Eat It Or Wear It


What’s fun on a Tuesday night?  Going to Sonic for a hot fudge sundae.  Even better?  When your kid accidently dumps said hot fudge sundae in his lap, freaks out, and somehow gets it all over the backseat. Lucky for this kid, his daddy has a heart of gold and went back to Sonic and […]



E.B. has a cough and his voice became really hoarse on Christmas Day.  I started feeling yucky Friday after a trip to the store.  I’ve lived in Mississippi long enough to know that my self-diagnosis of The Delta Crud was happening, so yesterday E.B. and I headed off to the doctor.  We had a 2 […]

The Day After Christmas

Batter Up!

Pettin’ Kitties


My parents have a whole family (plus more) of stray cats who suddenly started taking up residence in their neighborhood a couple of years ago.  There are about five of them that show up at their house morning, noon, and night for a meal.  I suppose it doesn’t help that we feed them.  In any […]
