Day 3509: Throwaways

When I was walking around my neighborhood on trash and recycling Tuesday, I noticed several throwaways:

I took that throwaway shot of my favorite building in the neighborhood because demolition trucks were parked outside, and I’m afraid it’s going to become a throwaway.

Last night, I asked this question on Twitter:


Personally, I would never throw away

  • books,
  • musical instruments,
  • confidential documents (without shredding them first),
  • interesting architecture,
  • my values,
  • people, and
  • cats.

Because I’m trying to throw away a few pounds, I saved part of that latest culinary masterpiece by Michael for today’s lunch.

Here’s a throwaway definition,

… a few more throwaway lines,

… and the song “Throwaway” by SG Lewis and Clairo:


I look forward to your comments on this throwaway post.

Thanks to all who choose to throw away some of their valuable time on this blog, including YOU!

Day 3505: Who are you really?

I’m someone who really asks a lot of questions, but I don’t think I’ve ever asked, “Who are you really?”

Who asked that question is Michael A. Singer, who I really like.

Who am I really is someone who probably DOES ask the question “Who are you really?” but not in those exact words. I think that’s what I was asking last night on Twitter:

Who are you really? Are you someone who wants to see my other images for today?

Who is the Daily Bitch really?

Heres what I find on YouTube when I search for “who are you really?”

I also find this:

Who are you really? Are you someone who’s going to leave a comment about this “who are you really?” post?

Who am I really? I’m someone who is really grateful I get to blog everyday for me and for YOU.

Day 3481: Iconic Duos

Last night, because I knew I was going to pose a question about iconic duos on Twitter, I asked my better half Michael to send me this photo of our iconic duo:


Here’s the question about iconic duos I asked on Twitter.

Iconic answers to that Twitter question have included John Lennon & Paul McCartney, George Burns & Gracie Allen, Mel Brooks & Carl Reiner, Michelle & Barack Obama, Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers, Batman & Robin, and Peanut Butter & Jelly.

I’m realizing that my answer to a different question on Twitter is all about another iconic duo.

Here’s “Daulton Lee” by the iconic duo Pat Metheny and the late Lyle Mays, from the movie The Falcon and the Snowman.


Do you see any iconic duos in my other images for today?


Ice cream figures in several iconic duos, doesn’t it?

Here’s what I find on YouTube when I search for “iconic duos.”


Finally, here’s another iconic duo: Me & Gratitude for YOU!

Day 3327: Trying

During these trying times, I’m trying to

  • be a good mother,
  • help people cope with anxiety and depression,
  • remain positive,
  • stay safe,
  • stay healthy,
  • overcome my resistance to doing tasks I want to avoid (like our taxes),
  • understand people’s irrational behaviors,
  • be kind,
  • watch the Olympics,
  • read,
  • balance my needs with other people’s needs,
  • set and maintain healthy boundaries,
  • create another great presentation about my groups,
  • be an ally for social justice,
  • reduce my carbon footprint,,
  • figure out how to celebrate National Toothache Day, and
  • identify a common theme for today’s images.

We’re also trying to maintain a good environment for our gregarious cat Joan and our shy cat Harley.

Here’s “Trying” by The Staves.

What are you trying during these trying times?

As always, I’m trying to express how grateful I am to all who help me create these daily blogs, including YOU.

Day 3319: The day before

On the day before my 69th birthday, I’m sharing some images from the day before this one.

Soon it will be the night before my birthday, so here’s “The Night Before” by the Beatles.

I’m grateful I’ve reached the day before yet another birthday and I’m grateful for you!
