To the 2.5 readers who continue to stick with this haphazardly published blog, Happy (belated) Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, a blessed Kwanzaa and a Happy New Year. And if I forgot any other Holiday (Festivus?:)), please forgive me and throw that one in too. So much has been happening. My goodness, where to begin? We had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

One of our progeny is coming back from a visit to in-laws on the Eastern Shore, one is working a night … Continue reading Getting Old and Moldy
Until this morning, the skies looked like this for almost all of last week: On the Tuesday the above photos were taken, I was on my way to bell practice.
