The thought of a new normal never occurred to me before. It happens all the time though. Usually at a gradual incline but normal never actually exists. Continue reading
I am trying to help my dad cut the cord to cable and move to Roku. It’s not an easy transition since he is familiar with cable and all of its schedules and shows. But cable is dying away so he is about to have no choice. I thought for sure if I enticed him with a John Wayne movie he would buy into the streaming television choice. What I learned that night though is not all John Wayne movies are created equal. His early work are unintentional comedies as he outgrew Marion Morrison and perfected becoming, well, John Wayne.Continue reading
Remember this beauty tag line from the 80’s?
”I don’t intend to grow old gracefully. I intend to fight it every step of the way.”Continue reading
Here is my latest pondering: is it winter or old age that is making me cranky? I hope it’s the former but fear it’s the latter since I’m cranky year round these days.

My nephew started it for him and then left before he could troubleshoot some problems. Enter me. After promising dad his iPad would be simple to use since he already used an iPhone I had to figure out why it was, in fact, not as simple to use as we promised. Most of his apps transferred from his phone with no problem except his contacts. His contact list on his iPad was blank. Since the actual tech experts were nowhere near, I had to step up the plate and figure out the problem. What happened to his contact list?
I know we are technically 13 days into official winter (but who’s counting?).
Me! I am counting. Continue reading
I noticed him texting during the meeting and afterward teased him about it.
“You texted?” I asked in a judgy-sort of way.
He answered affirmatively. I mean, how else could he reply since I had been sitting right next to me when he did it. Continue reading
Here’s a thought for you.
We all know we can’t take anything with us when we die. Despite cultural legends of burials filled with items for the next life, which archaeologists appreciate, we leave our belongings behind. I’ll do you one better. Outwardly, we really carry nothing with us – except the clothes on our back – from day to day. Continue reading
