Photo by Norm Colon

If you have been following the recent media coverage of the reported sightings of unidentified flying objects (UFOs), you are probably puzzled by how widespread the reports are.  There were even reported sightings in Oshawa, Ontario and Bedford, Nova Scotia! Although I have not researched the topic, I do have several observations on the subject.… Continue reading UFOs, UAPs, and Heat

Just a Few Quickies

My Holly Golightly

Well, Holly’s health issues continue to increase, and the latest lab report indicates problems with her thyroid and kidneys. The vet indicated she will now require meds for these ailments and the Cushing Disease that she has had for over a year. And to make matters worse, her diarrhea is back – both yesterday and… Continue reading Just a Few Quickies

Seagulls, Beer, and Sparkplugs

Danny (1976) at the cottage

One of the first things I heard when I went outside this morning was the screeching sound of seagulls flying overhead and the smell of the ocean. In fact, it is what I see and feel every time I go outside of my new digs in White Rock. I sound like a person who has… Continue reading Seagulls, Beer, and Sparkplugs

A Musical Interlude

I used to think that… Continue reading One more sleep…

But yesterday, I did something I have never done before in my life. And… Continue reading A Sad Face

A New Lease on Life

My Holly Golightly - she's a Coton de Tulear

Although we had just listed our house on the market last week, it sold in six days.  And for $51,000 more than the list price! The closing date is April 14th, and I had not found a place to live for Holly and me. I will be renting a place to live – for the… Continue reading A New Lease on Life

A Last Goodbye

In February 2018, I wrote my Chasing a Dream story. In the story, I announced that I was separated from my wife Annette, after over forty years of being together. I do not like writing about very personal issues, especially because Annette is a very private person. However, we decided to stay in the home… Continue reading A Last Goodbye

A Beaver Tale

Growing up in the ‘50s and ‘60s was a difficult period for me, but not because I grew up in Canada – the land of the Beaver. I have always loved being Canadian, but not always in love with living here. There were many times, as a teenager, I wished that I lived in the… Continue reading A Beaver Tale
