Happy Father's Day

To all you Dads around here.

This is the zealous scrub jay dad who has been waking me up at 5am for weeks as he checks to make sure the cats are inside while his babies hop around on the fence…

This Evening's Sunset Drive

Posted on May 22, 2018 at 10:30pm 10 Comments

  People sometimes say there's not a whole lot to do around here, and sometimes I'd say that's true.....

  But the sunset drives sure are beautiful.

 Son's old 1988 stick-shift red e30 BMW is pretty fun, too.…


Supposedly Jane Goodall

“When the aging gorilla is confronted with the much more virile, new alpha-male, he shows submissiveness by grooming the alpha-male, but the gesture is actually a vain attempt by the old gorilla to humiliate his much younger rival.”…


My Ancient High on Acid Adventure ~ SBA/RR Challenge: Music

Posted on April 14, 2018 at 11:30pm 26 Comments

The bar had gotten crowded and close, was getting downright pungent, when the lights dimmed, the headliner band announced. The LSD our group had taken on the walk over to the club was just kicking in - for me, a highly unusual state of events. When acid was offered earlier that evening I’d thought back to the only other time I’d tried it, a little bit shared a with a co-worker years before; the only…

When Youngest Was Homeschooled

Posted on February 27, 2018 at 10:19am 12 Comments

Since there was recent talk of homeschooling in the comment thread of Rodney's recent post, I thought I'd re-post the experience our family had when Youngest was homeschooled. Not sure we had a common experience, not sure there is a common experience with homeschooling, it's so individual, but it's the…


To Send Letters of Support to the Parkland Kids....

Posted on February 19, 2018 at 11:25am 13 Comments

Someone tweeted this - thought worth sharing for those who want to reach out to these kids:

"I was contacted on Facebook by a teacher from Stoneman Douglas High in Florida. She would love it if her students had letters of support when they return. Please send to:



Book Clubs and Book Lists

Posted on January 26, 2018 at 10:30am 35 Comments

There’s a couple of book clubs I know of presenting books to read for January. One of the book clubs is hosted by our local independent bookseller, the other has spread widely online by a tweet from Duncan Jones, David Bowie’s son.

The Duncan Jones book offering is an older book, from the mid-80s, and sounds rather intense (which got my curiosity going). The book is…

Anna: Your acid story was fantastic. It was as if I was experiencing it myself. Though the only time I ever did acid, or what was sold to us as acid, made the back of my brain feel it was dripping blood.

I saw that too.  I'm so sorry.

Love your stories! The faded photograph one in particular. I have some of those also.  The renters, the clear way you describe them? They haunted my thoughts for weeks after reading yours.  Yet, comforting somehow.  ty!
