Little Trombone Boy

The maestro of the Thayer Conservatory Orchestra went to Junior’s school along with a brass quartet for the 3rd and 4th graders, and he decided he wants to play a brass instrument. He had talked about the trombone, which is an excellent instrument, don’t get me wrong, but I’m pretty sure I’m not running out […]

Blogger Is Annoying

Blogger ate half of my template tonight. Mr. Dump is sitting and waiting for me to post a message freaking out and giving them the big stink-eye. All I tried to do is correct a spelling error on my previous post, and all of a sudden my web site was just displaying a single line […]

It’s Not Really Advertising in the True Sense of the Word

I put an ad over there on the top of the right column, but it’s not really advertising per say. I don’t get paid a penny every time you click on the link, even though that might add up to two or three cents a day, if all my loyal readers become involved. No, it’s […]

Pre-Pre-Holiday Shopping

I am considering making a new Christmas holiday page for the site with all sorts of Chri holiday gifts. But not good gifts. gifts that make you sit back and say “really, did more than one person buy one of these, or did the manufacturer go out in flames because of the losses incurred by […]

Conversations with God

As astute readers have pointed out, I seem to have a very close and chatty relationship with God. They are right. God and I talk all the time. I was thinking I should document more of our conversations, but someone already wrote a book called Conversations with God. (By the way, I have that first […]

Fire Drill Conversation

Did you ever have an email conversation with someone that upon re-read just makes you giggle out loud? Allow me to share, then. Jody: As a reward, we had a fire drill! Woo hoo! Mr. Dump: WOO HOO!!! Jody: Apparently we all got out of the building in 6 minutes. What I like about the […]
