Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just reminding me that today is supposed to be the start of another heat wave, so I should take care of any errands as soon as we're done here before it gets too hot. Those two are always up for bird-watching, and then the Red Sox take on the Blue Jays this afternoon, so that should get us through a good portion of the day. I've started combing through the bookcases for things our crew might like to read. They devoured James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time yesterday,... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? BDH and Little Buddha were just giving me the current weather forecast. They say today should be great, with a high around 80 degrees and not a lot of humidity. Sounds perfect. They also say I probably don't want to know what's on tap between Sunday and Wednesday. That's unfortunate. I may give myself another haircut (keep me in your thoughts), and then I'll have to be sure to get some time outside today (in a mask-wearing/socially-distanced way, of course.) After that, our group will settle in to watch the Red Sox play... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back, and congratulations on completing another week! Any big plans for the weekend? I don't think we have anything too crazy on the schedule here. Our big excitement came last night when I (intentionally) sprayed myself with the hose after watering the garden. The flowers enjoy it so much, I wanted in on the fun. BDH and Little Buddha were giggling for the rest of the night after that happened. Sometimes you just have to break out the silly, you know? Other times, you you have to break out the coffee. As it turns out, we have... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? We're all doing fine at the moment. BDH and Little Buddha just finished reading their most recent book, so I need something to keep them occupied until our next trip to the bookstore. Maybe there will be time to hop over to the library today. That's a thought. The guys say the weather forecast calls for highs in the low 80's, so it should be a nice day ahead. Let's kick things off by checking out the headlines. There's a fresh pot of coffee on the counter, so help yourself to a nice... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Yesterday was some adventure, thanks to Tropical Storm Isaias. I got BDH and Little Buddha some snacks and something to read after we were done here, and then we settled in and waited for the storm to arrive. It was starting to seem like nothing was going to happen, but the rain came around 6:00, and then the wind picked up for the rest of the evening, which made getting to sleep a little difficult. Luckily, we didn't lose power, but we did lose two tree branches, which is disappointing. One of the... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Sorry it's so stuffy in here. The fan should get some air flow going. How's your weekend been so far? Apart from the mugginess, things are fine on this end at the moment. BDH and Little Buddha just finished their latest Elmore Leonard book, so I'm once again looking for something else for them to read. Any suggestions? I'm not sure what's on today's schedule, apart from the Red Sox - Yankees game tonight, but I guess we'll figure that out later. For now, let's take a peek at the news. The guys... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! Happy August 1! How are you? Any big plans for the weekend? I was planning on taking a COVID-19 test this afternoon. (I feel fine, but there's been a testing site in the neighborhood all week, and I figured it couldn't hurt to know my status.) However, I ended up taking it yesterday instead to get it over with, and let me tell you friends, that's an experience. I'm pretty sure they poked my brain, and that's probably what caused my random dreams last night. Since that's crossed off the to-do list, today will probably be... Read more →


Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Yesterday was a nice rebound from Wednesday here. I fixed most of the things that went wrong 24 hours earlier, and I also found another Elmore Leonard book for BDH and Little Buddha, so that was good. Speaking of our dynamic duo, I was just talking to them about how screwy my sense of time is now. I can't believe it's already July 31, because the last few weeks have generally gone by quickly, but on the other hand, the 4th seems like it was three months ago. Does that make any sense?...

Hi everyone, Welcome back! How are you? Yesterday was an odd day around here. The morning was generally fine, but a it all went south in the afternoon. A couple of things broke, and I made a mess out of some other stuff. Hopefully none of it will be a big deal to fix, but it left me a little baffled at what happened by the time I went to bed. The fun part was that I watered the garden, which is always a nice way to relax. Turns out, it rained overnight, and BDH and Little Buddha say we... Read more →
