How To Be Old

A post from September 2011: I’m normally not much of a concert-goer.  I don’t like crowds and I don’t like crowded parking lots, and I especially don’t like crowded ladies’ rooms.  I put up with all of the above for the love of my life, James Taylor.  Everyone else, not so much. Recently, however, I …

Reminder Time!

Here’s a repeat – because it’s GOOD FOR YOU  (and because I’m taking a break).  *** HOW TO KICK-START YOUR DIET   I did it! The “Dreaded Colonoscopy”. Only it wasn’t so dreaded. It was easy.  Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.  (literally ‘lemon squeezy’) The hardest part was the prep. Which really wasn’t as bad as …

It’s the end of the month, and I’m paying bills. It’s true I guess that the spirit of Christmas can linger for a very long time. Especially the spirit of Christmas shopping. But now I am full of remorse for how much money I have spent since Christmas. Well, that’s sort of true, anyway. I am …

Style Rules (According To Me)

I have a few opinions. Some who know me might be saying “No kidding” under their breaths. That’s okay. I’m not hurt. They do know me. And they appreciate all my helpful advice. I’m quite sure. So here’s some of my indubitable (I love that word – my maiden name is Dube) opinions on style …

My Best Day Ever! (so far)

This is it! The best day ever in my whole life (so far). Exactly fifty years ago: February 9, 1964. There has been a fair amount of hoopla this year, given the 50th anniversary, so you may recognize this date. The Beatles made their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show. All my friends at …

It’s A Sign

It started just before Christmas. I was driving home after work, and as I looked in my rear-view mirror. I saw Santa Claus. Actually, I saw a big cardboard cut-out of Santa perched on the chimney of the house behind me. I wonder how they got that up there? I thought. And I took another …

Spending My Millions

I have just about everything I want. And most of the stuff that I don’t have – well, it’s just because it hasn’t worked its way up my priority list yet. I have a nice house, nice car, a very nice and very big wardrobe (and a nice big closet in my nice house to …

Genius or Idiot? You Decide.

This is the time of year when my fingernails get as brittle as the dead maples leaves. Luckily, they do not fall off like the leaves on our New England trees. But they snap and break like the dried-up twigs I’m stepping on. Housework this weekend broke eight out of ten fingernails. You’d think I’d …

Know-It-All, Part II

It’s time for another installment of Know-It-All, where I offer you the best of my unsolicited and usually obvious advice – First – because I am an unapologetic smarty-pants, and Second – because they say that you should stick with what you do best – and I am much better at giving advice than taking …

I’m jealous of my husband. Not jealous OVER my husband. Although I guess I would if he had a girlfriend. I guess. Maybe I would. I definitely would. Eventually. And I’m not jealous because he’s a MAN. No, I never wanted to be a man. As Elaine Benes said, “I don’t know how you guys …
