Failure to Print

     My husband and I just returned from a successful 10-day holiday.   I deem it successful because we managed to avoid almost all of the hazards of traveling.  We had:  no flight delays, no lost luggage, comfortable hotels, absence of intestinal backlash, good weather, and letting others do the driving, which greatly minimizes opportunities

The View from My Armchair

I am in recupery.  To describe my present condition as "recovery" gives the impression that I've entered a 12-step program.  Which I haven't.  Although I wouldn't object to attending AA meetings provided they were  held anywhere that was not my living room. As you know, if you were paying attention (see essay posted on July

My Left Shoulder

I apologize for the fact that I’m late in delivering this new post.   That is, if anyone even noticed that  I’m a few days past my deadline.  Five to be exact, if you happen to mark your calendar.  Which I highly doubt.  But that’s okay.  I don’t mind my usual timeliness being taken for granted.

Old Ironsides

At first, I wasn’t sure why my mind wandered to this particular topic.  It might have been the sense of  torture brought on by endless exposure to political gurus. Or perhaps it was the stomach ache which followed an uncontrollable fit of laughter.  The latter occurred  as I was perusing the latest issue of The

Here’s the Thing…..

No doubt my priorities are all screwed up.  There’s so much going on in the world that cries out for serious attention and consideration, and here I sit, obsessing about Viagra commercials. Gun violence, Brexit, terrorist explosions, to say nothing of the upcoming political conventions during which two flawed candidates will be nominated to run

Eye Opener

By any chance, do you to remember an old movie called The Enchanted Cottage starring Robert Young and Dorothy McGuire? It was released a long time ago, 1945 to be exact.  If you don’t remember it, please don’t lie and tell me it’s because you weren’t born yet.  I happen to know how old you

The Eye of the Beholder

Has this ever happened to you? You’re in a restaurant.  In your line of vision is another table with, let’s say, three couples.  You unconsciously absorb the physical details of the six well-dressed people who are about to eat their appetizers.  You notice the gray hair on the partially bald men, the obviously chemically-treated hair

The Right To Bare Arms

Overheard at Saks: Shopper No. 1:“Ooh, that’s such an adorable dress.” Shopper No. 2:  “So why don’t you try it on? Shopper No. 1:  “Are you crazy? It’s sleeveless! As we approach the warmer weather, I am convinced that this scene will be replayed over and over again in boutiques and department stores across the

Failure to Print

Honestly, did I really need another reminder that I was old? I thought I paid my dues this year with a few more wrinkles, deeper frown lines, a couple of extra sun spots, and a pair of eyeglasses that I was now required to use when driving.  Oh, and the addition to my never-again list

Mini Me

I am about to brag.  If you don’t want to listen to me bragging, you have my permission to stop reading right now.  I generally hate it when people brag, so I wouldn’t blame you in the least. Bragging is obnoxious.  If it isn’t one of the seven deadly sins, it should be.  I much
