Happy anniversary to us!

Nine years ago yesterday, we were doing this. Many of you were there with us; some have since moved on (figuratively and literally) and many of you have since come into our lives and become such good friends that I forget you weren’t there, and was surprised when uploading wedding …

Fitcher’s Brides

Fitcher’s Brides by Gregory Frost My rating: 3 of 5 stars It’s been a few weeks and I’m still really not sure if I liked this book or not. I wanted to like it. I love fairy tales – old, dark, dangerous fairy tales that haven’t yet met Walt Disney. …

It’s not just about the lizard

Yesterday when I pulled out of the Wild Iris parking lot, turned onto University, and then stopped at the red light… I noticed this little guy. That always makes me sad. I feel like such a homewrecker. Like, somewhere, now, there’s a lizard family whose mommy or daddy won’t be …

BEBEH HEADS. I can hear Barbara now… “You’re sick, Haldeman.” Hee hee hee. I’ve also already ordered a mold for one that not only comes with disembodied hands, but he’s crying as if he as a toothache. My plan with this head is to keep making vases, in different colors. …

Easter Snowman

I got nuthin’ — here’s one from the archives! Easter, 2002. Tim’s parent’s anniversary. My first visit up to meet them after Tim and I had started dating a few months before. There was just enough snow left on the ground for me to push some together into the world’s …
