A slow start
I am having a hard time being motivated to write on a timely manner. It just might be that I'm having too much fun on my first leg of retirement. Here is my catch-up and vow to write more frequently. Cecile and I drove to Backus, Minnesota to pick up our ne...

A time to end, a time to restart
For the most part, I have only posted to this blog when I have traveled or have a new adventure. Given the demands of job and family, that was sporadic. But I'm back. With luck, laid back. I taught my last class three weeks ago and donned my cap and gown fo...

Goodbye, Saffron. And thanks for your love.
When a dog gives you her love, it is without reservation. No matter that you are at times grumpy or a slob or simply oblivious to what she offers – her warm nose and wagging tail revive your heart. And when she is gone, she leaves a hole in your soul. Saffr...

University blues -- back to school
Dear Gillian, Why is it that no matter how much I plan through the summer, I’m never ready for the start of school? It’s Friday as I write, and the first week of classes just ended at the University of Missouri School of Journalism. I’m sorting through the ...

Small town life in the heartland of America
Dear Gillian, Garrison Keeler would have been proud. Prairie Home, MO, has everything Lake Woebegone has only in dreams. Saturday, Mom and I took a winding ride to the 100th annual Prairie Home Fair – an event unlike most of us have seen for decades. It’s ...

Small Town Girl
Dear Dad, Last weekend was, as you know, my 20th High School Reunion. We'll just skip over the unbelievable fact that high school for me was 20 years ago, though -- it tends to remind me that I'm old. But in the midst of the inevitable "So where are you liv...

Thankfully, there is no cure for the Green Plague
It
would be overly polite to call the place where my father grew up a
“dirt farm.” Dirt, yes. Farm, no. It was more of a divot in the vast
forest of northern Idaho with enough bare ground that you could coax
