A scare and nothing more
Thursday, December 06, 2012     

I was just finishing my breakfast and beginning my weekly serious housecleaning when the phone rang. It was She(WMBO): "Meet me at St Agnes." She was headed for the emergency room. She has been getting lots of migraines on her new bloo... Read more
All I want for Christmas ...
Wednesday, December 05, 2012     

... and other thoughts. I thought I wanted a bike. I know, what am I? Twelve? Actually a folding bike I could take with me when I go running in far away lands. But the airlines have $100 bike handling fees, even though folding bikes are no ... Read more
An active day doing things I hate doing
Tuesday, December 04, 2012     

I got up this morning about the time She(WMBO) was heading out the door. It was barely light out. No glasses on but I am able to see well enough to make coffee. Just don't ask me to read a clock. Coffee, bathroom, banana, back upstairs to ... Read more
How to shop for the perfect gift for the love of your life
Tuesday, December 04, 2012     

The culture of Christmas gift-giving in which the two of us, She(WMBO) and Yo!, were raised was very different. The way I was raised, no receipt was necessary. You paid attention to the person you would be giving to and buy the perfect gif... Read more
I say no to the NFL
Sunday, December 02, 2012     

Let the stoning begin. I do not like the NFL. I think it's an organization that is overrun with thugs, punks, and felons. And then we need to start talking about the players. And after yesterday's tragedy in Kansas City, I found... Read more
Kids say the darnedest things. Even when they are young adults.
Saturday, December 01, 2012     

Mike called me today. He's thinking of getting a pet. Not a dog or a cat or a parakeet. He had wanted an African Grey Parrot but we distance educated him about how long a parrot lives. They can be multi-generational pets. So no cat, dog, or bird... Read more
Make the world your oyster. The is no secret.
Friday, November 30, 2012     

I found this quote from the voice actor Maurice LaMarche. You may recognize him as the Orson Welles voiced character "The Brain" from the animated TV show "Pinky and the Brain." "Don't let anyone fool you. We're all flying by the seat of ou... Read more

It ain't cold yet.
Wednesday, November 28, 2012     

I don't think it broke 40ºF here today. And it was windy. But I went running any way. I did work up a sweat and that plus the breeze chilled me pretty deep. But it is still not officially cold as there were no icicles on my beard.... Read more
Hmmm, soy chorizo stuffed acorn squash for dinner
Tuesday, November 27, 2012     

It's getting to be late autumn and it's time to take advantage of those winter squashes. One of my favorites is the acorn squash. I also wanted something a little different so I made up this vegetarian chorizo stuffed squash. This is not just an... Read more
There's no place like it.
Monday, November 26, 2012     

I was sitting here this evening looking over my living room. There was She(WMBO) dozing in her chair watching Dexter (I don't get it ... a lovable serial killer?) my dogs were sprawled across the floor between my chair and the door tot he room, ... Read more
Musings from a lazy Sunday
Sunday, November 25, 2012     

Well not all lazy. It's Sunday so I got up to get me off to Mass. Good start so far. After Mass, the pool at the YMCA. Then home to finish unpacking and do my nasty laundry. And food shopping since clearly I am the only one in this house wh... Read more
Get away day
Saturday, November 24, 2012     

Our flight out of Corpus Christi was not until almost noon. Dr Dani's gym opened at 8:00. Only mile from the house. I was there for the door to open. I got 10 minutes on the indoor track (!) and nearly an hour on the machines. I was home by 9:20... Read more
Winding Down
Friday, November 23, 2012     

Wow. It has been a long month away from home. Since October 31 I have been home for all of three full days. But in that time, I have visited Phoenix AZ, our son in Los Angeles, and voted. I also spent time with our Daughter, ran two half maratho... Read more
My little girl is no longer a virgin ...
Thursday, November 22, 2012     

... she ran her first race today. Ha! You thought I was talking about something inappropriate. She has decided that she wants to run a half marathon with me and so today she ran her first race. It was the Corpus Christi Turkey Trot 4-m... Read more
