“A Good Sailing Day”

The winds, they are a blowin’ today. Skies are blue. Clouds are billowing. Air is crisp. And I LOVE it!

From early childhood and my first sailing days, these kinds of windy days have always made me feel excited and alive.

I guess I’ve passed this onto Cait. Not the love of sailing part, necessarily, but with assigning the description of windy days to “good sailing” days.

So when she, likewise, shares with me that it’s a good sailing day where she is, there is no need for further explanation. Message sent and received. Joy shared.

Please Stop Clicking on “Funny” Viral Videos of Animals Being Treated Cruelly

Can I just say… STOP! People, just stop clicking on supposedly funny videos where ignorant people are too unaware or just don’t care that they’re treating their animals cruelly. I won’t be linking to either video. Nor will I share any photos for either of these.

One was of a young woman in a rough neighborhood being accosted by two other young women. She was walking her Pug on a leash. When one of the other women came toward her, she flung her dog THROUGH THE AIR! WHILE ON THE LEASH! BY THE NECK! and smacked this woman so hard […]

Can you also tell that after investigating Call Blocking apps like Hiya (the absolute WORST for privacy violation) et al, that I would rather throw my phone away than use apps that are worse perpetrators than scammers for abusing your personal information and selling it over and over and over again to–forget highest–how ’bout any bidder?

Faces of My Family

These are the faces of my family. Time zone clocks on my desktop screen.

With Easter coming up, I think back to when all of my children lived in one time zone, never mind under one roof. That was many moons ago. They’re scattered to the winds now.

We have to work hard to all wind up in the same place.

When they were younger, we always took a week to get together at the shore with our extended families. It was glorious. We all loved it.

In order to entice them all back together, we’ve decided to reinstate that tradition.

So, for at least one week out of every year, there will only be one clock I […]
