THE MOST TALKED ABOUT SUBJECT IN THE WORLD…….....

Feb 22, 2015 by

You guessed it—the weather.  And what a week it’s been.  Those poor people in the northeast are getting slammed.  My friend, Susie, is stuck in Washington, D.C. because her flight has been delayed — for 2 days.  Thank goodness, she has a second home there.  I told her at least your not stranded in the airport, sleeping on the floor.  And you know what all that horrible weather means?  Those people are gonna be movin’ south!  (I just hope they bring water with them.)  But, they’ll probably go back north after going through an August in Texas.  As for me, today will be spent getting ready for watching the Academy Awards and of course, the red carpet before (I’ll miss Joan Rivers!).  I know, I know it is self promotion but just allow me...

WHERE DID THE ROMANCE GO?

Feb 14, 2015 by

What is happening to Valentines Day?  It used to be about couples celebrating their love.  Flowers.  Chocolate.  Going out for dinner.  You know, it was row-mannnn-tick.  Now, there are celebrations for “Valentine haters”.  I must admit, the day does put a little pressure on people and thank goodness people are figuring out you can celebrate with anyone, but I do detect a little sarcasm this year…………….  I’m kinda enjoying it.              ...

OKAY, I GET IT……

Feb 1, 2015 by

It’s really yucky outside—rainy and quite cool.  So, here I am, sitting on the sofa, watching a golf tournament.  Cue the screeching tires.  Whhhhaaaattttt??? Am I not the person who used to say watching a golf tournament is like watching a hair cut?  Yes, mam.  And now, not only do I watch it on the tube, I actually play it.   Obviously, I am a late starter but the interesting thing is the hurdles I overcame when I decided to take it up.  My first goal was to be just good enough so I could be like those obnoxious golfers that come into the bar after he and his buddies have played a round.  Not really.  And by the way , golf does not stand for Gentlemen Only Ladies Forbidden.  Anyway, back to my...
