Men and their machines

March 9, 2022


We all know the special bond that men have with their machines. This bond is even stronger than any human bonds. So Mr. Ken and I live in New England. In spite of global warming, we still get lots of snow. But Mr. Ken, being the organized person he is, has a snowblower. And being […]

Spring is coming!

March 2, 2022


It has been a long winter, to say the least. Yes, the days are getting longer and the sun is getting brighter, but we just had a big snowstorm with 9 inches of snow. It was all of 9 degrees Farenheit (-13 degrees Celsius) the day after the storm. Brrrrr. But spring is coming! How […]

It is “BearTime”

February 23, 2022


Sir Oliver, Sir Angus and Toby are very concerned about their beloved Queen’s health after hearing that she tested positive for COVID. They wish they were back home so they could cheer her up! They decided that the second best thing would be to post this photo on Nancy’s blog and hope that it goes […]

Pandemic perspectives

February 16, 2022


Our worlds have been turned upside down from this never-ending Pandemic. I always try to see the bright side of things though. Some recent experiences made me laugh.

Yet more Pandemic tales

January 19, 2022


As we enter the second year of the Pandemic, time seems to slow down. And, once again, I find myself doing and thinking things that I would not have dreamed of before the Pandemic. Having lots of time to look at stuff Since Omicron is raging, I am even more reluctant to go into a […]

Winter Wonderland

January 12, 2022


A simple and quick post this week. Mr. Ken hasn’t done anything goofy lately. And I haven’t really been out anywhere so I can’t write about our adventures. We just had our first snowfall of the season. Snow can be fun, as long as you don’t have to go anywhere. The day after a snowfall […]

Taking a fresh look at my surroundings

January 5, 2022


My hip has been bothering me, so I have had to drastically cut back on my walking. I still prevail a little bit though. I no longer take walking for granted and I savor every step. Even when I walk the same route, there is always something new and interesting to see. I thought I […]

Happy New Year!

December 29, 2021
