April 2015

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, make yourself comfortable. How are you? I'm having a hard time getting revved up for today, but it's probably because I've got another dentist appointment this afternoon. It's pretty cloudy outside right now, but the birds are still having a pleasant conversation in the Clutter Tree. I asked BDH and Little Buddha if they understand what the birds are saying, but the two of them just looked at me and shrugged. They may not speak bird, but they do make a mean pot of coffee, so help yourself to a nice medium DD,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, make yourself comfortable. BDH and Little Buddha are excited to see yo! We were all just looking out the window, wondering if the birds will be coming to hang out in the Clutter Tree at some point today. Until then, the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter! I had an even to be at last night, so I missed the Boston Red Sox losing 11-8 to the Toronto Blue Jays behind another poor performance by Clay Buchholz. The Boston starter gave... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. I'm sorry it's so cold in here. I just turned the heat up, so hopefully that will kick in soon. In all of my excitement about the arrival of spring, I forgot that April can still be pretty chilly. The Northern Estate garden is off to a good start, I think. Most of the obvious stuff has been cut back/raked, and now I just need to find someone to point out what's left to remove, and what should be left right where it is. I swear I watched the grass...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How was your weekend? I had a great time working in the Northern Estate garden, but holy cow, I'm utterly crippled right now. I guess it's going to take me a little while to get back into peak gardening condition this year. Anyway, it's the start of a new week, and we've got plenty of news to get through. The coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter! Let's just get this one over with: The Boston Red Sox lost... Read more →

Sunday Night Clutter: Time in the Garden

"And times when you're all alone, All you do is think" Bon Jovi, "Wanted Dead or Alive" I found myself singing along (at full volume) to Jon Bon Jovi and company on the radio on my way to the Northern Estate yesterday. I can't help it, "Wanted Dead or Alive," is my most favorite karaoke song. Ask anyone who's ever seen my rendition of it. They'll tell you, it's a performance and a half. Turns out I had plenty of time to think this weekend, because gardening season has officially begun! First things first, we clear out the clutter from... Read more →

Classic Clutter: Heard on the Bus

Hi everyone, I find myself in another bout of remembering not to take life or people for granted and remembering that both have the potential to surprise you for the better! I also wonder where this guy is right now. Originally published December 30, 2010. Saturday, August 21, 2010, between 3-4pm on the 57 bus heading from Brighton Center to Kenmore. Man and a woman are sitting together on the bus. The man looks to be in his early 20's, wearing a tight black t-shirt, bald, short, and built like a fire hydrant. The woman is roughly the same age,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Saturday to you all! We made it through another week, good for us! Yesterday was a slightly odd day at Clutter Headquarters. Right after we were done hanging out, I found out that a guy I played Little League with died in a car accident. I don't know the details, except that it was on I-93 at an exit I've used and driven by many times. My heart goes out to his family and friends (including our former classmates), and I was once again reminded that we are not promised a single minute... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Wow, it's cold in here. Let me turn the heat on, I'll be right back...Okay, hopefully things will warm up soon. Happy Friday to you all. Is everybody ready for the weekend? Oh, BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's close out the week with a little Clutter. The good news is that Clay Buchholz had a strong outing for the Boston Red Sox against the Tampa Bay Rays last night, giving up just one run over six... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Happy Wednesday to you all. It's a sunny morning here at Clutter Headquarters (though it seems to be a little chillier than yesterday), and the birds are chirping up a storm in the Clutter Tree. I don't know if they're having a party in there or just giving each other a traffic report, but they're certainly off to an active start today. BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter! I don't know what happened... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. Happy Earth Day, by the way. How's your week going so far? No complaints on this end, apart from a slightly-off sleep schedule. On the other hand, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping in the Clutter Tree, and BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so it's all good. Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter! The Boston Red Sox beat the Tampa Bay Rays 1-0 in a well-pitched game last night. Boston starter Wade Miley gave up just... Read more →
