May 2021

Hi everyone, Welcome back! I don't know about you, but yesterday may have been the quietest day of 2021 around here so far. We hung out with you guys to start, found no reason to go outside in the rain, the Red Sox game was cancelled, and then we took an extended nap. Not too long after that, it was time to make dinner, we cleared a few things off the DVR, and then it was time for bed. Given today's weather forecast, BDH and Little Buddha are already asking when nap time will happen again. At least the garden... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? Sorry we missed you on Friday. Some gremlins caused a little bit of mischief that kept us from hanging out with all of you. However, our crack IT staff eventually got everything back on track, and here we are! How is your long weekend going so far? First, we want to take a moment to remember the soldiers who gave their lives for this country, which is why we have Memorial Day. Second, we have to admit, we didn't expect to mark the unofficial start of summer by debating whether or not to turn on... Read more →

It's a little startling to realize that Friends went off the air 17 years ago. It was must-see TV for millions of people in their 20's and 30's from 1994 to 2004. The show has enjoyed a resurgence in recent years, thanks to nostalgia from original fans, as well as the introduction of a new generation of young adults who also relate to these six characters trying to establish themselves in the world. No doubt, many people distracted themselves during the pandemic by watching reruns, and now fans have a chance to see all six actors reunite in a long-awaited... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Did you get the rain we had here last night? That was a welcome break from yesterday's heat and humidity. There's supposed to be more on the way to start Memorial Day weekend. I know most people won't be excited about that, but the garden will be thrilled if it happens. We had a big night at HQ last night. BDH, Little Buddha, and I participated in an online trivia contest as part of this year's virtual college reunion. (BDH actually came with me for all four years of undergrad life.) We were... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? Is your week going okay so far? I struck out with the new releases at the bookstore yesterday. That was disappointing. BDH and Little Buddha told me not to worry about it. They say they have plenty of ways to entertain themselves until we find something new to read, starting with listening to the birds who are chattering up a storm this morning. Little Buddha thinks they're talking about how today's temperatures are supposed to hit the 90's this afternoon. Yikes. Good thing I already watered the garden. I believe tonight is also the season... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha are excited, because the birds have gone back to chirping after a quiet morning yesterday. The guys even heard an owl for a little while, so that was fun. It's Tuesday, so you know what that means - it's time for our weekly trip to the bookstore to look for a new release these two might like. They had a book they weren't enjoying a few weeks ago, and they put it to the side for a while, but it looks like it's just a no-go. Fortunately that doesn't... Read more →

Hi everyone, How are you? We're all doing fine, except that BDH and Little Buddha are wondering why the birds are silent this morning. Maybe they're sleeping in because it's a little chilly? I'm sure the chirping will start soon. I gave the garden a good soaking yesterday afternoon. It was a little bit of an adventure because of the wind, but I feel better now because the plants really needed the water. We've got a few items on today's to-do list, including my first Zoom meeting in a long time, so I have to remember to look presentable. First,... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We hope you're having a good weekend so far. No complaints on this end. I had some quality one-on-one time with Dad Clutter's cat yesterday which was great. Dad has been out of town, so I think Miguel enjoyed the company. He got plenty of treats and head rubs, and he followed me around everywhere. We've come a long way since I used to chase him around the house begging him to let me pet him. Today will probably be pretty quiet, except I have to water the garden later this afternoon. BDH...

We're heading into the final stretch of waiting for Mammoth WVH's debut album to be released on June 11, and now Wolf Van Halen has given the world the title track, "Mammoth" with a new lyric video. It's another win for the talented musician, and our immediate thought is that this should be the opening song for every Mammoth WVH set. Close your eyes, and it's easy to picture each member walking out on stage as the music begins. The guitars and drums grab your attention in the first 30 seconds and don't let go, which is just what a... Read more →

Hi everyone, Welcome back, and congratulations on making it through another week! Any big plans for the weekend? I don't think we've got anything too crazy on the schedule. Yesterday's dentist appointment went fine, and I will get back to my regular schedule, now that the idea of traveling to their office by public transportation isn't so stressful. (Thank you, science.) Not feeling all that motivated at the moment this morning, but BDH and Little Buddha say they have just the answer: Coffee! There's a fresh pot on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time... Read more →
