How Do You Say Equal In French?

No, I didn’t go river rafting or rock climbing or skeet shooting. My sense of accomplishment came from single-handedly getting a sitter. Yes, I found a responsible, experienced, college sophomore, who didn’t have a date on Saturday night. Unfortunately, her boyfriend comes back from National Guard duty next week; but we had her for Saturday […]

Have You Wanted To Be Free As The Wind?

There’s that time of year – which can be any time of year – I want to drop everything, have someone take over my responsibilities and feel as free as the wind. During childhood this is known as the running-away-to-join-the-circus syndrome. During adulthood it’s known as fantasy – fantasy that’s fed by the get-away ads […]

Can You Compare Apples And Oranges?

An adage is a time-tested truism, but some adages don’t ad up anymore. “A penny saved is a penny earned” has deflated in meaning because of inflation. “Penny-wise and pound foolish” is an English adage. Here it would be more effective as an ad for Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig. Another truism about money is […]

Do Clothes Horses Wear Polo Shirts?

If clothes make the man, dressing for success is done one pant leg at a time. A scientist needs a white lab coat. Both male and female executives need to be well coiffed in tailored suits, but the female executive has a chip on her shoulder from hitting her head on the glass ceiling. Politicians, […]

What Couldn’t You Do Without?

Post-its – what would I do without post-its? The older I get, the more I need them. Although they come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, the basic, yellow square covers everything for me – literally. Post-its are on the refrigerator, of course; but they can also be found on my computer, the […]

Is It A Rule?

“Don’t put that in your mouth”. “Don’t touch”. Our lives begin with rules and the amount of rules grows as we grow. As soon as I could walk, I heard, “Don’t run in the house”. On one occasion, however, my mother ran. Actually, she was chasing my sisters and me with a water pistol; and […]

Three Good and True Rat Stories

All three of these are true; I couldn’t have made them up. I was an eye witness to all three and even ate some of number three. If you are a little queasy, you might want to read these accounts a bit later when your system has settled down. Rat Story #1 ocurred recently after […]

How Green Is Your Thumb?

Eve got kicked out of the Garden of Eden and I took that as a sign not to garden. My not having even a pale green thumb was a sign from Mother Nature I wasn’t meant to garden. Not so with my husband. He was born to garden. He was born with green hands. When […]

Is A House Modeled Before It’s Remodeled?

Remodeling, unfortunately, doesn’t mean Christie Brinkley and Cindy Crawford are going to start modeling again. What it means is something which started out as a “wouldn’t-it-be-nice-to” turns into a “when-will-it-ever-be-done”. First, if you can, move out. If that’s not possible, join the club. There are no dues to pay. By giving up your privacy, daily […]

Are You Running On Automatic?

What a difference a day makes – unless you’re going through life on automatic. Scientists are no help. They say we shouldn’t sleep late even if we have the chance. Supposedly not getting up at the same time every day has a negative effect on our biorhythms. Obviously, those scientists don’t have young children. I […]
