Poor Boy is Peckish Friday Round-Up

Yesterday’s episode of Donald Trump’s Playhouse, featuring his tiny dancer desk, made life worth living. And his “I’M THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES!” explosion was better than a bucket of whipped cream on fresh pie. His little show, played out thumb scroll after… Continue Reading “Poor Boy is Peckish Friday Round-Up”

Purr-fect Friday Round-Up

My life in a parallel universe is going pretty well. Of course, I don’t see my compatriots, the other folks who are wearing masks and hunkering down because, you know, they are hunkering down. I do see the people bunched up around the tavern… Continue Reading “Purr-fect Friday Round-Up”

Take Heart Friday Round-Up

My husband has decided that he must give me this hat for Christmas. I already have beaver mittens and mukluks – both of them replete with beading and bought from native Alaskan vendors. My husband, for a thousand different reasons, is enamored with all… Continue Reading “Take Heart Friday Round-Up”

Did You Mow in Straight Lines Friday Round-Up

Anxiety, self-doubt, accomplishment, laughter, fear, loathing, it was just your run-of-the-mill pandemic, presidential- coup-on-the-horizon kind of week. We are, you all realize, getting to the point where nothing really fazes us. It’s not numbness. I don’t think we’re numb. I think we have extremely… Continue Reading “Did You Mow in Straight Lines Friday Round-Up”

Nome Friday Round-Up

Not that many places are unforgettable but I think Nome is. Sadly, I don’t think I’ll ever be back. What I’ve collected up this week by way of stones and stories will have to do. I’ve thought about that the whole time, telling myself… Continue Reading “Nome Friday Round-Up”

They Moved the Finish Line Friday Round-Up

No normalcy for a while, folks. Normalcy has been postponed until you’ve forgotten what it would look like. Dr. Fauci delivered this news today wearing one of his trademark button down shirts. He is an extremely fine old man, if you ask me. That… Continue Reading “They Moved the Finish Line Friday Round-Up”

Only for Now Friday Round-Up

We are having a socially-distanced family gathering at the park on Sunday. This works pretty well now but sitting six feet apart under the trees will be challenging for Thanksgiving and Christmas in Wisconsin. Things could change by then, but I don’t think so.… Continue Reading “Only for Now Friday Round-Up”

We Had Fish Tofu, Did You? Friday Round-Up

Republicans in Wisconsin are quickly gearing up to rip those life-saving masks right off our faces. Our Democratic governor super slow-walked a mask mandate, finally took the leap yesterday, and within seconds, Republican “leaders’ announced their plan to convene a special legislative session to… Continue Reading “We Had Fish Tofu, Did You?

Mostly Out of Gas Friday Round-Up

This is how we feel about the fucking pandemic. I am not sleeping on the grass because I would have to make room in my Covid-obsessed brain to be worried about ticks. And, obviously, that would not be possible so, instead, I photographed my… Continue Reading “Mostly Out of Gas Friday Round-Up”

Oh Well Friday Round-Up

My husband went to the Asian Market today. This is a food mecca for him. He buys great bunches of Thai basil and bean sprouts and, during normal times, jars of mysterious sauces which, once opened, stay in our refrigerator for decades.Today, as a… Continue Reading “Oh Well Friday Round-Up”
