The Day Grandma Got Woke

(re-run) My mom loved to watch Ellen. It’s usually fun and games, with hunky guys and Ellen playing tricks on her guests and staff.

New Guy in Town

I fell in love when he played the cowboy thief in Thelma and Louise. He’s still a heart throb, only eight years younger than I am.  And now he’s bought a mansion in a town down the road from my little beach house.  I read it in Carmel magazine this week. His new house is… Continue reading New Guy in Town

O is for Old Words with New Meanings

As a word lover, I noticed yesterday that some words change their meanings over time. Like dude. It used to mean a gussied-up cowboy or ranch hand. Now it means wow or c’mon or I hear you or unbelievable. As I made a list of words with changed meanings I realized many of them apply… Continue reading O is for Old Words with New Meanings
