MEMO: To All Cats

It has come to my attention that many house cats are content with staying inside and do not know how to escape the constrictive nature of a life indoors. Therefore, as an experienced feline with many breakout skills and years of practice, I feel it is my duty to share some of the techniques I have learned.  FULL STORY


Pumpkin Eater

Autumn has arrived, time for falling leaves, apple cider, and especially for those orange orbs that seem to invade all aspects of life at this time of year… pumpkins. I think pumpkins are great as a fall decoration and make a lovely jack-o-lantern. But pumpkins are not content to remain where they belong. They have jumped the garden wall. FULL STORY


Trash in the Attic

A few weeks ago I wrote about all the junk in my attic. I've been working on cleaning out the stash of trash that sneaked up the stairs when I was either gone to work or too sick to care. Yes, I will admit it, some of it is my stuff too, but most belongs to other people.  FULL STORY


Hoarders' Heaven

My joy over having a clean house was short lived after cleaning the cabinets, closets, garage and anything else that was cluttered. I soon realized that the downstairs was only a minor part of the mess driving me crazy. I think I must have an obsessive-compulsive disorder. FULL STORY



Helpful Service at the Hardware Store

The other day I went to Home Depot and several associates actually asked me if I needed help. In the past I have suspected them of avoiding customers because they don't know where anything is either. Maybe they are trying to improve customer service?



This Gnat is Making Me Crazy

This gnat is making me crazy Every time I sit down at the computer, this gnat flies between me and the screen, right in my face. It is really hard to type and swat at a gnat. I end up with a lot of left-handed words like sdcftfa (swat) xxsstr (swat) fdfsee.  FULL STORY



I Know a Short Cut

It has sometimes been said that men get lost because they refuse to stop and ask for directions. However, the GPS and directions from a cell phone have now made it possible for men to avoid the embarrassment of asking and make it possible to find a destination without getting lost. FULL STORY


War of the Hoses

Last year I decided I was tired of my old garden hose that leaked and had been repaired several times. I went to the hardware store and bought a fancy new hose, 100 feet long and heavy duty. I also got a new nozzle, the metal kind that does not break all the time and squirt water in your face. FULL STORY



A Woman's Work

Since I retired from my job, I've been a virtual whirlwind of activity. I don't know why I am in a hurry. After all, as Honey keeps reminding me, ”You can do it tomorrow.”  I think my many years of hurry and stress has become a habit and carried over to my home life. I don't know how to slow down. FULL STORY



Dishwasher Distress

About seven months ago, my old black dishwasher drew its last breath and passed on to appliance heaven, or wherever it is that old dishwashers go. It was replaced with a shiny new stainless steel Maytag from hhgreg with more buttons than I could count. FULL STORY



Love It or List It

My daughter recorded a bunch of TV shows for me to watch that she thought I might like. One of the shows with multiple episodes was called "Love It or List It." A real estate agent tries to find a new dream home within a budget and persuade a couple to move while a decorator completely remodels their old home to entice them to stay. After watching a dozen episodes, I began to notice all the things wrong with my home that needed changing in order for me to love it.  FULL STORY
