Making Plans

As Robert Burns wrote:The best laid schemes o’ Mice an’ MenGang aft agley,An’ lea’e us nought but grief an’ pain,For promis’d joy! As I’ve posted on this blog more than once, I intend to write more regularly in this space. But, since I keep failing in keeping that commitment to myself, I’m going to try... Continue Reading →

No Longer “Ruth”less

Hello folx. I’m back. For those who missed me, it’s good to be back. I missed all y’all. For those who had hoped I wouldn’t return, I’m not sorry I’ve disappointed you. I’m not keeping you captive here, so if you dislike my little corner of the interwebs, you can mosey along. For those who... Continue Reading →

What Are We Rushing Toward?

After a longer-than-expected hiatus, I’ve returned to my blog. I have a lot of topics I could discuss, but my thoughts are jumbled. Until I sort them into some semblance of order, I’ll refrain from posting on those subjects. One topic that I feel ready to address is the idea of normalcy. Specifically, I feel...

Howdy, y’all. My posting schedule has been hit-and-miss, I know. Looking back, I’ve been getting something new posted about every other week, but that trend will likely slow in the coming weeks. I’m scheduled for a rotator-cuff surgery early next week. And, I’m assuming the recovery process will limit how often I can post. I’ll... Continue Reading →

SNAFU or FUBAR?

We’re seeing repeated reasons for social and political unrest: Police shooting Black, Indigenous, and other people of color and not being held accountable for it.... Continue Reading →

A Good Walk Spoiled…

I have a deep-seated hatred for the game of golf. Some call my feelings about the sport irrational. But I disagree. I grew up in southern Arizona. As a child, I was about as horse crazy as it is possible to be. A lot of golf courses dotted the desert landscape near where I grew... Continue Reading →

Not with a Whimper, But with a Bang

This week’s post will be all over the map. Buckle up, y’all. The language will be profane and definitely not appropriate for children, work, or those who are bothered by swearing. If that’s not your cup of tea, then perhaps move along to a different post.This week’s title refers to the political unrest we’re facing.... Continue Reading →

Like a Moth to a Flame

Howdy, y’all. Thanks for sticking with me, despite my occasional flaky behavior.Somehow, I didn’t get a blog post written last week. Although I’d have bet money that I wrote one and posted it. But I can’t find it in my files or on the website. Maybe I dreamt I had?I’ve had a LOT of truly... Continue Reading →

A Rambling, Shambling Post

I’m having a tough time figuring out what to focus on in today’s post. I don’t want to write about sheltering in place again this week. Partly because I don’t want to become an “all COVID, all the time” broadcast. Plus, not everyone has the luxury of sheltering in place. And a lot of people... Continue Reading →
