  • In loving memory

    For the past four years I go through this at this time........My eldest sister Lisa passed away just a few years ago. I just stood there and watched it happen. I couldn’t do anything to help. We had to pull the plug. No choice. And I just stood there.Lisa, I love you.
  • The voice of experience

    Girls, here’s a little tip:When you go to leave an erotic voice mail message for your SO, it might be a good idea to remember that she might not be the only person to hear it.Whoops.
  • France, lipstick, jobs and a microphone

    First, let me say how nice it was to see Mags back in the chatroom last night.Why won’t I ever learn? I’m still going around passing myself off as French. I’ve had a lot of French tourists on the boats lately and had some great opportunity to practice the language. They’ve been great with the tips, ...
  • Getting ready to make some moves

    Peace to all.Several things going on. I had a great interview last week with an insurance company. I used to be a Compliance Analyst years ago and, until the full-time academic job happens, I might go back into it. If this company offers me the job I will take it. I’d be stupid not to take it.Then, ...
  • Who needs SRS? I have the boats!

    I turn your attention away from the drama to my repeated efforts to harm myself……..First of all, at work on the docks I was not paying attention to how I was closing this short, heavy iron gate at the dock steps and whacked myself in the ass. I now have this nice little bruise on my left…..never min...
  • Don't worry

    I said I was confused. Yes, in some ways.But in other I never felt so alive.I haven’t been chained to my word processor like I have been recently. Besides my two history books which will be released about one every two years, I am doing more.I am also a fiction writer. I have two books there. The pr...
  • Lost weekend?

    I leave in a few minutes. Got visitation this morning, then I hit the docks later in the day.I have been doing a lot of writing lately. I have a complete book of fiction short stories and they needed to be re-entered. That’s been helping me keep my inspiration going.I still need to do the blood test...
  • One year later.......continued

    All I think about a lot these days is what it was like one year ago as compared to now. I was especially reminded of it as I had a therapist appointment, and her office is right by where I used to live with my friend. While I do talk to this friend on occasion, it is not very often these days. A few...
  • I want HRT!!!!

    I need to get in to the lab and get my blood work done so the endo can prescribe the right hormones. I really appreciate listening to you girls who are so knowledgeable about all this.  A special thanks to Bridgette, Ann and Lucy.Yes, I do walk around the apartment building as Mere. Maybe it isn’t a...
  • Me, one year later

    Here I am, one year later.At this time last year I was just thrown out of the house. I thought it was all over. It isn’t.I am so stiff this morning. On the one year anniversary of being thrown out I rented a van and got most of my stuff out of the house. The house I helped buy and pay for. I moved a...
  • Waiting for next week

    Next week is a rather dubious anniversary, so be prepared for me to be a basket case. Or, worse then ever as a basket case.The tour gig is still good. I had my daughter down there a few days, and one of the captains let her drive the boat on two occasions.I started teaching a brand new course at tha...
  • Blossoming

    I should be sitting here depressed that I am not working at that full-time job. I’m not. Quite frankly, right now I don’t care. I find it funny that whenever a school, or a publisher, has a problem I’m the first one they call because they know I get the job done whereas their top person dropped the ...
