Saturday…More of DC…

It’s Saturday, a beautiful Spring like day too.  Unusual weather for the end of February. It’s been a mild winter this year, thank the powers that be. I opened the door in my office that goes outside/out back and let the fresh air pour in today.  It was glorious. Sunshine and sweet cool air.  It […]

Thoes of Thursday…

Called out of work sick today. I woke up with a headache and just couldn’t take the light in my eyes.  I suffer with migraines, I have for years.  They are not as frequent or as bad as they used to be (before menopause) but they still happen occasionally.  When I get them I have […]

Short break from the story…

Let’s take a little hiatus from my Washington Story for a day or two.  I need to put some things together to properly tell the rest of that story, and I also need to get permission from some people who were involved to tell some of it.  I am changing names to protect people’s identities […]

Friday night rambles…

It’s Friday and the week is over!  My weekend has just begun.  I got off work today a couple of hours later than usual because the place was short handed due to people calling out so they needed me to stay a couple extra hours. I didn’t mind at all. I like my job, I […]

Those Darned Definitions…

Man!  Has language changed some radically since I’ve been walking this green earth.  Daily I am surprised by the “new” use of “old” words; the newer definitions and meanings of some.  Start with the word we all know and use in a zillion different ways:  Queer.  Now we know the dictionary meaning to be “odd […]
