Back in the swing

We dropped my parents off (and waited for their very late train with them) this morning, and they rolled out of town, concluding a lovely couple of weeks of visit. Mom and I worked on her Pocket Grandmother project, and I wanted to get much more done on it than I did while she was […]

Laugh until it hurts

A bunch of us went to see Alton Brown at Centennial Hall.  I haven’t laughed like that in a while… since Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood were in town, perhaps.  Live funny, so fun.  Alton was utterly delightful, and I just kept wanting him to do a show with Adam and Jamie, combining their Behind […]

Planes, trains, and automobiles

So there was the crazy speculation from yesterday that turned into more rational possibilities, though still with pins and needles waiting.  Planes.  Also, Squirrel Brain just spinning out trying to imagine every possible future and make the one it wants most happen. Then my parents got to town for a visit. The timing’s a teeny […]
