The Weekly Smile for 3/30/2020 #weeklysmile

It’s been one of those days.

Someone stole my mood ring.  I don’t know how I feel about that.  I broke my scale, a real weighty problem, let me tell you! I couldn’t get my car out of “Park”, so I’ve just been idling all day. And then my joke about letting the air out of my tire fell flat.  Which reminds me, what do you get if you drop a piano down a mine shaft?  Ab minor.  Get it?  Ab, that is musical symbols for A-flat? And the minor chord? So, a flat miner, like someone who works in a … oh, never mind.  See? What did I tell you about my lack of timing today?  It’s been going on since I lost my watch…

Sigh.

The Weekly Smile for the 23rd of March, 2020 #weeklysmile

I can procrastinate with the best of them.  Why do today what can be put off until tomorrow?  One thing that I am usually pretty good at is taking down the Christmas tree.  Every year it comes down on the first weekend after New Years Day.

This year something came up that weekend.  And then I was away for several weekends.  And there were emergencies.  And I forgot on others.  And I was busy. And…

OK, no more excuses.

I took down the Christmas tree yesterday, over 2 1/2 months later than usual. Continue reading

Although it is frigid out there this morning, it looks like Spring might actually be here!  I know, it was a relatively mild winter, so I don’t have a lot to complain about, yet the arrival of spring is always welcomed.

When I was on Cape Cod at the end of the week, I saw many flowers in bloom.  My favorites were the snowdrops.  Here are some in front of my house. Continue reading

This was a very odd week and the week coming up will be odd as well.  On a good side, this is what I consider “Democracy Week” in our small New England town.  If you remember, last week I talked about setting up a “Meet the Candidates” night for local candidates.  This coming Tuesday is when we elect town officers.  On Thursday we will have Town Meeting, in which the people of the town will vote on things like budget items that are different  from the normal. Saturday we had the School Budget meeting, where the town votes on the school budget.

There was little to smile about as this meeting seemed to last forever ;)  But it is important to attend and participate.  In the end I was in the little auditorium for five hours. Continue reading

The Weekly Smile for 3/2/2020 #weeklysmile

Last week was a very strange week with some major ups and downs.  Looking back, though, I do see one up that sticks out, a Meet the Candidates Night at our town hall.

For the last several years, perhaps 5, our Lions Club has sponsored a candidates night for local candidates. We started with all candidates that would be on the March ballet, but found it was too unyieldly, so we narrowed it down to just candidates for town offices.

Last year the person who organized it passed away.  When it came time for it this year, I raised my hand.  So a I wrote the letter to the candidates, someone else got the list, someone else called a local lawyer that we’ve been using as a moderator to see if he was available and, well, others were involved as well.  On Tuesday we arrived early and set it up.  After the candidates arrived and the moderator was ready, I said a few words of welcome and turned it over to the moderator.

Weekly Smile for 2/24/2020 #weeklysmile

I had the perfect smile for today planned for weeks, and then everything changed with just hours to go.  Sigh.  Hopefully next week… So instead, I will talk about the weather ;)

It was sunny and relatively warm over the weekend.  I did spend my usual time playing with the dogs, which means, throwing balls, running, chasing, begin chased, squatting down to their level to play tug of war, etc. Years ago one of my dogs like playing with teenagers more than me.  No more ;) I also walked them.  And I walked myself without dogs.  I walked in the woods and on the beach on Cape Cod.  I walked up snowy hills in New Hampshire.  I walked in the country and village.  I did a 5 mile run, which is mostly beside the beach.  I spend a couple of hours chipping ice off of my driveway in NH.  I cut firewood.  I walked around my backyard with a camera.  All in all, I am sure I was outside for at least six to eight hours on each of Saturday and Sunday.  And I loved it!  I’d much rather be out than in.
