Will The Real Real Zucchini Bread Please Stand Up?

| July 15, 2009

>edfa year when the little kids visited during the summer, we ate zucchini bread for every snack, so it was understandable that they were disappointed when I didn’t offer them any this year. We got by with Jello and bananas for a few days, but it’s not the same. My problem, no zucchini yet. But, […]

My Busy Week

| July 11, 2009

This is my busy week, I have GS3 and both our granddaughters here for the week. Our granddaughters are headed for Summer Safari at the Detroit Zoo. GS3 has a camp in a few weeks, but he is along for the ride this week. D2 and D1 are headed to the ALA conference in Chicago. […]

United Breaks Guitars

| July 9, 2009

OK, I know you already saw the video. In case you live under a rock, you can view it on YouTube. The video describes Dave Carroll’s experience with United Airlines, which smashed the end of his guitar, and provided sub-par customer service at the time of their error, and for months after. I wrote have […]

We arrived home yesterday afternoon, a little tired, but glad we made the trip. We were out in North Carolina, the first time we actually stayed there instead of just driving through. Emptying the car was easy, but this week will be busy. I have some details to wrap up for our family reunion, which […]

Happy Birthday to Carrie

| July 3, 2009

Happy birthday to D1 today, July 3. I guess I’ll skip her age, you all know anyway. We had been married almost a year when she was born. Here she is at about three. Not sure if this was before or after her birthday in 1973. Like father, like daughter. They are both engineers now, […]

Hi from Morganton, North Carolina

| July 2, 2009

We had a wonderful day yesterday at the Red, White and Bluegrass Festival here in Morganton. It was a big crowd for a Wednesday, and a super line-up. I especially enjoyed seeing Heather Berry, Junior Sisk, and the SteelDrivers; none of whom will be appearing at Michigan festivals we will attend this summer. Heather Berry […]

New Olympic Event

| June 24, 2009

D1 calls this synchronized sitting, what do you think? I’ll give them a 9.99. After they noticed me taking the photo, they turned to look at me. Well, one is looking up more than the other. It was soon time for dinner, guess what?: There you have it, the very different cats, doing the same […]

Just a Little Reminder

| June 23, 2009

It looks like school is out nearly everywhere. There are more kids around, playing, running, and acting like kids. Unfortunately, even the best of us adults are distracted sometimes. Mitchell Butler died last fall, and I wrote about it here. Papa brought a few of these home last week, and I thought it was work […]

Go Wings!

| June 12, 2009

OK, I said it. Papa and I have been huge hockey fans for years, since he attended this college. Back in those days, the school had a very successful hockey team. We spend some time in the old Puller Arena, screaming our way through the games. Hockey was different then, there were no helmets and […]

The Visitor

| June 11, 2009

I headed out to hoe the garden the other day, and found a little visitor. She was near the hose reel, getting a little water. I walked all over the yard, and she ambled just ahead of me. She was not to concerned, after all when she stopped, I stopped. And I couldn’t see her, […]
