How to Be My New Best Friend

Yesterday, Mr. Dump, Junior and I took a field trip to Rockport MA, one of my favorite places in the universe. We went to just have a nice, no pressure day, just to walk around, maybe get some chowdah and an ice cream, and take a few photos. sailing past a lighthouse, originally uploaded by […]

Cities, Here We Come

Junior plays in the City Championship for Little League Baseball tonight. I think it would be REALLY cool if they won. I mean, who doesn’t go into these things hoping for a win. I’ve never been on a team that won a championship. Thinking back to my Lassie League days, I was on the team […]

They have some old-fashioned toys available for today’s modern child to try out. Junior was VERY taken with rolling a hoop and trying to get the little wooden ball into […]

Better Late Than Never, Right?

Finally got Junior’s Team added to the Jimmy Fund web site (the manager is supposed to do it, but our league didn’t, so I took matters into my own hands). [link removed] I have only a few days before the donation deadline for physical checks, but you can also use a credit or debit card […]

I’m Sorry, But I’m Cranky

Lots of reasons why, but the least of which is that Target did not have my deodorant in stock when I went in there last week. That is NOT COOL. I will be swinging by CVS to see if they still carry it, and if they don’t, all hell is going to break loose. I […]
