The Characteristic of Curiosity

Curiosity makes you smart, silly, and sensational. Curiosity helps you retain Wonder, which is grand! Curiosity drives knowledge growth, which can never hurt… Yet, “curiosity killed the cat” Yikes! Splat!

#1 Boomer Issue: Word Finding Problems

As you know, I’m a Boomer-aged chicka. Don’t even ask me my age. I’m living free and easy, retired from a fabulous career and feeling great.

Most days.

You know you’re old(er) when…

It’s that time of year. The parties are over and Christmas decor packed. The diet has started and I’m deep in lament. Why, exactly, did i eat all the chocolate candies, cookies, and eclectic junk?

I hate this time of year, despite the fact that the days are rapidly gaining light, lengthening to refresh good moods and spirits of adventure.… ...

Keeping up with the Jones – who dat?

Tis the season to be jolly. Tis the season to shop.

Tis the season to decorate your home, inside and out. Does your home look like the Griswolds? Do you compete with your neighbor to assure you have the biggest, gaudiest, noisiest, most electricity-sucking home on the block?… ...

Spender Bender

My husband and I saved money after gaining it the good old-fashioned American way:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAMRXqQXemU

We moved to the land of Opportunity that California was in 1979, a bit behind the steep climb in housing prices, fantastic career opportunities, but we planted-and-thrived anyway, coincident to the year the Smith Barney TV commercial aired.… ...

Boots

“These boots are made for walking…” but that’s not what they’ve been doing…

P1050272

I purchased these boots last October to prepare for the much-craved El Nino rains. California’s crops and people were thirsty. Typical winter in soCal provides abundant water, but we hadn’t had typical in years; this year there’d be more as per needs, er demands.… ...

Simple, simple, simple

My Boomer friends and I are fuming. It feels better to be fribbly fuss-budget than be-fuddled. Agreed?

Our griping may be similar to the Angry White Man diatribes, the male version of snark, about Every Thing that’s Wrong with America.… ...

A before B and C = see you later

I scrutinized my look in the mirror. Closely, as I tried to re-create the facial expression at the moment when that woman asked me my age.

Social Life

social lifeOur social life has migrated to the middle of the week? Has yours as well?

That is, we often get together with friends on Hump Day, though without the camel, thank you very much:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxCVtEeJnZ
