• On the way to car rider a few days ago I decided to puzzle over something that was unnecessary but engaging. I spend a disturbing amount of time mulling over the unnecessary. Despite my awareness of this habit I continued to mull. With absolutely no warning, the term legally dead popped into my mind. To me dead is pretty clear. Why are we expected to legalize this condition? Does being legally dead offer one entrance into an exclusive club? Does membership grant the decedent all rights and privileges afforded to this particular state of being?

  • The arrival of summer brings me back to life. The air is humid, the sun is shining, the plants are growing, and I don my preferred “couture” of a tee shirt, shorts and flip flops. These are not just any flip flops but are of the 98 cents variety. In addition to being amazingly inexpensive they come in a rainbow of colors. I love my cheap flip flops!

  • I have always had an admiration for grace, rhythm, and dexterity. I possess none of the above. Be that as it may, I have learned to laugh at my blunders. If I didn’t have a sense of humor I would hide under the house in abject mortification; sneaking out only at night to raid the refrigerator.

  • I come from a long line of gardeners, both floral and vegetable. Any plant ever grown could not help but thrive under the care of my parents and grandparents and probably several generations back. Miracle Grow flows through the veins of my family!

  • The morning began in its usual fashion: my husband crawling out of bed to get ready for work accompanied by me, climbing over dogs, cats and crawling husbands. The Doggy Dawn Patrol charged down the Sinister Steep Stairs for their early morning potty break, nearly taking me along for the ride in the process.
