We Need More Silly

My philosophy is that, with jeans, any socks go with any outfit. I like to get creative with my socks. Every winter, I go to Target and get several pairs of the most colorful, interesting socks I can find (that are in colors I like).

Winter Storm Jonas, Day 2

So, the snow has finally stopped and now it’s time to dig out. I like this part. The buildings in my complex horseshoe around a parking lot and everyone comes out and we all help each other dig out.

The Elusive Peach

Possibly the most delicious fruit in the mainland United States is a really good peach. It’s not just the flavor, it’s the overtones. It’s like a fine wine: As you swallow it, the character of the flavor changes. It’s the best.  I’m trying to think of the last time I had a peach that good. It’s been years,

Look for the Little Things

I got my sunglasses fixed today. When I had had a chunk of disposable income, I’d splurged on prescription sunglasses with a pretty expensive frame. Well, expensive to me. But they made me look cool and I had the money at that moment, so I got them.

One Digit at a Time
