Manners, Manners Everywhere…

Hiatus took me by surprise. Just kind of stopped writing and a day turned to another and another. And then I was a little lost. COVID has taken its toll in the house of Duchess.

Smart Crush…

Does anyone else have a little crush on Dr. Fauci? Smart guys are my kryptonite. Deduce the origins of time or wax poetic on the combustion engine and the financial markets and I feel all tingly. In high school, my mother told her friend that my boyfriend was not very attractive. Ah, but he was… Continue reading Smart Crush…

Take Me Back to Table Dancing…

Still at home laughing at my own jokes and asking the cat what he'd like for lunch. I want to go back to work.

Polka Dots and Pleats…

With a New Year come predictions for what to wear from those who do not dress for real jobs, sitting, or living on the surface of the sun. We do find hope, however, in polka dots and pleats. But Lord save us if we are forced into utility jumpsuits or eighties denim skirts. Do what… Continue reading Polka Dots and Pleats…

Who Does The Heavy Lifting?…

Some days it's about the heavy lifting. Guys and chicks are not the same. Argue all you like but girls rarely belch the alphabet and guys generally don't wear thongs, regardless of worries over panty lines. Hauling the Christmas tree from the garage and a new license plate bring it home. I jostle and lift… Continue reading Who Does The Heavy Lifting?…

My Little Cub…

"What song do you want to dance to?" asks Oldest Chicken. He's referring to the mother-son tradition. His wedding is little more than a week away. We spend hours on the hunt. Feeling quite Goldilocks-ish. This one is too hard. This one is too soft. Seems finding the one that's "just right" should strike me… Continue reading My Little Cub…
