In last Wednesday’s Hump Day Zentangle challenge, I was feeling all light-hearted about our upcoming flight to Athens to begin our five week around the world trip. Our plan was to fly from Athens to Chania on the Greek island of Crete. We did end up on Crete, but two days later than planned because […]

Mr. Excitement was invited to speak at an international medical research conference on the Greek island of Crete — something about tumor micro environments. Needless to say, it didn’t take much convincing for me to sign on as a trailing spouse. A few weeks later, the Australian government extended an invitation for him to visit […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge Clouds

A frequent theme on Boomeresque is “Time Flies”. Well, this week we’re flying for real, leaving on the first of 11 jet planes. When I married Mr./Dr. Excitement, I didn’t realize his career would result in many travel opportunities. I thought I was marrying a physician. Indeed, there were many years of 3:00 a.m. calls. […]

Most Americans (United Statesers) in my demographic remember where we were when three major events in the life of our country happened: President Kennedy was assassinated; Neil Armstrong walked on the moon; and, on 9/11. (I realize most of the rest of the world thinks of it as 11/9). Where Were You on 9/11/2001? I […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge #12

This is my last Hump Day Zentangle post from our summer abode “down the shore” in Brigantine, New Jersey. (Note to Miscreants: Other people will be here so don’t get any ideas!)

Labor Day and Steampunk- A Smidgen of History I guess a history major can graduate from college, but she’ll still always be searching for historical underpinnings. So, please excuse me while I learn something about Labor Day “out loud”. In the United States and in Canada, we celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday in […]

Blackboard specials at the Pirates Den, Brigantine, NJ

In September of 2006, when we made our first ever visit to Brigantine, New Jersey on a barrier island just north of Atlantic City, a local resident recommended we eat at the Pirates Den restaurant.

Stuff Happens It’s still Wednesday (Hump Day) in my neck of the global woods, but I apologize for the fact that this week’s challenge will be published later than intended. I wish I could be as focused as Mr. Excitement and finish projects before they’re actually due, but after 37 years of being married to […]

Hump Day Zentangle Challenge #9

There are certain things that seem to be hard-wired in human beings. Every culture has a myth of creation. We want to know where we come from, how we got here. And, every culture has music. Often, we combine the two. Not surprisingly, religiously inspired music is some of the most moving. Our search for […]

Today is the first Wednesday in August. August!?! Seriously? July, we hardly knew ya’ and here we are 7 days into August. They say the passage of time seems to speed up as we age because each passing day (and hour) is a smaller percentage of our lives. As someone who is no longer asked […]
