Evesdropping humor

Listening to a 45 year old grandson repeat back the questions and answers of the Family Fued game show to his 101 year old grandma, is my new favorite thing! "What do you have on when making love?" Him: "I bet it's the TV!"  Her: "Your poor wife." Show: "Socks!" Her: "If you were keeping... Continue Reading →

Christmas memories

Facebook Memories -- December 6, 2016  It is so interesting decorating someone else's Christmas tree. You aren't emotionally invested in these baubles that you nestle on branches.  You don't see family members and Christmases past as you unwrap that ornament that has been passed down from mother to daughter. You don't see that huge blizzard... Continue Reading →

Bizarre foods through necessity 

I was telling my client about how my Grandpa always brings up possums in conversation.  Then I preceded to tell her how he likes to wait at the meat display in the grocery store and make comments like, "You never find a good possum steak anymore. Sure wish they'd sell possum here."  When he was... Continue Reading →

Sharing the weather

Stuff that they weren't hired to do. Like your gardening and legal stuff." C: "I'm not saying they aren't... Continue Reading →


September 6th, 2015--Facebook Memories Took my client's dog--GG--out for a walk as soon as I got to work this morning.  She came back in pretty wet, so I rubbed her down. Told my client, "She's still rather wet GG, so don't let (insert client's name) on your lap." Client: "I think I can manage not... Continue Reading →

Food battle (part …)

June 17, 2017 -- Facebook Memories  Setting the stage: The bread had a large bubble that went through half the loaf. 🍞 Morning: Place the toast in front of my client cut into 4 little triangles--its also that 90 calorie small bread. Not a big piece at all! 🍞 "I know you aren't hungry, but... Continue Reading →
