Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha just told me today's weather forecast calls for thunderstorms for most of the day. I asked them if they think we'll really get the rain, or if it will once again end up being about 10 minutes of showers. Their guess is that the storm is actually coming, so I may take care of a quick errand after we're done here. I hope it rains, it would be good for the flowers. We're in the final stretch of gardening season, but there might still be a few weeks left... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I'm a little beat up at the moment. Standing on concrete all day on Saturday at the Boston Comic Con did a number on my feet (although it was totally worth it.) I was feeling better by yesterday morning, but then I think I threw something off again while watering the garden for two hours last night (still worth it.) The right side of my back tightened up, and it went down through my thigh, which later woke me up in the middle of the night. Things... Read more →


I finally got my chance to meet former Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi at this year's Boston Comic Convention, and it was awesome! I haven't been to a comic convention in about 35 years, so this was a fascinating experience. There were all sorts of people in various costumes. Some of them went over my head, but those seemed to be anime characters. There were a number of Avengers, including an impressive Iron Man costume. Doctor Who was also represented, as there were a few people dressed as the 4th, 6th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 12th, and 13th Doctors. The most... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How was your weekend? We had a great couple of days. The Boston Comic Con was so much fun on Saturday (we'll discuss that more in a later post), and then I caught up with some friends on Sunday, and that's always nice. BDH and Little Buddha were just checking out the weather forecast, and it sounds like this is going to be a hot week, including a heat advisory for today. We will plan accordingly and encourage you to do the same. The guys also just made a fresh... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all! What's on the schedule for the weekend? Things get off to an exciting start here today, as BDH, Little Buddha, and I will spend the afternoon waiting for the third time for the gas company to change our meter. The first time, the guy said it was a two-person job, and I'd have to reschedule the appointment. The second time, the guy blew us off, and he had the nerve to stick a "Sorry we missed you" flyer on the door handle, despite the fact that we were literally... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just talking about how excited we are that we're going to the Boston Comic Con to meet Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi on Saturday! I don't think I've been to a comic convention in about 35 years, so this should be fun. However, that's still two days away, and there are a number of things that need to be taken care of first, starting with checking out today's headlines. The guys made some coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I built my entire schedule around there being thunderstorms yesterday, so of course it didn't rain for more than 30 seconds. It seems like that's happened more often than usual this year. Oh well, it's a good thing I watered the garden on Monday just to be safe. BDH and Little Buddha say today's forecast seems calmer, so hopefully we'll find something new to read outside for a while tonight. Oh, the new free weekly paper comes out today, so we can do the rock and roll... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just telling me the weather forecast for today. Looks like we've got thunderstorms on the schedule for the afternoon. I watered the garden yesterday, but some more rain couldn't hurt. Guess I'll try to run a couple of errands this morning before it gets nasty out there. First things first, though. Let's check out today's headlines. The guys made a fresh pot of coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Tuesday Clutter. (As always, if you'd like to support our... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Come on in, have a seat. How are you? I'm sorry we missed you on Sunday. I didn't realize we weren't going to be able to meet up until the last minute. While I'm thinking of it, we probably also won't be here this coming Sunday, but I'll try to remind you about that again later in the week. Things are generally okay here at the moment. I'm in a little bit of denial that we're in the back half of gardening season, and I'm also trying to ignore the fact that there's already noticeably less... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. What's on your schedule for the weekend? Unfortunately, I'm going to a wake for a close friend's brother today, and then the funeral is tomorrow. Kevin was a huge presence everywhere he went, and it's weird to process that all of that energy is gone in the blink of an eye. I'm definitely looking forward to some time in the garden afterwards. As for right now, BDH and Little Buddha say the coffee is ready, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. (As... Read more →
