I get to drive 35 miles one way, over 2 mountain passes to do my quarterly stock up shopping at the closest Super Walmart. It is usually an all day ordeal—driving, filling two carts, loading the car, driving, unloading the car, putting all the stuff away.So this week's post is going to be … Continue reading Short and sweet
How did I not see that?
I love them! I absolutely love them! Those “aha” moments that make you wonder how you did not see that before. You know, like chocolate is scrumptious! Like it doesn't matter that it is 16 degrees below zero, ice cream is still a yummy, satisfying snack! Like shoveling snow is a great workout! Well, not … Continue reading How did I not see that?
I got a telemarketer who called my office so good the other day! He started reading from his script, very monotone in his speech, and then asked if the owner was there. I replied, “Yes I am, and I did the job exactly as you told me to, but there's blood everywhere! What do you … Continue reading Dead weight
I'm sure you can relate. You're having one of “those” days. Everything is coming at you from every angle, at the exact same time, and you are just trying to breathe.

Well, it's that time of year again, where we in the United States celebrate another beloved holiday season, daylight savings time! Where we set our clocks back one hour. Where the days are increasingly darker for longer. Where the folks who suffer from S.A.D. (Seasonal Affective Disorder) pull out their lights to help them with … Continue reading Doldrums
Basic life support
As someone pushing just north of 60 years old, I have come to realize that I need to make the most of each and every day. The months and years are moving at a faster speed and I should not waste a precious minute. So here's a little humor first. You’re so old that I … Continue reading Basic life support
Here in Colorado, kids are starting to go back to school. So I thought this would be a great time for us to brush up on our English grammar. And it will be short and sweet. A pronoun is any of a small set of words (such as I, she, he, you, it, we, or … Continue reading Grammar Lesson
Busting my chops
I just love how my brain makes connections between things. It gives me ideas for these posts. I also love how a single phrase can have more than one meaning. In a recent message, my pastor told us how you can remember the order of the small epistles in the Bible. Gentiles Eat Pork Chops, … Continue reading Busting my chops
Stand Your ground
Someone broke into my house last night. I did not have to shoot them though. I just pointed the laser sight on their head, and my three cats did the rest.No, this did not really happen to me. But it sure makes for an interesting visual!My favorite part of the NRA magazine is the Armed … Continue reading Stand Your ground
