Enter the puppy

Kuiper joined our family today. He flew in from Oklahoma, and he’s taking over, as one would expect from a puppy. Adorable doesn’t begin to cover it, and Lyra is handling her jealous big sister thing reasonably well.  She’ll get the hang of it eventually, I think. Watching them, however, I see so much of […]

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 […]
