Not all those who wander are lost

Not all those who wander are lost

Anyone who has spent enough time with me knows that I have a bad habit of getting lost. Whenever I go to a meeting in a new place, I try to factor in at least 15 – 20 minutes extra to cover the time I’ll need to drive around in circles trying to find where … Continue reading

Steel monkey bars and the garden hose

How many containers of hand sanitizer so you have in your house? Go ahead and look … I can wait … One of the moms at my son Jake’s baseball game asked me that question. I didn’t have to take a few minutes to mentally walk through all the rooms in my house. It only … Continue reading

The other day my … Continue reading

If you see something, say something

My heart goes out to all those people in Aurora who were the victims of the tragic shooting. Every time I hear something or see someone talking about this on TV, I feel the tears well up in my eyes. I realize this isn’t my normal type of post for this blog so just consider … Continue reading
