I Get Around. Or so I’ve Heard.

Be sure to check out my post over at Life in the Boomer Lane today. It is one I wrote early in my blogging career and was read by only a few folk. Renee is very passionate about promoting awareness of issues concerning boomers and aging – and she does so with humor, compassion, and words that will make you spit your coffee all over the keyboard or laugh till you cry. Either way, there will be body fluids. Plus, she wears really cute shoes.

I also have a new blog “DreadMill Diaries” about my adventures in trying to whip myself (literally and figuratively) into shape. You can pop over there by clicking on the tab at the top (up there at the top of this page, on the left) if you’re interested. No need to follow both blogs – unless you’re a true glutton for punishment, that is. I’ll try to let you know on this blog if I post anything exciting (like if the DreadMill attacks, I choke that effin’ know-it-all other voice, or I commit some heinous crimes due to low blood sugar). It’s going to be an adventure.

And, if you didn’t see it already – I have a post that I wrote for Romantic Monday over at Edward Hotspur’s place.

There’s Good News…..And There’s Bad News…

First the good news.

It’s National Poetry Month, people – get your rhyme on!!!

I am Blogger of the Week over at The Byronic Man.  How about that!!  I won his  contest – “Question of the Week – best band name plucked from the headlines” with the delightful band name “Tainted Meat”.  They will be making their debut soon, I am sure.  Pink Slime (thank you, Lenore) is the opening act, of course.

My honey really, really liked my poem “Give up the Peanut Butter Cups and Nobody Gets Hurt” which was an entry in the group participation “Better Living Through Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups” event organized and masterminded by the legendary blogger, baker and chain-saw wielding Peg0leg.  It was so much fun, and the King Sized Peanut Butter cups waiting for me this evening after work was a example of delayed gratification (it isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, kids – get your gratification while you can – instant gratification whenever possible).


Today I am guest blogger over at The Monster in Your Closet.  Deb’s “For This I am Thankful” series has presented us with deep and thoughtful posts by very talented writers – make sure you read some of them if you haven’t already.  I have written – what else? – A POEM!!  Yes.  a poem.  Deb has the very cutest little boy, a tender heart filled with amazing strength, and an ability to write heartbreakingly beautiful words.  I am in awe of her amazing writing abilities and quite envious, if the truth be told.


Now for the bad news…


Oh, to hell with the bad news – let’s worry about that another day….Party on!
