Give Life a Happy Shrug (or Remember Your Umbrella)


A long (very, very) long time ago I was out in a canoe with two teenage friends. It was all terribly Huckleberry Finn. Read More

Boy Meets Cat, Cat Changes Everything


So are you like me, dig a feel-good story? Especially one involving a cat? Then read on, kindred spirit.

Lorcan Dillon is one adorable Irish lad. However he suffers from a mean anxiety disorder called “Selective Mutism.” At age 7, he gets overwhelmed in social situations, leaving him speechless and lonely.

Enter Jessi-Cat. Who changes everything…

Since the cat has become part of the Dillon household, according to Lorcan’s mom, Jayne: “Lorcan is able to connect ‘love’ to Jessi-Cat, something he can’t do with people…she’s been a great support to him when things have been really hard. She is without a doubt the best friend a boy could have and has made a huge positive impact in his life.”

Cliffnotes: Cats rule.

Nice story to start a Sunday, no?

A Warm and Fuzzy for You….


We all need a smile now and then, eh? This smile is brought to you by the PBS show, Antique Roadshow.

A humble, sweetheart of a man named Ted brought in a rug to be appraised when the tv show came to the town he lived, Tucson.

The said rug hung on the back of a chair for generations.

This is how it unfold….

(Oh, btw, the money shot is at the end but I really think you should watch the whole thing. What’s 3-ish minutes out of your life?)

The Afterword. Ted sold the blanket for an undisclosed amount.

Said Ted:

“We said, ‘We can’t keep this. This is too valuable. What would the kids do with it? Would they fight over it?’ So we decided we would have to sell it.”

It is now in a museum on display.

A win, win.  Such a lovely ending for a lovely man. I just never tire of this clip. Hope you don’t either.

No pressure but…


Enjoy your day.

Who I Am, etc.


I love blogging and Twittering (Facebook, less so). My family, my friends are sensational rockstars and I’m insanely blessed to have them in my life. I am basically the little drummer boy in comparison to them so late bloomers? Power to us. I’m a fan of smart snark, I can bang out tunes on a piano. I nurse both a daily latte and chocolate habit. I collect speeding tickets. I think being kind is the greatest strength. Above all, I admire those who, somehow, manage to make the world a little nicer of a place. Thank you much for stopping by. Cheerio!

In the sunset of dissolution, everything is illuminated by the aura of nostalgia, even the guillotine. No wonder we are depressed.
