    Three weeks?!?  Where does the time go?  Where were we? Ah, yes.  The caravan.  Did I mention the caravan?  No? We bought a caravan.  On purpose.  A grant old lady (almost as old as I am), lovingly maintained with original finishes by her careful owner for over 35 years.  And by ‘original finishe...

  • The New Normal

    I shouldn’t be writing this entry.  I should be working.  I have work to do – loads.  But I have to write, because this morning I was struck by how different everything suddenly is.

  • Enough is…..enough.
    May 28, 2019
    It was one of those conversations.  The kind that feels significant before either of you have actually said anything.  The kind that fills up the room with unspoken things which, when finally uttered, change everything. Some backstory: We live in paradise.  By we, I mean the inscrutable-seven of ...

  • But first, introductions
    May 27, 2019
    We're really doing it.  And, by we, I mean the ragtag bunch of humans-of-varying-sizes that constitutes Us.  Our Family. The Inscrutables. Introductions are in order (and in no particular order): Dean (47) - Handsome, handy, teller-of-terrible-jokes, extremely capable and currently gainfully empl...
