We’ve still got quite a few trees that were killed in one of the big storms a while back. They drop limbs every now and then and the woodpeckers enjoy them. Every now and then a regular-size storm pushes one down. Ellie made a surfer out of some of the pieces.
One young woman’s sign summed up the event for me, “I don’t usually do this but GEEZ.” In case you’re wondering about the Girl Scouts (I noticed some…hubbub), we’ve got a legacy of building leadership and advocacy.
“I have also decided to stick with love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.- This is actually a tiny fractured bit of the whole speech (“Where Do We Go From Here?”) given at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1967. You can read the full transcript here.

This morning I remembered the last time I panicked about making more stockings: I reverse engineered the stockings, typed […]
Going to the movies on Thanksgiving really is a thing! There were other people there! Now I’m cooking Tofurkey and we’re watching Gravity Falls. Did you see the Girl Scout float in the parade? First time ever.
Looks like there is a lot of work to be done.
When you are faced with that empty ballot, maybe take a deep breath and find some peace. I always think about all those “I Voted” stickers on Susan B. Anthony’s headstone. Ellie and I are 19th Amendment people. Her bedroom window is loaded with “I Voted” stickers. Then I think about the woman who were […]
