I'VE BEEN CLEARED TO DRIVE! Physical therapist says "We'll see how it goes" before he gives me clearance to go back to work. I asked him how we'd know… "If I get in a crash, I flunk?"…  He laughed. I don't care. WATCH OUT PEOPLE. I'm going out tomorrow to do "errands"… I don't care […]


A Reasonable Explaination? (a rant)

Posted by Sue on February 28, 2008 in Random Thoughts, Rants |

Becky's post reminded me of something that has bugged me often but came to the surface once more with my sons' recent wedding. Maybe someone can give me a good reason and I can stop being pissed about it whenever it comes up. My frustration? The food. Specifically, left over food. Case in point: At […]


Cyberspace, Blogland and Friendship

Posted by Sue on February 27, 2008 in Celebrations, Random Thoughts |

We've all heard the good, bad and ugly about the internet. We all have personal tales of each as we've gone through this new world of cyberspace… well, maybe not so new now. I remember in high school when they started a computer club and the 'geeks' finally got a programming class added to the curriculum. […]


Kapgar Kwiz

Posted by Sue on February 25, 2008 in Tagged |

Shamelessly stolen from my blog- buddy Kapgar.  1. Do you like blue cheese? Ick. Ick. Ick. Does that answer the question? 2. Have you ever smoked heroin? Nope. Remember… I'm the one who has no reaction to Oxycoton (among other things). I have a feeling it wouldn't do anything for me either. 3. Do you own […]


Golf Widow Steps In*

Posted by Sue on February 24, 2008 in Random Thoughts |

I'm guest-posting for Sue today.  Nothing wrong; she's still getting back into the swing of things, but I'm unemployed and Sue is helping me not feel worthless by giving me occupation. I've been doing a lot of guest-posting lately, for that very reason.  I could mope around and feel sorry for myself, or I could […]


Not Yet

Posted by Sue on February 21, 2008 in Life, Random Thoughts |

I've been going to physical therapy three times a week for the past couple of weeks… and on into the future indefinately. From the beginning, I told my therapist that I had a couple of goals I wanted to meet. I wanted to be able to put on my own coat. Dressing can be frustrating […]


I Could Swear I Lived in Iowa

Posted by Sue on February 20, 2008 in Climate Controls |

Waking up this morning I had the impression I was living in the Arctic Circle… or Alaska. The actual temperature this morning as we were going to my physical therapy appointment was -13 degrees. That doesn't tell the whole story. The wind chill made it something like -40. This is stupid. Remember me? I'm the […]


I Think I’ll Stay Home, Thanks

Posted by Sue on February 18, 2008 in Life, Random Thoughts, Rants |

I have a new appreciation for what people who have to fly for a living, like Dave, must endure. The past two days have convinced me that perhaps man was not intended to fly… at least, in this day and age. * My son and his new wife were flying home from their honeymoon on […]


Valentine, A Love Story

Posted by Sue on February 14, 2008 in Celebrations, Deep Thoughts, Life |

At the risk of being sickening, I'm going to bring up some memorable moments from the wedding that touched me in ways that had very little to do with the bride and groom. My husband and I have been together almost 30 years. Over the years a few 'truths' have become evident. My husband doesn't […]


Uno!… Uh, I Mean, Benny!

Posted by Sue on February 13, 2008 in Life |

Even non-dog lovers probably didn't miss the announcement this morning that a beagle, Uno, had won Best in Show at the Westminster Dog Show. I've had a special place in my heart my whole life for beagles. When I was growing up, my first and only dog was a beagle. Toby. Since I was an […]
