I'm Just Saying

It’s a shoe-in

Nothing drove the point home of what a country bumpkin I am than reading a recent survey which suggests the average American woman owns 25 pairs of shoes.

Twenty-five.

I own six.

And two pairs are riding boots and one pair are muck boots (insulated for the winter, mind you, and considered quite the luxury).

Out of orbit

A few days ago, NASA successfully utilized the world’s first planetary defense technology demonstration and smacked into an asteroid. On their first try.

This was so mind-boggling that it took my attention away from a Tik Tok video featuring an obsessive-compulsive cat.

Putting my back into it

After ducking and dodging Covid 19 for over two years with double vaccinations and boosters, the virus found furtive opportunity through our church’s congregation and followed us home.

For us, a relatively light case: two days of feeling pretty punky and, as so many experience, fatigue, that was more irritating than anything else.

My English mother often pointed out in photographs of the late Queen Elizabeth II, that “We’re only five years apart,” generally in regard to appearance.

“She’s gone quite gray, hasn’t she?” was one comment. “You know she’s only five years younger than me.”

‘Leapin’ Lagartos!’

We’re used to hearing the relentless Ka-BLAM of target shooting gearing up for deer season, and certainly used to the sight of harvested deer, bound to the front of vehicles (“No, Timmy, that’s not Rudolph, stop crying”), or lying in the back of a pickup at our local gas station.

Some dry humor

I can’t help but to remember when weather related events made the national news, oh, maybe once a month: a tornado ripping through one community, a hurricane making landfall somewhere else, and wildfires out west. It’s pretty obvious to us all that now it seems weather makes the news nearly each day. And that news is generally catastrophic.
