A House, a Hound, a Horse and a Husband… Not Necessarily in That Order

Anyone who has owned a horse knows that they are a lot of work. Ditto with the hound and the house. Anyone who has ever had a significant other knows that relationships take a lot of time and caring. The more time and care you put into it, the better the relationship usually is.  This post has no intention other than to acknowledge those who sweep, shovel, sew, iron, rake, mow, boil or bake. Which is most everybody. We all have chores. Whoever you are, guy or gal, today I acknowledge you. I just spent a good hour raking horse manure in 92 degrees. Yes, in the hot sun. I don’t like doing it but I like it that I can. Even the worst of chores have something for which we can be thankful.

Sex Over Sixty? Ya Think?

Cover The Common Sense Guide to Good SexWho in the world ever drummed up the crazy notion that senior citizens aren’t sexy? My mother was in her eighties when she told me one of the volunteers at the hospital was being gossiped about because of her “promiscuity.” You mean they’re calling her a slut? She’s what… eighty something? Good grief, I didn’t really quite know how to respond. My mother had a coy smile on her face… making me wonder if she was bragging or complaining about her acquaintance’s escapades.
