Some of Cheli’s Shoes Blues

The girls are gone.  Funny thing about being this age.  You know how you’re likely to feel before you feel it.   I knew when I saw Cheli’s shoes on the kitchen floor, pointing in a direction but without a skipper, that I would feel sad when they left.  I do.  But I also knew [...]

Married to Hercules?

Married to Hercules?

We have not had a lot of luck with our washing machine.  Every time a repairman comes to the house the sequence is review, fix, and then as his truck drives up the street, quit working.  I am happy to have a Parking Fairy that adds us in our finding prime parking spots.  I am [...]
