Away We Go!

It’s been a while since Mrs. Chatterbox and I packed our suitcases and hit the road. On previous trips we’ve explored Turkey, Scandinavia, India, Thailand and Cambodia. On the eighteenth of this month we’re heading for the part of the world once referred to as the Romantic Road. Read about it (here).

I’ve made some changes to Chubby Chatterbox you might not have noticed. The newsletter feature, which I never developed, has been eliminated and replaced by two new pages, one for Illustrations and the other for Fine Art Paintings.Check it out (here).

Saturday was my mother’s ninetieth birthday, and while she struggled to place a positive spin on the event, I was left feeling pensive. Mrs. Chatterbox and our son CJ joined me in attempting to create a festive occasion, but I’m not sure we succeeded. Read about it (here).

Pink House

 I was in a really rotten mood that day back in 1983. I was unemployed, tired of job hunting and feeling depressed. To improve my spirits I decided to do something I practically never did, hit the road with my art supplies. Read about it (here).

Prom Night

It’s that time of year again when Mrs. Chatterbox and I reflect on a rite of spring, the gathering of high school students in a ritual known as Senior Prom. Read about it (here).

The Smell of Cut Grass

After moving into a townhouse, I couldn't wait for the gardener to arrive so I could watch someone else mow my lawn. It wasn't as satisfying as I'd thought. Read about it (here).

Remembering Truckzilla

I thought Mrs. C. had lost her mind when she came home from work, excited at having won two tickets in an office pool for an event so outside my field of interest as to be laughable. “You won tickets to what?” I asked. Read about it (here).
