Well, I said I was going to do it and I did. I sat down at my computer yesterday and started working my way toward the end of my new book, Dead Romeos, and except for a few breaks to get up and move around a little bit, and go to the bathroom, I kept […]

Almost There

I never trust anything the weatherman tells me because long experience has shown that they can point to their colorful maps and forecast anything they want and make all kinds of predictions, but in reality all they can really do is tell you what happened yesterday. For example, for the last few days they have […]

I Kept My Head Down

“Keep your head down or you’ll get it blown off!” I can’t tell you how many times I heard drill sergeants and platoon leaders scream that at young soldiers when I was in Basic and Advanced Infantry Training. It’s a lesson that served me well and that I never forgot. It kind of goes along […]

Thank you to everybody who made blog comments or sent me emails about finally breaking down and ordering my new office chair. I am really looking forward to it coming in so I can start enjoying the benefits. As I said in yesterday’s blog, when I saw the specialist on Wednesday, she immediately suspected my […]

And not just beautiful, but also strong, caring, intelligent, talented in so many […]

As I wrote in yesterday’s blog, we had planned to stay home on Friday so I could get some writing done and Miss Terry could get back to her latest long-delayed weaving project. But then we ran out to do a couple of errands and the day got away from us. So we didn’t accomplish […]

She’s Doing Great

We spent several hours at the rehab facility with Beverly yesterday as they put her through her paces and showed us how much progress she has made since her major surgery last week, and explained what the follow-up plan is when she is released from the hospital next week. From everything I can see, she […]

With everything that has been going on in our lives lately there has not been a lot of time for writing or weaving, or much of anything else. But while Beverly has been in the hospital things are not quite as busy. We make the trip over to see her two or three times a […]

Most of us have experienced it a time or two in our lives, some of us more often than others. I call it the spidey sense. That feeling that something just isn’t right, though we can’t figure out what is wrong or why we are feeling that way. I’ve learned to be aware and heed […]
