Daisy in the Spotlight

(re-run) Daisy’s favorite spot at the beach house is on the back of the couch. From there she can see the squirrels taunting her from the trees outside the window. She can see part of the street where dog walkers go by every five minutes or so. Pepper has taken over the antique silk wing… Continue reading Daisy in the Spotlight

Dating in your Sixties

There are lots of reasons why dating in your 60s is hard – wrinkles, scars, bad breath, missing teeth, surprise farting, family issues, and the biggest one – different politics. Politico announced yesterday that the Supreme Court is gearing up to overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark case in 1973 regarding a woman’s right to… Continue reading Dating in your Sixties

Last Costco Run of 2021

I have a love-hate relationship with Costco.  I love the convenience of buying candy, batteries, latex gloves, apples, wool socks and books in one run. I hate the lifting, then lifting again, and finally, lifting again at home. Today the checker’s helper did the lifting onto the conveyor belt. “Please don’t put anything heavy on… Continue reading Last Costco Run of 2021

It’s a Jungle Out There

There are so many people in the drop-in class that I have to stand right in front of the glass doors, with a view of the hills filled with wild turkeys, birds, and now Wiley Coyote. My back hurts… Continue reading It’s a Jungle Out There

Old People Perks at Costco

I went to Costco this morning, my monthly grocery run. I got there at 8:30, and the doors were already open. The sign said Seniors over 60- only. I got my cart and headed inside. “Are you 60?” the dude at the door asked. “65!” I said, a new bounce in my step. I’d been… Continue reading Old People Perks at Costco

Freeing Up Space

Google has been telling me for days now that I am running out of storage space. Rather than bug my adult son about it, I bought extra space from Google. Guess what? It didn’t change a thing.  Still not wanting to bother my technological son in a pandemic, since he lives elsewhere, I used Google… Continue reading Freeing Up Space
