I'm loving The Conners, Season 3. (Minor spoiler)

Laurie Metcalf rocking the silver-gray hair is a hoot! I stopped dyeing my hair when I turned 70 and it's just a washed-out brown six years later.

We are rehoming our Russian tortoise and I am sad.

We bought it seven years ago as a birthday present for our granddaughter, but it's always lived at our house. She is 15 now, and lost interest in Shelly years ago.

Petsmart is going to take him back, and find him a new home. Maybe he will get to meet more of his own kind! I'm happy for him, but I will miss the daily routine of feeding him and fixing his lights and all. I'll be glad to reclaim the space in my dining room.

I keep humming this song today.


If I weren't an atheist, I'd think Ruth and God be like...

There, in a hospital room, the facade crumbles and the ugly truth is bared.

Tonight there are doctors and nurses bustling about the room of a fat old man with thin stringy hair, splotchy skin, a scowling mouth, and puffy eye slits.

No fancy comb-over, no spray tan, no super-long tie to hide his gut. A hospital gown that barely covers his ass, maybe. Hooked up to IV's and monitors.

Just an evil fool who thought he was more than he was.

The very BEST news I heard today! My niece's wife is

pregnant with twins. I love these two young women. They invited me to join them for the first Women's March and we walked ten miles around D.C. with our signs.

I do really like this day.

Holding my breath till we know the Bidens' test results.

If Shithead and his unmasked entourage gave it to the good guys, they'll say, "See? Masks don't protect you." We know this is false, but they will dig it in with glee.

Just watched Cuties. No spoilers.

This is not a movie that promotes or glamorizes underage sexuality. It is a semi-documentary about one girl's yearning to belong, and the na´vetÚ that makes her fail to recognize important boundaries.

Her home life and school life are worlds apart, and juggling them is hard. The ads for the movie focus on the dancing, but dance is not sex. Music and dance have saved many a child from loneliness, and that's really what this movie is about.

VA assisted living program

My mother (97) and her husband (86) are both veterans. They live in their own house and he takes care of her, but both are in fragile health.

He just called me and said mom got a card from the VA in the mail on Monday and he called the number and a man came out yesterday and signed them up.

They will get money every month to hire household help, but since they both qualify, they will also get a check for the services he performs for my mother. He said the man told him the program has been around since the 60's.

I am shocked. We could have been benefitting from this for years? My siblings and I have researched nursing homes and debated different scenarios at every meeting. Keeping the old folks in their own home as long as possible is best.

It just sounds too good to be true. I hope people know about this and are using it.

Except for Covid and hurricanes, flying now is not bad.

Hurricane conjurer here, headed again to BR via Atlanta to help the nonagenarians. I made it last month; will I sleep in the Atlanta airport tonight? Brought food.

No crowds, everyone masked and distant, and this time the Dunkin' is open in my gate area at Logan.

Could be worse.
