I Am Available to Take Bribes

I know you are probably figuring that with my recent $150,000 wardrobe enhancement, I’m probably doing pretty well in the cash department.

I R Stupid

I basically spent the long weekend taking photos and getting a brake job on the van. I preferred taking photos. Went with one kid and husband on Saturday, and other kid and his friend on Sunday and Monday. I will slowly fill my flickr profile with the best ones. Or the ones I feel like […]

Reflecting on Trees

Happy Columbus Day. To my Native American friends, sorry about the death and disease stuff, but we do appreciate you giving us the guest room. And the rest of the house. And the neighborhood… Reflecting on Trees, originally uploaded by Big DumpTruck.
