This is What 60 Looks Like

This is What 60 Looks Like
TumblrEmailOther Share Options

I’ve never been one to lie about my age. I’m beginning to consider it, but I don’t think I’m fooling anybody. It’s hard to get used to how I look as I get older. I think we all feel this way, at least around a milestone birthday. Maybe when I turn 61 it won’t hit […]

Ceci n’est pas une cheinne sur un divan

Ceci n’est pas une cheinne sur un divan

A cold is like a mosquito. It’s not the worst thing in the world but it’s an annoyance, and it usually comes along with a lot of other mosquitos to bite your friends and family. If a normal mosquito bites you it raises an itchy bump. If a bad mosquito gets you, you’ve got malaria. […]

Better than a Kegger

Better than a Kegger

Back when I was in college, when you wanted to have a party you purchased a keg of beer and some plastic cups, then played LPs until everyone passed out on the sofa. That was fun, but I wanted to host a more grown-up party for the official launch of my book, Act As If: Stumbling Through […]

Best Laid Plans

Best Laid Plans

When Birthday Month began I made a pledge: “I’m going to have a minimum of one adventure each week,” I said, “and I’ll tell you about my adventures here…an adventure is something I haven’t done before.” Today’s post is about best laid plans. For Birthday Week, and I mean for my actual birthday, John had […]

Friends (Birthday Month Adventure #3)

Friends (Birthday Month Adventure #3)

When I decided to have an adventure each week during birthday month, I hadn’t realized how hard it would be to include adventures in my schedule. I defined an adventure as something I hadn’t done before, which alleviates the pressure somewhat. All I had to do was go to a library branch I hadn’t visited […]

Wilma: the Report

Wilma: the Report

Wilma has been living with us for 9 months. We’re a family. I remember this with Boz, the feeling that his presence transformed us from a couple into a family. But we’re a different family with Wilma because Wilma is a different person. She’s more rambunctious (gross understatement), though only a few months younger than […]

Southwest Museum

Southwest Museum

The Southwest Museum is another place I’ve always wanted to visit but hadn’t until Birthday Adventure Month. Maybe always wanting to go but never having gone is one of my unconscious criteria for an adventure. I’m determined to have at least one adventure per week this month. It’s not easy to schedule adventures! I’m so […]

Pasadena History

Pasadena History

If you’re a Pasadena history afficionado, two new exhibits at the Pasadena Museum of History are for you. Try your wits against Ann Erdman, who curated the Mystery History exhibit. She poses the question, “Where are we? And what’s happening?” pairing photos and items from the Museum’s collection. You know this one, surely? I hadn’t […]

E. Waldo Ward Ranch

E. Waldo Ward Ranch

  This 1902 barn is the most well-known view of the E. Waldo Ward Ranch, the first of my birthday month adventures. The tower is where they stored their weekly water delivery back then.   I hadn’t seen photos of the house before. I don’t know if you can tell from this photo but this […]
