Butt, Butt, BUT Yet

Annie Stein

Butts. We have to discuss. Specifically… butt shorts. Ok my friendly readers who are, at this moment, saying, who the hell reading this is wearing butt shorts ?  I know, none of you. I hope; but our teenage girls are and it is to be discussed. No I’ve not turned into “HER” the little old lady on everyone’s block who wagged her finger and shook her head every time one of us paraded by […]

You Are What you Believe

“Some day you’ll look back at this picture and think how young you looked then.  My husband said this the other day as he was trying to snap a picture of me with his phone and I, yelling, “No, I look so old” was hiding my face behind a hat. A few years ago, a good friend brought over a picture of me she’d found while cleaning out an old […]

Brooklyn State of Mind

Brooklyn Heights Townhouse

Brooklyn Heights Well it’s true.  Having just returned I’m here to testify, Brooklyn is the place to live. Forget Manhattan.  Wow way cool. I kept walking around saying stupid things like this neighborhood looks like Georgetown, much to my daughter’s not dismay but slight irritation with my proclivity for saying places look like other places I really haven’t been to but just imagine look like. I have been to Georgetown, […]

Mother’s Day …In Africa and at Home

Annie Stein

There is a funny story I’m dying to share but sadly not today. The news from Africa this week has knocked all of the funny out of me. The first thought I had sitting down to write this morning was ENOUGH…there’s been enough written about this already this week by those far more knowledgeable than me.  Then again, new knowledge is not what I have to offer.  My second thought and […]

This’s Been Some Week

Annie Stein

Out of the gate this week went from hi to lo then back up to ultimately very high again, and is now over. Phew! Not being one to think in terms of mercury being in retrograde, or in the bathroom, as the case may be, I just gotta say, this has been some week. So much so that I’m saving a whole other rant for next week and telling the true stories, the real […]

The Way We Roll

family photo

If anyone thought I would go through my, our, my husband and my, 20th anniversary week and not touch it at all, well that’s only because those people don’t know how predicable I really am. Why keep private what I can gnaw on in public. So first off, does anyone besides me hear Billy Crystal  as the  nasally old Jewish Wizard in The Princess Bride, saying “Maaawriage” practically every time […]

Aunts and Uncles Day

Auntie Coise after a 12 hr flight!

As Mother’s Day, then Father’s Day , will soon be upon us, I’ve been thinking it’s really a shame no one has come up with Aunt’s and Uncle’s Day. Seriously, am sure someone at Hallmark could’ve come up with some groovy ( yes, I still drag that out from time to time)cards in praise of aunties and uncles.So surprising that money making category hasn’t been tapped. Waiting for me I guess!  Walking […]

Let’s Shop and talk Moobs!

gapphoto

I’ve decided my blog entries gotta lighten up! In thinking about my last 2, it occurred to me that they could be, hmmm… too heavy…too, I don’t want to say preachy…but… You can take the girl outta church but sometimes ya can’t take the church outta the girl. OK OK, am here to talk shop. As in shopping. Also, I feel it’s a good time to touch on “Moobs”. Men’s […]
