NOVEMBER begins with pet-PEEVES AND BLESSINGS…..
As I sit here getting ready to write, I remember how much I don’t like this MAC that I have been using ever since Steve died in 2016, and I still don’t like it. I always prefer my PC. But I have used this one because it was brand new when he died and soContinue reading “NOVEMBER begins with pet-PEEVES AND BLESSINGS…..”

THE SUNDAY FUNNIES – FROM PARIS, WITH LOVE
Do people still have a sense of humor? Both of my sons like to laugh. I sometimes question their sense of humor, but that’s my job. I am their mother. And I seldom believe their political beliefs.

Well, here we are in Chapter Ten, and I, for one, need something that feels normal for a change of pace. Football. It is September and that is when I long for football. Games. Brisk weather.

LATE AUGUST 2021 NO COMMENT COMMENTARY FROM PARIS with love……
Some days are not good days for me. I think it has to do with biorhythms. But, I don’t know. So, I am not going to try to write about depression, or family values, or whatever. I have some good topics when I feel like it, and I have been trying to walk in myContinue reading “LATE AUGUST 2021 NO COMMENT COMMENTARY FROM PARIS with love……”
JANET In Paris! Status Update!
