    In between

    Chatting with a Facebook “friend” the other day, something in the conversation led to my posting a photo of me back in the early ’70s when living in California. It was me in front of the 80-passenger, 10-speed, double clutch school bus I drove (as one of my three simultaneous jobs, in the Sierra Nevadas […]

You can have your phony life in your multimillion-dollar Fifth Avenue penthouses. You can’t walk out, barefoot on the grass, …

    My new old oven

    Goodwill is a dangerous store. I wish it weren’t so handily located, so easy to drop in and “just look” to see what might have come in while at the same time reminding yourself that you only going to look and not buy because you have no need of anything nor room for anything else in the house. My Grammie Tucker used to say: “It isn’t a bargain if you don’t need it.” She also knew the difference between a “need” …
