Make it Two Spaces, Bartender

Just when I thought I was cool and hangin' with the hipsters for once, they went ahead and changed the rules on me. Again. I do try to stay up with trends and follow the rules which experts say will keep me safe: I'm careful about not connecting to suspicious-looking WiFi, we change the kitchen … Continue reading Make it Two Spaces, Bartender

Down is Not Very Far

I received some disturbing news recently about someone I know who has depleted all of their savings. It wasn't a surprise; the behavior they've displayed over the last several years was marked by a complete lack of discipline along with a profound and reckless disregard for consequences. A devil-may-care attitude, if you will. Although the … Continue reading Down is Not Very Far

Day Visit to Savannah

  We made a day visit to Savannah this week for its music festival (currently running there until April 14th). One of my favorite jazz artists is Hammond B3 organ great Dr. Lonnie Smith, and he was appearing with his trio for two evening performances and one earlier in the day. Although the lure of … Continue reading Day Visit to Savannah

Cabernet Sauvignon, BMW’s, and Knee Replacements: Rock On!

With a few exceptions, the musical groups I enjoy now are the same as when I was younger. They're like a few old, comfortable flannel shirts still hanging in the closet. I can't imagine tossing them, and it's not even like I wear them very often. I just want the comfort of knowing they're still … Continue reading Cabernet Sauvignon, BMW’s, and Knee Replacements: Rock On!

Degrees of Separation

Today your humble blogger is walking a very thin line. I desperately want to employ one of my patented displays of imbecilic foolishness, but instead find myself under a rare case of self-censorship. I've even had to change the title of this post four times already to avoid offending. Not making the cut were "I Spent … Continue reading Degrees of Separation

Saved in the Waiting Room

So have you heard the Good News?!! Salvation is unexpectedly and inexplicably at my door. I'm suddenly born again and been given a righteous path away from damnation. Praise the lord! Yes, my friends, I'm saved. It took me by surprise too. There I was earlier in the week, happily sinning and contemplating the vagaries of retirement-friendly … Continue reading Saved in the Waiting Room

Thoughts and Prayers: An Unhealthy Normal

I'm a news junkie. I follow events pretty much all day long as I go from one activity to the next, and I read from sources that are derisively labeled by some as mainstream. The whole term "mainstream media" during the last decade or so is an example of this cultural divide which is separating … Continue reading Thoughts and Prayers: An Unhealthy Normal

Keeping The Cookie Jar Full During Early Retirement

Against all her better instincts, not to mention I assume a clause in her blogger's liability insurance coverage, Donna over at Retirement Reflections has once again asked me to write a guest post. Please join the party there as I discuss the all important topic of eating cookies. Or... something remotely related to that anyway. … Continue reading Keeping The Cookie Jar Full During Early Retirement
