What is that buzzing sound? PDF Print

Although the calender may not reflect it, summer is almost over. How do I know this? Well, for one, the cicada are going crazy. According to my esteemed colleague, the earlier you hear them, the earlier the frost is. Fall may be sooner than we think; I’ve been hearing them buzz for weeks.

Sooooo. Seems time goes even faster when you’re on vacation. It’s hard to believe since it already felt like it was in warp speed.
How does it happen? I’m minding my own business, on “vacation” (or rather a staycation) and the next thing I know, it’s three days later and I haven’t really done much of anything even though my days felt like they were pretty full.

Make me cry, Lotus PDF Print

It’s that time of year again. As my faithful read this I should be back home, snuggled in bed with the furry one and recovering from a fly-by-night trip to the Columbus airport to drop my better half off for his flight to the Baltimore/Washington Airport. He will then be whisked away by his sister and family to Virginia Beach. Yes, it’s time for the fabulous Lotus to dance her heart out, bring home trophies and just generally amaze her uncle. Not that it’s that hard. We think she’s pretty amazing just by being here.

It’s so good to have things getting back to some semblance of normalcy. Sorry to those still without power.
It doesn’t take long to figure out someone’s character and fortitude in an emergency situation such as we endured this past week.

I don’t think I’ll ever forget driving home Friday afternoon during the storm and seeing the tree on my neighbors house. WOW! It was surreal — like something out of a disaster movie.

I pulled in the drive, hopped out, grabbed the garbage can and drug it around the house and fumbled for my keys. I glanced in the yard and there was a large tree branch on the picnic table that had taken out my begonias. Drat.

Why I Relay PDF Print

There are many reasons why I participate in the Relay for Life. The first and most important is because I truly believe that research is the way to beat cancer. I know there are many people who could use help with medical bills, gas, food and lodging when a family is struck by this disease. The money raised at the Relay each year would hardly touch those medical bills for one person.
