The Golf Lesson (or Lessons from Golf)

I don’t mean to deceive.  It’s not my fault if people assume that I’m athletic.  I certainly don’t encourage this.   I never discuss sports, my scores, my best game ever.  Not even how the team I was on always won at Color War.  (That would really be deceitful, since I never went to camp.) So

Nook, Book or Kindle?

Once upon a time, not too long ago, there was just The Book.  No, not THAT book, but a book.  You remember.  Actual printed pages encased between two covers.  And the only decision to be made was whether to buy the hard cover edition or wait for the cheaper, lighter weight paperback version. Then along

Lord, Won’t You Buy Me A Mercedes Benz….

It is October, and adhering to the biannual rhythm of our recent life, we have returned to Florida.   The flight fortunately was uneventful, and we arrived, as scheduled, on the same Saturday on which we boarded the plane.  The dogs arrived on Sunday, driven from Connecticut by their faithful friend and chauffeur, Kevin.  After unpacking

How To Disturb The Peace

Looking over the kitchen counter, I can see my husband.  He is in the living room, sitting in his favorite chair, reading the newspaper, and leisurely enjoying his second cup of coffee.  It is early morning, and he’s still in his pjs, bath robe and slippers.  It is one of those days when he doesn’t

Alternate Realities

Friends – even if you are one of those people who claim to be only vaguely interested in television, and swear that you watch only PBS soap operas, British spy movies, The History Channel, or Bloomberg Business, you must be aware that the new season is upon us.  I, for one, am an unabashed TV

Lost in Translation

I know my little saga started on a Wednesday, because that’s when The New York Times publishes the “Dining” section.  It was my husband who saw the editorial about the gadget which promised to make the world’s best iced coffee.  He knows how much I love iced coffee, right up there on my food list

High Maintenance

This blog will be short and sweet because I have to run off to a doctor’s appointment.  I don’t remember if it is the dermatologist or the opthamologist.  I’ll have to consult my diary so I don’t wind up waiting an hour in the wrong office. I also have to check my wallet to make

The Road Not Taken

It was my personal opinion that if your car had a GPS, your marriage had at least a fifty percent better chance of lasting than the national average.   I confess that this conclusion was not based on a government-sponsored scientific research study, but rather on anecdotal evidence gathered from years of road trips with two
