A Budget? You Kidding Me? March 13, 2023

Do you have a budget? I have never had a budget. I don't know from budgets. I don’t want a budget. But I find myself being cornered into making one – whip and chair in hand. We call this - Wake-Up Call: The Advanced Course. I will be leaving my day job within a few months. I have seen the wagons circling for quite a while, but it is a different ball of wax when everyone parks it and hops down for a chat.

      I love these musings, Tulis. They are insightful, entertaining, and reflective for me.

      I never had a budget either but I guess I should get one too!

    Well done, Tulis. Facing and embracing aging is a privilege that not all are allowed. We are blessed to be among the chosen and we have a responsibility to lead others into the fray. I am pleased to know that we can continue to make the journey. Please keep us all posted regarding your stops along the way.

    Boy that’s the truth! But I remember when I turned 25, I was blown away by being a quarter of a century old!!! As for a budget…I haven’t had a regular income since 1978. My focus has been learning how to juggle!

      Yes juggling. That should be a budget type taught in school!

    Tulis!!! This is so dead on for so many of us who look at age as something that happens to others or as you put it “I thought I’d lived this long. I just never thought I be this old.” A budget!
    I was taught by practical Military German family and father who was Deputy Administrator of Finance for the State of South Carolina about Budget and looking to the future but honestly the future was always so far away. Until now. This is spectacular! Love it! And “there is no guidance no going back.” Horrifyingly Fabulous!

My Father Was An April Fool ~ Monday April 3, 2023

My Father was born on April Fools Day. Our relationship was rocky. Dad wanted things his way because he was the father. I know this because he told me. I wanted things my way because I was the daughter. He knew that because I told him. We drew our lines in the sand, and we waited for the other to blink. For me it was very simple. My father was usually wrong, and I was right.

March Madness – And The Women are WHERE Exactly? March 20, 2023

Is it possible that the women are not given equal opportunity to be seen on national television because they are, well, just women athletes? Good Gravy – could that be? Could something as blatant as public media snubbing of hundreds of college athletes be allowed to happen? And no one is commenting on it? Not even Scott Simon?
