What Happened To Warm And Fuzzy Fundraising?
The doorbell rang when The Doc and Bitch were downstairs in the family room, both reclined with their feet up, intent on watching the baseball game. It was the ninth inning and their beloved Blue Jays were losing. As loyal fans, they were hoping for a ninth-inning rally.

It’s Fixed. It’s Washed. I’m Happy.
Early Monday morning, well early for us retired people, I took my banged-up, duct-taped car in for repairs. Some of you will remember my car.

Film Noir In My Dreams
Where do they come from, those crazy and strange dreams? Subconscious thoughts are interesting things that, most of the time in my case, stay in my subconscious.

So Earth Day was April 22, which was yesterday at time of writing.

Fifty-three years ago. And … Continue reading Will We Ever Learn

After the End
No one wants to discuss after the end because that means acknowledging that there will be an end. And that means acknowledging one's mortality–the fact that we all must die. This has to be the most avoided conversation subject in history. People prefer not to think about, let alone, discuss this topic; but it is … Continue reading After the End
Just When She Thought The Bitchiness Was Waning
It had been rather calm in the bitch's life as of late. Some people may even call it boring, although this bitch is never bored. Personally, she considered herself very content because her house was back to normal after a year of insurance claims and repairs. She didn't mind that this calm state didn't produce … Continue reading Just When She Thought The Bitchiness Was Waning
Have you noticed how expensive books are these days?
