Last week, when I was staying overnight with the boys, I decided to check out a new bar / restaurant in their town. Actually, the place has been open for almost a year, but Faith hasn’t been, and neither has a coworker of mine, who lives nearby. She, the coworker, encouraged me to be the... 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. And where my youngest lives, a great opportunity to visit one of my ducklings.

Geneviene who will soon release her 1920’s novel. If you’re not familiar with Teagan and her... Continue Reading →
If we were having a beer, you would be driving me crazy. “Wow, you guys are late today. I was about ready to give up.” “Sorry, Cheryl. I ran into my young friend at Target, but we needed more time to finish shopping.” “Correction. You needed more time. I was on my way out.” “That’s... Continue Reading →
Last year, I mentioned Pittsburgh’s Strip District in a guest post on a series called “Walking with Intention.” I republished that post here on my blog but I left the Strip District as a back story. I talked about the Strip again in a post after Faith and I visited Pittsburgh in 2014, but, since... Continue Reading →
Thursday doors with a difference. Actually, if you’re counting, there are two differences today. First, as the title implies, today’s doors are more of a random collection of doors that I liked, rather than doors with a history that I understand. I have some of those doors, too, but I don’t understand them yet. I... Continue Reading →
“Those are on sale today, three for $19.99!” I loved hearing that. I was prepared to pay almost $20 for the two boxes I had just placed on the counter. It was like getting a third box for free. Yes, I realize that I was probably experiencing a rotisserie-chicken(1) moment. The “use by” date on... Continue Reading →
