Thank you all for your kind words. It means a lot to both Nancy and me. We certainly ARE due to catch a break, right?

Geez. I couldn't even remember where we'd moved all of our doggerel, cleverness, and ranting when VOX tipped over. Good thing that I remembered to search Nancy Mitchell blog on Google. I could have gone the narcissistic route and searched for my own name I guess. Typepad! Thank you! Scroll... Continue reading

Well, I finally did it. Took a step toward what I've promised Nancy would be a focus on doing things. Getting things done. Not obliviously walking past the recycling on the way out the door. Being proactive on household and self maintenance. Doing the things that will make us more... Continue reading

What is it about a work coffee machine that you don't get? Is it the hard-to-find, already-started rip-top bag just above the coffe maker? Is it the hard-to-find coffee filters next to the already-started rip-top bag of coffee just above the coffee maker? Is it the slide-out filter holder on... Continue reading

"They're for here." It took me a moment to realize the guy was talking to me. I'd just pulled in to the grocery store parking lot with a coupon for half-off deli meat. Shopping too late the other night, the deli had closed, so I figured I'd stop some other... Continue reading

After washing some dishes this morning, I forgot to put my rings back on my fingers. It's amazing how disoriented I feel not have my wedding ring on my finger. The ring on my right hand is a silver interlocking triple band bought on our first trip together in Mexico.... Continue reading

This is another one of those foods that I've never tried - thinking I won't like them. I used to say that about olives of any color or size. Then Nancy made me try some...

Nancy and I recently watched a great 2009 documentary about Hugh Hefner. I learned a lot about the man that I didn't know. Hugh Hefner: Playboy, Activist, Rebel. I hope you’ve seen it. If you know only one dimension of the man, spend a couple of hours with this film.... Continue reading

Why that title popped into my mind, I'll never know. I was looking at it as a 'cherish every moment' kind of title - having heard the phrase somewhere before. Then I googled it. John Denver "Some Days Are Like Diamonds." I guess I was right. Sort of. I've been... Continue reading

I've always been a fan of theme songs. We now watch a lot of DVR shows, so most of the time we skip right past them. But I've always been a fan - right back to The Rockford Files and (embarrassingly enough) The Beverly Hillbillies and My Mother The Car.... Continue reading

I did finally reach a state of clarity! Only after another four hours of mind-numbing boredom and Rug Doctor Juice With Oxywhatever. And thank you for the kindness on line about Nancy. She's the greatest storyteller ever!
