From the Mouths of Babes

June 30, 2014

Tweet Comedy Central has nothing on the cast of nine-year old boys I get to hang out with.  Deal had friends over to celebrate his birthday recently. We didn’t do much in terms of providing entertainment. No magician or mad scientist as we have done in the past. This year the boys ran amok with [...]

There once was a woman.

June 26, 2014

Tweet There once a woman who was on time, often even early, for every engagement. She had her act together and color coded her calendar. Her closet was tidy, always organized by season and color (and no wire hangers). Her bills were paid on time, and there were no piles of stray paper or envelopes [...]

Uncommon Goods is Great

Tweet I live in the South, where monogramming is a way of life like sweet tea and buttermilk biscuits. Besides the ubiquitous monogrammed car, I’ve seen all sorts of things emblazoned with curlycue initials and block name imprints – hand soap, dish towels, camp chairs, Easter baskets, hair bands, flip flops, trays, soap dispensers, swimsuits, [...]

Orange You Glad It’s Summer – 5:00 Fridays

June 20, 2014

Tweet   When Deal and Mac Daddy were away camping one weekend Bird and I wiled away some time at the flea market. It’s a favorite family outing where we stumble upon treasure and engage in some fierce people watching. The adage “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” manifests before our very eyes at [...]

Cool Dad – 5:00 Fridays TM

June 13, 2014

Tweet   It’s Father’s Day weekend. I thought I’d clue you in just in case all the ads for ties, belts, power tools, and lawn mowers weren’t enough. I don’t know anyone who wants a tie or anything with “World’s Best Dad” emblazoned on it. We don’t even have a yard so the lawn mower [...]

Summer. Time.

June 12, 2014

Tweet   I don’t generally like to be alone with my thoughts. I took Lark for a long walk. I don’t listen to music when I walk. It’s the one time of day I am unplugged and can breathe in my surroundings with all my senses. Well, I don’t use my sense of taste, ’cause [...]
