The wind howled through Thursday night into the wee hours of Friday morning. I mean, howled. Like a tormented wolf, it shook the window screens off the house and at one point I stared through the dark at the ceiling just waiting for our roof to peel off. The creaks and groans made Beatrice, Executive … Continue reading Day 3: Tele-working in a time of COVID-19 and teaching mom new tricks

Celebrate 100 Years Of An American Legend | Tattoo Legend Norman Sailor Jerry Collins.
Actually, quite a few good-sized reminders. Just when we began to envision the trees blooming with fall colors, feel a hint of crisp air at night, prepare for the chill of autumn evenings and mornings...Mother Nature decided to slap us with a little reminder. She rules this earth. She is the Mother. And don't forget … Continue reading A little reminder
Reggie Bush returned the Heisman Trophy he earned in 2005. Based on his questionable integrity during his USC career, the Heisman Trust was going to ask for it back, anyway. Really? If we are going to begin rescinding trophies over marred morality and integrity, they better start packing these babies up all over the country, … Continue reading Really?

The lone female in the house, she served on the committees for Roads and Highways, Education, and Welfare. But when the chairman of the tax committee blocked her from serving, stating "women don't … Continue reading Harriet’s Flowers
