Month: June 2017

  • Annoyed Grunt

    If any fans of The Simpsons are reading this, they will understand what I mean by that title.  If not, I’ll let you in on the reasoning at the end. Well, I effed up my project.  I effed up my project in such a way that I had to perform some surgery on my afghan. […]

  • Local

    Local Locus.  Locality.  Location.  Location, location, location.  Local.  We all know what the word “local” means when we look it up in a dictionary: Adjective.  Referring to something nearby.  But what does “local” mean to each and every one of us?  I cannot speak for the other billions of human beings on this planet, but […]

  • On Fathers

    Today is Father’s Day here in the States.  It doesn’t quite get as much fanfare as Mother’s Day gets here in May (and seeing as I have at least one follower from the UK, yes, we celebrate Mother’s Day here in May instead of March like you all do).  Maybe that’s because male gender roles […]

  • Gray, Gray, Go Away

    Florida’s “wet season” has arrived in full swing after quite the dry spring.  For the last few days, the view has pretty much looked like this: And this… Even my dog is bored. From what I gather, it is gonna be like this pretty much through the next week.  Oh boy. Hopefully I will have […]

  • Her First Orbit

    On Tuesday, June 6th, my little niece will be celebrating her first birthday, the first anniversary of her entering this world and marking the completion of her first orbit around the Sun.  We celebrated her birthday a few days early, on Saturday the 3rd. What has happened in that first orbit? I remember entering that […]
