Would You Mind?

That leaf is awfully bothersome, could you lend a hand? Nature has its moments, or perhaps it’s just me having mine, but I found these images rather funny. Even bird couples appear to have their spats. Not so funny is the amount of working I’m facing, having unloaded the RV. This is just a glimpse: […]

When is a door not a door?

When it’s art.  (My father loved this joke, only his answer was always: When it’s ajar.) Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is funny.  Humour is subjective, and I tend to be a little warped, but I found this self-defeating licence plate funny: I’ve posted this picture before, and every time I see it, I […]

Never Sleep With a Laptop

Went to sleep with my laptop by my side.  Big mistake! Casually pushed it into the spot normally occupied by my husband, but as he is away, it was so easy to do.  Didn’t give it another thought. Never imagined that an object, so inanimate, would nudge me all night, invade my dreams and plea […]

“Are You Brother and Sister?”

“Are you guys brother and sister?”  the question came from our soon-to-be five-year-old granddaughter.  Dropped off by her mother for an overnight stay, we had a day of cousins and uncles and aunts, and of course, Grandma and Grandpa. I brushed off her comment with a:  “No, we’re married”, but the innocent observation shook me. […]

See It From Disability’s Side

If you’ve ever wondered what living with a disability feels like, imagine this:  Judgment is your constant companion.  Family, friends, and even total strangers will suddenly feel entitled to express opinions about your condition, lack of trying, mental attitude, the latest trends in healing, and so on.  You may be berated for using a handicap […]
