It’s showtime again. Last week, Garry was not perfect but has come a long way. He’s not at 100% — if indeed at our ages we are ever at 100% — but he can talk normally, isn’t coughing much and… Read More ›
You can’t make this stuff up
MEDIA WAR STORIES, EPISODE 7
It’s showtime again. This show was taped in Connecticut. No video boxes because (ta da), Tom and Garry are together on the set in Tom’s studio. It’s a very funny episode. It’s especially interesting how their being together changes the… Read More ›
A VERY SHORT WEIRD WEEKEND IN THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK
Sometimes, you have to go with the flow, use whatever tools are available and deal with what life has decided to throw at you.
LIFE, DEATH, CANCER, AND DIGNITY
I don’t talk much about the “reality” of having cancer. It’s not the same for everyone. I had it twice, once for each breast and each was unrelated to the other. It was relatively minor for me other than the… Read More ›
MEDIA WAR STORIES – EPISODE 4
IN WHICH GARRY HITS THE RIVER AND TOM CAN’T STOP LAUGHING AS THE NETWORK FAILS FOR NO GOOD REASON In this episode Garry accidentally goes swimming in the Concord River on Live TV and how he escaped a severe beating… Read More ›
THE DAILY NOOZE TWO
Just to add to the confusion, we were planning to collect Garry’s repaired “other” hearing aid. He has been struggling with only one. The company — the same one who supplied the original — sent back the wrong hearing aid…. Read More ›
THE DAILY NOOZE
Is it me? Or does everything whack you all at the same time? I finally got to the dentist after so many cancellations that I simply couldn’t cancel it again. Good thing I didn’t because while I don’t have any… Read More ›
SPAM COMMENT DU JOUR
Spam Comment of the Week — Week 52 2022 What it lacks in relevance it makes up for with a hint of other-worldly poetry that seems to have nothing to do with my blog. I’m not sure it has anything to… Read More ›
“I LOVE YOU”: THE VIRUS
There are memories that make us happy and then there are memories we’d just as soon forget. This is one I had managed to forget until a friend reminded me why I don’t have any of my early digital photographs…. Read More ›
THE MONDAY PEEVE – DON’T YOU HATE WHEN THAT HAPPENS?
Where did my pictures go? So here’s the scenario. I have my card in its reader in my computer. Instead of doing what I usually do — copying the pictures from the card to the newly-created photo folder, I use… Read More ›
SPAM DU JOUR
Spam Comment of the Week — Week 46 2022 Oh the magic of spam! Aimed at everyone or no one, does anyone think we are going to respond to these “messages”? Who would that be? Maybe someone too old to understand… Read More ›
THE JOY OF DISPOSAL
I take a maximum load of blood pressure medications. “The full load,” my cardiologist once commented. Since then, I’ve managed to stop taking two of them. The rest, I’m stuck with. Earlier surgery for ulcers means I also take a… Read More ›
DO YOU NEED A NEW ALUMINUM FOIL CAP? YOU’VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.
Once upon a time, we thought this kind of thing was confined to the nutcases you met in regular life. You think you know someone. You hang out, exchange emails. Make a few jokes. Maybe you work with them. Then, one… Read More ›
A SIGN ALONG THE ROAD
Very nearby, we have both a Mennonite and Amish community. Moreover, the entire Blackstone Valley is religious. We have churches of every Christian denomination and more than one of each. No synagogues. This is definitely a Christian area. It isn’t… Read More ›
SO, WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
I’m 75 this year and Garry turned 80. Both of us were absolutely, positively, totally sure the world at the end of our lives would be vastly different and far better than it was when our lives began. As far… Read More ›
MYSTERIES OF DISAPPEARING STUFF
If ever I were to believe in parallel universes, it would be now. Things are disappearing. Not just my stuff. Our stuff — from eyeglasses to written notes, from kitchen items, to sleepwear. The first vanishing event was the disappearance… Read More ›
