In other words, the Cherished Blogfest deadline has been extended. I promised that I would take the day off, and I will, but I have to fix a mistake. As you know, the Cherished Blogfest happened this weekend. One of my jobs was to send an email to the people who participated last year. I... Continue Reading →
John made this post really easy for those of us who agreed to help him launch his new book, but I can’t resist adding a personal introduction. I read “My Grl” “His Revenge” and “Our Justice” and I enjoyed all three. When John said his next book was going to be different, I got nervous.... Continue Reading →
I though you guys would like to know what Cheryl was doing while we struggled with her replacement. Don’t try to do the geography, it only works in my head.
I’m going to try and turn off comments over here.
In~vol~untary evacuation can lead to marvelous e~vol~utionary processes. For instance, last week we were forced to cancel our dream vacation (again) to Costa Rica, land of volcanoes and Pura Vida. Since we don’t have relatives living in brick homes elsewhere in Florida, we looked outside of the vacation peninsula for refuge. Much of my family lives in Louisiana, already filled with evacuees from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey as the state itself is just now recouperating from the mind numbing flooding they experienced last Summer. We have children up in Nebraska, but since flying was already iffy at best, we decided to head to Atlanta where there was ONE hotel that we found good reservations.

Please forgive the Friday intrusion, but I can't resist a chance to bring back a few photos from the Duquesne Incline. I don't participate in Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge very often, but I follow a lot of people who do. The challenges are a great source of interesting photos. Anyway, I'm going to make this...

Not me, the Stanley Cup. I wasn't sure what to do about today's post. I knew that if the Penguins won, I would want to say something about that. If they lost, and I had to go into the special kind of cardiac arrest that is being a Pittsburgh sports fan, for three more days,... Continue Reading →
This is one of those weeks when I have a nice crop of doors, but I don’t have a story to tell. Well, I do, but I told it for National Train Day. You may have noticed that I didn’t include many pictures of trolley doors last month. I was planning to feature them in... Continue Reading →

If we were having a beer, you would seem concerned about my health. “So, how did your MRI go?” “How did you know I was having an MRI?” “I saw your comment on Greg’s site, you know, Almost Iowa.” “I didn’t know you followed Greg.” “I have to read something good.” “Thanks. And, the MRI... Continue Reading →
