Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How's your week going? No complaints on this end. Still have a few errands to take care of before the weekend gets here, but nothing major. The birds are chirping something fierce at the moment. They must be as excited as the rest of us that the leaves are coming back on the Clutter Tree. BDH and Little Buddha tell me that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out a little Thursday Clutter, shall we? We shall. As the Big Papi... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Had a bit of an odd sleep here last night. There were multiple dreams (one unpleasant and two odd), but other than that, it felt like I was awake for most of the night, yet I'm not tired. No idea what that's about, but BDH and Little Buddha tell me not to worry about it, so we move forward. They also tell me that we have some fresh coffee ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter! Just in case you were wondering, the Boston...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Yesterday's day-long rain would have been a drag, except that I kept looking out the window at all of the green (as well as a little bit of blue and purple) that was popping up in the garden. My friends are coming back to play for another year! That's about as much as I ask for out of 2016. Well, that and for this crazy wind to settle down. Okay, I also need a bit of coffee. Fortunately, we've got a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I hope everyone who celebrates Easter enjoyed it. The chocolate is already gone here, which is good. BDH and Little Buddha got themselves a bit revved up, but there were no stomach aches, and everyone fell asleep without a problem, so we'll call it a win. Now it's time to start a new week, and see what's going on in the world, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Monday Clutter. If we're reading the calendar correctly. and we think we are, the Boston Red Sox start... Read more →

Skidmore on my Mind

I had Skidmore College on my mind for most of Saturday. It just seemed to keep popping up everywhere I turned: My 20th class reunion is coming up in June, and I'm probably not going. Ignoring the fact that I can't process that it's been that long since graduation, I can't get excited about a weekend of nothing but trading, "How have you been?" stories. I wouldn't mind hearing about what others have been up to (besides what Facebook tells me), but I don't particularly want to talk about the last five or six years on my end, and it... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! Happy Easter to all of you who are celebrating the day. The Easter Bunny was kind enough to leave us some chocolate today. It's just enough to get BDH and Little Buddha revved up for a little while, but not so much that they'll have stomach aches afterwards, which was kind of the bunny. Don't worry, he also left us some coffee, and it's just about ready. Help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Sunday Clutter! Don't look now, but Boston Red Sox outfielder Jackie Bradey Jr. has had himself another... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Saturday to you all! What's on the schedule for this weekend? Nothing too crazy on this end. Not a big Easter crew here. Our celebration of the holiday mostly consists of me buying a small amount of candy for BDH and Little Buddha to split, then waiting for them to come down from their sugar rush a few hours later. Other than that, it's probably mostly just a few errand here and there. We'll see. Anyway, we've got news to sort through, so let's get to work. Help yourself to a nice medium... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? I see we all survived another week. That calls for a celebration! At the very least, it calls for coffee. BDH and Little Buddha have a fresh pot ready to go, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Friday Clutter. We recently wrote in this space that if the Hanley Ramirez experiment at first base didn't work out, the Red Sox could give him a phantom hamstring injury and replace him with Travis Shaw. Now we're wondering if that's the strategy with Pablo Sandoval, since the team just announced... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How's the week treating you so far? There may have been some grumbling at Clutter HQ yesterday while I finally got to work on our taxes. I need to go through all of the numbers again, but that was as unpleasant a process as expected. At least we didn't have to add an accountant's fee on top of everything this time. BDH and Little Buddha did their best to cheer me up, which was appreciated. In any case, it's a new day, so let's get to work. The coffee is ready, so help yourself to a... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! You're just in time. BDH and Little Buddha were asking when you would get here, and here you are! It's looking pretty cloudy out there today. I understand we're looking at a rainy forecast for the rest of the week, but that's fine. The Clutter tree could usse some water to help its leaves continue to grow and once again transform our view. The boys tell me that the coffee is ready, so help yourself to a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Wednesday Clutter. The Red Sox came dangerously close to being no-hit... Read more →
