The Twisted World of Fiber, Hooks, Needles, Wheels and Dating after Widowhood

This is my story, and I'm sticking to it. Warts and all. I wanted to call it 'Seriously? WTF?', but that doesn't quite explain it all. Or does it?

where to begin

Should I start at the beginning?  You know, the marriage, the darling kiddies, the houses, blah, blah blah?  No, that wouldn't be any fun.  I want to start with today.  On a dating site.  A free one.  Just remember people, you get what you pay for, and sometimes you get extra.  I was at work when I noticed I had a new email.  It was from a guy on the free site.  I checked his profile.  Innocent enough.  Not bad looking.  He wasn't Cougar hunting. (That's a story for another day).  So I answered him back. We emailed back and forth all afternoon.  He was smart, articulate, and above all, he could spell and type in complete sentences.  In all of his pictures, he was wearing one of those awful newsboy hats.  Possible red flag for being bald, but that's fine.  I asked him for a picture of his head without the hat.  Bad phrasing.  Should have left the word 'head' out of the sentence because...... yup, you guessed it.  He sent me not one, but two pictures of his weiner.  Granted, it was a fine weiner as they go, but not what I am looking for after 2 hours of emails. Sigh..............  This is how my dating goes.  At the age of 48, all that seems to be left are the weirdos, the pervs and the men who still live with Mother. 


  1. So glad you started a blog. I like how you write, just like you talk in conversation. Glad to know there another way to keep in touch. Though I don't blog that much, I tend to let it all hang out. Still not sure if that is a good thing or not, but for right now, it's what I do. I'm a write at heart and for me, it's good only if it gets out there... somewhat like a letter burning ritual..

  2. You are one of the funniest people I know -- so glad you're writing it all down! It makes me smile.
