Welp, I was all set to apologize for yet another weight gain, but my scales surprised me this morning! 207.4 Actually down a bit since last week, so that was a pleasant surprise. Sorta like the rabbit that popped up in our front yard this past week! No, no, this one's not quite as bad … Continue reading This was unexpected, sorta like a rabbit in the front yard!
Wow, has it really been 20 years since September 11, 2001, that beautiful morning when the sky was blue and the sun was shining and the autumn leaves were just starting to turn ... and four planes were hijacked? Sometimes it seems like just yesterday ... sometimes it seems like a lifetime ago. Anyway, given … Continue reading 20 years already? Sigh …
Well, welcome back, everyone! Yeah, it looks like after enjoying the freedom to gasp and wheeze without a mask at the gym, we're gonna have to go back to those hated cloth diapers indoors for a while longer.

Good morning, friends and family -- and brr, what a cold, shivery morning it is for a lot of you! Sorry to read about all your trials and travails, trying to keep warm out there in Missouri and Kansas and Texas and, you know, basically everywhere except, uh, where *I* happen to be located this … Continue reading Shivery Ash Wednesday!
Whew! Well, unless something really crazy happens after I post this (and you and I know that's still a live possibility), today Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th Prez of these here Yoo-nited States! And life can finally go back to ... well, whatever passes for "normal" these days, I've kinda lost … Continue reading Our long national nightmare is over — now we can start focusing on what’s REALLY important, like my weight!
Yeah, it's nice to report that my weight went down a tad: 199.8 But with everything that's going on in the world right now, I don't know about you, but it's hard to put my puny li'l ol' weight loss efforts at top priority. A bigger priority is just staying sane, when you're surrounded by … Continue reading Find some sanity, where you can!
Well, howdy, everyone! Here we are in the Future, the fabulous, far-away sounding year of 2021 A.D., and [squints] huh ... well, gee whillikers, Batman, I, uh, hate to say this, but it kinda looks not all that different from 2020, so far! Well, okay, calm down! Let's just keep all our fingers and toesies … Continue reading Dominion rigged my scales!
