Wordless Wednesdays: Big man, little man

Ok.  It’s not the world’s best photo, I know.  It was taken through a dirty window and bug screen, on a phone, and M and G were already quite far away when I got the shot so I had to blow it up.  But crappy photo quality or no, this picture of my two men […]

Wordless Wednesday: Thank You Instagram

Actually, I need to thank our Nanny, K.  She took this picture, and then had the presence of mind to Instagram it into amazingness.  And hey, a little shout out to Whatever Powers That Be that I am blessed with G!

Red Writing Hood: Right on the Edge

***A continuation of the last story with Tom and Shelley here*** “Oh Tom, it’s not you, really.”  Shelley said. Then she heaved a sigh.  An ominous, brace-yourself-buddy-for-what-I’m-going-to-lay-down kind of sigh.  A sigh indicating a wish that this beach had a convenient swim-up bar at which to purchase some Dutch Courage. “I don’t even know how […]

100 Word Songs: Breaking the Girl

Tears from him. In that hotel room, in the dark. Unmanning me. “I can’t… just can’t!” His voice pleaded, pulling the sheets up, aborting the moment. Me, Munsch’s Scream, silent, gaping.  Not breathing. Pulse frenetic. I couldn’t hear.  Something about another girl, no — a woman. Another woman.  He loved us both. She in Ohio, […]

Did I mention Stove Top?

A couple of posts back I wrote about M and I being those kind of parents.  In hindsight, I feel that I may have given the incorrect impression about us – at least about our eating habits.  (Or more accurately my eating habits, I won’t presume to speak for M.) It’s very true that we […]

That’s right… we’re THOSE parents.

While at a birthday party this weekend for a frouple’s two-year-old, I realized that we’ve become those parents. Which are those parents you may ask? (Even if you didn’t, I’m going to pretend that you did, because otherwise there’s no point to this post. Blogging is so convenient when one can speak for one’s own […]

Celebrating Life

I’ve been away for a while recovering from shoulder surgery, as you know.  It went really well, and I am a stellar recuperator (so far), so great news on that front. While I was out, two milestones were reached which need to be acknowledged and celebrated. First, my Nana, my grandmother on my father’s side, […]
