Mr. Ken, Mr. Fix It – part one

April 28, 2021

Hello there! This is Nancy’s dear husband, Mr. Ken, sitting in for Nancy for a few weeks as she recuperates from her recent shoulder surgery to repair an injured rotator cuff. She was thrilled when I offered to be a guest blogger for a few weeks until she is able pound out her own blogs […]

Mr. Ken’s latest project

April 21, 2021

13

So I come home from a walk the other day and I noticed a rather large box sitting in our front steps. Mmm, it kind of looks like a box that a refrigerator would come in, but I don’t think Mr. Ken ordered a new one. As I come inside, Mr. Ken excitedly tells me […]

Spots of brightness

It sure has been a long, dark winter. I am so glad that spring is here. I love taking walks these days since the grass is so green, the flowers are coming out and the flowering trees are budding. So pretty. I haven’t written about my favorite store, Trader Joes, lately. But I have a […]

Blame it on COVID

This Pandemic stuff is getting old. Boy is that an understatement! I try to keep things in perspective by being thankful that: My family and loved ones are healthy. Financially, we are doing okay. I can get out for walks every day. All that being said, Mr. Ken and I find that we are more […]

It has been a long and rather dark winter, but spring is here! I love Easter because of the promise of new life. Since I have been taking more walks, I have joyfully noticed the early spring flowers like crocuses coming up. Happy Easter! Happy Spring! Happy Passover!

Peeps are back – yay!

March 24, 2021

It sure has been a tough year, made even tougher by the fact that the Peeps factory in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, closed down because of Covid. This made for a sad, Peepless year. The exciting news is that the factory is once again open and Peeps are back! Oh happy day. We aren’t completely out of […]

Spring is coming

March 17, 2021

To say it’s been a long winter is an understatement. It has been a long, very hard year. But, I am encouraged by Spring. I just love the brighter sunshine, longer days and pretty flowers. I especially love crocuses because they are so hardy! You can see them poking up through the snow. Yes, I […]

Balla Bracelets – the dark side of customer service

March 10, 2021

I normally wouldn’t call out a company in public, but in this case, I just have to. Bottom line, do NOT do business with Balla Bracelets. I had an awful experience with them. Here’s my story. In November, I started getting emails from Balla Bracelets. Now I had bought bracelets from them a few years […]

Fun at the Government Interview

March 3, 2021

9

February 2021 rolls around and guess what, a major snowstorm is scheduled for the day of our interviews. I tried to go in and reschedule, but nothing was available. The closest available appointments were in Vermont on the Canadian border. Now, that won’t work since Vermont doesn’t let people from Massachusetts in since we have […]

Government fun and games

February 24, 2021

No, this post is not about any government conspiracies. Although that might make for an interesting post. This is about the rather mundane task of applying for the Global Entry Trusted Traveler Program. Except it was not so mundane. A year ago, Mr. Ken and I decided to apply for the Global Entry Trusted Traveler […]
