Longevity Amazes Me

I still check my office email two or three times a day even though, technically, I'm in phased retirement and off service right now. There doesn't seem to be an easy way to manage the junk mail overflow unless I do that, though. At least, that's my excuse. Anyway, I got this email with a … Continue reading Longevity Amazes Me

I would like to thank Dr. George Dawson for his post on the need to prevent violence against health care workers.

Crushed the Old-Fashioned Reel Mower Challenge!

I’ve been looking at the grass for a little over a week now and could not see a way out of mowing. Thank goodness for dumb luck. I crushed the old-fashioned reel mower challenge today. I grew up using a reel mower. I never had a power mower until Sena and I bought our first … Continue reading Crushed the Old-Fashioned Reel Mower Challenge!
