    Love, My Way

    Today’s Bloganuary post is: How do you show love? I’m not sure I show love the way everyone would prefer I show it. I’m not big on public displays of affection, for example, or even a lot of private displays of affection, although I am a hugger.  But I am sure that I love big, […]

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: What was your dream job as a child? I didn’t think much about adulthood as a kid. I spent a lot of time reading, absorbing, and learning, but I didn’t wonder how any of that would translate into a method of making money in the future. I was content with just […]

    Best Day Ever

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: Describe the happiest day of your life. October. Just a few months after Obergefell v. Hodges, requiring states to license and recognize same-sex marriage, I married the woman of my dreams.

    Oh That Smell

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: Do you have a memory that’s linked to a smell? I could probably think of many smells that evoke memories, some good, some bad. (Bad = Bourbon St. on any given night). But the one good smell that brings back great memories would have to be the smell of a mess […]

    I’ll Take Four Wheels

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: What is your preferred mode of travel? This one’s pretty easy. Gail is in a wheelchair. I have limited mobility. That makes many forms of travel difficult. I can’t even imagine trying to deal with the hassle of Gail getting on and off of a plane. Maybe a train would be […]

    I Just Can’t

    Today’s Bloganuary prompt is: What chore do you find the most challenging to do? I’m not fond of chores at all, but there are some that are definitely more challenging than others for me. It mostly boils down to the height of the chore. I can’t bend. I can’t reach the ground in any way, […]
