Mini Mish Mash


Way back, I invented selfies. I'm sure of it. Here are JB and I at a wedding last month. It was a wild wedding with lots of drinking and loose tongues. I don't drink and JB did. When we were ready to leave, I turned my head for a quick moment and found her dancing wildly, hands over head, sandwiched between two grinding men. I told her she was too old to be a grindee or grinder. 


It was a big leap to move to Provincetown. But now I love being here. We've fixed up our house to our liking and it's cozy. The bay is a block away. The neighbors are great. I sit on the couch looking at this view more hours than I should admit. I write on the couch. I watch the news, I eat snacks, I read books, I play games on my phone. I have to force myself to get up and move. Which means I could be a sedentary slug if I'm not careful.  


This cracks me up. I am on record predicting that Trump will not win a second term. His erratic instability has hit home with the Republicans who ignore and cover for him, but it's at a point where history will not treat them well if they allow him to continue to hurt the country.


And my family. I couldn't love them more. This week we learned that Logan, age 8, has petit mal epilepsy. He has to take medication for the next few years and there's a good chance he'll outgrow the seizures. Even though we expect that his day to day life won't be limited, the diagnosis hurts my heart. He's a very swell kid.

Happy October, everyone. The leaves are changing color.

  1. The two of you look so happy in that first photo, love it. I also hope that Trump is pulled down by his own antics and his own party. There must be some sane people left in Washington. The emperor has no clothes.

    1. deb, I'm shocked by the Republican Senate, that they would allow anyone to dismantle our 3 branches of government. I'm praying for a good ending, but the country's been hurt.

      thanks for your always kind words. I hope you and the big guy are fine.

  2. Sounds like a lovely life. I think being present in the moment is my theme now. Like being REALLY alive. One thing though, never to old to grind!

    Lovelovelove,

  4. Okay, that story about JB (oops - almost typed the name!) dancing made me laugh out loud. Great photo of the two of you.

    I sure hope you're right about the Dotard.

  6. You should have seen her, CS. I chastised her :^)

    What is it going to take with Trump? These Republicans are going to have some pretty heavy karma ahead.
