I CAN’T DRAW, but once upon a time I had a mild motivation to try to develop some kind of artistic ability.


THE PRESENT PRESENTS some unique challenges.

I know the above sentence is an understatement, with coronavirus uncertainty and all of the other uncertain things in the world these days.

Today was the kind of news day which makes me breathe a sigh of relief I didn’t have to cover it, just because newsrooms were probably even busier than normal.


COLLEGE FOOTBALL MIGHT be cancelled, which seems par for the course in a totally crazy year.

I guess we’ll see, but, as I read the other day, I continue to root for a vaccine.

I think I’ll wait for the official announcements before I comment any more, but today’s news is disappointing.

I realize there are bigger fish to fry. I realize there are a lot more important, and a lot more serious, things going on in the world than whether football is played, but the prospect of a canceled season is disappointing nonetheless.

This post is a response to Sue’s prompt, which is, “totally.”

FOR REASONS UNKNOWN I woke up at 4 this morning, a Saturday morning on which I could have slept late.

Such a fact is funny to me because on work days my body does its best Rip Van Winkle impression and doesn’t want to move from the bed until it must.

Since I woke up at 4, I’ve been in a funny mood all day so I thought I’d try to think of a few funny things related to language.
