Maybe two months ago, while Anne was watching something that did not interest me, I came across an ad for seasonal jobs at Barnes & Noble book stores. On a whim, I applied, then forgot about it. I got a call the other day from...

I was sitting at my computer early this morning, feeling the cool air across my bare feet. There were clouds in the sky, but I couldn't tell if they were rain clouds, or just fog burning off. Suddenly, I felt the air...

Ever since I had my hip replaced a couple of years ago I've suffered the indignity of being manually frisked every time I've gone through an airport. The metal in the false hip sets off the alarms. I flew to Spain a couple of...

After eating turkey all week at various potluck luncheons at work, I was not really looking forward to the Big Turkey Day on Thursday. Quite frankly, I was all turkeyed out! My ex-wife and I, along with her husband and my...

Less than a week ago I posted a discussion about my son's new job. I talked about his benefits and his schedule and how he feels about his job. I thought this was a pretty innocent post. Apparently not. One member said I was...
