Doctors, Dogs, and Veterinarians

Holly at 4 months

I went for my physical exam yesterday, and I really like my new doctor. She weighed me, and I was 152 lbs. I cannot remember ever weighing less than 165 lbs. That was when I was in high school. The doctor spent a lot of time with me, and her interview was in-depth. She has… Continue reading Doctors, Dogs, and Veterinarians

Dream Catcher

On April 20, 2021, I decided to find another dream to chase at Tiffany’s store in Vancouver. Readers of this site may recall my My Holly Golightly and Audrey Hepburn story, which I wrote in 2008 and later updated in 2012. It might surprise you to learn that I have continued to dream about Audrey… Continue reading Dream Catcher

A Memory Scan

You probably wonder where I have been for the past few weeks and what I have been doing. Answer:  Scanning hundreds of photographs from albums.

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

Helmets, Dogs, and Orchids

Last night, before I went to bed, I briefly talked with my two new orchids. I told them to get acquainted with each other and try to like each other, despite the difference in their color. I felt kind of silly, but several friends told me that orchids require lots of love and attention.  And… Continue reading Helmets, Dogs, and Orchids

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.

Another POETS Acronym

But today, my Holly Golightly gave a new… Continue reading Another POETS Acronym
