Photo courtesy of https://www.redbubble.com/people/scavengereye/ I'd been wandering around the main drag and square of the active little town for a while tonight, trying to avoid the rambunctious young adult crowds meandering through the streets. Who would ...

A quiet couple of months...
...is not a bad thing, provided your status quo is at least "good enough." Our summer has been full of idleness, aside from work. OK, that's not quite true. The main regular summer activities so far have consisted of: Reading : I've finished about 5 books s...

Spring Vacacay (con't (con't))
The plans for our final day of fun had been left deliberately vague, since we knew we were doing a hike that might leave us in a less-than-able state. We were, indeed, sore on getting up and moving around a bit, and decided that another vigorous hike was pr...

My Year in Books (according to Goodreads)
Apparently I'm starting a trend. Last year I didn't intend to have my first post of the year be the book-reading summary. This year, I totally  intended it. I'm going to post the things that Goodreads reported as well as my own accounting where I disagree w...

A Yuletide Yarn, 8: Christmas Day
In his peripheral vision, Oliver could tell that it was morning. Pale grayish white light leaked in through the small window above the shower. He wasn’t sure what time it was, but knew it was still early. He rolled over, then sat up slowly. He was slightly ...

A Yuletide Yard, 7: The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come
Without preamble, Scrooge walked through the gate. Inside was a small courtyard with steps leading into the buildings on the left and the right. Scrooge turned to the right and climbed the steps. The double doors at the top were made of glass, and florescen...
