Puppy Love
Posted By : Nancy Schess

I am pretty sure I’ve written a variation of this blog before, but I am even more smitten now, so I am writing it again.   About six months ago, my grand puppy came into our family as a rescue.  He is a brown Labrador mix with just the sweetest eyes.  While it takes him a little time to relax, once he knows you, you can’t miss all of that boundless

The Landline
Posted By : Rona Gura

Do you call anyone on their landline phones any longer?    I was calling a friend from my cell phone over the weekend. As I tapped onto her contact information, both her cell number and home number came up. I knew that there was a good chance that she would be home so, for a moment, I was torn as to which phone to call. I ultimately opted to call h

If someone would have told me, last Friday, that all 4 New York sports teams would win on Sunday, I would have never believed it!   A 4 win Sunday has not happened for 14 years.  And, the Jets seemed like they would be terrible this year.  Even though the Giants won last week, they lucked into the victory on a missed kick.  So even getting one foot

Yet Another Pandemic Shift
Posted By : Nancy Schess

Has anyone else notice that stores are not stocked the way they used to be?   I have been trying to fill in with a few pieces of clothing for the upcoming season. This is a sort of ordinary and regular tradition.  Frankly, when we did school clothes shopping with the kids it was always an excuse for me to buy something new too. You know, hopping o

Football Season
Posted By : Rona Gura

I have become what one would term as a “football widow.” The only sport my husband is truly passionate about watching is football.

Folks know my preference to work outdoors. Not hard labor (of course I have the ability); just setting up on my deck with much the same accoutrements I enjoy at when in my office (where I draft today’s commentary). The internet, cordless phone, iPhone, iPad and MacBook all facilitate a seamless transition from a desk inside to a comparative outside
