WIFEY TALKS IN HER SLEEP !!!

Wifey Talks In Her Sleep… Yes, she actually does. But that doesn’t mean I can interpret what she’s saying. However…. There are days when the Pearls Of Wisdom she utters are such that they need to be recorded. The first important words that were understandable were spoken around three AM over 10 years ago. We...

AGE CREEPS UP AND BITES YOU IN THE ASS!

Age creeps up on you and bites you in the ass! I’ve reached the age when I don’t relish picking up the phone since often there is bad news on the other end. And at my age, hospitals become your stomping ground. So many people I know are having or have just had surgery. One... Read more »

Wifey, Get Your Gun,We're Going To The Library!

“Wifey, get your weapon, we’re going to the Library”. No that’s not a joke; it may soon be the law in Arizona. Yes, the idiots who cut most of the money to fund education in Arizona (the state is 47th in academic achievement) instead are wasting their time debating if people should be allowed to...

STUFF HAPPENS...

Stuff Happens… Wifey and I love an evening of good jazz. Two weeks ago we found a favorite of ours, Judy Roberts, was playing at OC’s 7, a small supper club located in an athletic club. Judy has been a fixture in both the Chicago and Phoenix jazz scenes for a long time. In my... Read more »

THE IDIOCY CONTINUES....

The Idiocy Continues…. You may not believe it, but the HOA crap continues to be unresolved. One would think with a new regime things would straighten themselves out. You would be wrong! Last Friday we stopped at the Scottsdale Ranch office and met with the lady in charge of homeowner liaison. She told us what... Read more »

HOA NOW, HOA AGAIN, WHEN WILL IT EVER END?

Thanks to all of you who’ve asked about the HOA. Our homeowners association had its annual meeting last week and there’s fresh new blood running our HOA, including the leading vote getter who is 94 years of age! The meeting had its excitement and I must modestly say that part of it was my fault.... Read more »

Wifey Prepares For The Knife

Wifey Prepares For The Knife Well, it has come to this; Wifey is in constant pain from arthritis in her left hip. Her choices are to continue in pain, continue to take painkillers, suffer in silence (not Wifey) or have surgery. Just making the decision isn’t enough. There are those who know someone who has...

Sometimes Heros Will Turn Out To Be Zeros

Disappointment Will Out When you are younger (not necessarily by that much) you select heroes. And sometimes they really disappoint when one learns more about them. Case in point: General George Patton, hero of World War II, leader of the Third Army which helped liberate Europe. Hero. Leader. Bigoted Anti-Semite. What an asshole! Lately it’s... Read more »

EVEN THOUGH WE WON, I STILL HAVE NO LOVE FOR HOAs

EVEN THOUGH WE WON, I STILL HAVE NO LOVE FOR HOAs It’s always interesting to see how the corporate mind works, and even more interesting to see how the little power hungry mind operates. The last blog on our painting situation generated a great deal of response including such comments as: ” I thought all... Read more »

HOA IS A DIRTY WORD IN MY HOUSE!

HOA IS A DIRTY WORD IN MY HOUSE! As a homeowner in Arizona, I’ve learned many things, not all of them wonderful. It frosts my tail (yes, I’m home in f—ing cold Illinois for a grandchild fix – yes, we’re nuts!) to have people I don’t know or don’t care to socialize with tell me... Read more »
