Neat Dot Picture Redux — With Tutorial

Monday, January 9th, 2012

So, I found this awesome tut through Pinterest.  It’s a rather modern art piece, simply made by any of us and quite stunning.  You can find the original here: Two Girls Being Crafty. It occurred to me while I was looking at it that it would be a little difficult for a young child to […]

It’s been a long time since I posted here. I’d like to say it’s because I was busy, or just couldn’t find the time. The truth is, I’m lazy and there hasn’t been much going on around here. Well, Steph is in college and Bill went off to the Navy last August, so I have […]

Pekingese: The mush-faced dictators

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

We’ve had several different kinds of dogs in our lives.  I used to breed Irish Setters and Cocker Spaniels.  When I was growing up, we had a toy poodle that I thought was the worst dog in the universe.  Everyone in town agreed with us.  But then I met the venerable Pekingese. We got Gizmo […]

Change is in the air

Wednesday, September 16th, 2009

I’m not talking about fall, either.  Change is everywhere and if there’s one thing I hate, it’s change.  I grew up in a house where the furniture was never re-arranged, where neighbors never moved, where nothing whatever changed for 15 years.  Now, everything’s changing. Fall is coming, that’s true.  For me, it signals an end […]

On my daughter’s departure for college

Friday, August 21st, 2009

I drove my oldest to college this week.  She’s firmly ensconced in her new dorm room.  No failure to launch here.  Her room is empty, bed standing idle, waiting.  Most of the little mementos of her life are gone.  I drove her to school yesterday, stayed the night, got her all set up in her […]

Video killed the holiday stars

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

When I was a kid, the one sure way to know that the holidays were coming was to look in the TV Guide.  Once you saw “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” listed, you knew for sure the holiday season had started.  So, you planned your week around that one night.  Your best friend HAD […]

My son’s bedroom

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

Earlier, I talked about redecorating my son, Billy’s, room.  Well, against all the odds, I finished within a week.  Now, I know there are multiple shows that can do it in one day, etc.  But they don’t have to deal with my son’s stuff and a division of efforts between that project and the daily […]

Happy Valentine’s Day

Thursday, January 3rd, 2008

This is my first attempt at styling a WordPress site, and I’ve done it for the love of my life, Patricia Lee Macomber. I’m sure she’s going to come in here and make this her own, but I wanted to give something back after all the years she’s been styling and designing things for me […]
