March (what was left of it)

The rest of March was busy. In addition to getting ready for the memorial in Reno, the new refrigerator was coming, I had a fair amount of design work, yard work and decluttering work.

Shouldering on. My shoulder seems to be getting better, slowly. I think it is back to where it was before I stumbled at the bottom of the stairs. And crushed part of my guitar.

I seem to be… Read more →

Widower’s Benefits

I still don’t call myself a “widower.” It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. If someone seems really interested I tell them my wife passed away. This post is about Social Security Survivors Benefits. A friend mentioned it to me and I thought I should look into it. (Standard disclaimer here: I’m not a professional accountant, advisor, lawyer doctor or social… Read more →
