I will admit that I used to be afraid of the dark. I wasn’t afraid in my room under the covers with the lights out but I was often spooked in a dark hall or walking home from a babysitting job late; it was really a combination of the eerie quiet, reading too many Nancy […]

DODGERS WIN!

I have been a baseball fan and a Dodger fan as long as I can remember! I know there are people who think it is too slow to watch, which is probably because they are all ADD. Like many other people I have tons of memories. I won’t bore anyone with them all now. I […]

Jack

This is a silly thought I had – why are carved pumpkins called “jack-o-lanterns”? So, I looked it up with the magic of the internet. It seems that it comes from the 1500s when all those stories, fairy tales, nursery rhymes and fables were being told and nearly every little boy was named Jack! Jack […]

This is a relevant quote from the movie, Forrest Gump! I am not sure what happened to everyone in 2020 but it feels like we are definitely living in the era of stupid. Why are so many people adopting moronic behaviors? Why is it all so absurd? I know there have always been stupid people […]

That was my question last week to a friend while we played cards using one of my childhood decks of cards that had life savers on them.

Baseball 2020!

What horrible luck – Spectrum finally ends the stalemate so everyone can finally watch the Dodgers and there is no baseball season! The thing about this whole covid-19 thing is that every day is like a whole new ballgame.  And I started thinking right off the bat, the whole baseball lingo really describes this current season of life.Warning […]

Are you bored? Is sheltering at home driving you crazy? Have you binged watched until you want to puke? Have you cleaned and purged every corner of your living space? I have heard that word more in the last few weeks than I have in quite awhile so I felt compelled to share my views. […]

Running to Win

Today, I watched my son run a race; actually he and 8 friends ran a marathon (26.2 miles). I am proud of them all for finishing! I personally hate to run. I cannot imagine doing that for 4-6 minutes, let alone 4-6 hours! I often wish I had that kind of drive and commitment, but […]

Upside Down

It is interesting to me how backward, upside down and topsy turvy the Christian faith is. Think about it. Jesus won by losing. He taught that to be great, be a servant; to be first, go last; and to be promoted, humble oneself. It gets even more radical when Jesus says to bless those who […]
