Stash Diving – Why Does That Sound So Dirty?

Must be my evil mind – although I don’t know what I’m being evil about, LOL!  I took the opportunity this morning to frog a project I just knew I wasn’t going to finish – and another pair  of socks may actually happen someday – now that I’m no longer an anti-socker, thanks to the…

Goodies:)

I’m typing this at my desk, procrastinating just a little before typing up a couple of pleadings that I’ll be filing when I go back for the afternoon docket (I had a drug court meeting and then only one hearing on the a.m. docket, so what the heck, I went home to get organized –…

Back to Work!

Well, after that long weekend and an amazing time of inaugural bliss, it was time to get my you-know-what back to work.  The last week or so has been spent in a whirlwind of court, visits, court, meetings, court, visits, and when lucky, extracurriculars:) Of course, I couldn’t come back from a week’s hiatus without…

Thank you, Jacob Weisberg

Jacob Weisberg of Slate, the online news and commentary magazine, in an article titled, “W’s Greatest Hits: the top 25 Bushisms of all Times,”  collected 25 of his favorite “W” malapropisms – dubbed “Bushisms.”  His article was respectful and affectionate and I reprint the quotes from our former Prez here (and thanks to Barry E…

And The Crowd Went Wild!!!

Ok, dear readers, can you tell I’m just a LEEETLE bit excited about today’s festivities?  Well, multiply that by about 200 plus thousand and you’ve got a happy dance going on, people:) Our TV has been on all day, scene from scene from the Inauguration playing.  Despite everything we’ve been through as a country, we…

Rev. Lowery’s Benediction (love the end!)

God of our weary years, God of our silent tears, thou who has brought us thus far along the way, thou who has by thy might led us into the light, keep us forever in the path, we pray, lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met thee, lest our hearts,…

And the Inaugural Address!

My fellow citizens: I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition. Forty-four Americans have now…

Amen! And again I say Amen!

Bishop Gene Robinson’s invocation starting off the inaugural festivities.  (I’m so proud he’s a member of my larger faith community!) Welcome to Washington! The fun is about to begin, but first, please join me in pausing for a moment, to ask God’s blessing upon our nation and our next president. “O God of our many…

From the Sublime to the Knitting

It is a cold, wet and wintry holiday weekend in Merlin.  We have been slightly dumped with snow – nothing like our poor neighbors to the north.  Since last I checked in, dear readers, I have finished up a week of hearings and visits, spent a Saturday doing a visit and a college applicant’s interview for…

We Have A Dream

On August 28, 1963, I was nine years old when the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr. made his famous “I Have A Dream” speech from the Lincoln Memorial overlooking  the Mall in Washington, D.C. – a place where some 15 years later, John and I, too poor for playdates and “mommy and me” weekends, would…
