  • Brief Update

    My Dear Fans, Friends, Fiends and foes, Thank you all for your prayers and support. I apologize for not giving you updates sooner but it has been a little hectic around here. Margaret cam out of the hospital Tuesday, and had to go back to the E.R. on Wednesday for…

  • Margaret’s In The Hospital

    Margaret has been sick this past week and working overtime. She started being really sick Saturday night. She was so nauseous that she couldn’t eat or drink anything and by Sunday afternoon we thought she might be getting dehydrated, so off to the E.R. we went. Well, after the I.V.…

  • Baby Pics, Wedding Pics, and Cookies!

    Oh, I’m a baaaaaad boy! I did it. I took the last homemade chocolate chip cookie. Carter will remember Margaret making them, and every time she would, my uncle would magically appear out of nowhere. He could be on a deer stand in the middle of the Wisconsin north woods…

  • Hodgepodge Lodge

    I have had a cold for the past several days and while it has been taking its time progressing through the various stages of ickiness I have been sleeping in until 4 and sometimes even 4:30. Even when I am sitting around waiting and have my laptop I have been…

  • Dead Drunk

    “Oh we’ll smash the saloon when we’re men, We’ll hit it again and again, We shall tear it down, Down unto the ground, Oh, we’ll smash the saloon when we’re men…” “We’ll Smash the Saloon”…From a Sunday School songbook ca. 1900 called “Songs for Little Singers.” “Wine is a mocker,…

  • Apartment Hunting

    Sorry I haven’t been updating lately. A couple of things have come up. One is, I think I am fighting something off. I have been sleeping in every morning until 4:30 or quarter to five. I barely have time to read blogs and answer e-mail. Of course that isn’t real…

  • Peanut Butter Poll

    Well, my new poll is up and with 7 votes already cast for an overwhelming 71% for extra-crunchy, I really have to ask for comments, “Why?” Why would you want to take something so smooth and creamy and already peanut-ty and put things in it? Deciding to take the, er,…

  • On Racism

    Before I read Soosan’s and Daveman’s comments I had not thought about the racist possibility of crackers. I am really naïve when it comes to that stuff. I don’t use racial slurs and I don’t know very many. You guys’ comments did remind me about a story about growing up…

  • More On Crackers

    Some people who read my entry about the crackers that came in the 4-per-sheet packages also recalled them, so I looked it up. I finally wound up having the following correspondence with Nabisco. If they pioneered this then it seems logical that when I was a little boy some brands…

  • The Rat Trap

    I wasn’t thinking about what I was saying when I responded to Pops’ comment about making a scrapbook. Margaret pointed out that not everyone is going to get on here and search through my whole blog just to find news on Savannah. She thought it was a great idea. I…

  • Miscellany

    This morning I heard about yet another example of Hollyweird/Mad Ave types ruining our society’s values. There was in the news an allegation of yet another celebrity under investigation. This time, according to the radio, Kate Moss, who is apparently a supermodel, was photographed snorting cocaine. The pictures ran in…

  • Toofies and District 2

    A quick update on baby Savannah. She’s got a tooth!!! One little one right in front on the bottom. Woohoo! She’s so big now! “The Human adventure is just beginning.” I have got to get back into the habit of not only carrying 3 X 5 cards in my pocket…
