Yellow Bird

Posted by Marlinee on Aug 21, 2017 in Middle Age

I was walking home the other day and saw a yellow bird. But of course there is much more to this story. I was walking home on Oriole Parkway, a Toronto street in an otherwise leafy and urban area with a volume of traffic and illicit speed that makes it more like a major roadway, [...]

Dressed to kill

Posted by Marlinee on Dec 2, 2012 in Middle Age

According to Google, Mr. Dressup’s (aka Ernie Coombs) 85th birthday was this week. Well actually, he died 11 years ago so no need to run out and buy a belated present although flowers might be in order.

Posted by Marlinee on Aug 19, 2011 in Middle Age

These are more things I would do if I had magical powers: • Become a plant whisperer. I would talk to the weeds and explain why they should get out my garden, and find out from the legitimate plants what I am doing wrong.

Do you believe in magic?

Posted by Marlinee on Jul 21, 2011 in Middle Age

All the hype surrounding the last installment of the Harry Potter movies reminded me that magic would be a very useful skill. This is what I would do if I had magical powers. • Learn Catish. That way I could ask Dennis why he likes to sleep on the bathmat and why he is so [...]
