Covers Worth Hearing

Last year, I watched an Asian young man singing a Jim Reeves classic, which almost brought me to tears. It is a beautiful Jim Reeves song, and the cover is performed by Jajai Singsit, from North East India. His voice is a loving tribute to Jim Reeves, his idol. I posted the video last year… Continue reading Covers Worth Hearing

Friends and Passersby

A year or two after my cancer treatments ended in 2009, I got an urge to write about my cancer. At the time, I was hopeful that I would survive cancer and live my remaining days in reasonable health. However, before starting my chemotherapy and radiation therapy, my oncologists indicated that I only had a… Continue reading Friends and Passersby

Now I Know…

My new bike (used)

I Now Know… That the Covid19 pandemic created a new market for the manufacturers of plastic dividers for social distancing. That many stores now offer a store pickup option.  You order online and then drive to the store to pick up the item(s).  There is no need to walk through the store looking for the… Continue reading Now I Know…

Another POETS Acronym

Regular readers of this site are already familiar with my original POETS acronym story – Piss On Everything Tomorrow’s Saturday! It was something to remember on Fridays – especially the Fridays that were not going well. Essentially, it gave hope that tomorrow will be a better day. But today, my Holly Golightly gave a new… Continue reading Another POETS Acronym

Holly’s Boo Boo

Holly Golightly hiding behind Danny

Although it was not Friday the 13th, it sure felt like it was. It used to be that Friday was a cause for celebration because it signaled the beginning of the weekend.  And kids going to school and their working parents all look forward to the best workday of the week. But after you retire,… Continue reading Holly’s Boo Boo

A Sad Face

Normally, I have no problem finding something to muse and write about, but only if I think my readers would find it interesting.  And although my life is far from being boring or uneventful – I have not felt much like writing. But yesterday, I did something I have never done before in my life. And… Continue reading A Sad Face

Want, Wanted, and Wanting

There are three wants in life: want wanted and wanting.  But you already knew that – so let me explain why I am writing a post about them. Want When you need something – it is a want.  It does not matter what it costs, and it does not matter if you can afford to buy it… Continue reading Want, Wanted, and Wanting

A Very Happy Thanksgiving Day

Before I begin my Thanksgiving Day story, I want to announce a very special friend’s 81st birthday today. It’s ironic that my buddy Norm Colon (the southern Norm), gets to celebrate three special occasions today – because he lives in the USA and they celebrate Columbus Day.  Their Thanksgiving Day isn’t until next month. So,… Continue reading A Very Happy Thanksgiving Day

Saturday on the Sunshine Coast

About three weeks ago, Sannie and I planned a day trip to the Sunshine Coast and had a reservation for the 7:30 am ferry to Langdale.  We needed to be at the ferry terminal at Horseshoe Bay by 7:00 am, so I was at her place at 5:30 yesterday morning to pick her up. I… Continue reading Saturday on the Sunshine Coast

Because

All good things must come to an end ‘because’ of something. I received a renewal notice from the website hosting company that provides me with this platform to tell my stories. I’ve been writing here for almost a decade but now find it challenging to write about happy things. And although there is a seemingly… Continue reading Because
