You Just Can’t Make This Stuff Up…

Once Upon A Time, There were Two Boys - www.turnstylevogue.com

This post is for all of you who are raising boys. First, take a look at this…   That was Joey and his buddy racing against each other at a baseball game the other night. And this is what immediately followed as a result of that race…   In reference to Dr. Seuss... Thing One: A separated … [Read more...]

The Outback

Last weekend, we traveled the road that leads to nowhere to get two weeks from everywhere (as they say.)  We did our annual gathering in the Oregon Outback, on the other side of the mountains.  I was planning on sharing it all earlier this week but I was still on vacation so to speak. The “family camping compound” … [Read more...]

Happy Friday! With all of the snow that has been hitting many parts of the country I’m sure the ol’ “I had to walk three miles uphill in the snow to get to school” story has been shared more than once.  Sharing childhood tales, whether faux or faux-real, with our kids is human nature for a parent.  Agree?  Well, not … [Read more...]

Happy Friday! Are you happy? I am! Why? Because my little buddy is okay… Last weekend, he had immediate onset of symptoms that imitated a stroke.   (sorry for bad quality picture – it was enlarged from a cell phone pic) His head was tilting to the far right – even more than the usual “beagle tilt”  and he … [Read more...]

TGIF! I was wondering what I was going to talk about today since my efforts for a cool post fell through.  And you know, I thought I’d talk about nothing. Seinfeld did it. Why can’t I ? Yesterday, I was heading to the store to work on my paint section and got a phone call that detoured me to the emergency room. … [Read more...]
