Laughing with Di – September 2019

 Improvisation. Not just being comedic and throwing out dialogue that pops into your head. It is also when you want to do something, you don’t have the right tool for the job, and you make up something. My dad’s favorite saying was, “Necessity is the mother of...

Laughing with Di – August 2019

Laughing with Di

Jonathan Swift’s, Gulliver, had his adventure when he discovered the Lilliputians. Here’s my adventure dabbling in the DIY world of miniatures. Let’s have a laugh. A snicker? A chuckle? Favorite stores in Santa Clarita to find “little” treasures are Hobby Lobby,...

Laughing with Di – June 2019

 Most of you probably have hundreds of photos on your phones, pods, pads and in the clouds – yes? Let’s have a laugh. I have trillions (not) of photos in albums dating back to, well, a long time ago. A photo album is a large tome, the inside of which contains pages of...

Laughing with Di – May 2019

What’s a morning like for a female “senior” at a health club? Let’s have a laugh… She parks a distance away from the front door: 1) additional walking time? or 2) less chance of a fender-bender? Your guess. Walks up the stairs (24 steps), picks a treadmill, she is...

Laughing with Di – April 2019

 Two mourning doves sit together on our patio wall in all of their sleek, silver-grey glory looking like they have an important job to do. Spring is approaching. Let’s have a laugh… So, Mr. and Mrs. Dove (we assume they are husband and wife and they mate forever) are...

Seasonal Changes… and Me

Ladies it is almost that dreaded time of year again.  No, I’m not talking about tax time.  I’m talking about something even worse to us.  That would be swim suit season! We should be looking forward to it… family outings to the lake or beach, vacations to exotic...

Framing for Mother’s Day

 The days and years go by and suddenly our children are grown. We wonder how the time passed so quickly and find ourselves wishing we could slow it down just a little. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to capture a few of those moments in time forever? Photographs...

Laughing with Di – March 2019

 Five friends in different parts of the country (“seniors” over the age of 70) keep in touch as often as possible. Currently, they communicate in cyberspace. Let’s have a laugh… To ring in the New Year, they planned a group FaceTime® on their iPads® shortly before...

Laughing with Di – February 2019

 Ahhh…”to have riches beyond the dreams of avarice,” (Scotty quote from “Star Trek: the Voyage Home”). Can this be done with coupons? Let’s have a laugh… Here’s what intrigues me about coupons. For those of you who are a family of two, many “coupon deals”...

Laughing with Di – January 2019

Looking and Feeling Your Best

Women, we are so hard on ourselves. We’re always checking to see how we measure up.  We try really hard by going to the hair dresser, the manicurist, the gym, sometimes plastic surgeons and last but not least we are always shopping for the cutest outfits. What we...
