Well, I promised pics of the desolate backyard and delivered Arpege (remember those commercials?)  There are, of course, excuses.  Yesterday was the day all 4 doggies went to the beauty parlor.  They go monthly right now due to the mud in the yard, and I get about 4 hours off those days…it’s ordinarily quite peaceful on […]

We’re a few days post Thanksgiving and this year was special indeed.  Instead of the usual looking toward Christmas, pining over kitchen “emergencies” with the meal, we were just truly grateful to have been given yet another year with Mike.   It’s also the last time Cam might be able to have Thanksgiving with us for […]

Although the events preceding Feb 18 this year are pretty much a blur, superseded by the horror in our lives, I do remember the shooting in Arizona.  I remember wondering what the world was coming to…wondering how we had become a world of people, however damaged any individual might be, that any number of us valued […]
