MEET LILLIAN! – Revised!

MEET LILLIAN. Who?  Why? Lillian is on my mind this week.   She was my aunt.  My mother’s sister.  I wrote about her over last weekend, but that post was too long, and Lillian “got lost in the shuffle.”  So, now, Lillian has a post of her own!  She matters because she mattered.  A woman beforeContinue reading “MEET LILLIAN! – Revised!”


This is what is on my mind this morning…the “Stockdale Paradox”. Before I start, please know that I am not looking for agreement or argument.  I am thinking out loud in this post.  Contemplating this concept.  NOT A COMPARISON.  As a result, I often ramble.  And sometime, my point gets lost. My grammar get sloppy,Continue reading “THE STOCKDALE PARADOX”


BREAKING NEWS!!!  I got stopped by the police again this morning!  France has tightened restrictions regarding jogging and walking for exercise because people (young and old) were just going about their business, as usual, as far as getting together to exercise, laugh, and enjoy the spring weather in Paris.  Damn!  I have waited to doContinue reading “OUTSIDE MY DOOR – ONE MILE; 40 MINUTES!”


This has been a wonderful week!  I have gotten an excellent Vet who has helped Missy, and I have gotten a dentist in the neighborhood who cleaned my teeth. This is his waiting room.  He may or may not be a keeper.  I like his taste in art. And, finally, I got a housekeeper, whoContinue reading “JUST SAYIN…….”


Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. –  Carl Jung After my last post, I had several people who care about me ask if I were all right?  I think they were taking my post literally.  No, it is/was metaphorical. Continue reading “A WORD OF EXPLANATION…..”


Paris Week!  Yes, I went to Paris on the train for six nights and seven days (two travel days).  On Monday, October 21, 2019, I got on the TGV High Speed Train to Paris at Gare Nice Ville. My tickets were First Class because I wanted all the bells and whistles that First Class provided.  IContinue reading “PARIS WEEK”


Since 1993 ((age 56), I have been continually downsizing.  Lots of years spent accumulating.  Now, it is the other way around.  I have a lot of people ask me how I am doing it because they know the big houses I have had and lots of furniture and “stuff”.  Plus, I saved everything “in caseContinue reading “DOWNSIZING -26 YEARS IN THE MAKING!”


I keep taking a step at a time and scaring myself each time.  Haha!  This week has been a “doozy” (Family expression), saying to myself, “Well, when Isis attacks Paris after the Battle of Normandy, I hope I am not shopping at Chanel that day!” I keep thinking that cooler heads will prevail. NOT.  A “friend”Continue reading “RED LETTER DAYS”


***Cliché’s have always been a part of my vocabulary.  Why?  Because Daddy was ALWAYS saying a cliché, or a catchy slogan, or a joke, or a byline, or a …..  You get the picture.  One of his favorites was “The grass is not greener on the other side of the fence.”  And “Go to it!”,Continue reading “ENLARGE YOUR UNIVERSE – – – SAY “YES!”


In  my Universal Bubble here, I am into my third week of recovery at La Serena Convalescence Center here in Nice, France, after my second knee replacement surgery, on June 27, 2019. A bit of background to connect the dots (Remember Connecting the dots when you were a child?)  I had a knee replacement onContinue reading “THIS IS MY WORLD AND WELCOME TO IT – AGAIN!!!”
