Memories from My Seven-Dog Life

By |August 2, 2022|Categories: Aging, death, Dogs, Family, Love, Mortality, Old Age|Tags: , , , |

Jake, our smiling Corgi and the last chapter of my seven-dog life. When I get to thinking I’m old and approaching senility, I try to remember that in dog years I’m barely ten. In many ways, dogs are like milestones along my life’s journey. A dog’s life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Dogs are over the hill, or under the ground, before they reach 16. When you’re lazy, people accuse you of dogging it.  When you dog someone, you’re [...]

Quarantining with Covid Challenges Your Attention Span

By |July 23, 2022|Categories: Attention Span, COVID-19, Family, Health, Reading, Social Media|Tags: , , , |

Reading can be a challenge to your attention span. Then again, it’s a way to get one back — if you ever had one. Mary and I have another day of isolation before we can venture out into the real world. We both tested positive for Covid earlier this week while on a family vacation at a beautiful home on the shore of Lake Champlain just a handful of miles below the Canadian border. It was a fitting end to a [...]

Odds Improve for Cracking 100-Year Barrier

By |July 1, 2022|Categories: Aging, Baby Boomers, death, Diet, Moderation, Uncategorized|

Is there a difference between old and too old? Looking ahead to becoming a centenarian. Eight years ago, when I was a wet-behind-the-ears age of sixty-six, I wrote about “joining the legions of 90-and-older” one day, which was still almost two dozen years into the future. Well, that one day would have been October 7, 2037, which doesn’t seem so far away now. Therefore, with increasing optimism, I have expanded my goal to breaking the 100-year age barrier and joining the [...]

FOX News Helps Keep Election Lies Alive

By |June 22, 2022|Categories: Conservatives, COVID-19, Fascism, Fox News, Journalism and Writing, Liberals, Politics, Radical Left, Radical Right, Republicans, Treason, Trump|Tags: , , , , |

Roger Ailes transformed FOX News into a voice of Republican conservatism. The whole thing is insulting. In fact, it’s deranged. And we’re not playing along. This is the only hour on an American news channel that will not be carrying their propaganda live. They are lying, and we’re not going to help them do it. —Tucker Carlson, FOX News Commentator on why his network did not cover the opening prime time hearing of the January 6 Committee. What else should we [...]

A Strange Little Word with So Many Issues

By |June 14, 2022|Categories: Language, Synonyms, Vocabulary, Words, Writing|Tags: , , |

Chowing down while the dogs fight over a bone of contention. I’ve spent of good deal of my life dealing with words. We all use them. At least all of us who speak or write, but even illiterate people, who may not know how to spell them, use them, and people who are unable to speak or hear must think them. I think about words and how they came to mean what they do. You use them all the time but [...]

Will We Continue to Ignore History’s Lessons?

By |June 2, 2022|Categories: American History, Evil, Gun Violence, History, Morality, World History, World War I, World War II|Tags: , , , , |

The perceptions of good and evil can be reversed if we can rationalize a cause as moral and righteous. We’ve had it pretty good in this country. We’ve never had a military coup or any usurping of executive functions by the legislature or the military. There was that unfortunate storming of the capitol in a misguided attempt to overturn the 2020 presidential election, but we can write that off a lesson learned. It’s just that we all didn’t learn the same [...]

Discovering a Fading Gem in a Room at the YMCA

As with human triumph and celebrity, the sands of time eventually run out on us all. I was just a young reporter, still in my twenties, when I met Homer Baker.  He was well into his 82nd year, had been blind for more than half of his life and he was living in a sparsely appointed room in the Williamsport YMCA. His vision began to desert him when he was still in his twenties and was totally extinguished before he reached [...]

At Last, Something We All Have in Common!

By |May 5, 2022|Categories: Bad News, death, Fear, Funeral, Mortality|Tags: , , , , , |

Cheer up! We’ve always got death to look forward to. Sometimes we get so caught up in the mean spiritedness of politics and man’s inhumanity to man, which is one male chauvinistic expression feminists don’t seem to mind, that we lose our grasp on humanity and the shared assets and liabilities that make us more similar than different. We cringe through morning updates on the slaughter of innocents in the Ukraine as we brave the tirade of insults, exaggerations and fabrications [...]

They’re Hooked on “A Feeling” about Election Fraud

By |April 20, 2022|Categories: Campaign Rhetoric, Conservatives, Democracy, Donald Trump, Elections, Extremism, Fraud, Germany, Joe Biden, Liberals|Tags: , , , , , |

Winks and nudges to keep the woke mob at bay. The most highly sought state-level office across these United States —27 state races with 119 Republican and Democratic candidates from Alabama to Wyoming as we approach the dreaded 2022 Primary Elections—is that of Secretary of State. It is a battle for control of our democratic process—namely, the sanctity of our votes—with Republican Conservative candidates blatantly anointing Trump as the party savior while continuing to promulgate the election lie that has been [...]
