THIS page has a listing of all my blog posts, starting with the most recent. I briefly took a steep departure from my usual blog topics because I needed a place to continue working with the Nose Work Practice group I’ve run (in person) for the past five years – and this seemed to be the most practical way to reach them!
So, I spent a week or so posting our on-going “Practice-At-Home” nose work training updates, exercises and tips here. Fortunately, it didn’t take as long as I expected to migrate everyone over to a dedicated Facebook group page, so I went back to normal blogging again. Yay! The rest of you hopefully enjoyed watching a small sampling of what I do to supplement our retirement income in the real world.

OK, I’ve come to the conclusion one can only stare at a bird-feeder for just so long before going bonkers. Rhonda agrees. Chickadees are simply too small to consider proper prey – and besides, Mom won’t let her out on the upper deck to chase them. This past week, along with bird-watching; I’ve made aContinue reading “Trick or Treat? BOTH!”
Running errands this past year has taken on a much different rhythm. I really need to get more walking in, and I intend to, but for now it seems I just drive from place to place – and wait. I started out my day early and achy, bothered by the wind and the massive weatherContinue reading “Being Grateful for Birds”
I feel like an airplane pilot, denied permission to land after a long flight. Being forced to circle the airport endlessly, not knowing when I might be allowed to complete my flight and come to a rolling stop. I find I suddenly want the flight to be over. I want off this dang plane. IContinue reading “In a Holding Pattern”
