Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? Did you get the thunderstorm we had here last night? That was something. I had the window open just a crack, and the wind coming through was still strong enough to change the temperature of my bedroom. BDH and Little Buddha thought it was all fascinating. I was mostly just glad we didn't lose power. I think it's supposed to rain more this afternoon, so I guess I won't have to water the garden again for at least a few days. Speaking of which, we're starting to... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! Everyone here was up past our bedtimes again for the second night of the Democratic presidential debates. We're tired, but it was worth it to see these folks in action. More on that in a minute. Any big plans for the weekend? It looks like it's supposed to rain both days, so the main thing here is probably watching the Red Sox take on the Yankees in London. For right now, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready.... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just talking about last night's Democratic presidential debate. We'll get into it in more detail in a second, but everyone here agreed we wished it had started an hour earlier so we could have gotten a little more sleep. Oh well, those are the sacrifices one makes to be an educated voter. In other news, the guys want to make sure you know that they are now on Instagram. We don't have many pictures up yet, but there will be more to come, so... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? I'm a little thrown that it's Wednesday. It feels like it was just Wednesday, and I thought the same thing last Wednesday. Not sure what that's about. Anyway, I shouldn't have wondered if it was going to rain yesterday, because we got a solid soaking in the afternoon. There are a couple of small splashes of color in the garden. BDH and Little Buddha say the flowers are like their caretaker - they don't like being rushed. That's fair. Let's check out today's headlines while the plants do their thing. The guys made...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Still feeling a little out of sorts here, but yesterday was a productive day which was a great way to start the week. I got all sorts of errands done, and it took about three minutes to fall asleep last night. It was supposed to be raining this morning, but BDH and Little Buddha say now it's not going to start until somewhere around noon at the earliest. I'm a little suspicious about whether it's going to happen at all, which is why I watered the garden yesterday. In any case, the guys... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I'm feeling a little beat up at the moment, although I'm not sure why. BDH and Little Buddha suggest some stretching when we're done here. Sounds like a plan. We had a little craziness due to a grease fire at Dad Clutter's house yesterday. Long story short, everyone and everything is fine, but it was a touch on the dicey side, and I don't think it would have taken much longer for it to escalate into a serious problem. Hopefully that will be the most dramatic event... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How is the official start of summer treating you so far? No complaints here. Dad Clutter and I were at Friday's Boston Red Sox game and enjoyed that dramatic win over the Toronto Blue Jays. If you watch the video of Christian Vazquez's walk-off home run, you'll see the ball bounced out of the Boston bullpen and into the bleachers about 20 feet to our right. That's the closest a ball has come my seats so far, so the dream of someday catching one is still alive! We're still waiting... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! I was just telling BDH and Little Buddha that the next time I'm supposed to stay home to sign for a package, I'm just going to have it rerouted to the local holding place and pick it up a day later. I don't know why I thought it might come early yesterday, but the UPS guy didn't show up until 7:30. It was not what we would call a "great use of time," but live and learn I guess. Now I have something else to pick up today, and... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. I was just telling BDH and Little Buddha that we have an important delivery coming today. The problem is that it requires a signature. The package will be here some time before 8:00 tonight, and I only have to be out for a couple of hours, but I feel like there's a 95% chance I'm going to miss it. The guys say they'd be happy to sign for it, but I don't think a blue dog paw or a small Buddha butt print are considered valid. (That's totally discriminatory by... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? It's pretty grey outside at the moment. I'm being told that's the forecast for the whole day. Hmm, it kind of makes me want to go back to bed, but there's too much to do, so that's not going to happen. BDH and Little Buddha say they're happy to encourage me throughout the day if that's helpful. Of course it's helpful. They're the two best motivators I know. Of course, it also doesn't hurt that they make great coffee. Speaking of which, there's a fresh pot on... Read more →
