Twenty Winks, And Then Some . . .
It's been that kind of week -- hot, air-conditioned and more of the same. Even the nights required some cooling. But each day this week was interesting from the standpoint of what the TV brought. We programmed several channels to the events in Cleveland and...

Dealing With A/C or Not . . .
It's almost embarrassing that amidst the heat of the week, we actually used the heat from the furnace a few times this week -- in the early morning hours that is. For some reason the weather was so strange this week that we went from one extreme to another ...

Diamond Jubilee -- Redaction Reaction
A Diamond Jubilee was celebrated in our home this week! A "quiet, down-home" celebration unlike some of the ones that we have seen publicly. We're into that time when simpler events are meaningful and rewarding. And that is just what we had for Gail: What i...

Grads -- Circumstances & Pomp
"Our town" had another high school graduation a couple of nights ago. We are fortunate to be the beneficiaries of some of the pomp but not a great deal of the circumstances. The pomp comes in the form of the sounds carried over the speaker system that we ca...

Decoration Day Weekend
Growing up we always celebrated "Decoration Day" on May 30 (my brother reminded me). It wasn't so  much that I had forgotten that, but hadn't really thought of it.  But I always thought that the day was celebrated due to WWI -- but I am wrong -- it was shor...

Outfront Color -- No Birds . . .
What does it mean that we have observed NO birds in our yard this year. Every year prior to this we have had so many birds that it seemed that we were making special trips for bird seed and hummingbird liquid. This year the seed level has not decreased in t...

Made in the Shade . . . 10° of Separation
Okay, so it was hot -- what else is new for Healdsburg in July? A lot I suppose, but we did have two or three days of 100° weather and NOW for the last two days it has been at least 10° cooler. Actually as I write this post and sit by the opened window ther...

Fourth & 10 . . .
After 70 some "4ths" this is pretty much a favorite holiday -- ranks up there with Thanksgiving in that as Jimmy Kimmel put it " I don't have to wrap anything".  I agree. It is just a day to reflect and enjoy. Usually we enjoy BBQ'd eats and a terrific fire...

Last Day of Spring -- Paternal Recognition
It is that day that -- before the addition of cell phones -- amounted to the largest day of collect calls across the U.S.  Some may not remember collect calling, but while Mother's Day generated one of the largest calling days of the year, Father's Day gene...

School Is Out . . . Now What?
Sure, it is easy for some, but even though it has been 50 ? some years since school has been out for some of us, that question still lingers in the memory base -- "what to do during summer vacation?" Our house borders with an elementary school and all week ...

Even though Memorial Day is not until a week from Monday, our town combines the celebration with the Future Farmers Parade and a down-home Country Fair. To keep the celebration more for the local folks, the parade is a twilight Thursday evening event (26th)...

It's All About the Moms
It is a day to reflect on who brought each one of us here to this tree. For some we can talk directly to those Moms, for others we have the memories. The last few days here have been rainy type ones. Sometimes that is just right because it matches the mood ...
