Social Vampirism Is On The Rise

Social Vampirism Is On The Rise
It was a glorious morning with the temps tolerable and the sun shining brightly. The extra light coupled with low humidity created a positive impact on me from the time I left home. Of course I did have to stop and purchase a strong cup of coffee before heading to office, just so I'd be "juiced-up" by the time I arrived over at St. Paul to play the … continue reading

Button-Hole Saturday

Button-Hole Saturday
The way it was misting out this morning, I ended up having a flash-back of what such days are like as we approach a hard winter, and if it were about twenty degrees cooler, it would've been a perfect match-up.After getting myself situated at office, I happened to check my email, and there I found the amended closing statement for Monday's closi … continue reading

If It Fits Your Face

If It Fits Your Face
Upon awakening this morning, I looked at the clock and when glancing at the time, I considered it was the hour to get up, so I did. Well, not ten minutes later and while getting myself prepped for the day, I glanced at the wall clock, and to my surprise, I was up a good hour and a half before my regular time. Of course this has happened a few times … continue reading

Little Lotta Plump

Little Lotta Plump
I wasn't as early to office this morning, and mostly due to my needing to get some errands run before the rush hour started. I was unfortunately being detained by a guy driving an old and very dented pick-up truck, and since I was driving on a long two-way street, I had to endure his slow driving, smoking, and flicking his cigarette ashes out his w … continue reading

Close Every Door

Close Every Door
Just this morning, I was noticing a heavy dew on the ground, which again is yet one more indication that the days of cold are not far off. Someone said something to me today about being happy the hot days are over and ready to embrace winter, but then stopped herself and said, "Not long into winter I'll be mourning the loss of summer." Yes, that's … continue reading

They Ghosted Me

Once my early morning chores were finished, I went out and checked on several clean-up jobs which had taken place late yesterday. They all looked good, so I sent a text to the worker telling him I was pleased, which I always try to do whenever someone does a good job. In these times, far too many focus on the bad jobs other do, while neglecting to … continue reading

Usually Come Home Shorn

Usually Come Home Shorn
It was certainly a cool one this morning, and when seeing the ground fog for the first time this season, became the harbinger of what's ahead of us. I have no problem with the cool nights as long as we don't get an early frost because most of our vegetable gardens had a late start this year.After getting myself situated for the day, I drove ove … continue reading

Pages Out Of A Coloring Book
With it being another Sunday morning, I arrived at office early enough to comfortably get my contemplative prayer session completed. Today's was more memorable in that there were few if any distractions which when there are too many, become problematic with my regimen. I'm sure all of you've had those instances where no matter how much you try to c … continue reading

Acute Episodes of Memory

Acute Episodes of  Memory
In spite of my having arrived at office plenty early to get some some necessary real estate work accomplished, I wasn't able to pull my real estate hat off until it was approaching lunchtime, and only because of the walk-in's and phone calls I had to attend to. As I mentioned just yesterday, when dealing with these crazy times of real estate sales, … continue reading

Now Considered An Apostate

Now Considered An Apostate
While on my way to office this morning, I was finding the cool morning air to be invigorating, but of course those dark thoughts of winter being not far off, began creeping in. Being the hater of winter weather that I am, I could live with days like today for a full 365.After grabbing a small cup of coffee at a convenience, I headed straight to … continue reading
