WEDNESDAY, JUNE 28, 2017 This morning before finishing my first cup of coffee, Don hands me his iPad. "Pick one," he says. It's open to a scrolling list of shower curtains on Amazon. In response to my bewildered look, he says, "Ours is disgusting." I burst out laughing. HASHTAG TRUTH #TRUTH. More truth telling, I [...]

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 21, 2017 For about six months, we've been chasing a leak. Inexplicably, our water bill more than doubled. We checked spigots, toilets, everything we could imagine. Recently, I decided to install hangers for the water hoses around the outdoor hydrants. We dug into the ground around one hydrant and hit mud. Ah ha! [...]
TUESDAY, JUNE 20, 2017 Spent most of the day in a seminar with work colleagues. It was interesting, but always the best part is spending time with folks outside our normal routine. We were in the OLLI building in Patrick Square. A nice place but freezing. I was so very cold all day. Finally, I [...]
MONDAY, JUNE 19, 2017 Quick trip to the local grocery store. This is what I saw in the parking lot. No commentary, just here to record -- under the heading #WTF And that is all for today.....
