Dan: What He is Thinking About Today. – KGUA #64

For the October 11, 2021 KGUA radio Morning Writer’s Hour hosted by Mark Gross and Peggy Berryhill in Gualala, California, we are asked to freewrite to this prompt: What are You Thinking About Today? What’s On Your Mind?

First is how sore my left arm feels after getting my Pfizer booster shot yesterday afternoon.  The pain woke me up in the middle of the night. But as we all know, no pain, no gain.

Second, how energizing it is to consolidate and jettison. This morning Hannah and I got up a little after 5 AM fired up to clear off the shelves in our upstairs bedroom for Hannah’s books and to clean out le junque under our ping pong table. 

You see, we have lived in the same house for the past 39 years.  We still have our children’s middle and high school yearbooks, their photo albums, a bread machine, classic indestructible books for toddlers, CDs, and tables that we picked up on the roadside.   All things others could be using.  This morning we set out an end table by the side of our country road with a “Free” sign.  It was gone by noon.

Third, on a subject that might be just a bit too much information for some, I am beginning to train my bladder.  Yes, the B word.  It seems it’s possible to teach an old bladder new tricks.  Kegels for men are a thing.  My other excellent strategies are for those who really give a sh*t.  Contact me.  I’m your B man.

Fourth is the importance to have fun each day, but also to have activities that are “so fun.”  A recent ”so fun” time was a chili dinner with our friends, Scott and Tree, at their place before they began their trek home to California. 

It’s been another good day.

  1. I knew I really liked you guys. You make sure to have fun (doing things that are so fun) every day.

    Glad to hear you can train your B, never knew that for men. Going to share w/my Dad. (He’s 83, not sure he knows this!).

    Have a fun Monday, and thank you for sharing!

    • Interesting, thanks! I brought Kate apple picking with my friend yesterday. She even got to ride the tractor to through the apple orchards. Love when dogs are allowed at some of these places 🙂 It’s been a challenging 6 weeks w/her and my Mom, but yesterday was “so fun!” So today my parents have homemade banana/apple bread ❤
      Hi to Hannah too!

  2. One of my favorite pastimes when I de-clutter my house is to watch people stop to inspect the stuff on the curb. Inside the house I am cheering 📣 them on to take it, take it, take it, and they do!!!! 😁
