Wandering & Pondering The Professional

Why is it that when we think of a professional we automatically assume that the one we are thinking of is in the medical, accounting or lawyering field? To me that is a pretty bad mind set. The other night we were eating at a nice restaurant and the waitress served us in a manner […]

Wandering & Pondering Valerie at 50!

Ran into Valerie after all these years, quite an experience since she has some life. First of all she looks as alive as she was in her 30s. She is also still the far right symbol of conservatism where she is against any abortion, gay rights and whatever else you can come up with. She […]

Wandering & Pondering Feeling Well

Wandering & Pondering Early Riser

They had been good friends for over a year. Could talk about everything without upsetting one another. All this time they actually avoided anything in the physical or bed-bit.

Wandering & Pondering-The Heart

Jerry was a good heart surgeon. As a result he was every mother’s dream for her daughter. But there was a problem. As a lover he was pretty bad. Trouble was he knew it, which didn’t help his self esteem. It didn’t matter to him when doing the act, he was satisfied but it was […]

Wandering & Pondering-Faithful

John wonders why anyone should be unfaithful.

Wandering & Pondering Meeting again

They ran right into each other in the office building, they stared. It had been just over 20 years since they last spoke. They had been so involved with each other but the parents, the so-called-friends had each gotten involved in advising them that it just wouldn’t work. Dozens of reasons why they had listened […]

Wandering & Pondering Age 39

It was her 39th birthday. “I’m going to enjoy this birthday because it’s going to be awhile before I admit to forty,” although she laughed and kidded about it, he was pretty sure she meant it. What was about a woman and the age of 40? Did 40 make her less attractive? Did it change […]

Dan Palmer

A friend I’ve known for awhile just became a grandfather. He’s been walking around with a big smile on his face and naturally I complimented him on reaching grand fatherhood.
