June 2022

Hi folks, How are you? BDH, Little Buddha, and I were just talking about how crazy it is that it's already the end of June. May went by pretty slowly, but this month was over in a flash. I need time to tap the brakes just a little bit. We've got 2-3 months of garden time left, and then it's all about enduring fall and winter. Not in a rush for that at all. We had a surprise bit of rain last night. Selfishly, I didn't love that it cut my garden time short. However, it was good for the... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back. How are you? We had a big win here yesterday - I finally found something new for BDH and Little Buddha to read! There was nothing at the bookstore, but the local library came through with a book I hope the guys will enjoy. It's pretty long, so it should last them a little while if they get into it. Support your libraries, folks. They're a terrific resource. There was also some quality garden time yesterday, which was nice. Today's big adventure is bringing the car in for an oil change, and then take care of... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? We got a little bit of rain yesterday, but it wasn't enough, so I ended up watering the garden after all. That's okay, it's a relaxing activity that I enjoy. I also slept much better last night, thankfully. The birds are chirping up a storm this morning. BDH and Little Buddha think they're talking about how great the garden looks, and how they want to check out all of the flowers. Hopefully the bees will also show up soon. I'll look for them after I check out the new releases at the bookstore this morning.... Read more →

Hi folks, How was the rest of your weekend? I had a pretty productive morning yesterday, stayed out of the sun for a good part of the afternoon, and then got in some garden time near the end of the day (even though it was still 90 degrees.) All in all, a good Sunday. The problem is that I slept horribly. It must have been because of the heat/humidity, but that wasn't good. There may need to be an emergency nap later today. The birds started chirping around 3:15 this morning. BDH and Little Buddha think they were talking about... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? Weekend going okay so far, apart from the whole, "U.S. Supreme Court eradicating the rights of millions of women in this country" crisis? There was a lot of running around involved for yesterday's to-do list. Today should be a little quieter, which is great, because BDH and Little Buddha say it's supposed to be in the 90's this afternoon. The garden looks terrific, but it probably needs a watering. I may hold off on that, because it's supposed to rain tomorrow morning. If that forecast turns out to be a tease, I'll break out the... Read more →

Hi folks, I know we usually don't see you here on Saturdays. However, the gang decided we didn't want to wait until tomorrow to discuss the U.S. Supreme Court eradicating the right to privacy. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, and let's clear out some Clutter. After decades of warnings by abortion advocates, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade by a 5-4 vote on Friday. (Chief Justice John Roberts voted to uphold a Mississippi abortion ban, but he said the court's ruling should be limited to that law.)... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Friday to you all. What's on the schedule for this weekend? I don't think we have anything too crazy on the to-do list. BDH and Little Buddha say it's supposed to be pretty hot, so staying hydrated will be a priority. Speaking of which, I'll probably have to water the garden at some point. Rain is in the forecast for Monday, but I feel like that's going to be a big tease. Anyway, let's get to work. The guys made coffee, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear...

Hi folks, How are you? The first day of summer was gorgeous, but I didn't have any luck at the bookstore. I even checked the bird section, but nothing seemed like a good match for BDH and Little Buddha. Of course the guys are fine with that. They say they'll listen to today's chirping, and then we can watch tonight's Red Sox game. These two are always willing to go with the flow. We should all be more like them. Now, let's get to work. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium... Read more →

Hi folks, How are you? Happy first official day of summer! BDH and Little Buddha woke up early this morning to listen to the birds. The chirping started around 4:00 this morning, and the guys have been hanging on every note. According to them, the birds are saying they know it's a little chilly outside right now, but it will warm up this afternoon. Works for me. I'm off to the bookstore after we're done here. Maybe I'll find a book about birds for our crew to read. First, let's check out the headlines. There's a fresh pot of coffee... Read more →

Hi folks, Welcome back, and a happy Monday to you all. It feels like an early September morning here, since it's currently 45 degrees outside. This is mid-June, right? BDH and Little Buddha agree that's odd, but they say the birds told them that things will warm up soon, so everything should be fine. In the meantime, what do you say we check out the headlines? Sound like a plan? There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so grab yourself a nice medium DD, because it's time to clear out some Clutter. The limited bipartisan Senate gun control...
