I Cannot Be Trusted in Public

I went on my little trip to Ohio for the wedding. See previous blog. When I got there, my daughter and her fiance took me to this international festival that they have in Dayton every year. We were there for about 2 hours and then they had to go “work” their volunteer shifts. I wandered […]

There was a Wedding!

I’ve been missing in action from the blogosphere for a minute. It was nothing personal. And it wasn’t because I was depressed and/or my life was falling apart. Quite the opposite actually. I guess I will go back to the beginning. My lovely (beautiful and most favorite) daughter told me in December that she and […]

I mean, aside from this blog. This is as non-fiction as it gets. But if you were in a literature class, however, […]

Secret Stalker Guy

I had a friend request a while back from some guy named “Tom” on Facebook. I like to look at all the details before accepting. Not that it really matters too much because my profile is pretty easily accessible whether you are a friend or not, but still, don’t want to let too many hackers […]
