Unplugged

I unplugged a bit this weekend. Other than football scores, I heard no news, weather or other sports. Just pulled my wings in to reset my bearings a touch. Back to work this morning and listening to the news about the shooting in Arizona of 20 people. An assassination attempt on a congresswoman that critically wounded her, but killed six …

Squandered

My hybrid is cruising the dusk streets of Uxbridge, Ontario at the moment. Before you ask, yes…it is illegal to text and drive in Ontario, but I am not texting…I am blogging, so deal with it. Have just cleared the lights of town and heading for home. Awaiting me there is an evening with the girlfriend and the Doberman. The …

Plowing Snow

This is one of those mornings… You know those mornings…when at oh-five hundred you are woken by the passing snow plows.

The last couple of days, now that I am off the sleepy drugs and getting my energy back, I am still having naps but listening to some audio books whilst laying down. Today and yesterday, I …

Snow Gods

I admit…I slept through most of today again. Hoping this may be the last day like this, though. Finally starting to feel myself again…just as the snow dances down from the sky again. Perhaps the snow gods showed pity on me, but by the end of New Years day we had nothing left other than slight piles left by snow …

Dark Window

Dark out my window again. Funny how that happens each night.  I keep expecting Mother Nature to try and fool me sometime, but it has yet to happen. Sitting in my office with a heating blanket on my lap.  The Doberman is laying on his bed behind me trying to ignore my tapping fingers as he and I listen to …
