While it was good to get the tooth fixed the other day, there is a downside.  As is common with just about any trip to a medical facility, the doctor is compelled to load up the patient with prescriptions and drugs.  And now, I’m a part of it. I despise taking any kind of drugs.  Even […]

5 years.  I cannot believe it.  The Fritter is 5 years old today.  When I started this thing I had no idea where I was going with it, but here we are, still going strong.  Still growing.  Still snarky as ever. Of all the things I’ve done, of all the adventures, all the trials and […]

Seriously.  We need to sit down and reboot the entire year.  Shit can all the current holidays and start over again from scratch.  And the rules should be: Only one holiday per month.

A Rough Week...

Firstly, let me say that I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of sympathy and messages that I have received over the last few days.  From comments here, to Tammy’s touching post on the peanut, to some of my followers on Twitter, it’s really helped me get through all this.  Obviously, the loss of a pet […]

It’s […]

This was sent to me recently: Will I Live to see 80? (Here’s something to think about.) I recently picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, she said I was doing fairly well for my age. (I am past Sixty Five). A little concerned about that comment, I couldn’t […]

I mentioned earlier that my trip up north was to visit relatives and family, all of whom are near or over 80 years old. Everyone appears to be in good health. There are signs of slowing down that you would expect at that age. Hearing loss, aches and pains, a cabinet full of drugs that […]

The advances that have been made in photography over the last few years have been incredible. Our iPhones now have cameras capable of taking images with amazing clarity. NASA has sent out probes which can photograph other planets in minute detail. Digital photography has progressed to amazing results. You can actually snap a photo of […]

What does a pickle, a Civil War POW camp, and Xmas have in common?

As I was out and about today I stopped in the Dollar Store for a couple of things. As I was walking by the Xmas decorations, amidst all the bows, tinsel, and garland, I noticed…pickle ornaments. I wondered, what was up with the vegetable shaped ornaments? Sure there were other tree hangers of stuff you […]
