Watch out for snakes in the grass

Never walk barefoot through a cow pasture. That’s one of life’s lessons that I learned growing up on a farm — but not for the reason you might think. One bright summer day as a kid, I gingerly combed my toes through the grass at my cousin Dale’s farm. Why I was barefoot, I can’t ...

Color TV, my own phone — oh, to be that rich

When I grew up, I wanted to be rich. Really rich. So rich that my house would have TWO TVs. Both color, of course (rich kids didn’t have to suffer with black-and-white sets), and both with those massive cabinets and 25-inch screens. That’s how rich I wanted to be. It was my goal. I ...

Wanted: Elves for housework and light cobbling

Where are my elves? In the fable of “The Elves and the Shoemaker,” a poor shoemaker had only enough leather to make one final pair of shoes. The poor guy — let’s call him Harold — cut the leather and went to bed. According to the news report from the Brothers Grimm, when Harold and ...

Can-crashing cockatoos and critters raid curbside bins

It is my household duty to take out the trash. I don’t. I let our “trash panda” do it for me. The trash panda is the roly-poly raccoon that lives in the woods outside our rural home. He probably would move inside if we invited him politely. His bags are packed, ready to take up ...

Pondering stuff that only Italians will get

I was chatting with my bella cousin Mary Ann recently. Oh, bella means beautiful, for y’all non-Italians, BT dubs. Anyway, my cugina (come on now, you can figure that one out on your own, no?) and I were waxing nostalgic, philosophical, political and flipping hysterical as we laughed and ...

Cheers to 26 years of holding that cute guy’s hand

I’ve learned a lot of stuff in my 53 years circling the sun. Some of it really, really helpful. Some of it I immediately filed into the BFI dumpster, yo. But most of it accumulated over the last 26 years, since I married that cute boy with the adorable smile on Sept. 2, 1995. When you ...

What’s cool about mice in the kitchen? Nothing

You know what’s really cool about finding a mouse in your house? Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zip. Niente — that would be Italian for nuttin’. I know, I know. People think mice are cute. You know, because they’re all furry and fuzzy and squeaky. Hmpf. Plus, they’ve got those adorably ...

Next stop for college kid’s mom — Mayberyville

The thing about sending your kid back to college after spending an extended spring / summer / COVID break with him is... well, I don’t wanna. Loud, exaggerated HMPF. Er, maybe even supersonic SIGH. OK, fine, big old snotty SNIFF. All right, ya got me already — heaving SOBS of sadness, ...
