A Tale of Two Sisters in Overalls

It was the summer of 1998. I can still remember it like it was yesterday, even though it was pre-Todd, pre-Rollie and Tiller, Pre-Quint and Simon, and Scully. Hard to imagine that now. My sister was my best friend. No one else even came close, except maybe that boy. We were parting ways. He was […]

Christmas 2009 Recap

So, here’s what we’ve been up to. . . We spent Christmas Eve at Leelee’s house. There was much cuteness of children and stuffing of our faces, and dogs running around, and Cecil drinking scotch. Todd and I brought the kids home afterwards and tucked them in, then readied for Santa Claus. Luckily, this year […]
