It’s been 2 weeks since the fall from grace but the good news is, patient zero is coming along very well.  Physical therapy has been the order of the day.  The hip is hurting but there is actual walking (with a walker), getting up and down, climbing steps, and other exercises.  Coming home later this […]

A Tale Of Two Islands - Keys Disease Vs. Practice Aloha...

Come to just about any island near the tropics and you will find life runs at a much slower pace than what you may be used to, especially if you come from some big city up north.  Traffic moves slower, people walk at a much more relaxed pace, and there doesn’t seem to be any […]

6 Years...

Wow. Another year and the Fritter is still going strong.  Amazing.  When I started this little voyage I had no idea where it would lead and if it would even last, yet here we are, still sailing along, at least digitally if not on the water. It has been fun though, and never seeming to […]

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 […]

The weekend I was dreading never came to pass.  In fact, it was downright quiet and boring.  Nothing unusual happened and things seem to be back to normal.

It’s been downright boring around here over the past month.  Not a whole lot of anything going on other than the Lobster Season kicking off.  I’ve had no motivation to do much more than try to make rent every week, feed my fat ass, and little else.  But, here are a few tidbits until the […]

Hangin' With A Supermodel...

I know some of you have been wondering why I have been posting all the pictures and news of Nikki du Plessis here on the Fritter.  While the male followers are surely enjoying the eye candy, some of you female wimmen types may be annoyed that I seem to have strayed off the minimalist path […]
