‘Who says we don’t have variety in the living room?’

There’s a bit of background to this.  In my truck, I never listen to the radio.  Instead, I got an old-school iPod Classic with 120 GB of storage capacity (they’d prefer we forget those good old days) and connected it to a multimedia-ready aftermarket stereo.  I learned that if you load up about 5200 songs … More ‘Who says we don’t have variety in the living room?’

Diary of a Sunday (aka random-ass thoughts) ~ 05-20-2018

Hmmm… WordPress wants me to “share my story here“.  WordPress should probably be careful what it asks for (lol). My only real story at the moment is that it has rained (a thunderstorm that actually spared our power supply!), which means that the temperature has dropped a good few degrees in the last hour, and … More Diary of a Sunday (aka random-ass thoughts) ~ 05-20-2018

It’s easier to ask forgiveness than permission

Don’t get too excited yet–windchills are still well into the negative numbers, … More Notes from the Taiga

Well, the weather outside is frightful :)

Whoever said this lives in the Taiga that is Minnesota–or maybe Manitoba.  Because, well, it’s the truth.  Honesty is a virtue, right?  😉 What does “frightful” mean, anyway?  Well, it could take on any one or combo of several meanings.  It could be the first-snowstorm-in-30-years event that we had in South Texas, but we’re not … More Well, the weather outside is frightful 🙂

It’s the most blunder-full time of the year :)

This Christmas Thingy?  Yeah, it isn’t quite as easy as it looks.  At least, not in my dimension.  It’s fun (!), it’s just also chock-full of potholes. First there’s the whole gift-giving thing, and the etiquette that goes along with it.  The pressure of matching the caliber of gifts, without knowing what people are going … More It’s the most blunder-full time of the year 🙂
