September 2017

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It looks like rain is in the forecast for today, so I guess I won't have to schedule a garden watering this week. What I do have to start planning for is raking up the leaves. Hmmm....anyway, sorry it's a little chilly in here, but BDH and Little Buddha have a fresh pot of coffee ready to go to help you warm up. Grab yourself a nice medium DD, and for the last time in September, let's clear out some Saturday Clutter. The Boston Red Sox lost... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! I guess fall is finally here for real now, huh? I guess that's fair, since it's almost October. Part of me doesn't love the dropping temperatures. However, the rest of me almost cried tears of joy last night when I was finally able to get to sleep without issue because it was the first time this week the bedroom wasn't a sauna. Even BDH and Little Buddha slept better. Speaking of our dynamic duo, they're telling me that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Friday...

A Little Distance Goes a Long Way

I see you coming, October. The calendar says October 1 is on Sunday. That means sometime in the next week is the four-year anniversary of the beginning of the nightmare that ended with my mom's death four months later. I used to be able to tell you off the top of my head the specific date that I got that first phone call. Now, I'm beyond grateful that it's not immediately coming to me, but man, did it take a lot of work to get here. Maybe there will be a day down the road when I'll get into more... Read more →


Hi everyone! Before we get to today's headlines, this is a big day at Clutter Headquarters, because this is our 3000th post! Crazy, right? BDH, Little Buddha, and I are pleased as punch to have hit this milestone, and we plan on celebrating all day. (That most likely translates into some extra coffee, Van Halen playing on the radio, and maybe a cookie.) Let's do a little quick math: 3000 posts at a conservative 90 minutes per post works out to 4500 hours, which then translates to 187.5 days. Basically, we've written for the equivalent of six months without a... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your week going so far? Looks like we're in for another pretty warm day today. It makes for some slightly difficult sleeping, but it also allows a few more flowers to grow in the garden, and it will be cold soon enough. Of course, there's one thing you can always count on, not matter what the weather: BDH and Little Buddha just made you a fresh pot of our finest coffee! (Nothing but the best for you folks.) Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter! The Boston Red... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Things are fine on this end at the moment. As expected, my back has mostly recovered from the weekend, so I'm not hobbling around anymore. A little annoyed about last night's Red Sox game, but BDH and Little Buddha have encouraged me to keep it in perspective and to focus on more important things like hanging out with them, and you, of course. Their wisdom knows no bounds. They're smart, and they make great coffee. Speaking of which, there's a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD,... Read more →


This was shaping up to be a somewhat quiet week around here, but thankfully Titan Comics is back with the latest chapter in their Doctor Who: The Lost Dimension series! (For a full recap to-date, click here.) We've got mysterious white holes popping up all over the universe, consuming everything in their path, and the Doctor keeps running into his past selves as he and his companions try to figure out what's going on. Let's see where Part 4 (on sale this week) takes us: The latest chapter of this saga finds us focusing on the 11th Doctor and companion... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're moving a bit slowly at the moment here today, but that should hopefully resolve itself pretty soon. As longtime Clutterheads know, I help Dad Clutter park cars during the big NASCAR races in New Hampshire, and yesterday was the big fall race. (Actually, it was the last big fall race here, but that's another story.) It's a fun time hanging out with his regular customers, and yesterday seemed to go by particularly quickly. However, it's always challenging on the feet to stand on that uneven surface for hours, and that ends up... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I had a brain cramp and showed up to yesterday's dentist appointment about an hour late. However, there was still enough time to confirm that I need to schedule gum surgery soon. Sweet. It won't be for at least a few weeks from now, but the dentist gave me the post-surgery care sheet anyway. I gave it to BDH and Little Buddha when I got back. It's unclear where hot beverages fit into this, but their eyes got big when they realized we might have to skip... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? It's a gloomy Friday here at the moment. First off, it's raining, although that's always good for the Clutter tree. Second, yours truly has...has...has a dentist appointment. I should know better than to schedule these things for the end of the day on a Friday. That's no way to end a week! Oh well, might as well get it over with. BDH and Little Buddha assure me that everything will be fine and they'll find something else for me to drink for a little while if needed. (They're far too good to me.)... Read more →
