Geeks, geeks and more geeks

January 25, 2023

I guess I shouldn’t be surprised at this. The other day I came downstairs and hear Mr. Ken talking to his twin brother. Except he was holding his phone and had earphones on and was using the earphones to talk with his brother. I wonder if he used an NDSI card in those earphones? Sigh, […]

Return of the geeks

My dear Mr. Ken loves donuts and chipmunks. He also loves technology. He claims to never have had a pocket protector, but I know better. There must be one floating around our house somewhere. The other day, he was in his office, very focused on his computer screen. I asked him a question and no […]

Unusual hobbies

Hobbies are fun. They can take us away from everyday life. Mr. Ken has recently taken up metal detecting. I’m glad he has something to take him out of the house and away from donut eating. 🙂 When I picture metal detecting, I picture an old guy in white socks, walking along the beach. Thankfully, […]

Happy, happy New Year!

The new year is a time for new beginnings. And a time for making resolutions. As for me, I used to dutifully write down my resolutions. They were quickly forgotten by mid-January. So now I do something different. I focus on a particular word for the year. In the past it has been words like […]

Merry, merry Christmas!

I love the Christmas season. The lights and decorations are so pretty. I especially love putting up our Christmas tree. All of our ornaments have a story behind them. The Ken and Nancy snowmen were bought in Weston, Vermont, during one of our many trips to Vermont. The Santa in a kayak,on the upper left, […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

The tree has been put up, the Christmas cards written and the Christmas meal planned. Now it is time to relax and enjoy the season. It is just so nice and relaxing to sit in our family room on these cold, dark nights and look at the pretty Christmas tree. Mr. Ken also has the […]

As most of you know, the royals, William and Kate, were here in Boston a week ago. Our Guys have been very excited about this! Sir Oliver was beside himself when he saw this photo in the Globe showing an 8-year-old boy, dressed like a palace guard, presenting William and Kate with flowers! Have you […]

Too much time on my hands

November 30, 2022

So the Covid lockdowns have eased and even I have been getting out of the house more. That being said, I still don’t get out enough. The other day, I went into a closet to get a coffee pod for my morning coffee. I am still half asleep. As I am gazing into the cardboard […]

Happy Thanksgiving from the gang

Our guys, Sir Oliver, Toby and Sir Angus, wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving! And something to make you smile. Mr. Ken and Sir Angus seem to have identical taste in clothes. I call them my doppelgangers! 🙂 I just love this time of year. I take lots of time to slow down and reflect […]

Let’s talk about souvenirs

I love having momentos of our trips; they don’t have to be anything fancy. This time in Vermont I got some good ones. The beautiful wood bowl was handmade by a 95 year old man from New Hampshire. We picked up this gem at the Chester Fall Festival. The pretty tea ball with a dragon […]
