I'm Just Saying

Plateau of aging

Paul often says the reason we forget that we are people of ‘a certain age’ is because we haven’t passed the normal rites of passage other couples have. This theory was repeated upon my audible gasp upon seeing a recent photo of rock crooner, Neil Young. Who was this double chinned curmudgeon with wisps of gray hair?

Mr. Yow in the house

Mr. Yow is in the house!!

Correction: Mr. Yow was in the house.

Alright, what actually happened is, by following the North Star, cat number six showed up at the Funny Farm—and I swear I didn’t create this by jinxing myself and saying, “Gee, it’s been a while since a stray has shown up.”

It’s only grass

Several people of late have asked, tongue firmly in cheek, if I mind Paul spending most of his free time in the garage with his vintage Morgans.

(That’s right: there are two now, but I think there’s something wrong with his latest acquisition as it only has three wheels.)

Georgie’s tail of woe

We don’t often lose power here at the farm and when we do, it’s usually for minutes, maybe an hour. The timing, however, seems to always coincide just as I am about to step into the shower after a long, dusty (or muddy) day with the horses. And because we’re on a well, that means no water.

Swift justice

Look, how can I not write about Taylor Swift this week? Or rather, the cyclone of coverage that swirls around her every move?

No, I’m not going to muse about the ballyhoo around whether or not anyone wants to see her for three second cutaways during NFL games, when her beau, Travis Kelce, makes a play.

Stumped at the dump

"If there’s one thing I hate,” I vented coming into the house after a trip to the recycling center, “It’s dump amateurs! I mean, honestly, if you can’t figure out the parking sequence, don’t go! Get somebody else to drive.”

Two tough broads

This week at The Funny Farm has not been for the faint-hearted.

When temps plummet and oblige us to disconnect the water to the barn and drain the pipes, while I use a couple of plug in, electric buckets to keep water warm, we still end up toting hot water from the house to help melt the outdoor water troughs and soak alfalfa.

The Big Cheese

It’s taken a while, but Paul’s Christmas present has finally arrived—the first of a monthly delivery.

Yes, I did it… for the man who has the same reaction as the levitating Snuffles the dog on Quick Draw McGraw over a piece of Stilton, I made Paul a member of a “Cheese of the Month Club.”

Weather or not

I have come to believe that weather apps are somewhat akin to a Magic 8 ball: they are rarely spot on, but more than likely vague and unhelpful.
