Life Is Rough.

Life Is Rough.

At the house from which I recently moved, there were two incredibly large pine trees in the side yard. In autumn, each tree rained pine cones. Each pine cone I had to pick up to dispose – one year I removed over 8,000 off the lawn. Yep, I counted. Boring thing to do but must…read more »

20th Anniversary 9/11 Memorial Ceremony

Last Saturday I attended the 20th Anniversary 9/11 Memorial Ceremony hosted by New Bern Fireman’s Museum. It began at 8:47 a.m., the same time twenty years ago when NYPD and FDNY forces dispatched units to the World Trade Center, while Port Authority Police Department offiers on site began immediate evacuation of the North Tower.

Don’t Know What You Got

Don’t Know What You Got

Don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone. Sad, but true. In our case, we don’t have any twist ties. Yep, those bendy little wires you find at the end of a loaf of bread or tying up a trash bag. Or for tying up anything else, for that matter. Can’t count the number of…read more »

This happened to you?

This happened to you?

This has happened to me before and it happened again last week. Upon entering a department store, I happened to notice an elderly gentleman ahead of me pushing a cart. No big deal. Saw him again by the in-store pharmacy. Okay. Then saw him walking through the hardware section. Then in an aisle of the…read more »

You’ve Been Notified…

You’ve Been Notified…

Went back-to-school shopping for the kids last weekend. On Saturday it was to get new clothes, which they needed regardless. Sunday we got them “learning supplies”, which set us back $145. And we’re still not finished – they both need backpacks, which may run us another 30 to 40 dollars. Not complaining – hey, kids…read more »

Well used, indeed

I had a dilemma a couple years ago. The old, ragged, well-used footwear I was using when mowing the lawn and for other outdoor yard work had bit the dust. Time for a new pair of unwanted shoes to perform those chores. Problem was I didn’t have another pair of unwanted shoes for that purpose.…read more »
