With a recent string of hospital runs and minor difficulties, I was feeling pretty tired, overwhelmed and at the end of my strength. A knock at the door brought an unexpected gift of meals for our family from some very thoughtful friends. Can’t thank them enough, it helped more than they could...

While working at my job today, I served a lovely young man maybe in his thirties. He had a young boy with him, as I scanned his groceries I wasn’t sure if I heard correctly, hearing the words "Do you want to go and pay for that lady’s Shopping?" I noticed he handed the boy a $50 note and the young boy went over to the register with the note in his hand waiting...

We switched phone providers recently and we were given a new phone number. Only it wasn’t so new. Since the day we got it we have been getting three times as many robot calls here, all seeking to sell us something. It is quite annoying. Plus it seems like every time I dare buy something online my email inbox is suddenly flooded with ads trying to get me to buy more. In addition to this I have grown...

At 7-Eleven, I asked the cashier how much for 8 wings, she says 10.50, then I asked how much for 6 wings, she says 7.50. I said then I will take the 6 wings. She smiles at me and says, "I think I understand" then she charged me for 6 wings. And when I got home, I realized she gave me 8 wings. I almost teared...

Recently, my friend and his Mom were scammed by people who thought were going to help them to fix their gutters. Those people ended up destroying the whole roof. My friend put up a GoFundMe link on his Facebook to raise funds. He and his mom couldn’t afford to get their roof fixed as both are pensioners. I reached out to a roof restoration business near me as I am not familiar with...

A Blanket

By A Friend on May 16, 2024 / 1,519 views

I was nine years old, waiting for the school bus in Wisconsin winter. I had a thin coat, no hat or gloves. A woman driving past saw me and stopped, giving me a blanket from the back of her car. It was a long skinny one, so she wrapped it around my head and shoulders like a big scarf. I remember thanking her, but being confused. I told her I didn't know how I...

I turned my television on after breakfast this morning. The news was the usual every single horrible thing that is happening in the world. That wasn’t the worst of it, though. This being an election year the commercials were all the most venomous, hate-filled, political attack ads I had ever seen. It turned my stomach listening to them. And my heart felt weighed down with sadness. “Is this who we...

My daughter was planning to visit from Pittsburgh to California with my grandchild, and I wanted a backpack to carry him on the beautiful hikes we have here in Southern California. I posted on a neighborhood app asking to borrow one, promising to return it in the same condition. Almost immediately, a neighbor responded. She came over, handed me a backpack, and insisted it was a gift. I...

Neighbors asked to borrow my truck. Told them I could not trust my truck because the tires were bad.

Told me to just show up at this certain tire shop and they would put them on Get to tire shop and they put on brand new Goodyear tires. I asked what happened to the old tires I was...

"When you go out into the woods, and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. And some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. And you look at the tree and you allow it. You see why it is the way it is. You sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. And you don’t get all...

I posted something about our Italian style Sunday dinners on Facebook recently and got several requests for my Nana’s recipe for her spaghetti sauce. I gladly sent it out to them, but kind of felt bad about it. It wasn’t that I didn’t think my Nana would mind. She loved sharing her sauce with everyone. It was just that I didn’t think people would get it right. You see, I...

I was a teacher for 30 years. It was nearing the end of summer, and my car needed repair. $645. I told the garage that I could only do some of the repairs. I called and asked my daughter to come and drive me to the bank to transfer the funds. I went back to the mechanic's desk, asking the exact amount of the repairs they were doing. The guy at the desk told me the full...

I was having a pretty lousy day in New York City when I was visiting some friends. It was gloomy and cold, but also I was sad about something unrelated. I decided to go down to my favorite coffee shop in the lower Eastside. One of their specialties is the Olive oil cake loaf. I had never had one from them, so I decided that that would be the day I would. But when I got there, I ordered my latte and the loaf...

So, there was this one time in the 1990s. I was helping my brother move from a teaching job after college. This was in the middle of nowhere in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. He was driving his little pickup truck pulling a trailer and I was driving my crappy little Ford station wagon, packed to the gills with his stuff. It was a Sunday. I'm driving along and my car just dies. No warning,...

By Joseph J. Mazzella on May 01, 2024 / 2,395 views

It was many years ago. I was still a young man with nothing better to do than drive around with his friends on a Saturday exploring old back roads here in the mountains of my home. We found an old, winding gravel one that curved up the side of a mountain. When we reached the top, however, there was nothing there but an old, abandoned graveyard. We got out to look at it. The last person buried there...
