Confessions of Groddler

I feel like a grown up toddler. A groddler if you will. A groddler in dire need of a time out.  For a week.  In Paris......with wine but no email or phone.  The only way people can reach me is carrier pigeon.  That's my idea of the time out needed. Things are changing fast.  We … Continue reading Confessions of Groddler

Go Home Alzheimer’s…You’re Drunk

Preface:  There has been a mandatory hiatus from this.  Sorry/not sorry.  I know it was abrupt.  I know it was unexplained.  I'll try to explain now. As for finally breaking my silence?  This is partly my own therapy because the grief/anger/fear/horror/grief/anger/fear/horror/fatigue/grief/anger/fear...just sometimes gets to be bigger than rationality. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My father is in a lockdown … Continue reading Go Home Alzheimer’s…You’re Drunk


I think it's safe to say that anyone with a pulse has heard about the latest Hollywood scandal.  This time, it really does constitute a scandal.  This isn't about yet another Hollywood divorce or drinking problem or their latest social awareness agenda being rammed down the throats of John Q. Public because some starlet wants … Continue reading #metoo

The Nuts On My Family Tree (No Really It’s Just Me)

Talkin’ Dirty

Ever seen this? Yeah me too.   I will readily admit my giggle of delight the first time I saw it referencing Jersey girl 'tude.  Since then I have seen it applied to every, and I do mean every person. Wait!  I'm not done yet.  Every person...and I've seen it for every ethnicity, sports team, hobby, city, state, … Continue reading Talkin’ Dirty

Truth in Lending

This is actually a picture taken from a couple of years ago. I've been going through old photos on my phone and realized this was a gem that I never addressed fully in the manner in which it was intended when I took it at a marine store.  Yep, she ain't a department store gal. … Continue reading Truth in Lending


Licking Electrical Sockets and Other Thrill Seeking Tales of Valor

In a world of viral outrage I have retreated more and more back into what we non tech people like to call the real world.  It's a place where one has to have conversations and resolve things and discuss differing ideas and sometimes agree that  disagree.  The amazing thing in this strange land is that … Continue reading Licking Electrical Sockets and Other Thrill Seeking Tales of Valor

Does Your Inner Girl Have a Vagina?

My husband and I got into a really interesting and intense conversation last weekend. We were discussing the difference in how men process things versus women.  Women can literally morph an off-hand comment into such an epic shit storm while men can make everything including our period flow about them. I'll explain.  My husband can … Continue reading Does Your Inner Girl Have a Vagina?
