  • Let The Spinning Wheel Spin

      She who must be Obeyed (SWMBO) recently celebrated her 37th wedding anniversary on the twoth of March (we have the 4th, 5th, 6th etc so why isn’t March 2 the twoth of March?). SWMBO attended “Simply Myrna” where she was introduced to a youthful, talented throwback named Bunny...

  • The irony of Jamaica
