Correct Spelling?

Correct Spelling?

I’m working on a book in which an egg hatches a caterpillar.  I want to describe the egg as miniscule.   My spell checker immediately changes it to minuscule.  When I insist that I want miniscule, the word gets a red underline as an…

My First Visit to Planned Parenthood

I was 17. I did not consider myself a sexual being. The sex-ed class at my high school was mainly a vocabulary lesson. And I had no idea what an erector set had to do with babies. And whatever sex was, we weren’t supposed to do because it would cause babies. And babies would ruin our lives.

I’d had trouble getting a tampon in and I didn’t believe my then boyfriend (now husband for the past 48 years) when he explained…

Two Kinds of Theft

Two kinds of thieves

My mother, who is 92 and uses a walker, was pushing a cart full of her groceries to her car. A man followed her. When she opened the trunk to put in her groceries, he opened the hood and appeared to remove something.

He told her there was something seriously wrong with her car and she needed an $8500 part to fix it, which he just happened to…

Sears Dryer Installation Blues

We bought a washer and dryer from Sears online.

The first time the delivery man had both the washer and the dryer on his truck. He delivered and installed the washer. But the washer pan was too close to the wall for a back installation, so the dryer would need to be vented on the side. The dryer is switchable. But the driver did not know how to switch it. So, he took the dryer back to the warehouse. He delivered and installed the washer. He also left the vent pipes and elbow…

Sanders vs. Trump

Yesterday I met a man who was a Donald Trump fan.

I asked why.

He said he likes the fact that Trump is a businessman.

I said, Trump has bankrupted three companies yet managed to make millions for himself while destroying his employees’ pensions.

He said that’s just because laws…

The Pope is Coming

The Pope is coming! The Pope is coming! And some of it fell on my city.

I admire and respect this Pope, even though I’m not Catholic. But he’s not a rock star. I don’t understand the magic of being in the crowd when he speaks.

I live in the green zone. That means that buses won’t be running through my neighborhood when his eminence is here. If I drive a car out of…

Barnes and Noble's Mistake

In 1978, I wrote a picture book story: Ladybugs for Loretta. My friend Francie illustrated it. Because our only publication option was print (ebooks hadn’t been invented yet) we decided to limit the colors to black and red. That meant two pieces of art for each…

My Summer Vacation

This summer I reverted to elementary school.

I met up with a couple of women who were my friends in 3rd grade nearly 60 years ago. Anne brought jacks, and Alison reminded us of the rules.…

48 years

My husband and I just celebrated 48 years of marriage. I feel incredibly lucky. Lucky that I met him. Lucky that he has been my friend this long. Lucky that we still enjoy the same things, and doing things together. Lucky that we are still both alive and healthy. But knowing that we have taken care of each other, and can do so again if necessary. We have managed to survive when we both lost our jobs and had to survive on food stamps and…

Welcome home

Welcome Home Mom

          My mother has become the newest member of our gang here at the nursing home.  When you think things could get no weirder, well they do.

          I haven’t really come to grips with how I feel about this yet.  I know that I am angry over how mom ended up living her…

One Filmmaker's Point of View on Racism

Over the weekend I attended a movie entitled, “I’m not Racist ... Am I?” by Catherine Wigginton Greene.

Here’s the summary that got me interested in seeing this movie: “What if this next generation could transcend racism? One year, 12 teens, on a remarkable journey to face racism and white privilege, and to have the conversations most of us are too afraid to have. Once they push through naivete, guilt and tears, what…

Repeating Conversations in My Head

I have a bad habit of repeating conversations in my head.  Or, sometimes, I use past conversations as a model for future conversations and play them in my head.  Either way, I’m having conversations with someone who isn’t there – which I freely admit is insane.

I have sat or walked or tried to go to sleep while these crazy conversations play in my head.  I know exactly how they will go before they finish, but I…

Paul Watson's Passport Lifted by Stephen Harper

Paul Watson's Passport taken away by Harper Government

I'm not an activist, I'm not a pacifist, I am a 70 year old senior whose main aim in life is peace and tranquility for my remaining years.  Yesterday I was told about the enclosed article and after reading it I am a very concerned Canadian born citizen that this story could happen, and although it happened several years ago it is a sign of what is to come now that Bill C-51 has passed. Seemingly Harper…

Trying to Give Stuff Away - Free

I’m reorganizing my house and giving away stuff I don’t need.

I had a comfy couch – not new, but certainly presentable.  Habitat for Humanity said they’d take it if it was on the 1st floor.  I…

        When I got seated at Jack Browning’s new steak house on a Sunday morning alone I immediately thought this was a ridiculous idea and I needed to stop reading all the self-help stories online.  The newest ones were things to do alone and I was doing one of them right now.  I was at a very expensive restaurant…

The Best Farmers Markets in Toronto

You may think, “Why bother going to a farmer’s market when there’s a grocery store a block away?” 

Farmer’s markets give you the opportunity to eat local, so you know where your food is coming from! There is a larger variety of produce; instead of an orange carrot, why not a purple carrot?

These are all reasons why you should shop at farmer’s markets, and the following are some of the best farmer’s markets in Toronto as featured…
