Mr. Ken – the serious book reader

August 10, 2016


Who knew that my beloved Mr. Ken would turn into such a serious book reader? Here he is, hard at work, reading his latest book, “Alexander Hamilton” by Ron Chernow. Yes, this is the very same book upon which the musical, “Hamilton,” is based. Mr. Ken recently decided to join a book club at our […]

What gnats can teach us about life

August 3, 2016


Yes, you read that correctly – gnats. As my energy has slowly returned, I am on a mission to mix up my exercise routine. I decided to use my MP3 player and walk to music. I have several aerobic routines that were recorded by Sean O’Malley. (RIP – dear Sean, he has since left this […]
