In a blog post titled Books And Bees 10 days ago, I wrote that we had mowed our lawns and most of the main pasture, leaving the area where Terry’s fruit trees are untouched because it was full of clover that the bees were happily enjoying. I also left the back pasture behind the barn […]

A Few Too Many

For quite a while now, Terry has been experiencing pain in her right elbow that is exacerbated when she tries to lift anything. At our last doctor’s appointment, they gave her a steroid shot and prescribed Prednisone tablets. She was instructed to take two pills once a day for a week and then one pill […]

Busy As Bees

Even though I didn’t get any writing done yesterday, we were as busy as bees and got a lot accomplished. After dealing with the morning’s load of e-mail, which seemed to be larger than normal for some reason, including not one, not two, but three different people contacting me who are generals or presidents of […]

If there’s one thing that is guaranteed, it’s that the cost of everything from gasoline to food to clothing and furniture are always going up. And apparently that includes basic bodily functions. As I reported earlier, the La-Z-Boy chair that I purchased a couple of years ago has literally fallen apart on me, and this […]

We were up and out the door early yesterday morning, or at least early for us, because I had a doctor’s appointment in Port Orange. The appointment was at 10:15, but I was supposed to be there half an hour early. We left the house a little before nine and arrived at the doctor’s office […]

Do you name your vehicles? Do you think they have a personality? I don’t think I have ever named one, but I do sometimes think they have a personality. I just didn’t know they had ears until now. I know what you’re thinking, cars are machines. Inanimate objects. They don’t have feelings, they don’t have […]

Miss Terry had a doctor’s appointment early Monday afternoon and we thought we would pop into the library in New Smyrna Beach on the way and vote early. As it turned out, about half of Volusia County had the same idea. The place was packed and a double line snaked up and down the hallway. […]

This may come as a surprise to some of you, but my beautiful, demure wife has a fetish. Well, to be honest with you, she has a bunch of fetishes. Okay, get your collective minds out of the gutter, that’s not what I mean. These are a different kind of fetish. People have asked what […]

Is It Monday?

For some reason it seemed like a very long weekend to both of us, and more than once we found ourselves checking our cell phones for the date or asking each other what day it was. I guess that’s one of the great things about being semi-retired. Except for the occasional doctor’s appointment, we don’t […]
