Lots of counting, tracking, and numbers this month. The United States just turned 239 years old.  This blog has been around for eight years this month.  Jack Jack Cutie Face will be one year old tomorrow and on the very last day of July 2015, I will be forty-four. I’m not sure what any of this means,…

Flip Flops

It’s Memorial Day, again. Honestly, as I get older sometimes things become rote.  Here we go again, another Easter, it’s time for Halloween again.  As we move into summer, it’s another long weekend of flags, boats heading to the lake, and the smell of coals burning. More often than not, when I get in these modes, slip…

Torn Pocket

I should write a post about Baltimore. I have an opinion.  I’m sure for many it would be the wrong side, or maybe readers would agree and deem my thoughts correct, right. I’m not sure.  I have things to say, feelings to express, but when I try to put them down, they are too big,…

Sock Puppets

When did socks start having a left and a right?  More importantly, why do I feel like it’s wrong to put an R on my left foot and vise versa? It’s the day before Thanksgiving.  No, I am not in the holiday spirit, so stop smiling, stop playing Christmas music before it’s even Thanksgiving, and…

I’ll vote today, but I’m not sure why. I no longer believe my one vote can make a difference.  When I’m in my dark place, I’m not sure any of our votes make a difference.  My daughter is 21.  She’s gung ho, super excited about the election, and her vote.  We raised her that way,…

Revealing Blouse

I’m so tired of the back window over-share. This post may offend some people and for that I am maybe a little sorry.  I’m sure it’s not the first time I’ve offended someone and it certainly won’t be the last, but I need to blog this out. Bumper stickers are a form of expression, I get it.…

Memorial: Something, especially a structure, a reminder of a person or event. Today we are set to remember the people that have fought and died in the service of our military, our country. There are all sorts of memorials, all over the world, made of every material imaginable.  Cold marble or granite, strong steel, copper, elemental…

Red Cape

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s CVS? CVS has decided it’s new business model is to move toward a “place of wellness.”  I’m not sure that’s going to work, in fact, I’m pretty sure they will go bankrupt. It appears part of their plan is to remove cigarettes from all stores by October.  The…

Strong Fibers

I have only been scared a handful of times in my life.  Of those, I was only terrified once. I’ve stood up for my family or friends, but I’ve never moved a mountain, led a cause.  I’m not sure one has presented itself to me.  I’m certain I have never sought one out.  I’ve never…
