Can’t You Just Sit There and Be Quiet?

    Nurse White shops for Korey’s recovery. (Note: side pocket wine is for the nurse.)   Last week, Korey, needed a nurse for post- dental surgery in Washington D.C. Mom to the rescue! Does having four wisdom teeth pulled in eighteen minutes count as surgery? I don’t know, because: I never got wisdom teeth.… Continue reading Can’t You Just Sit There and Be Quiet?

Leave it to Irvie: Goes Out With a Giggle

It’s been quite a week around here, since Dad died February 22nd. In honor of the fact that he died on George Washington’s birthday, a profile picture which I thought looked a bit presidential is  featured. Also, before we go any further, I apologize that this post at least twice as long (or more) than… Continue reading Leave it to Irvie: Goes Out With a Giggle

Why I Gave Him the Finger

To those I’ve interrupted, “Guilty as charged”.   It’s recommended that we find our “third place” to write, do taxes, work, read, pay bills, think, study, sketch, paint, workout or meditate. I tried a Third Place on Sunday.   What and where is your third place?   It’s not home, or work.   It is… Continue reading Why I Gave Him the Finger

Puppygate: gauging aging.

 Bobbe White/1.13.18.      We have an unconventional method for gauging aging at the White house. It involves baby gates to keep Lily White, the black Lab, from roaming room to room. After reading, you’ll understand how gates experience aging cycles, not unlike humans.   For Puppy Lily, we used 24” gates. She never attempted… Continue reading Puppygate: gauging aging.

HaPpY dO yEaR!

Bobbe White   My extremely wise friend, Lisa Pemberton, says, “Ask not what are you doing, but ARE you doing?” She knows me well. If anything speaks my truth, this is it.   When our son, Nick, was a little pup, he’d ask many times a day, “Doing?” We would tell him, but he never… Continue reading HaPpY dO yEaR!

The Only Thing Normal in My Life…

Wtad.com/whitepages/11.17.17 Bobbe White It was one of those days, when the universe says, “Not so fast, Kid!” Life is easy peasy? Watch this…”  Most of my laundry piles were washed, but unfolded.

HERE SHE GOES AGAIN

Most evenings and weekends, you’ll find me in a chair surrounded by oodles of wine corks. Wait…it’s not what you think. I am not obliterated, wasted or… Continue reading HERE SHE GOES AGAIN

WHEN GIRLS GET UGLY (good happens!)

Wtad.com/whitepages/110217 Bobbe White Were you a customer in our bank October 31? If so, please come back.  You saw us at our worst. We wore hideous housecoats, slippers, pajamas, curlers and facial masks. We looked awful. Photo shopping couldn’t help this bunch. You be the judge. It didn’t start out fun for me. While waiting… Continue reading WHEN GIRLS GET UGLY (good happens!)

Oh, Those Cubs, Always Full of Surprises

Wtad.com/whitepages/101317  Bobbe White On a sunny September 9th, Wrigley Field spread before us. It was my first visit. I now have a certificate that says so. The ballpark is spectacular, from the rooftop bleachers to our seats in the shade and I now have a greater appreciation for “Field of Dreams.” As we waited for… Continue reading Oh, Those Cubs, Always Full of Surprises
