Dear William et al Friday Round-Up

Lately, it seems like writing a letter on personalized stationery and putting it in a mailbox on a rural road in Alaska would get a faster response than some of my emails. It feels weird and old ladyish to complain about such a thing,… Continue Reading “Dear William et al Friday Round-Up”

Better Late Than Never Friday Round-Up

I see your soggy box wine and raise you a four-pack of little bottles of Chardonnay from Walgreen’s. It occurred to me after I posted photos on Facebook of unloading our sodden camping gear at a dog park in order to wring it out… Continue Reading “Better Late Than Never Friday Round-Up”

You Can Get What You Want When You Figure Out What It Is Friday Round-Up

We sold our Bambi. We fell in love with Airstream trailers years ago. Every time we passed one on the highway, we’d ooh and ahh. They’re so perfectly designed, so beautiful. But after owning one for just four months, we knew we weren’t Airstream… Continue Reading “You Can Get What You Want When You Figure Out What It Is Friday Round-Up”

Birthday Ramp-Up Friday Round-Up

My birthday is Monday so I’m trying to get in a good mood about it in advance. I’d say it was a big number but they’re all big numbers now. My inclination was to dummy up about it, wave it away, do a good… Continue Reading “Birthday Ramp-Up Friday Round-Up”

New and Used Friday Round-Up

I wasn’t sure, but it turned out I did actually snip the Goodwill tag off my new vest before sitting with my back to a bunch of people at this morning’s conference workshop. I wondered about it, wondered if a kind soul would gently… Continue Reading “New and Used Friday Round-Up”

Bee That As It May Friday Round-Up

I was approached by a very nice woman wearing a high-collared tweed jacket who asked if I’d consider becoming a hand model for a national, high end lotion company. She said I’d have to stop mopping the floors on my hands and knees with… Continue Reading “Bee That As It May Friday Round-Up”

Heavyweight Week Friday Round-Up

We were gifted two cans of salmon. Thus, I am making salmon patties for dinner and remembering my mother’s salmon patties made with a can of salmon mixed with crumbled Saltines. They were oddly yummy notwithstanding the wee circular bones that popped up occasionally.… Continue Reading “Heavyweight Week Friday Round-Up”

Nothing Fits Friday Round-Up

The people of Ukraine refuse to sit down. We have not seen this kind of thing in a long time and we don’t know what to do with it, it being so foreign to how we are as a country right now. So, we… Continue Reading “Nothing Fits Friday Round-Up”

Ukrainian Blue Friday Round-Up

Face it, you’re never going to wear that sweater. Or use that bag or read that book again (since you couldn’t finish it the first time). Don’t stand there lecturing yourself about how the sweater would look great with a brown turtleneck. It doesn’t.… Continue Reading “Ukrainian Blue Friday Round-Up”

A Week of War Friday Round-Up

You can say something is unfathomable only once and then it becomes fathomable. It is not unfathomable the second time your boyfriend gives you a black eye. The minute Russia shot off the first missile, the first bomb, rolled the first tank, the invasion… Continue Reading “A Week of War Friday Round-Up”
