#22: Camping with Corona?

You may not have heard, so let me catch you up; there’s a pandemic afoot. The whole world has gone mad for toilet paper and handshaking is becoming an archaic greeting of days past.  Basketball and Baseball have been cancelled, and Tom Hanks is in quarantine with Wilson.  Schools are closed and workers everywhere areContinue reading “#22: Camping with Corona?”

#21: I’m still alive

This winter has been the winter to which all future winters will be measured against. We have endured the flu, colds, sinus and ear infections, stomach bugs with some serious vomiting, a motorcycle accident, snow, then 70 degree sunshine, then torrential rain and flooding, tornado warnings, then more snow, and a dangerous lack of hikingContinue reading “#21: I’m still alive”

Junior has discovered the fun of walking Devon.  He happily takes the leash and follows DevonContinue reading “#9: Lazy Days”
