March Break is finally over, kids! September 8th was considered a great day for students and a sad day for squirrels. For many students, this marked the official end of a six-month March Break. And while most of those kids might normally dread the end of summer, I got the feeling that many were itching… Continue reading Monthly Musings

My brother-in-law’s Vegas wedding was cancelled this summer due to COVID, and I was left yearning for adventure and a place to scratch that spa itch.

Think about that feeling you get when you lie down… Continue reading My Trip to Vegas was Cancelled, So I Booked a Colonoscopy
So much and nothing happens constantly these days, so here are some meaningful and mundane observations from my own Quarantine Headquarters, shared with two teenage sons.

Both my teens are focused on high school math,… Continue reading Six Feet from Sanity–Living with Teens in a Pandemic
From the Covid Diaries You: So, What’s new with you? Me: Hmm. Oh! I bought toilet paper today! You: Wow! That’s so awesome! Good for you! Me: Yeah, it’s a good day.

He signals, turns, and continues onto an open, two-lane, country road. I am relaxed. He is in control. It’s a pastoral setting, although the… Continue reading Driving 101

We're Back...Again After another hiatus, I'm back and ready to jump back into the blog; my sub-conscious actually typed "fog" instead of "blog" which is often a more appropriate landing spot, jumping into the fog. Now that's corrected, let's see what's going on...oh, I published my book, There's No Place Like Home! It snuck up… Continue reading There’s No Place Like Home
After a brief hiatus, due to Life-us-Interruptus, I am back at the blog. So much has happened since my last post, but rather than play catch up, I think I’ll just start from…how about right now (with a few references to the past 10 months)? Seems like as good a place as any. You know… Continue reading We’re back!
