I got my first grey hair when I was 25. On Christmas day, no less. I woke up in the morning, looked in the mirror, and thought 'what is in my hair?' So I pulled on it. Ouch! The damn thing was attached! I plucked it out, of course. That one white hair turned out … Continue reading Hair, circa Covid-19
I have not been writing since this covid-19 thing started. Not much, anyway. And clearly not blog posts, according to my sad posting history of recent weeks. But I do complain occasionally that I'm not writing enough because I don't have any focus or drive. It's ugly sometimes, isn't it?

This is the first time in 88 years that my mother did not wake up on Groundhog Day with an opinion on whether spring was imminent or not. … Continue reading Of Marmots and Groundhogs
-44 C, I'm told. The coldest I've seen was at 8:30 this morning, -42C, so it was almost certainly colder than that overnight. For those of you who do temperature in Farenheit, -40 is precisely the same on either scale. Freakin' cold! Both vehicles are dead (or at least in a deep deep hibernation state), … Continue reading What January Brings
