Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's pretty cloudy outside right now, and the forecast calls for some steady (and at times heavy) rain later today until tomorrow morning. Happy Tuesday! Once that clears up, it sounds like the temperatures are going to start dropping a bit. Part of me is okay with that, because I'd like the ground to freeze so the squirrels will stop digging up the garden for their nuts. The other part of me thinks that mindset is going to last for about 10 minutes once we hit the... Read more →


Confession: We're starting to think about baseball around here. Yes, it's true, it's not even December, Tom Brady and company are gearing up for another Super Bowl run, and baseball doesn't begin for months. However, the first sign of the new season is on its way: The 2018 Boston Red Sox spring training tickets go on sale at 10am ET on Saturday, December 2. A trip to spring training is a perfect holiday gift for the Red Sox fan in your life. There's nothing like escaping the cold winter weather to enjoy a game or two at JetBlue Park. There...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Things are fine here at the moment. BDH and Little Buddha continue to try to take my mind off Friday's trip to the dentist. I better find some soft foods when I go to the grocery store this week. Other than that, I'm amazed once again how quickly November has gone by. The last week in particular feels like it was about two days long. In any case, we're plugging away. I hear that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Does anyone else think this week went by quickly? It feels like it was just Monday morning around here, and now we're thinking about the weekend. At this rate, if we blink twice, it will suddenly be December. Anyway, BDH and Little Buddha just announced that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Friday Clutter. All good things must come to an end, right? Apparently no one mentioned that to the Boston Celtics, who beat the Golden... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Any big plans for the weekend? It's a little weird to not have the Red Sox or the Patriots on the schedule. I suppose there's some more yard work to be done, but I'll have to take another look at the ongoing to-do list to see what else is on tap. Oh, don't forgot to turn your clocks back on Sunday. BDH and Little Buddha could certainly use an extra hour of sleep, but that also means it gets dark even earlier. Well, at least it's still unseasonably warm.... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's your week going? Everything is fine on this end at the moment. We're already done with the leftover Halloween candy, so that's good. It will give BDH and Little Buddha some time to enjoy a healthy diet until the holiday season kicks in full swing. In the meantime, they say that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Thursday Clutter. Congratulations to the Houston Astros who beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 in Game 7 of the World Series last night. It's the first championship... Read more →


October is off to a slightly bumpy start so far. First, the smoke detector is still periodically chirping (though it's been quiet for a while now), but I don't want to pay $50 just to have a technician paged to come look at it on a Sunday. That was followed by this exchange when I walked into my local Dunkin' this morning... DD employee #1: Hi, what can I get you? Me: Hi, I'd like a medium iced coffee with two milks and two sugars. DD employee #1: (reaches for hot coffee cup) Me: Sorry, that's an iced coffee. DD... 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...

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? Things are generally okay on this end at the moment. I was out for three straight nights this week, so I'm pretty sure I've used up all of my social activity energy for the remainder of the year. That's fair, right? Well, there are still a couple of Red Sox games left, but other than that, I'll see everyone again in 2018. Obviously I'm just kidding...probably. Of course, BDH, Little Buddha and I will still be here to sort through the headlines with all of you, so that counts as being social, right?... Read more →
