All suited up and ready to ride
What’s the perfect outing for someone who has a mild anxiety about heights? Zip lining of course.
My friend Shirley decided she was going to celebrate her 70-somethingth birthday with something new and exciting. She sent out the zip lining adventure invitation to all of her [...]
Didn't have a picture of a washer so I'm using a picture of my cat
If you’re a regular reader of my irregular ramblings you will remember the washing machine repairs undertaken last December. If not, you can read about it here. As predicted, the problem resurfaced just a few days ago.
Midnight Mind Chatter
The TV game show Jeopardy is advertising the latest on-line test to become a contestant. It’s coming up on March 28. My husband has been urging me to register and I’ve been “forgetting”. Last night I figured out why.
It’s not that I was concerned about failing the test. It’s [...]
Not so tiny
Not quite “Build it and they will come” but the best I can do on this Saturday morning.
If you read back in my posts you’ll encounter a number of articles about play and at least one where I express my ambition to speak and teach on the subject. That [...]

After the beautiful sunset in Santa Fe, NM our intrepid travelers made a mad dash across Texas and Oklahoma and pulled into Hot Springs Arkansas about mid-day on Tuesday. There they had lunch, checked into a hotel and started taking advantage of the local amenities; mineral baths and massage.
