If I Weren’t His Son

This was left in class one day as I was getting ready to go. I student-teach at the middle school for 5th and 6th graders. I’m glad to know that even in the Bible Belt South love of any gender can exist. I’m going to keep it.

July 19, 1985!!!!!

I bought my house in 2001 and hadn’t looked into the attic since then. But this year, to check the insulation, I grabbed a ladder and took a peek. My attic is one of those that is accessible only through a hatch in the ceiling, and you really can’t use it to hang out in … Continued

As I started reading the first sentence I imagined a sick grandmother writing to their grandson, then it became obvious this was a … Continued

Waited to Kiss You

Found this in the parking lot after an art show, stuffed it in my car, found it again when cleaning it up. Double-find!

Play Date

I found this Post-it note on the sidewalk while walking with my daughter. Love the bee, flower, grass, sun and cloud… I also like how Maiya’s friend switched to the red pen. Hope they had fun.
