Aftermath: the forgotten haircut

When irony occurs, It’s both amazing and amusing. I’ve received several benefits and insights from that missed haircut last week. Go figure. Mistakes have a way of providing those things. First, Kris, the stylist, was gracious about my no-show. How does he do it? I’m not sure if I could be as forgiving. This a… Continue reading Aftermath: the forgotten haircut

Other People’s Time. It’s a Pretty Big Deal

  I considered some New Year’s resolutions. Then I thought, “That’s stupid. Just make better habits.” That’s all resolutions are: better habits.  Here’s my Happy New Year habit proclamation to all seven people reading this post: “I will be punctual for appointments. If not on time, I shall be early!” Simple. Everything’s written in my… Continue reading Other People’s Time. It’s a Pretty Big Deal

Be a Houseguest Rockstar With These 10 Tips

It wasn’t a new year’s resolution, but 2019 has turned out to be the “Year of the Friend” visits around the country. The only reason it happened is this: I invited myself. Ugh. I can hardly write about these impositions. Mom is, no doubt, rolling her eyes out loud at me, because people with manners… Continue reading Be a Houseguest Rockstar With These 10 Tips

Oh, When the Saints, Go Marchin’ In

/Bobbe White/10.21.18/ Recently, Jenna, my daughter-in-law, and I popped into Pappion Artistry, a petite New Orlean’s area gallery.

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

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.

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

 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!

Get It, Girl

wtad.com/white pages/7.19.17 “When you know your why, you can endure anyhow.” John O’Leary     Last Tuesday was a difficult day, one of many, because that’s life.  There was the day we had to take Dad’s keys away. That was a doozy. Or maybe when we moved Dad into the Veterans Home – without Mom.… Continue reading Get It, Girl
