Shaun Cassidy at Hoyt Sherman Place June 17th, 2022

Last month an old friend and I made a 4 hour trek through nothing but cornfields to see our preteen crush - Shaun Cassidy - perform at the Hoyt Sherman Place theater. We caught the June 17th show. I don't remember which came first - Shaun the pop music sensation or The Hardy Boys. Seems to me they both happened at the same time. It

Potato Chip Cookies

This is the perfect summer time cookie. It's light, fresh and has that not so secret ingredient that will keep people asking for more. I learned of this cookie recently while visiting friends in Mineral Wells - a small town I lived for a year with my parents and brother when my father was in the army. A dear family friend had passed away -

On the Passing of a Dear Family Friend

Last night I learned that a dear friend of the family had passed away. Dear friend of the family does not even begin to describe what an impact this person had on my family, but the English language doesn't seem to have a better way to describe someone who is family, yet not related by blood or marriage. If you are lucky enough, fate will provide

I Over Did It with a Can Opener

Yesterday, in a flurry of energy I decided to make chicken chili. Ok, I didn't have much energy my shoulder was a bit achy from traveling and the change in weather, but I had thawed chicken so I really didn't have much choice - I had to make something with it and chicken chili seemed like a good idea on a cold day. You know

My Thoughts on the Super Bowl Halftime Show

If you're wondering what my thoughts on the Super Bowl Halftime show are, you've come to the right place. Grab a beverage of choice, sit a spell and I'll share my thoughts with you on this generally divisive topic. As most of you know I am not a football fan. I'm not against it, I just didn't grow up watching it. My dad preferred Opera

How to Prepare for a Devastating Injury

When I broke my shoulder I wasn't prepared. I never thought I'd injure myself in such a way that I would need to so much assistance from my kids and good friends. I am fortunate to have people to help me, but I wish I had been more prepared for such a devastating injury. A fractured shoulder takes a long time to heal - upwards

Day 47 – Broken Shoulder Update

I've not bothered with daily updates on my shoulder because the improvement is so incremental, sometimes not at all noticeable, other times it is as if I have gone backwards with recuperation of this blasted broken shoulder. Today is Day 47 so time for a broken shoulder update! I just returned from Orlando, FL last night. I spent the day traveling and am surprised my

Taking a Social Media Break

I had my first physical therapy session for my broken shoulder today. I was eager to get started stretching and strengthening the muscles in my arm which haven't been used much in the last month. I was excited to get my range of motion back and get on with life. While I knew recovery would take some time, I figured once PT started recovery would

Should Whoopi Have Been Suspended?

Whoopi has been suspended for two weeks. This past Monday the women on The View were discussing the Tennessee school district's decision to pull the graphic novel Maus from the 8th grade curriculum. The school board objected to eight curse words and nude imagery of a woman. The women of The View had to weigh in on this book banning (spoiler - it is not banned)
