Flab Workouts, Mechanical Bulls, and a Trip to the Gyno

I have the best girlfriends on the planet. The Best. These gals are my rock, the women I text at any time of the day or night when I think I might go over the edge, the women who came to the hospital when I was pushing my babies out of my girl parts. They have seen me from all angles, literally, and they still love me....more

I Laugh, You Laugh, We All Laugh

Once, when I was a teenager, there was this woman who had just gotten a two-scoop ice cream cone from one of the ice cream shops in the mall. As she was walking away from the counter and started to take that first scrumptious lick, the two scoops flopped right out of her cone onto the floor....more

Loosening up the knots

I had really rough back pain this week, and then when the orthopedic physician said about arthritis working in the equation, well, the pain in the head worrying about it was almost matching the pain in my lower back.I forgot one thing. Flip fitness class....more

Laughter in the middle of panic

Finally, we’re off after a mad dash to pack for our 1 night camping trip. We’re always packed for camping since we have storage tubs ready to go with camping supplies. We arrive at our destination a couple of hours away and find…flies. Flies and more flies; we feel like Pigpen from the Peanuts comic strip because as we move the flies move. Yuck! Despite the flies, I place a tarp down in an appropriate flat spot and go back to the pickup for the tent....more


It's raining again.  I am sitting here watching the rain and listening to its beat on the deck roof.  And wherever I go, Sheba has to go, of course. She is happily listening along with me....more

Uphill Both Ways

I'm a walker - I love walking,enough so that when I moved to the mountains of Arizona, I sold my car.  Fortunately, I live within blocks of Prescott's lovely Downtown area and a grocery store and Walgreen's so life is easy. What's NOT so easy is my walk  home as it is partially uphill on a pretty good grade. (This blog's title comes from the odd but true fact that leaving my home, I must walk uphill a half block to get to the downhill portion)....more

New Road

There comes an age when the calendar and your own lifestyle don't align. Another birthday, a year one thought little about unless Paul McCartney was singing about some time way in the future. WAY in the future.And suddenly, my friend, it is here and whether you lie about your age or simply avoid the subject with a swift sidestep, we know - even without former classmates or even your children there to remind you....more

Wednesday Quotables: Laughter

Humour Helps every situation. Come laugh away the winter blues and stress and strain of living.“If we couldn’t laugh we would all go insane.” Robert Frost.“The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter.”  Mark Twain. “Laughter is the sound of the soul dancing....more

Laugh Until You're Broken

 I am tucked against him so that his heart beats against my cheek and we fit just like you should after fifteen years.  It is better when he's here, when I don't have to sleep on his side because I miss him, though I dare say the very nature of our strange scheduling is what breeds our good because in the missing there is wanting and in the wanting love stays young....more
