You shouldn’t have left your toes out there…

Too many folks that I interact with leave things anywhere and everywhere.  Very few pick up after themselves.  This includes personal items, items required to do their job.  And what is left lying around the most.  Toes, those little things that are always getting stepped on.  My gawd I cannot believe this. I work in dining services for a small state college near my home.  We are catering an event that is going to be an intimate dinner for an university official and five additional guests.  (With me so far, the count is 6.)  Well, I come into the office … Continue reading You shouldn’t have left your toes out there…

Blame it on Shepherdstown…

Well, as infrequently as I post one would wonder if I still existed.  I do, and I shall.  It appears that I have plenty of time, maybe 15-20 years according to my doctor.  When She gave me my last bill of health she was ecstatic and proud of my accomplishments regarding the weight loss, control of my diabetes and high blood pressure.  (Where upon hearing the praise I asked, “Got a cigarette?”) I love the movie “Blame it on Rio” Michael Cain, Demi Moore trudge through a May/September relationship and I have found myself debating some of the same issues. … Continue reading Blame it on Shepherdstown…

(I) am not alone…

then why can’t I get anyone to scratch my back? Found a quote that had me Pondering… (Yes, with a capital “P”) “The world is changed by your example. Not your opinion.” – Paulo Coelho In spite of being by myself at the time, I got the wind knocked out of me when I received a text from a friend who had just completed his EMT Basic training. And he’s excited about the things that lay ahead. Then in my minds eye I saw faces and heard voices of people from my past who have be affected by my words, … Continue reading (I) am not alone…

Please leave things alone, I have a chance…

I’m just going to post this here for the moment. The rants and raves continue and I am so fed up with it. Videos of bible thumping trolls lapping their local Targets and the rhetoric of the narrow focassed elected officials. I decided to go off budget and pick up a “vice” magazine. And upon realizing who it was on the cover, I set back with a knowing grin and chuckled. If only I had been a girl… For those unfamiliar, this is the current (June 2016) cover of a lifestyle/fashion magazine published in England. (GQ but for a younger … Continue reading Please leave things alone, I have a chance…

Smart *#!@ little so-and-so…

A member/client asked me about bike riding for older adults. I answered thinking about someone in their seventies and eighties, since I am in my fifties. I know several cyclists who are 10-15 years my senior. “Oh, no, I was asking for someone my grandmother’s age – she’s 52.” After I resisted the urge to smack the stuffing out of the smarmy little… I proceeded with what I thought was a well thought opinion. Then I researched and came across this article that mirrored my response and suggestions. I’m going to reshare. Link to People for Bikes article: Silver Linings Continue reading Smart *#!@ little so-and-so…

Quotable: II (Essay/S.A. part two)

“How strangely will the Tools of a Tyrant pervert the plain Meaning of Words!”  (Samuel Adams) Gone are the times when our President, who was elected, by a landslide, for a second term is still undermined by a Republican congress and fettered by interpretations of a bastardized constitution.  (yes, I recognize the mis-spelling.  The lower case intentional for this instance.) I fear for my rights to pursuit of happiness because a candidate for president (again, intentional) wants to take my rights away.  A republican appointed supreme court (and again) says that with all the jiggery pokery I am allowed to … Continue reading Quotable: II (Essay/S.A. part two)
