Like Pearl Harbor, the assassination of JFK, and the Challenger Space Shuttle, everyone remembers what they were doing when the news broke of a plane hitting the North Tower. Many of my friends and family were watching the news while getting ready for work. Listening in shock and confusion as speculations were made about how and … Continue reading Remember Them.
It is always a bit surreal when a plan comes together. I’m not talking an impromptu meeting of friends for Friday Margarita Happy Hour. I’m talking about a big trip. Like one to Italy. At this very moment in just three short weeks, I will be at JFK airport, flashing my passport, handing over my … Continue reading Counting Down
In my humble opinion, this week marked the official end of summer. You might argue that it is in fact, Tuesday, the day after Labor Day. But you would be wrong. You see, College Football started this week, which I believe is an official holiday in the South. In fact, they probably just tacked Labor … Continue reading Sunday Comics: Official End of Summer

Happy New Year! Yes, I know that January is nearly over. But it’s not yet–so I have a few more days before wishing someone a Happy New Year because my procrastination is in full swing becomes embarrassing (and even when it is embarrassing, I just drink more and ignore it). You gotta love friends: I … Continue reading Sunday Comics: Happy, Uh, New Year!
New York City streets are filled with a lot of things: people, dogs, trash, mysterious things you’re better off not knowing what they are…but my favorite things NYC sidewalks offer are Chalkboard Art. Merry Christmas! Continue reading Chalkboard Art: Santa
Life is funny. Recently, I went back home to Texas for a visit, which conveniently coincided with Jeff (having won last month’s challenge) setting this month’s challenge as Environment. Hailing from the Texas Hill Country Appellation, I mentally began creating bullet points about the environment of the Texas Hill Country Appellation and which wineries … Continue reading MWWC 36: Environment
The countdown is on to what has become over the years my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. I mean, how do you not love a holiday dedicated to food and family and friends and football?!?!?
