I dropped by my brother’s place on my way home on Friday night. I found the path from the parking area to his place littered with spent shell casings, not a usual occurrence. I picked up about half a dozen of them. I was greeted by Rio, who was making dinner, and my brother, who […]

Back in Black

And it’s back…darkness, my old friend. Yesterday, I noticed that there were high beams conditions as I left for work at 6 am. Unfortunately for Me, it was also the foggiest it had been in some time, so using the high beams merely threw the glare back at me mockingly. Back to the anemic puddle […]

Hi! Here’s what’s been happening the past few days. Work has been getting in the way of writing, and I expect this to continue for about another month. I am still working six days a week, leaving only one day to get ready for the next six and to accomplish miscellaneous Cinderella chores around the […]

Dad’s Flowers Every year, we plant sweetpeas in honor of our father. They were his favorite flowers. We had a little bouquet of them at his memorial service, along with a photo of Dad and his beloved dog, Jesse.

Summer is not only high season for tourists, it’s also high season for friends to brave the drive, isolation and lack of cell phone service to visit us. So most summer get togethers have guest stars, and […]

Are there time-released bad omens? If so, I think that Steller’s Jay was one… It’s been another crazy week, and it’s far from over. It seems that no matter how hard I work, it’s not enough. I am fighting serious headwinds of feeling both overwhelmed and inadequate, which is a spectacularly unenjoyable combo platter, especially […]

Bad Omen

There hasn’t been much time for anything but work this week. I have been leaving the house at 6:00 am in a mostly vain attempt to get everything done in time, blasting down the Ridge with Weezer to wake me up. I was amused to pull up to the clinic one day as they were […]

Since you all enjoyed the peek at our local message board a few months ago, I thought you might like another one. As you can see, we’ve been keeping Hooterville weird, and that’s the way we like it. 1. Of bears and garbage: If you’re about 5 miles out X Rd & the bear hauled […]
