Sunday, March 15, 2015      5 comments

This is the last I will talk about Pi Day. Promise. I usually go to a meeting on Saturdays with about 20 people who sit in a circle and talk pretty seriously. On the way there, I stopped at McDonald's, pointed my credit card at the cashier ... Read more

Update on Cat

Well, he was just fine this morning. As someone commented, animals don't complain about their pain. He would NOT take a pain pill so it is hidden in his soft food. I hope h... Read more

Cat Surgery

Tuesday, March 10, 2015      3 comments

I just brought Chauncey The Amazing Cat home from the vet and he seems very energetic for a cat who had a big surgery today. He had a tumor removed from his tongue which was initially thought to be cancerous. Now the vet thinks maybe not, but we... Read more

Recovering Chairs

Monday, March 09, 2015      4 comments

Is anyone interested in how to spend a Sunday indoors? Yesterday I had Spring fever and nowhere to go, so I recovered my kitchen chairs. It's been about 10 years since I last did this in a nice cheery yellow and they were beyond cleaning one mor... Read more

From my Sofa to Yours

Saturday, February 07, 2015      5 comments

Aside from napping a lot, there is little news from here. No bright flashes in the sky and no tragedies; what little good that has occurred has been just a little bit better than nothing happening at all. Well, I did buy a quesadilla maker but i... Read more

The stairs had to be cleared--it took some hard work by me to do it. I measured 24 inches near the stairs and then gave up on getting to the REAL drifts to measure any more. Never made it to the car. My dear neighbor did a little of hi... Read more

Same old snow in CT

Tuesday, January 27, 2015      5 comments
