The week gone by — March 28

We’re all having our fun and making our little jokes about the ship stuck in the Suez Canal, but … stuff’s about to get real, folks.

You see, it could be postponing papasan plans.

Suzi has decided she’d like something a little more comfortable than the futon in our sports room for our Thursday night travel adventures, so she ordered a papasan chair several weeks ago.

I’m not sure how well this plan is going to work when our cat Sasha notices it — given that she has been allowed to take over our entire living room couch — but that’s the plan.

Originally, the chair was schedule to show up early next month, but Suzi got an email the other day saying that now it won’t arrive until June. So now she’s worried the papasan is either on that boat or one of the others being delayed in the canal or rerouted around the southern coast of Africa.

Is that why the chair’s arrival has been delayed two months? I haven’t the foggiest idea, but let’s just say Suzi’s rooting for the predication the boat will be freed sooner rather than later. (I’m guessing the people looking for these products feel the same way.)

Or if that doesn’t work, here’s an idea … I guess.


With the entire Santa Monica Beach below me, why was I watching the cars in the parking lot?

I found relaxation in a very strange place.


”Remember the first week or 10 days of last March?

I know it feels like a century or two, but it was only a little more than a year ago that most of us were still enjoying the Before Times, unaware that we were just days away from the full force of a pandemic that would infect and kill millions, cripple countless businesses and turn people’s lives upside down … for more than a year.

But what if we had known?

What would we have done? What would we have not done?”

Watch this space … Wednesday, March 31, 8 p.m. Eastern.


A year into the pandemic, Alexia and her family are making progress and focusing on the good things.

I don’t know what I’d do without meat, but if you’re interested going vegetarian, here’s Jamie’s experience.

Giggles got to see her father for the first time in months.

Erin wrote a thank you note to her body.

Vee was … not impressed … with someone she saw on TV.

According to Austin, Aaron is no fan of the big basketball tournaments going on right now.

More for me! (She’s fine with that, by the way.)

It’s like there’s an entire decade I can’t process when I’m doing the math.

Other than “don’t”? (It didn’t go well for me, but maybe it’ll work out for her.)

  1. I found the thing about the Suez Canal quite amusing, not the fact that it’s stuck but all the memes that came out of it. I love that people can make anything amusing. Also, I’m South African so we’ll be seeing a lot of ships coming by. Hopefully some people will stop and say hello 🙂

    And thanks for the mention!
