This is truly my favorite holiday.   No gifts, no specific religion, or anything bothersome. Just Being Thankful for what we have.

I Like it!


Hope your Thanksgiving is Warm and Wondeful!




No I’m Not! Am I ?

February 1, 2013

Most days I stop at a Dunkin’ Donuts for a cup of coffee on my way to work.  Its a store I frequent and the people there don’t have to ask what I want. Medium coffee regular.  I walk in, say hello, pay for the coffee, say see ya later and I’m out the door.

Recently I went in and a new young woman was behind the counter.  Asked what I would like, I told her.  I gave her my debit card, she charged me $1.89.  Usually its $2.02.  I didn’t think much of it right away and walked out to my car. Put my cup into the cup holder, and started driving.  At the next  traffic light while stopped I looked at the reciept.  “senior discount”


This bugged me all day.  All of the other servers at the Dunkin Donuts store saw me as a …..  regular… wait.  Normal… no,   um….   Not a senior.  Do I look old?   I’m only 56.   My hair is mostly gray.  But….   Why all of a sudden….

The next day another server charged me $2.02.  I was happy.

The next day after, The young woman stated, “with that card you can get a free donut”.



I have an AARP card.  It was sent to me a couple years ago.  You just kinda get it after you turn 50.  So I filled it out. You can get discounts on stuff.  Why not.   She saw it in my wallet when I opened. it!

That was it.  Not that I look older!!!!

It think.

See you soon!

man proceeded to let lo


ose a loud… flatulent.

She turned to everyone and said. “Well I guess I started the year off with a bang!

Can’t make this stuff up.  We all laughed so hard we cried.

Then I got called in.  Cortisone shot.   We’ll see how it goes.  I told my buddy “Jack” I needed to be read

Happy St. Andrew’s Day from Oscars Tavern

November 30, 2012


In my desire to post more often, I said to myself:”

Hey, Try to post at least once a week. ”

So here I am week 2.  I’m impressed to say the least.  With the flood of comments I recieved from last weeks post ( Thanks Terri ) I did decide to use Oscars Tavern as the Blog of choice.  That blog allows me to be more playful, make up stuff and then share real life.

Yeah.. Thats it.

Not knowing what to name this Post today made me look at the calendar. Its St. Andrew’s Day in Scotland.  You can Google it if you wish.  I have a sweater from Scotland with the St. Andrews Golf Course Logo on it. Got it many years ago while traveling in the U.K.   Still fits me.  Gosh, that had to be in the… 80’s?

Speaking of old,  my twin grandchildren will be 11 this weekend.  Eleven!   Yikes!  Time flies when you’re having fun. Or something like that.  I was supposed to be in Florida this week for their birthdays but it just didn’t work.

Busy as ever, gotta run.

Thanks for reading!  Hope to see you soon!



2012, Work, Home, Sandy,BP,Nellie, Norman, Isabel, Gulf …. to name a few

November 19, 2012

Hi Everyone!  My last real post was quite a while ago.  I do enjoy writing them and do enjoy everyone’s comments.  I’ve even made a few friends! I miss it.

Knowing that I can only fit one blog into my schedule, I’m trying to decide which one stays.  (Cue The Clash)  I like Oscars Tavern, as it gives me flexibility to wing small thoughts under a theme.  Conditionally Satisfactory is me.  More open.  Not hiding behind the bar.  I would mix both as “Oscar” obviously but can’t decide which Blog Title to keep.  Any suggestions?

This post title is a summary or 2012.

Very busy at work. My real job. Overwhelmed.  A good thing to be in this economy.  I used to write these posts during meetings or lunch. Now I’m leading the meetings, and working through lunch.  (not much pay increase)   Still traveling once a month to Puerto Rico.

Home – Busy as well.  Trying to simplify, I’ll call it.   Without much success.  Still keeps me busy.

Sandy – More recent – Hit us. Thank God not much damage, 10 days with no electricity – Make you appreciate what you dont have!!

BP – Still battling high blood pressure.  Maintaining. I wanted to be rid of it by now…. 😦

Nellie – My schnauzer of 9 years just couldn’t keep on and sadly passed.  After spending thousands of dollars to keep her going I lost her.

Norman and Isabel – After a couple months of emptiness, I got a puppy(s).   Note to self:  Never try to train 2 dogs at once!

Took a few trips to Sunny Florida!  With 2 of my 3 kids there.  It keeps looking better and better.

Those are a few things to name that have kept me off the page.  I’ll go more into them as I try to write.

Thanks to those who hung in with me!

Wish me luck!

Thanks as always for reading!   Once I figure out what blog I’ll use, I plan to completely re-build!  May need your help!
