I have always been fueled by stories. The first story that fed me was The Wizard of Oz.  CBS would air it once a year and, from one year old, I would watch.  The concept of fiction meant nothing to me.  Dorothy and her friends and the Wicked Witch with her winged monkey were as real […]

I was listening to a podcast this morning that suggested that we should bring back Happy Hour. Well, Happy Hour was the suggestion, but the bigger idea was to bring back some ritual that marked the time. Daily morning prayer could work just as well. But, well, Happy Hour! This evening, once the kids were […]

Once again, Doc Martin interrupted my posting last night. Well, sort of. I think Pat wanted to get me away from the news (which I wasn’t watching–but my father called to talk about it) and turned it on and I wasn’t about to let him stream cheat on me. I will admit that I have […]

Do you want to know how to make someone laugh? Ask them if they have any fun plans for the weekend. Once again, another quiet weekend. The closest thing to excitement was Pat taking the big broom and “sweeping” paths though the kids’ rooms and making them clean up what was swept out. Honestly, I […]

As predicted, Monday was not only uneventful but we also ended it watching Doc Martin. So, even if I had had anything interesting to post, I wouldn’t have had the chance to post it.
